I am not attempting to enter the heated debate on doughnut store superiority, but rather to present a fact: free doughnuts are the best doughnuts. Today Krispy Kreme is celebrating National Doughnut Day by giving each customer a complimentary doughnut of their choice. As an employee who patiently answered my incredulous questions put it -- “no coupon, no lines, just come in and get the doughnut.” If you can’t make it to the Thornton or Lone Tree franchises by their 10 p.m. closing today, make sure you don’t miss out next year and mark your calendars for the future first Friday of June.
I imagine Winchell’s and LaMar’s might be feeling a bit lonely for the day.
Get your gratuitous glazed goodness at 1051 East 120th Avenue Thornton, CO 80233 or 7514 East Parkway Drive, Lone Tree, CO 80124.
