It's always a great idea to keep an eye out for the birthdays of fast food companies.

To celebrate, they often give out free or discounted items from their menu that you just can't say no to.

It's a once-a-year opportunity that millions of people across the country take advantage of.

Krispy Kreme, America's favorite donut company, is celebrating its 81st anniversary, and we're as excited as they are!

On Twitter, the company announced that on Friday, July 27, customers can buy an Original Glazed Dozen for only $1.

This deal is only available on that one day! But there is a catch.

You have to buy any dozen donuts at regular price to be qualified for the promotion.

Still a good bargain if you ask me! But that's not all...

Krispy Kreme is launching a brand new donut for this special occasion, called the Glazed Confetti Donut.

This donut consists of vanilla birthday cake-flavored dough with confetti sprinkles, then glazed with Krispy Kreme's Original Glaze. And to top it all off, the donut will have colorful sprinkles.

"One of our favorite times during the year is when we get to celebrate our birthday with our fans," said Mike Tattersfield, Chief Executive Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. "In addition to offering a delicious dollar deal on an extra dozen of our Original Glazed® Doughnuts, we've "˜birthday-ed' up our awesome Original Glazed® Doughnut, creating a whole new experience."

The Glazed Confetti will only be available for one week only, until August 2 (at participating stores).

Don't forget to mark July 27 on your calendar! Who will you share these delicious treats with?
