July 4th is coming in a few days, which means it’s time to plan your backyard barbecue menu. This year, you don’t have to wait until dinner to start your Independence Day celebrations, as Krispy Kreme kicks off the festivities with themed breakfasts.
Until Sunday, July 4, Krispy Kreme’s menu will feature four new patriotic donuts: Freedom Ring Donut, White Iced Patriotic Sprinkles Donut, Strawberry Shortcake Donut, and Eagle Donut. The four donuts, two of which are frozen and two filled, are decorated with different patriotic themes.
First off, the Freedom Ring donut and the White Iced Patriotic Sprinkles donut are both frosted. The Freedom Ring donut is decorated with stripes of icing and glitter to resemble a flag. The Patriotic Sprinkles donut is dipped in white frosting and topped with colorful sprinkles.
Filled donuts include the Strawberry Charlotte, which is filled with Strawberry Kreme, dipped in red frosting, sprinkled with golden stars, and topped with a dollop of Kreme and shortbread crumbles. The Patriotic Eagle Donut is filled with Cookies & Kreme topping, dipped in blue frosting, decorated with red and white stripes, and topped with a lump of Patriotic Eagle sugar.
If you’re having overnight guests for the holidays, or just feeding a crowd, you can pick up a Patriotic Dozen, which consists of three each of the Freedom Rings, Patriotic Eagles, Strawberry Shortcakes, and Rings. patriotic sprinkled. Krispy Kreme also has a special box of 20 mini 4th of July flag donuts if you want smaller treats.
Until July 4th, you can also get a dozen free original glazed donuts with the purchase of a dozen donuts – either the new July 4th donuts or just the ones you prefer.
