From a press release:

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will celebrate the 80th birthday of its iconic original glazed doughnut on Friday, July 14, a day after Krispy Kreme opened its doors for the first time in 1937. Guests can enjoy a dozen original glazed doughnuts for just 80 cents with the purchase of any dozen at regular menu price that day at participating shops across the United States and Canada, including stores in Scranton and Clarks Summit.

“The joy created by our original glazed doughnut and its secret recipe spans generations, and that is certainly something to celebrate,” said Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

“It’s remarkable that for 80 years, Krispy Kreme’s commitment to delivering world-class doughnuts the Krispy Kreme way – hot, fresh, and now – has not changed.”

Guests are invited to show how they celebrate Krispy Kreme’s #OriginalGlazed on July 14 by posting a photo with the original glazed doughnut and tagging @krispykreme. Krispy Kreme franchisee Shaquille O’Neal celebrated 80 years by throwing a surprise birthday party with customers:

Krispy Kreme also recently announced the return of the ultimate party doughnut – their cake batter doughnut is filled with a yummy blend of yellow cake batter and “White Kreme” filling and topped with yellow icing and confetti sprinkles. The birthday batter doughnut will remain a menu item at participating shops.
