Calling all gingerbread fans, novelty donut fans and basically everyone who likes a little sweet holiday flair in their lives: Krispy Kreme is releasing gingerbread donuts for an extremely limited time and no, this is not a drill.
Get them while you can! The fried dough rings will make their grand entrance on Dec. 12 -- National Gingerbread House Day, as it happens -- at participating U.S. and Canada locations, the donut chain announced in a Business Wire press release.
Sadly, it seems that the donuts will only be around for that one day as of now, so you'll want to be prompt on this one.
The pastries are similar in style to Krispy Kreme's classic glazed offering, except these are made with cinnamony gingerbread dough and covered in a gingerbread molasses glaze. Sounds pretty tasty!
"Gingerbread is a classic holiday flavor, and now there's a delicious new way to enjoy it with the classic qualities of our Original Glazed doughnut," Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, said in the Business Wire release. "We take the holiday fun of gingerbread houses and celebrate it with the never-ending fun of Original Glazed doughnuts."

If a tryst with the gingerbread rings is not in the cards for you, the donut shop has a number of other seasonal offerings that should be around for a good while longer, including the Melted Snowman Doughnut, Santa Belly Doughnut and Toffee Mocha beverage, notes QSR. The best part? The Santa Belly one is filled with Hot Cocoa Kreme, which sounds absolutely marvelous, don't you think?
"Krispy Kreme's mission is to spread joy, and with a busy holiday season, sometimes the most joyful moments are when we slow down and share a treat with family and friends," Woodward told QSR.
