ST. PATRICK'S DAY

Tomorrow, everyone will pretending to be Irish for a day and what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than by dyeing food an unnatural green color? For 2017, Krispy Kreme has announced that the doughnut shop will be offering “O’riginal Glazed” doughnuts for one day only. While the doughnuts taste just like the shop’s “Original Glazed” doughnut, they look decidedly different made with green dough and a shiny green glaze reports Al.com. Whether or not that sounds appealing to you, kids are bound to love it.

“St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect occasion to change the color of the Original Glazed, and our customers love sharing them with family and friends,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “What’s even rarer – like finding a four-leaf clover – is altering the name of such an iconic product. We’ve never done it. But in this instance, it’s fun and joyful, just like the holiday.”
