Krispy Kreme Serves Gold With New Hershey’s Gold Doughnut

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That bit’s been embedded into our minds since adolescence. It stands to reason that you’d want to start your morning off with a golden choice, right? A golden doughnut perhaps?

Krispy Kreme just announced the addition of a new Hershey’s Gold Doughnut. Don’t worry though, your teeth won’t shatter when you bite into it.

The new doughnut is actually made from Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed Doughnut. It’s then topped with pieces of Hershey’s Gold Bar and a drizzle of salted caramel icing.

Hershey’s new Gold Bar, which in 117 years has only been the brand’s fourth flavor, features a caramelized creme base that includes salty peanuts and pretzel bites.

Sure, it’s not a solid gold doughnut, but who wants to eat that? We’re more than happy to take a mouthful of this sweet and salty new breakfast pastry.

The new Hershey’s Gold Doughnut will be available at participating Krispy Kreme locations beginning Feb. 22 for a limited time. Anyone with nut allergies may want to avoid it though.
