It's World Smile Day.

We all need a reason to smile these days and Krispy Kreme have actually come up with a novel way of spreading some smiley faces around... and if you're not super mortified by the concept, you could get a free donut out of it.

Starting today and running all next week, if you attend the Blanchardstown Krispy Kreme drive-thru in Dublin, you can show your gratitude to staff by giving a big smile (or a thumbs up) and Krispy Kreme will offer you a complimentary original glazed donut with your purchase.

The Original Glazed in all its glory

World Smile day was created in 1999 by commercial artist Harvey Ball. It came about as a response to his creation of the smiley face in the 60s, he wanted to stop the commercialisation of the infamous symbol and bring the roots of the smiley face back to humanity. The celebration aspects of the day are simple yet effective: people should use the day to smile and make small acts of kindness worldwide. By doing so, you’d smile and in return, you’d make someone else smile and brighten up their day.

So get smiling lads, and why not throw in a free donut for good measure!

The Krispy Kreme offer entitles a customer who smiles or puts a thumb up to the team at Blanchardstown drive thru to a complimentary Original Glazed with purchase. This offer is valid 2nd - 7th October only and limited to one redemption per car per day.
