Krispy Kreme honoring Class of 2021 graduates with a dozen free doughnuts

Krispy Kreme is celebrating the class of 2021 with a sweet gift: a special batch of dozen free doughnuts on May 13.

This year’s college and high school seniors can visit a participating Krispy Kreme location wearing “class of 2021 graduation swag” for a free “Graduate Dozen” while supplies last, according to a release.

After offering the sweet gesture last year, the popular doughnut chain brings back the special complimentary dozen to celebrate graduates facing another year of hardships during the ongoing pandemic.

“It’s been a tough year for this year’s graduates, marked by virtual learning, canceled sports, limited school activities, altered or eliminated proms and non-traditional graduation ceremonies. But the class of 2021 persevered through it all,” Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme’s chief marketing officer said in a press release. “We admire them, we’re proud of them and we want to celebrate all of them by giving them a special Graduate Dozen completely free at their local Krispy Kreme.”

While the complimentary dozen for seniors is only available on May 13, the general public can still scoop the special dozen during the entire week of May 10 to May 16, at participating locations.

The box comes with an assortment of classic varieties including chocolate iced Kreme filled, strawberry iced Kreme filled, cake batter filled, chocolate iced with sprinkles, strawberry iced with sprinkles and yellow iced original glazed doughnuts.
