Mark your calendars, this is a one-day-only event that you do not want to miss this holiday season! On Tuesday, December 12, participating Krispy Kreme stores will be offering a first-time, one-day-only seasonal take on the iconic original glazed donut. What else happens on December 12? It's National Gingerbread House Day, so it won't take long to guess what the special flavor of the holiday doughnut is!
The special gingerbread glazed doughnut will feature a spiced gingerbread dough, infused with ginger and peppered with hints of cinnamon. The glaze will be something totally special, too, featuring gingerbread molasses flavors.
Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, commented on the Krispy Kreme holiday offering in a statement.
"Gingerbread is a classic holiday flavor, and now there's a delicious new way to enjoy it with the classic qualities of our Original Glazed doughnut. We take the holiday fun of gingerbread houses and celebrate it with the never-ending fun of Original Glazed doughnuts."
Pumpkin may be the spice of the season, and Krispy Kreme brought back pumpkin spice flavors this fall. But, as we move past Thanksgiving, I think gingerbread flavors come to the forefront of holiday donuts than the PSL-inspired everything. Once we turn that corner and begin the countdown to Christmas, who needs pumpkins anymore?
The weather has turned chilly and we're all looking for ways to hunker down and build gingerbreads near the fire. Why not turn to this spicy December holiday favorite flavor? It's not their only holiday flavor, either. The Santa Belly doughnuts are filled with a tasty chocolate cream with red and chocolate icing to mimic Santa's belt line.
The Melted Snowman doughnut is filled with white icing and it's dipped in it, too. The snowman himself is made of candy and how yummy!
Krispy Kreme is encouraging customers to share their new holiday experience by snapping a pic and sharing it on social media using the hashtag #Gingerbread and tagging @krispykreme, so head over to your local Krispy Kreme!
