Frosé, the Cronut, the Sushirrito. People go crazy for an inventive food mash-up. So it’s not surprising that Krispy Kreme’s new Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup doughnut achieved viral status this week.

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. Just last fall, 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.
