Like we needed yet ANOTHER reason to swing by our local Krispy Kreme. It was just announced that the masters of donut magic have created two new flavors to lure us in. This way, we can have our coffee with our donuts -- literally.
For a limited time only the donut giant will be offering newfangled flavor sensations as the Mocha Kreme Doughnut and the Caramel Coffee Kreme Doughnut. Seriously, they had me at mocha -- the caramel and coffee are just added bonuses.
So how do Krispy Kreme's new coffee donuts taste?
Pretty drool-worthy, if they're as described (I have yet to go out and taste them, but give me time). The Mocha Kreme is "filled with a tasty blend of chocolate and coffee flavors, topped with mocha icing, a milk chocolate swirl, and decorated with milk chocolate icing," according to the company. Delish!
Meanwhile the new Caramel Coffee variety is described as "a decadent glazed treat topped with smooth caramel and coffee flavored icing, a mocha drizzle, and dollop of coffee Kreme." Um, yes, please.
If they sound a whole lot like something that would be served in a mug at your local café, there's a good reason. These two flavors are part of Krispy Kreme's "#LattaLatte line," inspired by coffee shop favorites.
Now, I personally don’t indulge in donuts very often, but the appeal of "limited time only" urgency along with those flavors that coffee addicts like me love outside its liquid form may just make the five-mile journey to my local Krispy Kreme worth it.
The two new additions will be offered from now until March 30.
Will you be rushing out to get one, two, or a dozen -- or don't you eat donuts?
