Free Doughnuts at Dunkin', Krispy Kreme Today for National Doughnut Day!
D'oh! Get your free doughnuts!
Everyone loves a doughnut. Want to test our theory? Bring a few dozen into the office and watch a crowd form as if gold bullion were being given away. We suggest standing back so as to not get caught in the stampede.
These little fried cakes go back to the 19th century, when Dutch settlers brought their version, the oliekoek, with them to the New World.
Whether you spell them doughnuts or donuts, we love them filled with jelly, covered in powdered sugar, coated with chocolate -- but most of all, we love them when they're free.
To celebrate National Doughnut Day on June 1, both Krispy Kreme and Dunkin' Donuts are offering free treats -- just for the asking. Here's the dealio:
Stop in at Krispy Kreme for a free doughnut. No purchase is necessary -- just ask. For an even warmer experience, be sure to visit during the stores' red-light hours, when doughnuts arrive straight from the oven, the doughnut still warm and the glaze moist.
Red-light hours for the Miami location (590 NE 167th St.) are from 5:30 to 11 a.m., and again from 4:30 to 11 p.m, daily.
Red-light hours for the Florida City location (32999 S. Dixie Hwy.) are 6 to 11 a.m., and again from 6 to 11 p.m. daily.
Doughnut fans are being asked to tweet their love for Krispy Kreme on Twitter @KrispyKreme #NationalDoughnutDay.
Participating Dunkin' Donuts locations in South Florida will offer guests a free doughnut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage. Tweet your DD love to @DDSofla.
Dunkin' is also giving away free aliens as a tie-in to Men in Black 3. Once the critter is captured in your smartphone, you can teach him how to talk and feed him iced coffee and doughnuts (because all we need is to be invaded by caffeinated extraterrestrials that are high on sugar). Call **DD(33) or search the iPhone App store for Dunkin' MIB3 Capture to get your alien now.
