The longest day of the year means more time to eat donuts.

Krispy Kreme is celebrating the first day of summer and longest day of the year (Thursday, June 20) with four days of deals.

To kick off the week, customers can score a half-priced dozen of original glazed donuts. From Monday, June 17, through Wednesday, June 19, the donut chain is handing out half-off treats from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. leading up to the actual day of the summer solstice. Fans can score the deal in person or online with the code HOTNOW.

On Thursday, June 20, cleverly coined the “Hot Light-est” day in reference to the shop's neon sign, Krispy Kreme is taking the discount up a notch. Fans can buy any dozen donuts and then get a dozen glazed donuts for $1 all day when ordering in stores or online with the code SUMMER.

A spokesperson for the brand also reveals that Krispy Kreme will randomly select guests to receive a free glazed dozen on Thursday.
