CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It’s round. It’s glazed. And for the first time in the U.S., it’s filled.
Krispy Kreme has announced on Monday that they are now selling filled doughnuts.
Featuring Krispy Kreme’s classic Original Glazed doughnut, the new product is initially offered with a choice of two fillings: Classic Kreme and Chocolate Kreme.
“Krispy Kreme was at the launch of Apollo 11, serving fresh doughnuts to Americans witnessing liftoff of this monumental mission. As America prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, we want to give our fans a new taste experience that is out of this world. We choose to fill our Original Glazed® doughnuts, not because it is easy, but because it is hard (no disrespect intended, JFK). Actually… it’s not hard, it’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious,” said Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation.
Fans can experience the launch of the Original Filled Doughnut for free on June 22 (one free doughnut per guest) as Krispy Kreme’s reward to America for meeting the brand’s National Doughnut Day challenge of giving away 1 million free doughnuts.
