Head to Krispy Kreme for Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts on Friday, November 8. These doughnuts are Krispy Kreme's classic Original Glazed Doughnut covered in a rich chocolate glaze and are only available one Friday a month, and what better month than to visit than for National Doughnut Day? If you miss them on November 8, they will be available again on the next Chocolate Friday, on December 6.

Or, for a limited time around Thanksgiving, Krispy Kreme is offering customers pie doughnuts. The "doughnut-ized pies" come in various flavors, like Cherry Pie, Chocolate Kreme Pie, and Dutch Apple Pie. These festive treats will be available in participating stores (not including Connecticut or Hawaii) during the holiday season but check back with Krispy Kreme for a launch date.

Visit Dunkin' for the doughnuts, but be sure to try its new products launching tomorrow. There's the Beyond Sausage Sandwich, available from November 6, which is made from a plant-based protein by Beyond Meat and served with egg and cheese on an English muffin. If you can wait a little longer to try it, visit on November 8 or 9, between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m, to try the sandwich for free.

While you're there, be sure to check out Dunkin's seasonal promo, as pink cups and the peppermint mocha will both be available from November 6.

While there's not a specific promo on for National Doughnut Day, doughnut fans in California, Colorado, Nevada, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma should head to Winchell's Donut House which has dozens of varieties, is open 24 hours and gives customers 14 doughnuts in a Bakers Dozen.


To try a fun, nostalgia-flavored doughnut, head to Hardees for its Froot Loop Donuts. According to Hardees, it has "reimagined breakfast favorite into a fun, craveable treat that's great for breakfast or an anytime snack."
