Krispy Kreme has stepped into the New Year with the introduction of its latest Mini Doughnuts starting today, January 6. Krispy Kreme has put together a bite-sized collection of four of its most well-known doughnuts. They are the Original Glazed, Chocolate Iced Glazed, Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles, and Strawberry Iced with Sprinkles. The Mini Doughnuts have been permanently added to the menu.
According to the company, the purpose of these small desserts is to help customers who have made New Years’ Resolutions make healthier choices in 2020. For customers who are health conscious, this is a perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without the loads of calories in a whole doughnut. The Original Glazed mini doughnut has 90 calories, the Chocolate Iced Glazed contains 120 calories, and the Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles and Strawberry Iced with Sprinkles have 130 calories.
The doughnut company is also presenting to its patrons a promotion where the entire month of January will be referred to as “Mini Mondays.” Furthermore, customers who stop by within the hours of 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. will receive a free miniature doughnut. Just be sure to check that this “mini happy hour” by Krispy Kreme is available in your location.
Per a news release, Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme’s Chief Marketing Officer released a statement saying, “Sometimes a mini-indulgence, or cheat, is all you need to help you stick with it, so we miniaturized our most popular doughnuts.” Cheers to the New Year and having a “cheat” to help us all get through.
