Members of the Class of 2023 are in for a sweet treat: Free doughnuts. Or, in doughnut speak, a "dough-ploma."
Popular glazed doughnut shop Krispy Kreme will celebrate 2023 high school and college graduates this week by gifting them with a free box of their Original Glazed dozen doughnuts, a release from the company says.
"We started this during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we haven’t forgotten that the lives of this year’s graduates were heavily impacted by the pandemic," Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme said in a press release. "We are thrilled to celebrate their perseverance and spirit the best way we know how: free Original Glazed doughnuts."
This year, the glazed doughnuts will be extra special: They'll come nestled inside "Dough-ploma"-wrapped box. And according to the release, the "Dough-ploma" dozen is a bit easier to get than the real thing, as long as you're willing to sport your senior swag.
