Much like hot cocoa, peppermint, and eggnog, gingerbread is reserved for the winter months. This year you can double-fist the spicy-sweet taste of gingerbread thanks to the return of the Krispy Kreme Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut.
Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 19, the seasonal Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut will be available at Krispy Kreme locations nationwide. Per Krispy Kreme, the Gingerbread Glazed is a variation on the original, but swaps the traditional yeast dough for gingerbread dough, and is covered in a warm gingerbread molasses glaze. The spicy-sweet notes in gingerbread are typically a result of its unique and heavy-handed incorporation of spices. The molasses provides a richer, thicker finishing touch. It could be argued the Gingerbread Glazed doughnut is reserved for a more sophisticated palate.
