"Each year we always look forward to the classic flavors of fall"

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inspired by the savory and spicy flavors of fall, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts today announced a doughnut and beverage line featuring classic tastes such as pumpkin spice and salted caramel. The Pumpkin Spice Cake Doughnut, Salted Caramel Latte Doughnut and Pumpkin Spice Latte are now available in participating shops in the U.S. and Canada through Nov. 24.

The Pumpkin Spice Cake Doughnut is an old-fashioned doughnut with pumpkin spice and Krispy Kreme’s classic glaze.

The Salted Caramel Latte Doughnut is an espresso Kreme™ filled doughnut and topped with a salted caramel icing and salted sugar blend. An espresso icing drizzle tops off this perfect fall treat.

The Pumpkin Spice Latte features a pumpkin spice blend and is topped with whipped cream and pumpkin topping. This beverage can be enjoyed hot, iced or frozen.

“Each year we always look forward to the classic flavors of fall,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “Our fans crave these seasonally inspired treats, and the pairing of a Pumpkin Spice Latte and one of our doughnuts makes for the perfect comfort food as the weather starts to cool down.”

Krispy Kreme’s pumpkin flavored products have been appearing seasonally in shops for more than a decade and are frequently noted by our guests as one of the best ways to get a pumpkin fix throughout the season.

Fans wishing to get their Talk like a Pirate Day bounty early will get their chance, as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts announced two Pirate Doughnuts available today. The Pirate Doughnut and the Skull and Crossbones Doughnut will be available through Sept. 19.

The Pirate Doughnut is a Kreme™ filled doughnut dipped in white icing before being finished with a classic Pirate face. The Skull and Crossbones Doughnut is filled with chocolate Kreme dipped in chocolate icing and topped with a candy skull and crossbones made of white icing.

Share these treats with your family and friends using #KrispyKreme all season long.
