America Picked It, We Glazed It, and Now It’s Here: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Debuts New Lemon Glaze Doughnut, Available for One Week Only, April 23-29

"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!"

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ Lemon Glaze Doughnut – selected by fans as an all-new, all-delicious glaze flavor – will make its debut Monday, April 23 and be available for one week only through Sunday, April 29 at participating Krispy Kreme shops across the United States and Canada.

In January, America dreamed, debated and decided on lemon over three others as the all-new Glaze Doughnut flavor for the brand’s iconic Original Glazed® Doughnut through the #VoteForGlaze campaign, which attracted nearly two million votes.

Krispy Kreme’s culinary innovation team spent months perfecting the new lemon glaze, which balances the freshness of real lemon, the brightness of citrus and the sweetness of Krispy Kreme’s iconic Original Glazed Doughnut.

“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,” said 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!”

Please visit to find a participating shop near you. Be sure to show your friends how you’re tasting and enjoying the all-new Lemon Glaze Doughnut by using #LemonGlaze and tagging @krispykreme on social.
