Beginning Thursday, March 9, Krispy Kreme ushers in the spring holidays with a St. Patrick’s Day-themed collection that is sure to be as bright and festive as the holiday that inspired it.

Anyone who wants to try one of these doughnuts for free can visit a location on March 16 and 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) dressed in green and get one free green O’riginal Glazed at participating shops.

If a free doughnut isn’t a great way to capture the luck of the Irish, I’m not sure what is!
