New Krispy Kreme Donuts Are Filled And Sprinkled With Butterfinger Candy

Krispy Kreme has been making waves over the last few years with their collaborations, a recent one being their Rick and Morty menu, but the newest launch may just be the Kreme’s sweetest yet.

The doughnut chain just announced that they’ll be creating two new items inspired by the ever-popular Butterfingers chocolate and peanut butter bar. Krispy Kreme’s new items include the new Butterfinger Original Filled Doughnut and the Butterfinger Fudge Cake Doughnut.

Fans of the Original Glaze will appreciate Butterfinger Original Filled Doughnut which takes their staple breakfast cake and fills it with a peanut butter chocolate creme and dunks it into Butterfinger icing. It’s then topped with chunks of Butterfinger chocolate and then finished with a chocolate drizzle.

For a richer choice, the Butterfinger Fudge Cake Doughnut is pretty much a chocolate cake that’s topped with more chocolate, a peanut butter creme, and little bits of Butterfinger to round out the aesthetic.

“It’s a flavor overload,” said Foodbeast resident encyclopedia and Grecian hunk Constantine Spyrou upon trying the doughnuts.

Krispy Kreme’s newest additions will be available from now through March 13.

This Is How Butterfingers Are Made [WATCH]

Crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery. That grammatical mess introduced the world to the beauty of the Butterfinger candy bar.

Unwrapped, a series on the Food Network, gives us a look at how the chocolate-covered peanut butter snack is made. A film crew popped into the Nestle factory in Franklin Park, IL, to get a behind-the-scenes look at the candy-making process.

Viewers even find out that the name “Butterfinger” comes from a public contest where consumers got to choose what the candy bar would be called.

From a vat of chocolate to individually wrapped bars, we get to see the entire lifespan of a Butterfingers candy. Check out the video while we go back and watch some of the old Simpsons Butterfingers commercials.

Ah, the memories.
