Still, for those of us still mourning the birthday bash that might have been, Krispy Kreme has come up wit the goods - or at least, for those of us whose birthdays land between 23 March and 3 July.
Did you spend your birthday in lockdown?
On Friday, July 17, the doughnut chain will be giving away a dozen free Original Glazed doughnuts with the purchase of an original dozen doughnuts, to celebrate Krispy Kreme's 83rd birthday. In celebration of its 83rd birthday, you'll have the opportunity to get a box of one dozen Original Glazed donuts for free.More news: Harvey Price is in 'stable condition' but remains in ICU
Leave it to Krispy Kreme to give its customers a gift on its birthday. Don't forget to tag your friends/family - they can enjoy a tasty belated celebration too! Buy any product (minimum value £1.55) and get a complimentary Original Glazed. While Krispy Kreme has been emphasising its delivery during the coronavirus pandemic, the free dozen doughnuts are not available for delivery.
Naturally, there's a catch - to qualify for the freebie you need to have celebrated a birthday between March 13 and July 13. Limited to one redemption per person per transaction.
I honestly can't argue with free Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and as an attention-points-hungry Gemini I'll 100% be sliding into my local Krispy Kreme shop to grab a dozen glazed babies to make up for the fact I couldn't have my yearly huge birthday party at the pub this year.More news: HK riot instigator Jimmy Lai's case postponed as further inquiries needed
