Krispy Kreme is looking to make the switch to daylight savings time a little easier this year, as we prepare to "spring forward" this weekend. Only a company like Krispy Kreme could find away to make lots of folks happy about losing an hour of sleep, and a fresh doughnut sure would make the transition a little easier, wouldn't it?
Daylight savings time takes effect Sunday March 9, and according to the official Krispy Kreme website, participating US and Canadian Krispy Kreme stores will be handing out the chain's signature Original Glazed doughnut for free to anyone who stops by. To sweeten the deal even further, you won't even be required to purchase anything else in order to enjoy a fresh Original Glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut.
Unfortunately for some Texans, the free Krispy Kreme doughnut promotion will not be valid in Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, Laredo, San Marcos, or McAllen. Uncasville Connecticut will also miss out on the free doughnut extravaganza, as will residents in Puerto Rico.
Thousands of people have already joined the free Krispy Kreme doughnut Facebook event page and many are sharing their excitement for free doughnuts this Sunday when daylight savings time rolls around once again.
"You don't have to tell me twice!! Free Krispy Kreme donut...yes please!!" wrote one commenter.
Another said, " I haven't had a donut in at least 3 months. I think its time".
I couldn't agree more.
The free Krispy Kreme doughnut giveaway kicks off at 5 am on Sunday March 9. The daylight savings time change takes place at 2 am that morning, with clocks moving ahead one hour. Each visitor will be receive one free Original Glazed doughnut. It's too bad those new Latte flavored Krispy Kreme's the Inquisitr talked about last month aren't included. Even so, it should still make for a delicious journey to your local store.
This isn't the first time Krispy Kreme has given away their doughnuts for free. Free glazed doughnuts have been given out to hungry patrons for Valentine's Day, and talk like a pirate day.
Say what you will about the empty calories these delicious Original Glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts pack, but getting a free doughnut is an opportunity that's hard to pass up. What about you? Will you be heading to your local Krispy Kreme to pick up your free doughnut this Sunday and make the switch to daylight savings time a little sweeter?
