Krispy Kreme Launched Halloween Inspired Donuts

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

One of our all-time favorite donut joints, Krispy Kreme just blessed us with Halloween-inspired donuts. Right in time for Halloween, a witches’ spell has turned Krispy Kreme into “Krispy Skreme” for the rest of October, and we’ll skreme any day for these delicious donuts. They’ve even changed their logo for the occasion and included four brand new donuts, $1 dozens every Saturday, and we can also expect a free donut on Halloween. They will be offered for a limited time only, so be sure to get your hands on these sweet treats while you can! Krispy Kreme sure knows how to embrace the holiday season and we are totally here for it.

So what kind of new donuts can we expect to have? They will offer the Abra Cat Dabra, which is an Original Glazed donut that is taken up a notch and decorated like a cat. It’s dipped in chocolate and covered in black sanding sugar. Next is the Enchanted Cauldron donut, a Glazed Chocolate Cake donut that resembles a witch’s cauldron. It has black Kreme on the top and is decorated with sprinkled and pretzels. There will also be the Bewitched Broomstick donut, an unglazed donut that adorns an icing swirl topped with bright green buttercream and a pretzel made to look like a broomstick. The last donut is the Spooky Sprinkle, an Original Glaze donut that’s been dipped in orange icing and sprinkled with their ‘Halloween sprinkle blend.” We’re salivating over here.


With the new Halloween releases, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme, Dave Skena said in a recent press release, “We all deserve an incredibly great Halloween this year. So, we’re turning into Krispy Skreme for the month and scaring up some amazing Halloween doughnuts along with some spooky good deals. Help us have fun too by coming by on Halloween in costume and we’ll give you a free doughnut!” Be sure to get your hands on these treats before they run out and dress up in your best costumes on October 31 to receive a free donut with no purchase necessary!
