As the graduate moves the tassel and walks across the stage, that simple gesture represents years of hard work. The long study hours have paid off and it is time to celebrate. Luckily, the Krispy Kreme Graduate Dozen is back. A little sweet treat is a great reward.

The past several years have been far from normal. From virtual classes to non-traditional ceremonies, these students have been through a lot. Even though that final moment walking across the stage will be filled with cheers, the path to get there wasn’t an easy one.

As Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme, said, “With the return of graduation ceremonies and a sense of ‘normal,’ it would be easy to forget how much of these seniors’ high school or college years were turned upside down by COVID‑19. We didn’t forget, so we’re celebrating their perseverance and accomplishments!”

To help seniors celebrate, Krispy Kreme will be offering a free Senior Day Dozen. To receive this free food offer, seniors should visit their participating Krispy Kreme location on May 25 dress in Class of ‘22 swag or their cap and gown. They will receive a free Senior Day Dozen while supplies last.

The special Krispy Kreme Graduate Dozen includes eight Original Glazed doughnuts and four custom 2022 doughnuts. Those doughnuts are Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled Doughnut, Original Glazed, White Iced “0” Doughnut, Cake Batter Filled Doughnut, and Strawberry Iced Kreme™ Filled Doughnut. It will be up to the graduate which special doughnut they will enjoy first.

In addition to the free dozen offer for graduates, the Krispy Kreme Graduate Dozen can be purchased May 23-24 and May 26-29. The offer will be available in stores, via the drive-thru and can be ordered online or via the app. That dozen can be the centerpiece of any special celebration.
