Race you there!

If you’re a big fan of donuts, or know someone that is tomorrow is looking like the perfect day to pick up a ring shaped treat.

While new to Ireland, famous donut chain Krispy Kreme is turning 85 years old (yes 85) and to celebrate they are running a massive sale across their stores.

Krispy Kreme is encouraging doughnut-lovers to celebrate their 85th birthday with friends, family, colleagues and loved ones by dropping the price of ANY of their dozens to just €8.50 on Friday 15th July.

As a birthday party it can’t get much sweeter!

Fans can also choose their 12 favourite doughnuts and make a Choose Your Own Dozen for nearly half the price so that everyone in the group can enjoy the a-glaze-ing milestone with their desired doughnut.

Krispy Kreme was founded in 1937 by Vernon Rudolph, who began selling doughnuts to grocery stores.

Romanced by the irresistible scent of doughnut-making drifting into the streets, passers-by asked if they could buy hot, fresh doughnuts.

So, Rudolph cut a hole in an outside wall and began selling Original Glazed doughnuts directly to customers on the sidewalk.

In the 85 years since, Krispy Kreme has evolved its menu to introduce a range of delicious doughnut innovations but has never changed the secret recipe of the Original Glazed doughnut, enjoyed by generations.

As well as their birthday sale, when you visit the Blanchardstown Hotlight store during Hotlight Hour (marked by the ‘Hot Now’ sign lighting up in red), you can get a FREE Hot Original Glazed Doughnut with no purchase necessary.

As a big fan of donuts I think I might just have to grab myself a few treats tomorrow, what about you?
