Krispy Kreme Launched Halloween Inspired Donuts
Serena Carsley-Mann - October 13, 2021


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

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!
