Krispy Kreme unveils festive doughnuts ahead of 4th of July

In honor of the Fourth of July, Krispy Kreme is celebrating with new holiday-themed doughnuts. 

According to the doughnut giant, beginning June 21, customers can purchase the "Stars and Stripes Dozen," which features three all-new doughnuts. The treats can be purchased individually or by the dozen in a custom, Fourth of July-themed box.

The new doughnut flavors featured are: 

  • Red Velvet Sparkler Doughnut – A red velvet cake doughnut topped with cream cheese icing and a stars and pearls sprinkle blend.

  • NEW Freedom Flag Doughnut – an original glazed doughnut dipped in red icing and decorated like an American flag with a blue and white sprinkle blend, and white icing stripes.
  • All-American Apple Pie Doughnut – an unglazed shell filled with apple cinnamon filling, dipped in caramel icing and a graham cracker crumb, finished with a drizzle of white icing.

"Family, friends, food, fireworks … the Fourth of July is so much fun, and our new Stars and Stripes doughnuts will let sweetness ring at any gathering – from backyard barbeques to lined sidewalks at neighborhood and community parades across the land," said Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme’s global chief brand officer.
