No Joke: Krispy Kreme Offering Free Doughnuts April 1

The chain said the promotion is all thanks to "this year's doughnut harvest"

It might be April Fool's Day, but Krispy Kreme says this is no joke — the company is giving away free doughnuts to customers on April 1 at many locations. 

"This offer is real," said Sarah Roof, corporate communications coordinator for Krispy Kreme.

Customers will receive "one free Original Glazed doughnut at participating U.S. shops."

The chain said the promotion is thanks to "this year's doughnut harvest."

"This year, on account of the unusually fair winter, the Doughnut Harvest was especially bountiful," the chain said in a release. "Now, for the first time, the surplus is so great we are inviting guests everywhere to join us in celebration."
