How did doughnut become donut?
Whether you’ve had one for breakfast or as a mid day treat…have you ever stopped to wonder why this common pastry favorite has an additional shortened spelling? Buzz60’s Natasha Abellard has the story.
Time to plan for a sweet deal: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is bringing back its annual “Day of the Dozens” Sunday.
With the purchase of any dozen doughnuts at regular price Sunday, get a dozen of the chain’s Original Glazed Doughnuts for $1. The deal day is a play on the date Dec. 12.
But the members of the chain’s free rewards program get two days of early access to the offer – Friday and Saturday.
Doughnuts in the limited-time Let It Snow Collection can be purchased at full price to get the $1 glazed dozen. The festive doughnuts include the Poppy Penguin, Snowman Smile, Snowy Sprinkle Doughnut and the returning Santa Belly and Chocolate Iced with Holiday Sprinkles doughnuts.

“Day of the Dozens has become a favorite holiday treat for Krispy Kreme fans because getting a second dozen for $1 means there is plenty to share with family and friends” Dave Skena, the chain’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement.
♦Savings tip: One of the easiest ways to save money is with rewards and loyalty programs. Sometimes it’s the key to accessing deals. For instance, if you want to try McDonald’s Mariah Menu rolling out Monday, Dec. 13, you need to have the fast-food chain’s app. Being signed up for rewards programs was also needed last week to get a Burger King Whopper for 37 cents and to save 10% on Target gift cards.
