Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is celebrating its 80th birthday on Friday, July 14, 2017. Therefore, there is a treat in store for customers. For only 80 cents, anyone can purchase a second dozen of Original Glazed doughnuts after purchasing one dozen of any type of doughnuts at the regular price.

Pick up an extra dozen

Pick up an extra dozen and take them to work to share with others in the workplace. They might hang around your desk until they are all gone. It would be a good way to start the weekend. The Original Glazed doughnut is made from a secret recipe that goes back many generations.

For 80 years, the glazed doughnuts have remained the same, and people love them especially when they are hot and fresh.

Ultimate fan

It is no secret that millions love Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, but there are some people who favor Dunkin' Donuts. They are both described as coffeehouses, but people usually go there for the fried dough instead of going for just coffee. Both places sell the round fried dough confectionery treat.

Shaquille O'Neal is one of Krispy Kreme's fans. The 45-year-old old retired basketball player owns a franchise in Atlanta, but it is his goal to own at least 100 shops, according to TMZ. He appeared on "Good Morning America" with lots of doughnuts for the hosts and audience.

That other donut place

While their products might look the same, the two establishments are quite different. For instance, you buy doughnuts from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, but you buy donuts from Dunkin' Donuts. The distinction is in their names: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Dunkin' Donuts. Both establishments have plain and filled doughnuts.

It is a matter of personal preference which places customers favor over the other.

Krispy Kreme is based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Dunkin' Donuts is based in Canton, Massachusetts. Krispy Kreme has 1,004 locations across the United States Canada, and other countries with about 4,300 employees. Even though Dunkin' Donuts is a much younger company, it has 12,000 restaurants in 36 countries.

It has been around since 1967. That means it is only 50 years old compared to Krispy Kreme's 80 years.

Police officers are known to go to a place where they can get donuts on their breaks. So, which place do they usually go to? The habit of police eating doughnuts dates back to World War II when they could always find a coffeehouse that was opened in the early hours of the morning when no other eateries were opened. That tradition still exists today. Therefore, it doesn't seem strange to see the men and women in blue sitting at a table in one of the donuts shops
