The first flavor is the Mocha Kreme. It is described as a “moist yeast doughnut filled with a tasty blend of chocolate and coffee flavors”. Yum! The donut is topped with a mocha-flavored icing, milk chocolate swirl, and carefully decorated with milk chocolate icing.
The second choice, the Caramel Coffee Kreme, manages to combine caramel and coffee flavors in an icing, with a drizzling of mocha and dollop of “coffee-flavored Kreme”.
These donuts weren’t the only coffee-related items revealed to be coming to Krispy Kreme. The company recently announced that it is teaming up with Green Mountain to sell coffee. The single serve Keurig brewers are big business for coffee companies.
Is anyone really surprised that a donut company would try and muscle in? It seems predictable enough, but Krispy Kreme is taking a slow and cautious approach. For now, their “K-cups” will be one of two flavors: Smooth or Decaf.
It’s likely that as Krispy Kreme finds its footing, new flavors will be introduced over time.
Getting back to donuts, the new flavors will likely be a hit with anyone who loves their coffee and donuts. They can now have all the coffee flavor…and none of the soggy donut!

The only potential downside is that this seems to be a limited time offer. Which is why you are encouraged to get to your nearest Krispy Kreme to try one or both of the fantastic flavors before March 30th.
The flavors are available right now while supplies last, and if enough people compliment them perhaps (fingers crossed) these delicious donuts will stick around.
Or perhaps while Krispy Kreme will be inclined to introduce hot cocoa flavored donuts in the near future.
