Krispy Kreme gifts buyers free doughnuts

WINSTON-SALEM N.C. Krispy Kreme is giving away coupons for free doughnuts to purchasers of a dozen of the brand’s treats.


Any customer who buys a dozen doughnuts will receive 12 gift tags, each with a coupon on the back for one free doughnut, which can be redeemed in January, the company said Monday. The offer is good through Dec. 25 at participating stores.



The 494-unit chain also introduced four holiday-theme doughnuts: a snowman-shaped doughnut; a doughnut with white icing and green peppermint drizzles; a doughnut with red peppermint icing; and a doughnut with white icing and green and red sprinkles.



The holiday doughnuts are priced at 99 cents each or $6.99 for a dozen, said a spokeswoman for franchisor Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc. The new doughnuts also are part of a Holiday Combo, featuring a dozen of the seasonal doughnuts and a dozen of the chain's signature glazed doughnuts for $11.98.



The holiday doughnuts and combo will be sold through Dec. 25, Krispy Kreme said.



Parent company Krispy Kreme International has struggled against years of declining sales and is scheduled to report its latest quarterly results on Dec. 11.
