This is not a drill.

Acknowledging that our days are sort of running into one another during these unprecedented times, Krispy Kreme has decided to turn its much anticipated National Doughnut Day into a doughnut week for the very first time. Lovers of sweets all around the country will be able to gobble up free doughnuts for five days straight, starting June 1 through June 5. 

"National Doughnut Day is one of our favorite holidays to celebrate, but with days starting to blur together, we want to make sure it's easier than ever for fans to participate," said Dave Skena, chief marketing officer for the company, in an official statement. "That's why, this year, we're extending our beloved free doughnut tradition from one day to five days with the very first National Doughnut Week." 

Although delivery isn't an option and you can only put your hands on a single treat per day, the very good news is you don't have to purchase anything else to receive the free doughnut. There's more: for the very first time, you'll actually get to choose the flavor you want—try five different ones in the span of the promotion, perhaps?

Although plans to open a slew of locations—including a 24-hour Times Square flagship in New York—are on hold given the current pandemic, patrons will get to indulge in the free treats at all currently open venues around the United States, including drive-throughs. We're going to start dieting right now.
