Krispy Kreme is giving away 1million free doughnuts next week – how to get one

3 mins read


KRISPY Kreme is giving away one million free doughnuts next week to lucky customers.

You’ll be able to pick up an original glazed doughnut, which usually costs £1.10, without spending a penny from next Monday.

Ultimately, you can pay for your doughnut with a smile

The offer launches next week but you’ll have to be quick to nab a freebie as it ends on May 16.

That’s because Krispy Kreme wants to keep Brits happy until May 17 when the next stage of lockdown restrictions are eased.

Stage three of the roadmap will see friends and family able to meet up indoors – something many have been unable to do in seven months.

To get your hands on the sweet snacks, you’ll need to head to a Krispy Kreme store and prove to staff that you’re “reconnecting” with someone.

This could be a social media post you may have been sent, or a photo, text, or post-it note, that’s captioned with #SmilesAsCurrency.

Once you’ve shown your example you’ll then be able to enjoy the treat free of charge and you don’t have to buy anything else either to validate your freebie.

The offer is only valid in Krispy Kreme UK stores though, so you won’t be able to get one in the supermarket or via delivery.

To find your nearest branch, you can use the free store locator tool.

Nadine Singler, Krispy Kreme’s head of marketing said: “We want to celebrate all of those little things that make you smile by giving away up to 1million doughnuts in a week to those that connect and smile from cheek to cheek! Come on Britain get connecting”.


The doughnut good-will has taken place before after the first lockdown, when Krispy Kremes snacks were offered to healthcare workers for free.

Plus the store gave away free doughnuts to everyone who had a lockdown birthday last year too.

That kept doughnut fans happy as well as Krispy Kreme previously launching its own Ice Kreme that tasted just like doughnuts.
