The internet's favorite viral doughnut has finally made it stateside.
Frosé, the Cronut, the Sushirrito. People go crazy for an inventive food mash-up. So it’s not surprising that Krispy Kreme’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup doughnut achieved viral status last year, despite being only being sold in Australian stores. That is, only sold in Australia until now. That's right: Beginning August 4, the doughnut will be available in select Krispy Kreme stores.
The doughnut sounds like the peanut butter and chocolate lover’s dream: It’s filled with peanut butter sauce, dipped in chocolate icing and topped with peanut butter chips and vanilla cookie crumble.
This isn’t the first time the iconic brown-and-orange wrapped candy has appeared in doughnut form. In Fall 2015, Dunkin Donuts offered a the limited edition Reese’s Peanut Butter Square in its U.S. stores. The treat had real peanut butter filling and was topped with chocolate and orange icing.
