Krispy Kreme promises that this is no April Fools’ Day joke.

The beloved doughnut purveyor announced on the Krispy Kreme Facebook page that the company is giving away a glazed doughnut to anyone who shows up April 1.

The giveaway appears real, even though it’s being advertised as part of a less-believable event – the annual doughnut harvest:

“Every day, guests around the world come to Krispy Kreme to enjoy the fresh, sweet-tasting doughnuts we’ve cultivated expressly for their delight.

Cultivated, we say, because each year the Doughnut Harvest yields hundreds of thousands of bushels of doughnettes—each one carefully nurtured from a doughnut seedling, then individually selected by our master doughnut growers at the peak of freshness—which are then brought into our shops for final glazing or hand-decorating.

This year, on account of the unusually fair winter, the Doughnut Harvest was especially bountiful. Now, for the first time, the surplus is so great we are inviting guests everywhere to join us in celebration.”

The only catch? The free doughnuts will only be given out at participating Krispy Kreme locations only.

See the list of locations that are not participating in the giveaway on the Krispy Kreme website.
