Well, everyone, it's almost St. Patrick's Day. And it may not be a 'get out of work and school' holiday, but we still have our fun. After all, it wouldn't be St. Patty's Day if we didn't buy, make, eat, and drink things that are as green as possible. What can we say? If you want the luck of the Irish, you've gotta work for it.
So before the day arrives, you might wanna check out some of the fun that awaits you. Stores everywhere are figuring out how to transform into a deep green wonderland! And that brings us to Krispy Kreme.
Krispy Kreme certainly has holiday traditions, like any other establishment. That means it's almost time for green doughnuts! Because it's not St. Patrick's Day if everything you eat isn't dyed completely green.
St. Patrick's Day is around the corner.Now, it's actually a celebration of Christianity's arrival in Ireland. But for most of us, it means parades, bars, shamrocks, and green everything.
Seriously, Chicago turns its whole river green.Because even on a holiday that isn't really about them, America goes hard.
As the saying goes, "Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day."Eh, after a bunch of beers at that St. Patty's pub crawl, it's probably impossible to tell who's Irish and who isn't anyway.
So stores everywhere are capitalizing on the St. Patty's mood.And if you don't know how much 'green' food you can get your hands on...well, you're about to. It's not hard to do the holiday right if you know where to go!
Maybe you're after a different round, tire-shaped treat.

If you look, you can find deals for a drink or two.

McDonald's has an old, cult-favorite milkshake.

Are you a fan of Irish Creme?
Lucky you! Our Irish Creme coffees and Mint Brownie donut are back! Get them before your luck runs out ☘️ https://t.co/2NCjfH82oJ— Dunkin' (@Dunkin')1551881488.0
And of course, the green beer.There's not even one 'main' place we can name here; green beer is just a huge thing on St. Patrick's Day.
Heck, you can make it yourself.Green beer isn't rocket science. It's just yellow and blue food coloring. Just throw the food coloring into the glass before you pour the beer and boom! Green beer.
DQ has its Mint Blizzard.
Here it is: The créme de menthe of the crop. The Mint @Oreo BLIZZARD of the Month. https://t.co/zZYf2tvlrn— Dairy Queen (@Dairy Queen)1552064011.0
Steak 'n Shake has one, too.
Every day should be this delicious. #NationalOreoCookieDay @Oreo https://t.co/hscsxbzt2s— Steak 'n Shake (@Steak 'n Shake)1551898896.0
AND so does Arby's.
via: Arby'sYou know what they say: don't fix it if it ain't broken. So it's basically just a question of which food you'd rather have with the mint shake.
There are also more savory specials.
via: Cracker BarrelFor instance, Cracker Barrel's St. Patrick's Day tradition is a 'Corned Beef 'n Cabbage' special, available from March 11th through the 17th.
You may not be used to thinking of 'Chili's' and 'St. Patrick's Day' simultaneously.
via: Chili'sBut Chili's does have a month-long St. Patty's special: the $5 Lucky Jameson Margarita.
You could just go to the grocery store.
Forget following rainbows for a pot of gold, just follow directions to your nearest ALDI for these delicious Irish… https://t.co/2KoGyV2tNE— ALDI USA (@ALDI USA)1550869272.0
Aldi also has some cheese with another special twist.No, it's not green. But it is infused with alcohol, which also qualifies it as a St. Patrick's Day special. The Irish Truckle Assortment includes an aged Irish cheddar, plus one cheese infused with whiskey and another with beer.
Or maybe you're more of a cookie person.
via: Mrs. FieldsThere are plenty of those too, like a Mrs. Fields shamrock box.
But on to the star of the show!
via: Krispy KremeBecause starting March 15, doughnut giant Krispy Kreme is bringing back its green glazed doughnuts.
Last week, Krispy Kreme made the announcement.

And you'll know what flavor you're getting.The green doughnuts aren't some new flavor; it's just a colorful adaptation of the O'riginal Glazed Doughnut.
The green dough is specially formulated.And then glazed. Voila! Krispy Kreme knows how to have a good time with its doughnuts.
They're also part of a special promotion.
via: Krispy KremeKrispy Kreme is really taking the holiday spirit into account, kicking off a year-long giveaway of free doughnuts.
