Krispy Kreme announces new 'Butterfinger' donuts

Krispy Kreme has announced its new Butterfinger flavor and we couldn't be more excited.

Unlike Oreo's recent collaboration with Supreme, this brand collaboration has really got us excited because who doesn't like Butterfinger and Krispy Kreme? The two together sounds like a match made in Heaven.

Feeling more savory than sweet? Check out this recipe for this giant fried chicken donut sandwich: 

Available in the US, the new collaboration was reported on Instagram by the CandyHunting account. It revealed that there will be two new offerings: the Butterfinger Original Filled Doughnut and the Butterfinger Fudge Cake Doughnut.

The post was captioned: "New Butterfinger donuts are out now at Krispy Kreme in the US!

"The Butterfinger Fudge Cake Doughnut has a chocolate donut, chocolate icing, peanut butter chocolate Kreme, and Butterfinger pieces.

"The Butterfinger Original Filled Doughnut is filled with peanut butter chocolate Kreme, dipped in Butterfinger icing, and is topped with Butterfinger pieces and a chocolate drizzle."

Now, if we were to speculate, it sounds like these donuts are going to be a delicious combination of sweet and salty flavors that are crunchy and chewy.

However, as is the case with so many brilliant tasty treats, they won't be around forever, per Delish, and they are available for a limited time only at select Krispy Kreme stores.

Per Krispy Kreme's website, this is the brand's first collaboration with Butterfinger.

It states: "Kreme meets crunch in Krispy Kreme’s first-ever partnership with Butterfinger! You can now experience an unforgettable combination of the light and airy Original Glazed doughnut combined with crunchy Butterfinger candy pieces."

Meanwhile, in other Krispy Kreme news, the donut brand has launched Ricky and Morty-themed donuts.

But perhaps most excitingly of all, a new (and relatively safe) online challenge has emerged. It's called the Krispy Kreme Challenge and involves eating 12 of the donuts during a five-mile run!

Personally, we will be spending our time enjoying the new Butterfinger donuts before it's too late.
