Know when the Hot Light goes on from your desk

the Krispy Kreme hot lightIt’s that time of the holiday season that finds you spending hours on the road as you go to the last of those holiday parties or as you head out to visit family. Part of that tradition for many includes hunting for the almost elusive Krispy Kreme “Hot Now” sign (the company calls it the “Hot Light”) for a glazed treat (or two) to help give you the energy to get to your final destination.

The folks at the popular donut chain have made that search just a little bit easier now with the launch of their new Hot Light apps for the desktop and your iOS or Android smartphone. The apps allow you to select the location closest to your home while also letting you know where the closest location to you with an activated “Hot Light” is when you’re out and about.

Yep, this may explain mass exoduses from offices for many in the coming days…

Because we don’t want you to be hungry

Krispy Kreme glazedWhy else would we make sure that you know about free ice cream day and free pancake day? Today we’re making sure you know about free doughnut day. The first Friday in June is always National Doughnut Day. Really, I’m not making this up. Head to your nearest Krispy Kreme (here are the metro area locations) and pick up a chocolate glazed or raspberry-filled treat. It’s your choice. And because those doughnuts are made hot and fresh all day long, don’t worry that you missed out on breakfast. You can stop by for an afternoon snack or make it your lunch. We’re not judging, just enjoying.
