Somewhere behind Groundhog's Day and National Grilled Cheese Day we find another chance to reflect on a favorite national past time. That would be June 1, also known as National Doughnut Day. To celebrate this holiest of publicist-driven holidays, Krispy Kreme is offering a free donut starting at 12 a.m. Friday in its drive-thru and then inside its store at 5:30 a.m. Here's the fine print: no purchase is necessary, and Ã©clairs or doughnut holes are not eligible in this offer.
For those keeping score at home, you might remember Krispy Kreme made a huge splash with an ambitious expansion plan during the 1990s. However, the company has since downsized significantly. That's left Roseville as the remaining Sacramento area Krispy Kreme location at 10317 Fairway Dr. (916-797-2221). Doughnut fans a little farther south can claim this free donut deal at two Stockton locations: 2809 West March Lane, and 7860 West Lane.
