Last fall — just in time for trick-or-treaters — Reese’s released the Outrageous bar, which our staffers basically declared the best chocolate candy of all time. The near-perfect confection is built with a peanut butter and caramel center covered in milk chocolate and Reese’s Pieces. It can’t get better than that, right? Wrong.
For a limited time only, Krispy Kreme is offering its own version of the treat using some of the same ingredients in the form of a chocolate doughnut. The crazy confection features chocolate yeast dough dipped in Hershey’s fudge icing. It’s then topped with mini Reese’s Pieces and a drizzle of peanut butter and gooey salted caramel sauce. The brand-new treat will be offered at select Krispy Kreme outposts throughout the U.S.
Things are getting innovative across the pond, too. According to Sora News, Krispy Kreme Japan launched a limited-edition line of doughnuts called “Tasty Asian Sweets,” inspired by popular desserts from different parts of Asia. From now until early September, customers in the Land of the Rising Sun will find Hong Kong Almond Tofu, Thai Mango Cheesecake, Vietnam Chè, Taiwan Pineapple Cake, and Thai Spicy Green Curry doughnuts on the menu. A Taiwan Tapioca Milk Tea will also be offered.
Tasty Asian Sweets probably won’t make their way to America, but that’s OK. Krispy Kreme is always giving us the limited-edition desserts we need and desire. Most recently, we saw birthday-themed confetti doughnuts, and before that came chocolate-glazed, Chips Ahoy and Nutter Butter, Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg, and Hershey’s Gold. For more on the company that once tried to sell doughnuts through car windows and sunroofs at an intersection in California, here are 15 things you didn’t know about Krispy Kreme.
