The donut will only be available at participating locations on National Gingerbread House Day.
Pumpkin spice might be the flavor of the fall, but gingerbread is easily one of the most popular tastes of the holiday season. Krispy Kreme is showing some love for the spicy seasonal flavor favorite with its brand new spin on its classic glazed donut. Available for one day only, the doughnut chain is launching its Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut on December 12, marking the first ever time Krispy Kreme Doughnuts has transformed both the dough and glaze of its popular baked good.
The seasonally themed donut is infused not only with ginger but several other winter holiday aromas such as cinnamon and molasses. Made with perfectly spiced gingerbread dough, customers will experience hints of cinnamon and ginger as they bite into a donut covered in a warm gingerbread molasses glaze.
“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,” says Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “We take the holiday fun of gingerbread houses and celebrate it with the never-ending fun of Original Glazed doughnuts.”
If you want to get your hands on the sweet and spicy item, you’ll have to stop into a participating Krispy Kreme Donuts in either the U.S. or Canada only on December 12, National Gingerbread House Day. Once the holiday is gone, so are the donuts. While you’re there, you might as well snap a photo with limited time donut. Krispy Kreme is encouraging customers to share their (joyful) experience with the Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut by using the hashtag #Gingerbread and tagging @krispykreme.
If you happen to miss the event, don’t feel too down. Only a few days later on December 15 (also known as National Ugly Sweater Day) customers who stop into a participating Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop will get a free Original Glazed doughnut dozen when they buy any dozen.
