KRISPY Kreme fans can get boxes of 12 glazed doughnuts at a 50 per cent discount in August under the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
The chain is taking part in the government's discount scheme, meaning you can get everything on its menu, including drinks, at half price if you dine in.

But Krispy Kreme is going further and is also offering 50 per cent off a dozen signature doughnuts in August for customers who take away.
It means you can get a box of 12 treats for £5.23, down from £10.45, making it 44p per doughnut.
The offer is available in Krispy Kreme's standalone stores Monday to Wednesday throughout August – the same as the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
The Sun has asked whether the offer is only available for customers who pop by a store or whether you can get it for delivery too, so we'll update this article once we hear back.
How does the Eat Out to Help out scheme work?
THE money-saving initiative was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in a bid to boost the struggling tourism industry and economy.
Eat Out To Help Out will run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays every week until August 31.
The government will cover the other half of the bill, up to £10 per head, to boost the hospitality industry post-coronavirus lockdown.
The discount includes soft drinks and children's meals too, although it won't cover any booze ordered to go with your food.
It will see an £80 bill for a family of four reduced to just £40.
Businesses will need to register with the scheme on Gov.uk before being able to offer the discount, as well as be Food Standards Agency approved.
Instead of issuing discount vouchers – which the government felt increased the risk of fraud – restaurants, cafes and pubs will be able to claim back the cash.
The refund will then be transferred into restaurants, cafes and pubs' bank accounts within five working days.
Customers will only receive the discount if they eat out at a registered business.
Just keep in mind that the treats are only available as long as stocks last each day.
