Lemon was the top choice with 36 percent of the nearly two million online votes. Now, Krispy Kreme has announced that the Lemon Glaze Doughnut will make its debut on Monday, April 23. It will be available until Sunday, April 29 at participating locations.
The new flavor was part of a several month process by Krispy Kreme’s culinary team to find the right balance of Krispy Kreme’s iconic sweet dough, fresh lemon, and bright citrus.
“The bar doesn’t get any higher than our Original Glazed Doughnut! Experimenting with the many flavor profiles lemon presents to create an all-new lemon glaze was a fun, but serious culinary challenge,” says Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “There has been so much anticipation and zest for the new Lemon Glaze Doughnut, we can’t wait to share the joy with our fans!”
