You may not have won the lottery, but Krispy Kreme's latest deal is the only jackpot you need.

Today, Thursday, Jan. 14, you can get a dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts at Krispy Kreme for $4.99 at all participating shops in the U.S. (call your local store to confirm participation). That's a pretty sweet discount, as a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts usually goes for about $8, depending on your location. It'll help make up for some of the money you spent on Powerball tickets, right? (That's definitely how math works.)
