This is the first time that the glazed donut is being filled in the United States. We admit that we were super jealous when the Dominican Republic got a Nutella-filled donut last year, and the United Kingdom got them this year. But we’re over it now, because we now have not one, but two types of filling.
You have your choice of Krispy Kreme’s Original Filled Doughnut with Classic Kreme or Chocolate Kreme. We’re not exactly sure what the “Classic Kreme” means, but we trust the donut makers and bet they’re delicious. You’ll be able to spot the filled donuts by the Kreme drizzles on part of the pastry.
The new offerings come in time for the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing on July 20, 1969. Believe it or not, Krispy Kreme was on site that pivotal day.
“Krispy Kreme was at the launch of Apollo 11, serving fresh doughnuts to Americans witnessing liftoff of this monumental mission,” Dave Skena, chief marketing officer for Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation, said in a press release. “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.”
The Original Filled Doughnuts hit shops on June 17, but you’ll want to mark your calendar for June 22. That’s when you can get one for free and try it for yourself. Both treats are permanently available in the U.S., so you have plenty of time to treat yourself.
