Chocolaty is basically my favorite adjective. Anything that's chocolaty can't be bad, unless we're talking about chocolate-covered ants or something. Fortunately, we're talking about the sweet pairing of donuts and Ghirardelli chocolate; does it get any better?
Brand Eating reports that Krispy Kreme has come out with two new donut flavors inspired by Ghirardelli chocolate squares. The two flavors will be mint chocolate and sea salt caramel. Yum!
The mint chocolate flavor is a donut filled with white mint Kreme and then iced with chocolate. To top it off, the donut is finished with green icing, mini chocolate chips (of the Ghirardelli variety, of course) and a dusting of powdered sugar. The sea salt caramel-flavored donut features salted caramel filling, chocolate icing, chocolate and caramel drizzles, and then amber sugar, salt and mini chocolate chips again. If that seems like a lot happening at once, that probably means the flavor is perfect. It sounds pretty perfect to me, at least.
If you're a Ghirardelli fan, I'd suggest giving these donuts a taste-test. See if their tastes resemble the Ghirardelli squares that inspired them. Any excuse is a good one to indulge in chocolate, and they were made with the same ingredients with which the famously delicious chocolates were made.
Then again, maybe you're more of a Krispy Kreme fan, in which case you were probably going to try these anyway. According to the Krispy Kreme website, you can join the donut mogul's app community for a fun prize of some sort. Maybe you can score a taste of these delectable new flavors for free? Or maybe one of them, at least?
As with all good things, the donuts are only available for a limited time. However, they're featured at locations in the U.S. and Canada, so you could be lucky enough to snatch some up before they're gone. Give them a try and leave some reviews so we know what to expect!
