Is it a good time for a doughnut? Does the day of the week end in "y?" Then, yes. And we all know any time is a good time for a Krispy Kreme doughnut, especially if Reeses's are involved. Well, happily for us, we're pleased to report that participating Krispy Kreme shops across the U.S. are bringing back the last three years of Reese's doughnuts to their menus starting on Friday, July 24, for a limited-time only. After the trial run, one will be chosen to return to the company's menu indefinitely, with the selection being announced in August.

Krispy Kreme

Per a company press release, the three revived offerings include:

  • Classic Reese’s Doughnut: Described as "a shell doughnut filled with Reese’s Peanut Butter Kreme, dipped in Hershey’s chocolate icing," and "topped with mini peanut butter chips," this doughnut is finished off with a few tantalizing swirls of Reese’s chocolate and peanut butter sauce.
  • Reese’s Outrageous Doughnut: This chocolate yeast ring doughnut gets dipped in Hershey’s chocolate icing before its "topped with Mini Reese’s pieces and a drizzle of salted caramel and Reese’s peanut butter icing." Outrageous sounds about right.
  • Reese’s Original Filled Chocolate Lovers Doughnut: Another doughnut of the chocolate yeast ring variety, this version is "filled with Reese’s Peanut Butter Kreme, dipped in Hershey’s chocolate icing, and decorated with Reese’s peanut butter icing."

To help the North Carolina-based doughnut empire determine which of the three Reese's doughnuts should earn a permanent spot on the brand's menu, fans can post about which Reese’s doughnut is their favorite by sharing their "greatest, most creative doughnut reviews on social media." To participate in this "Greataste Reese's Doughnut of All Time" debate, use #TheGreataste and #KrispyKreme and tag @krispykreme in your posts.

If we had a magic 8-ball in our hands we're pretty sure the triangle would say "peanut butter and chocolate are in your very near future." We think she shall heed that call.
