Krispy Kreme always cooks up (or shall we say bakes up) something special for the holidays, and this Valentine's Day is no different. The donut chain is now offering four Valentine’s-themed donuts for you to treat a loved one or yourself to, available through February 14.
The adorable new “Dough-Notes” collection even features a limited-edition Valentine’s Day donut box—not only is it covered in Valentine’s designs, but it also features a space to write a personal note for the lucky recipient.
The new donuts are on theme and shaped in a heart, of course, which also means they come with a delicious filling rather than a hole. Here are the special flavors:
“People aren’t just craving delicious doughnuts, they crave connection, and our new collection satisfies both needs,” says Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme, in the chain’s official news announcement.
Create your own filling flavors and try out a new date night idea by making filled donuts yourself. It’s not as difficult as you might assume—you don't even need a deep fryer. (Simply heat 2 inches of oil in a deep saucepan to 365 degrees F to fry them.)
