Participating Krispy Kreme stores will be giving out star-shaped doughnuts with red, white and blue sprinkles to people who come in with "I Voted" stickers. From PR Newswire, Krispy Kreme Chef Ron Ruponcinski puts it this way: "We can't guarantee that your candidate of preference will win on November 4, but we can guarantee that your right to voice your choice will be rewarded with a patriotic doughnut that will remind you just how tasty freedom really is..." Mmm, sugary freedom. The release warns that not all doughnuts will be star-shaped—some will be circular, with red, white and blue sprinkles. [PR Newswire]
