This is a Krispy Kreme party you won't want to miss.
Did you get the invite? Krispy Kreme – practitioners of the great invention that is the doughnut – is celebrating their 82nd birthday with a deliciously festive treat.
The Original Filled Birthday Batter Doughnut is like if you took one of their mouthwatering glazed doughnuts, coated it in strawberry icing, and stuffed it with sweet, sweet cake batter filling. In fact, that's exactly what it is. Topped with colorful party sprinkles, it's like having a piece of birthday cake on-the-go, and we're here for it!
Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme's Chief Marketing Officer, said in a press release that "Krispy Kreme fans love to celebrate our birthday. They really make it their party, which is good with us. We're continuing our birthday tradition of the $1 dozen deal, which is great. But this year for the first time, we are filling an Original Glazed doughnut with birthday cake batter ... and that's even better."
Hopefully, it's not the last time! Knowing their penchant for filled treats, like last month's Classic and Chocolate Kreme-stuffed varieties honoring the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, we'd love to see what other ideas they have up their sleeves!

Founded in 1937 by Vernon Rudolph, the doughnut chain made its name on light and fluffy glazed doughnuts made fresh in-house. They now operate over a thousand locations worldwide, from Canada to the United Arab Emirates.
The Original Filled Birthday Batter Doughnut will be offered for one week only, starting Monday, July 15, up until Sunday, July 21, at participating stores. Check their website to see if they're available near you.
But the party doesn't stop there! On Friday, July 19, swing by Krispy Kreme for their $1 Dozen Deal – buy any dozen doughnuts and receive a free dozen Original Glazed doughnuts. Thank you, Krispy Kreme – people everywhere will now be fully supplied with your delicious doughnuts. We can't think of a better birthday send-off than that!
