If you’re a cotton-headed-ninny-muggins who drives past Krispy Kreme even though the Hot light is illuminated, the chain wants to lure you in with its “Elf”-themed offerings. Everyone knows that elves love sugar, and the new holiday donuts (three variations of the chain’s Original Glazed Donut) deliver on that front. “Our new ‘Elf’-inspired donuts honor memorable moments from the movie in the most delicious way possible and embody its fun and festive spirit,” says Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme’s global chief brand officer.
Aside from the three new donut flavors, the chain will add several beverages to its menu. Buddy the Elf may be known for chugging a two-liter soda, but Krispy Kreme has opted to offer a sugar cookie latte, which comes hot, iced, or frozen, and Ghirardelli hot chocolate.
Last year, Krispy Kreme crafted its holiday menu around “Santa and Mrs. Claus’s recipe book.” It featured classic seasonal flavors like gingerbread and red velvet. However, those will not be returning this year. Krispy Kreme’s new lineup will be available at participating locations starting Friday, November 24.
