America voted lemon as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts®’ next, all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor

America voted lemon as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts®’ next, all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor

 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., 2018-Jan-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — America dreamed, debated and, now … has decided. After casting nearly two million votes online over a week, America selected lemon as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts®’ next, all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor.

Krispy Kreme’s innovation team will craft and perfect the Lemon Glazed Doughnut flavor, which will be made available this spring for a full week at participating Krispy Kremeshops.

The #VoteForGlaze campaign was the first time Krispy Kreme let America decide an all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor for the brand’s iconic Original Glazed® Doughnut. Fans selected from four flavors – blueberry, caramel, lemon and maple – January 16 through 22 at www.voteforglaze.com.

Lemon was America’s top choice, garnering 36 percent of the vote. Caramel received 26 percent of the vote, blueberry received 20 percent followed by maple, which received 18 percent.

“Lemon won the vote, but we can’t glaze over the fact that the other three flavors all received a lot of support, even beyond the votes. Our fans’ passion for these flavors – and others – came through loud and clear on social media. So while the polls are closed, our minds are not,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts®.

Krispy Kreme will announce this spring the exact dates the all-new Lemon Glazed Doughnut will be available.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts kicks off fundraising campaign to provide summer camp experience to children with chronic medical conditions

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts kicks off fundraising campaign to provide summer camp experience to children with chronic medical conditions

 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., 2017-Apr-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Krispy Kreme Doughnuts today ( April 5, 2017 ) announced the beginning of the 9th annual Drive for 45 campaign. The campaign will raise money for Victory Junction, a non-profit organization that provides children with chronic medical conditions with a classic summer camp experience in a medically-safe environment. Guests can donate at any participating shops in the U.S. through May 19.

Victory Junction is located on 84 acres of land in Randleman, N.C. The camp serves children from across the country between the ages of six and 16.

“Victory Junction is changing lives for hundreds of children each summer,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “Everyone should be able to make friends and memories at summer camp, and we are grateful to be partners with an organization that gives this opportunity to so many.”

Kyle Petty led efforts to build Victory Junction in honor of his son Adam, who died in a racing accident in 2000. Adam’s racecar number was 45, and that’s why the Drive for 45 is 45 days long.

“Since 2009, Krispy Kreme has sent more than 1,300 kids to Victory Junction,” said Petty. “We are grateful for their passion for our mission and their continued generosity, which helps to provide normal childhood experiences to even more kids who wouldn’t be able to attend camp anywhere else due to their medical conditions.”

Krispy Kreme fans can also donate online at www.victoryjunction.com/krispykreme.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts introduces two new authentic coffee blends made from 100 percent Arabica beans

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts introduces two new authentic coffee blends made from 100 percent Arabica beans

 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., 2017-Feb-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — Krispy Kreme Doughnuts announced today ( February 1, 2017) an all-new, freshly brewed coffee designed to be the perfect complement to its Original Glazed doughnuts and other treats – a combination that’s deliciously inseparable.

Now available at Krispy Kreme shops nationwide, guests can choose from two authentic blends of fresh coffee: new Smooth for subtle, easy drinking and Rich for a more bold experience. Both are made from 100 percent Arabica beans.

“We have completely reinvented Krispy Kreme coffee from the bean to the cup, ensuring our customers’ beverage experience delivers the fresh quality and taste you always get from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “Our new Smooth coffee is the only coffee designed to be the perfect complement to Krispy Kreme’s freshly-made Original Glazed doughnuts and other treats. It’s a combination that’s deliciously inseparable, and we’re proud to say that our coffee is now doughnut-worthy.”

Matching a coffee with the unique taste of a Krispy Kreme doughnut is a complex feat, in part, because the coffee must have just the right balance of flavor profiles. After sourcing Arabica beans from Sumatra, Colombia, Guatemala and Brazil, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts spent months working with experts to create the perfect coffee blends for its doughnuts – offering light acidity to balance the sweetness and with nuttiness and citrus notes to complement the treats. Lightly roasted with a subtle blend of Central and South American beans, the new Smooth blend is crafted to produce a smooth, balanced body for easy drinking and a naturally sweet finish. As a bold alternative, the new Rich blend is an aromatic and flavorful medium-bodied blend of Central, African and Indo-Pacific beans, creating a lush, well-rounded flavor and satisfying finish.

Beginning February 6, Krispy Kreme customers who purchase any size of the new coffee will receive a free Original Glazed doughnut. For more information on the promotion, which runs through February 28, go to http://KrispyKreme.com/DeliciouslyInseparable.
