This St. Patrick’s Day, Krispy Kreme doughnuts are the real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for doughnut lovers.

Customers will discover that the shop’s new St. Patrick’s Day collection of doughnuts are “good as gold.” Plus, they will be excited for the return of the treasured green O’riginal Glazed Doughnut.

Available for a limited time, Krispy Kreme’s St. Patrick’s Day Collection includes four festive styles — that come in a custom St. Patrick’s Day-inspired box:

  • Golden Cookies & Kreme Doughnut ​– A golden cookie Kreme filled doughnut shell dipped in white icing and covered in golden cookie pieces and a gold sprinkle blend.
  • Hat O’ Gold Doughnut ​– A chocolate iced doughnut decorated with a plaid green icing pattern and topped with a leprechaun hat sugar piece.
  • Golden Sprinkle Doughnut – An Original Glazed doughnut dipped in green icing and topped with a gold St. Patrick’s Day sprinkle blend.
  • Rainbow Kreme Filled Doughnut ​– An unglazed shell filled with White Kreme topped with green icing and decorated with a rainbow sugar piece, vanilla buttercream and gold coin sprinkles.

Even luckier, Krispy Kreme is bringing back the fan-favorite O’riginal Glazed Doughnut – an Original Glazed doughnut gone green – for two days only, March 16 and 17.

Plus, customers who visit a participating location wearing green on March 16 and 17 (in-shop or drive-thru) will receive a FREE green O’riginal Glazed Doughnut. No purchase necessary. Limit one complimentary doughnut per person, per day.
