What’s better than a fresh-made, delicious donut? A free one of course! This week you can get nearly-free donuts for your entire family to celebrate Krispy Kreme’s anniversary. The 81-year-old icon will be giving away a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts for $1 this Frid., Jul. 27.

To celebrate its 81st anniversary, Krispy Kreme will be offering customers one dozen Original Glazed donuts for just $1—with the purchase of any dozen donuts, which regular retails for about $8. If you’re wondering what to order for that first dozen, you’ll probably want to fill the entire box with Krispy Kreme’s  latest limited edition—the Glazed Confetti Donut—making its debut on Friday.

As part of the company’s anniversary celebration, the new Glazed Confetti Donut will only be available from Jul. 27 to Aug. 2. Krispy Kreme describes the special donut as a vanilla birthday cake-flavored dough topped with its signature original glaze and colorful sprinkles.

If you haven’t been to Krispy Kreme lately, you might also want to try some of the other special summer-only flavors, like Strawberries and Kreme or Banana Pudding donuts.

Between these and Friday’s limited edition Glazed Confetti donuts, you can come home with two dozen gorgeous, summer-y (and super delicious) treats for basically less than $10. Now that’s one awesome way to end the week!
