And yes, the all-green O'riginal Glazed Doughnut is back, too.

This St. Patrick's Day, don't go chasing pots of gold at the end of rainbows. Chase them instead to your nearest Krispy Kreme.

Just in time for St. Paddy's Day green hysteria, Krispy Kreme announced their all-new Luck O' the Doughnuts Collection. The green-and-gold confection collection includes four doughnuts — Gold Coin Doughnut, Lucky Sprinkles Doughnut, Lucky Unicorn Doughnut, and Leprechaun Plaid Doughnut.

So what do gold coins, lucky sprinkles, unicorns, and plaid leprechauns taste like? Good question. Krispy Kreme explains the flavors this way:

  • Lucky Gold Coin Doughnut — An Original Glazed doughnut is dipped in white icing, decorated with a green icing swirl, and sprinkled with lucky gold coins.   ​
  • Lucky Sprinkles Doughnut — An Original Glazed doughnut is dipped in green icing and topped with a festive shamrock sprinkle blend. ​
  • Lucky Unicorn Doughnut — An Original Glazed doughnut is filled with their signature Kreme filling, dipped in white icing, and hand decorated to resemble a magical unicorn.  ​
  • Lucky Leprechaun Doughnut — This doughnut is filled with Cookies and Kreme, dipped in green icing, decorated with plaid icing stripes, and topped with a Leprechaun Hat sugar piece.

Should you be waiting (and reading this far) to find out if the doughnut chain will be bringing back their all-green doughy rounds for the 2021 holiday, your wait has ended. Indeed, the beloved emerald green O'riginal Glazed Doughnut, which is the brand's iconic doughnut made green with what one can assume is enough food coloring to turn any river in America green, will be back in stores this year.

The O'riginal Glazed Doughnuts are available by the dozen March 16 and 17; the full Luck O' the Doughnuts Collection is available beginning today, March 11.

However, if your sweet tooth is a wee bit smaller, you can get a single sweet by doing what you do on St. Paddy's Day — wearing green! Guests who visit Krispy Kreme shops wearing green (in-shop, pick-up, or drive-thru) can receive one free O'riginal Glazed Doughnut. No purchase is necessary. The luck of the Irish is really with us this St. Paddy's Day — or at least with our sweet tooth.
