The iconic bakery will be whipping up free, jam donuts straight from the fryer and it promises to be a party in your mouth. Doused in sugar and piped with lashing of delicious raspberry jam, these balls of light and tasty goodness are made for instantaneous human vacuuming.

Since the first donut machine was invented in 1920, in New York City, by a man named Adolph Levitt, these little round morsels have evolved, with many an influx in house made doughnuts that boast bold new flavours, new dough-making techniques and an all-new type of sweet sensation.

While there’s no doubt these new creations are delicious, there’s something special about the classics. Ferguson Plarre’s donuts stay true to the traditional treat light and tasty treats from way back when.

Crisp and dusted with sugar on the outside, the first bite gives way to the pillowy texture of yeasted dough. At its core is a squirt of jam, hot and red like magma. So simple, but oh so delicious.

There will be 120 of these free doughys at each store across Victoria, but you’ll have to be quick as the offer is only available while stocks last. To redeem your ball of jam and sugar, all you need to do is make a purchase from the bakery, whether that be a coffee, sausage roll or Boston bun. It’s that simple.

Boasting more than 80 stores across Melbourne and Victoria, the free coffee offer makes up just one part of their birthday celebration giveaway, where they’re giving away free treats every Thursday in August.

Already they’ve given away free YoYo Biscuits and coffee the past two weeks, with one more to come including a mouth-watering free cupcake on August 26.

Please note, free items are available in participating stores only. Limited to one item per person with purchase while stocks last.
