Big Krispy Kreme news guys (and no, this time it doesn't involve any unfortunately-named events): The beloved donut chain is opening is 1,000th store on Tuesday, February 24 (that's tomorrow) in Kansas City, KS — and in honor of the occasion, Krispy Kreme is giving away free donuts worldwide. You heard me: No matter where you are in the world tomorrow, if there is a Krispy Kreme near you, you can snag a free pastry. You guys already know that pastries and free stuff are two of my favorite things, so I probably don't need to tell you that I'm more excited by the idea than any grownass adult probably should be. I have no regrets about it, either. None whatsoever.
Unlike many of Krispy Kreme's free donut promotions, this one doesn't require you to dress up or talk like a pirate. All you have to do is show up at your local Krispy Kreme early enough in the day to be one of the first 1,000 people through the door. As a reward for your punctuality, Krispy Kreme will bestow one glorious Original Glazed donut upon you — one donut per person — which you will them proceed to devour with all the glee for which a free donut calls. The promo's fine print specifies that the offer isn't valid at grocery stores or wholesale locations (side note: You can get Krispy Kreme donuts wholesale?); however, it also makes note of every single country in which it will be available: Besides the U.S., you're good to go as long as you're in Australia, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand, and the UK.
But wait! There's more!
Remember how I said this whole shebang was in honor of the fact that Krispy Kreme is opening their 1,000th location in Kansas City, KS tomorrow? Well, in the event that you happen to be near that particular shop, there's an even better deal going on: If you manage to be one of the first 100 people through the door at the new 7648 State Avenue location, you will be entitled to a free dozen of Original Glazed donuts each month for the next year. There's also a free T-shirt in the bargain for the first 150 people through the door, but let's face it: It's the free-donuts-for-a-year thing that's the real draw here.
