Krispy Kreme’s iconic glazed donuts have tasted more or less the same for the last 80 years -- with some recent and notable exceptions. The sugary dough ring purveyor has taken the unusual move to alter the recipe for occasions like St. Patrick’s Day, the total solar eclipse, and pumpkin spice season. Now, it’s introducing a new version just for the holidays this year.
On Tuesday, Krispy Kreme announced it’s rolling out a festive take on the original glazed recipe with its first-ever Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut. The limited-edition donut will be available at most of the chain’s locations across the United States and Canada just for one day only -- National Gingerbread House Day -- on Tuesday, December 12. Now, you can stack the donuts to build the gingerbread skyscraper of your dreams... if you can hold off on eating them all for that long, that is.
