The next time you are drawn to the lure of Krispy Kreme's red "Hot Now" sign, instead of buying only a dozen hot glazed doughnuts, you might want to try out one of the doughnut chain's two new flavors. The North Carolina based chain has decided to collide the two wonderful worlds of coffee and doughnuts by introducing two coffee-flavored doughnuts. These two new flavors are available at participating locations in the United States and Canada.
Krispy Kreme offers more than a dozen different doughnut flavors on its menu, and now customers can purchase Mocha Kreme and Caramel Coffee Kreme doughnuts. According to Krispy Kreme's description of the Mocha Kreme doughnut, it is a "moist yeast doughnut filled with a tasty blend of chocolate and coffee flavors, topped with mocha icing, a milk chocolate swirl and decorated with milk chocolate icing." As tasty as that sounds, the Caramel Coffee Kreme's description might sound even more heavenly. This doughnut is described as being a "decadent glazed treat topped with smooth caramel and coffee flavored icing, a mocha drizzle and dollop of coffee Kreme."
Check out pictures of the two new doughnuts below.
The news of Krispy Kreme's two new flavors might sting a little for those still working on their New Year's resolutions, but if coffee and doughnuts are two of your favorite things, you might not want to hold off on trying out the new doughnuts for too long--these two flavors are available for a limited time only. The two flavors were added the display cases on Monday, and Krispy Kreme hasn't yet mentioned how long they plan to keep the doughnuts before yanking them. Since the doughnuts aren't tied to a holiday theme, like Krispy Kreme's recent Valentine doughnuts that hung around for a couple of weeks, maybe these will stick around for a while.
Judging from the number of 'likes' the announcement of the new flavors received on Krispy Kreme's Facebook page, it appears many fans are excited to try them out. If coffee isn't your thing, which doughnut flavor would you like to see added to Krispy Kreme's lineup? Add your comments below.
