In conjunction with their “Celebrate Chocolate” theme, Krispy Kreme pairs the Dark Chocolate doughnut with their European Dark Hot Chocolate. The hot chocolate is topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle. Be careful, though – this combination may be delicious, warm and filling during the brutal weather we’ve been experiencing this winter, but it’s deadly to your diet.
The Dark Chocolate Doughnut has 360 calories, 22 grams of fat and 40 grams of carbohydrates. A 16 ounce Hot Chocolate contains 320 calories, 8 grams of fat and 85 grams of carbohydrates. If you choose this afternoon snack, you’ll need to spend more than 3 hours walking at a brisk pace or play racquetball for more than an hour and a half to counteract it.

In honor of this day, established in 1938 by the Salvation Army to raise funds to help people in need, Krispy Kreme is offering customers one FREE doughnut of any variety at participating U.S. store locations on Friday, June 4. No purchase is necessary to receive a free doughnut.
"On National Doughnut Day, Krispy Kreme is encouraging everyone to stop by for a free doughnut," says Ron Rupocinski, corporate chef of Krispy Kreme. "While my preferred indulgence is the signature Original Glazed(R) doughnut, we are inviting our guests to select their favorite doughnut. Make life a little sweeter by visiting your local Krispy Kreme store with your friends and family."
Krispy Kreme wants everyone to join the chatter about National Doughnut Day. Log on to Twitter to Tweet your desired doughnut variety with the hashtag #KrispyKreme. Take a picture of yourself at Krispy Kreme with your favorite doughnut and post it to Krispy Kreme's Facebook fan page. Also, send a Twitpic to your friends and followers, and remind them not to miss out on getting their free goodie.
The offer is good for one doughnut of any variety per customer. To find a participating U.S. store near you, visit www.krispykreme.com.
