During my younger days, my underfunded school district recruited students to raise funds by asking them to pester their relatives and parents’ co-workers to buy magazines, cookie dough, and wrapping paper to make up some of the difference.
However, there was one fundraiser that was far superior to all of the rest: the Krispy Kreme doughnut drive.
At the time, you have to drive an hour if you wanted to get your hands on the chain’s good, so people went absolutely crazy at the chance to bring the glazy, melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts into their lives.
In the past few years, artisanal doughnut shops have become all the rage but Krispy Kreme has seriously upped their game in order to stay competitive— like the time they showed us what innovation truly looks like by throwing a Chips Ahoy cookie on top of a creme-filled goodie.
They also channeled their inner Silicon Valley and disrupted things by teaming up with Reese’s to fill a treat with peanut butter to usher in the Easter season.
We are not worthy.
Now, Krispy Kreme is raising the stakes ahead of Halloween with a few new doughnuts inspired by the holiday— including a brand new Trick-or-Treat variety I cannot wait to get my hands on.
The main attraction features their classic glazed variety covered with a salted caramel drizzle and— most importantly— three classic Halloween candies that’ll transport you straight back to the days of roaming around your neighborhood with a pillowcase.
You can grab them all starting today, but if you’re looking to snag some free food, you can pop into a store on Halloween and get one for free as long as you’re rocking a costume.
