But if the promise of doughy, gooey goodness for no cost is too good for you to pass up, run over to your nearest Dunkin’ Donuts (DNKN) or Krispy Kreme (KKD) to pick one up. (The running will help burn off the calories.)
Dunkin’ Donuts is giving away free rings of deliciousness to anyone who buys a beverage. Or, if you’re already hyped up on coffee, you can get the new glazed donut breakfast sandwich: bacon and egg between a glazed donut. (Defying all logic, it’s only 360 calories.)
You can also head over to Krispy Kreme and pick up a free donut with no strings attached. But only if you get there before the throngs of people clawing for their free, tasty calories.
(And for the really ambitious — or just hungry — no one’s stopping you from making a stop at both brands. Face that sugar crash with courage.)
