Krispy Kreme’s Classic Glaze Now Stuffed With Cream Filling

A freshly made Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut is one of life’s greatest guilty pleasures, and the doughnut shop is daring to mix things up with its “Original Filled” doughnuts.

The classic ring-shaped glazed doughnut is now stuffed with a Chocolate Kreme and Classic Kreme that you would normally find in their classic filled doughnuts.

For whatever reason, Krispy Kreme is tying their new doughnut to the historic Apollo 11 moon landing. There doesn’t seem to be any real connection between Krispy Kreme and the moon landing, but that didn’t stop them from running an odd commercial with an astronaut eating a doughnut in space.

Besides the weird branding, you’ll be happy to know that the Original Filled will be a permanent fixture, and isn’t a just a limited offering.

If you want to save a little dough, Krispy Kreme will be giving out these new offerings for free Saturday, June 22. No purchase is necessary for this promotion, but there is a limit of one per customer, so get ready to throw on your disguises if you want to cop more than one.

We tried them here at the office, and they’re as good as we expected. It’s really hard to hate a Krispy Kreme doughnut, and these are a welcome addition to the lineup.

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is channeling some of Willy Wonka’s energy to celebrate the opening of their new Santa Monica, CA location by awarding a select few a golden-filled Moon Pie Doughnut. For those lucky ones that bite into their doughnut to reveal its golden deliciousness, they become winners of a year’s worth of free doughnuts from Astro.

The Golden Doughnut will be filled with edible gold filling and mixed in every hour with free Moon Pie Doughnuts that are being given out during the Santa Monica location’s opening day on March 28, 2019. So if you’re in it for the proverbial golden ticket, make your way on over there for a chance to make Homer Simpson very jealous of you.

Dunkin’ Donuts to Give Away Free Donuts Today, Society Rejoices

For donut lovers, June 2nd is the holiday to end all holidays: National Doughnut Day. Plenty of shops and chains celebrate the holiday with special treats and offers, but no one does it quite like the pros. And by “pros,” we obviously mean the good people at Dunkin’ Donuts.

You only have to look at the company name to know that this is their day. And they mean business.

In the tradition of DD (this can mean Dunkin’ Donuts or Doughnut Day, up to you), the company is heralding the holiday by offering guests a free classic donut of their choice with the purchase of any beverage. The offer is good all day on June 2nd in-store and through On-the-Go Mobile Ordering at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide.

Oh no, that means you have to buy a coffee to get a free donut! (Kidding, what crazy person would be upset about that?) In fact, go ahead and buy yourself a Coolatta instead — it’s National Doughnut Day, so treat yo’ self.

But that’s not all folks. Dunkin’ Donuts is also celebrating National Doughnut Day with two new donut varieties featuring fun and colorful new sprinkle toppings.

The Vanilla Cake Batter Donut features vanilla-flavored cake batter filling, frosted with chocolate icing and topped with confetti sprinkles, while the Dunkin’ Donuts Sprinkles Donut is frosted with white icing and topped with pink and orange sprinkles shaped like the brand’s iconic “DD” logo. Both are available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ Donuts, and there’s no better time to try them than June 2nd!

New donuts that you can also get for free? What a time to be alive.
