It’s that time of year where everyone is seeing green. And like clockwork Krispy Kreme getting in on the action.

The doughnut chain announced last week the release of four new “gold-themed” doughnuts and the return of its green O’riginal Glazed Doughnut, with a chance to get one for free.

Now available at participating U.S. locations – the Spokane Valley location is one of them – the St. Patrick’s Day 2023 lineup includes a Golden Cookies & Kreme Doughnut, described as a “golden cookie Kreme-filled doughnut shell dipped in white icing and covered in golden cookie pieces and a gold sprinkle blend.”

The Hat O’ Gold Doughnut is a chocolate-iced doughnut with a plaid green icing pattern and topped with a sugar leprechaun hat.

Krispy Kreme’s new Golden Sprinkle Doughnut is an Original Glazed dipped in green icing and topped with a gold St. Paddy’s sprinkle blend.

Finally, the Rainbow Kreme-Filled Doughnut is an unglazed shell filled with the company’s signature White Kreme. It’s then dipped in green icing and topped with an edible rainbow decoration, vanilla buttercream, and gold coin sprinkles.

And there’s a lucky strike: Customers wearing green to a location on March 16 or March 17 will also get one free O’riginal Glazed Doughnut (which is green) – with no purchase necessary.

The offer is valid for both in-store or drive-thru customers.

The Charlotte, North Carolina-headquartered company said that its new lineup is also being delivered fresh to select grocery stores near Krispy Kreme shops as a special holiday 6‑pack, including the returning Chocolate Iced with St. Patrick’s Sprinkles Doughnut.
