Gingerbread Glazed Doughnuts Are Back at Krispy Kreme — And They Just Got a Serious Upgrade

A late-breaking Christmas miracle.

'Tis the season for excessive amounts of holiday baking, especially in a year where everyone learned to bake and there isn't really a whole lot to do outside of our homes. While there will be plenty of gingerbread to go around this time of year, maybe you just want a little bit more of the good stuff. Maybe — gasp — your gingerbread cookies got crushed in the mail because your mom didn't package them with popcorn.

Whether you need a new outlet for your gingerbread addiction or you're just nostalgic for the spicy taste of the holidays, it's time to point your proverbial sleigh towards the nearest Krispy Kreme. Why? Because they've found not one but two ways to spread holiday cheer via the return of the Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut.

First and foremost, there's your standard-issue Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut, a sort of holiday riff on Krispy Kreme's signature Original Glazed Doughnut. Its dough incorporates the aforementioned gingerbread alongside crucial hints of cinnamon, all of it smothered in a warm gingerbread molasses glaze.

If that's not enough to make you feel jolly, then you might need to opt for the Gingerbread Glazed Original Filled Cheesecake Doughnut. Though its name itself is a mouthful, the concept at work is rather simple: Krispy Kreme takes the Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut and fills it with a decadent cheesecake Kreme. The idea of more or less mashing up a doughnut with gingerbread and cheesecake? That's holiday eating excess carried to its logical, delicious conclusion.

Though your advent calendars are more than half-empty by now, there's still time to get a hold of these Krispy Kreme Gingerbread creations. You'll find both doughnuts available through December 24, taking their place in the "Nicest Holiday Collection" alongside the existing Festive Tree, Present, and Santa Belly doughnuts.

So if something about anthropomorphized gingerbread doesn't suit you, go with Krispy Kreme's more circular option instead. If there's room for you on the nice list, then there's room for these two Christmas miracles in your stomach.
