Krispy Kreme has four specialty doughnuts for Thanksgiving and they are not turkey flavored.
Krispy Kreme said it “is encouraging Americans to share ‘Gobbles of Gratitude’ with new doughnuts this Thanksgiving season as 80 percent of respondents in a national survey say celebrating Thanksgiving is more important than in previous years, and nearly half are planning to attend more Thanksgiving celebrations than they did before the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“We missed out on so much last year, including Thanksgiving celebrations. This Thanksgiving, people have a desire and need to be together more often and more so than any other Thanksgiving. So, we’re creating a way to share your gratitude with others in the most delicious way possible,” said Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme.
Customers can get the Thanksgiving collection of doughnuts packaged in a custom gratitude box that features a space to share “Gobbles of Gratitude” to someone special via a note on top.
Krispy Kreme’s Thanksgiving collection is available starting Monday, Nov. 8, for a limited time. The doughnuts are:
- Pecan Pie doughnut – An original glazed doughnut dipped in butter tart filling, then sprinkled with candied pecans and pie crust crumbles.
- Cranberry Orange doughnut – A doughnut filled with cranberry, dipped in cranberry orange icing and finished with an icing drizzle.
- Dutch Apple Pie doughnut – A doughnut filled with apple pie filling, dipped in caramel icing, topped in cinnamon and decorated with an icing lattice.
- Gobbler doughnut – A heart-shaped doughnut is dipped in chocolate icing, decorated with chocolate kreme, topped with Thanksgiving sprinkles and a turkey face fondant piece “so cute you will just gobble it up!”
