CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To cap “Bracket Season” at Krispy Kreme, if either the women’s or men’s basketball championship is “decided by a dozen” points Sunday and Monday (respectively), everyone who visits a participating Krispy Kreme shop in the United States on Tuesday, April 5, can receive one FREE dozen Original Glazed® doughnuts.*
This is NOT an April Fool’s Day joke!
Twenty years ago, both the women’s and men’s national basketball championships were decided by 12 points – the only time in the history of the tournaments that has happened in the same year.
In 2002, the University of Connecticut defeated the University of Oklahoma 82-70 in the women’s championship and the University of Maryland beat Indiana University Bloomington 64‑52 in the men’s final. Combined, the men’s and women’s championships have been decided by a dozen points nine times in 121 games dating to the 1930s. So far in the 2022 men’s and women’s tournaments, a total of five games have been decided by a dozen.
Should either championship game be decided by a dozen, each guest who visits a participating Krispy Kreme shop in the United States (either in shop or via drive thru) on April 5 may receive one dozen Original Glazed doughnuts while supplies last.
To sweeten the experience, through April 4 everyone who joins Krispy Kreme Rewards can get a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts for just $1 with the purchase of any regularly priced dozen** and a free Original Glazed doughnut for showing proof of either a busted or booming bracket for any tournament.***
