After a year of virtual learning, canceled sports and limited social events, this year’s graduating seniors are also facing a non-traditional graduation. Just like last year’s seniors, many students are once again marking graduation with virtual commencements, drive-by celebrations and yard signs and front door decorations.

But there are still some sweet opportunities for seniors. Krispy Kreme is bringing back their tasty way of celebrating graduates — with special doughnuts, of course. Their “Graduate Dozen” box includes a variety of fan-favorite doughnuts dressed up to honor the class of 2021, spelling out “2021” in a row.

Flavors include chocolate iced kreme filled, original glazed white iced, cake-batter filled, strawberry iced kreme filled and yellow iced original glazed. The limited-edition dozen will be available May 10-16 via drive-thru, in-shop or by ordering online via Krispy Kreme’s website or app, while supplies last.

As an extra-special treat, on May 13, the Graduate Dozen will be free to any high school or college senior who visits a Krispy Kreme dressed in their graduation cap and gown or “Class of 2021” apparel (T-shirt, sweatshirt, letterman jacket, etc.). There is no purchase necessary.


If you’re looking for more than some doughnuts to celebrate, Sam’s Club is once again offering smaller-sized graduation cakes for at-home celebrations.

The personalized cakes are available in their bakeries in various sizes, ranging from a 10-inch single-layer cake that serves eight to a mini two-tier cake that serves 12 or a quarter sheet cake that serves 24. You can also order individual cupcakes in 15 or 30 count.

Each cake can be personalized with the graduate’s school colors, a heartfelt message or even their photo. Because they’re specially made, the cakes are only available for order from your local Sam’s Club.
