While Krispy Kreme has signature menu items that customers can enjoy all year long, their biggest fans know that the doughnut chain also brings out seasonal treats that are only available for a few weeks at a time, and the holiday season is no exception.
Whether you’re already rocking out to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” in the car or you need a little push to get your caroling started, Krispy Kreme is ready to kick off the holiday season this Friday with its Nicest Holiday Collection.
Delish reports that the collection will introduce two new festive doughnuts, as well as bring back an old favorite, starting on November 27.
The Festive Tree Doughnut is filled with red velvet cake batter, dipped in cream cheese icing, and decorated with Christmas tree frosting, while the Present Doughnut looks like a wrapped gift and is filled with Sugar Cookie Kreme.
The Santa Belly Doughnut will also be making a return this year -- dipped in red icing and granulated sugar, the doughnut is filled with Chocolate Kreme.
You can get the holiday treats when you order a limited-edition “gift-wrapped” dozen box, but be warned that they’ll only be available until December 24.
The Gingerbread Glazed doughnut, another fan-favorite, will be available at Krispy Kreme locations starting on December 16.
The chain is also extending a "thank you" to busy delivery drivers by offering a free dozen original glazed doughnuts to them on Monday, November 30. According to the chain’s website, “Mail, Package and Parcel Delivery Drivers” are eligible to redeem the in-store promotion. “This includes those that work for one of the following companies: UPS, USPS, FedEx, Amazon or DHL. Delivery drivers must present their ID and/or be wearing a uniform to redeem at shop.”
Earlier this month, the chain went all-in on the caramel craze, introducing two new limited-time menu items, a Caramel Glazed Doughnut and a Caramel Crunch Doughnut. Caramel joined a long line of earlier glaze flavors at Krispy Kreme, including chocolate, lemon, blueberry, strawberry and coffee.
