Calling all Krispy Kreme and caramel lovers!

Starting on Nov. 9 and lasting until Nov. 22, the famed doughnut chain will be bringing the two tasty treats together for two new menu offerings.

First, the Caramel Glazed Doughnut, is the classic Krispy Kreme treat simply covered in rich caramel glaze, while the second, the Salted Double Caramel Crunch Doughnut, is also dipped in caramel icing, but topped with salted crunch toppings as well.

This is the first time Krispy Kreme has experimented with caramel glaze. According to a press release, the new flavor "is the latest in a lineup of innovative glaze flavors Krispy Kreme has introduced in recent years, including chocolate, lemon, blueberry, strawberry and coffee."

Earlier this year, the company also launched mini doughnuts, which come in four varieties: Original Glazed, Chocolate Iced Glazed, Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles and Strawberry Iced with Sprinkles.

Krispy Kreme called the minis their biggest innovation of 2020, and encouraged people to have one (or a few) as a cheat day snack.
