Krispy Kreme Is Celebrating Its Birthday With Cake Batter-Filled Donuts

Krispy Kreme's birthday is next week and that means it's time to party!

Or, at least, it's an excuse for donuts — assuming you're the type of person that ever needs an excuse.

Lots of brands celebrate their birthdays, but Krispy Kreme has one of my favorite ways to do it: cheap donuts.

At participating locations on July 19, if you buy a dozen donuts you can get a whole second dozen of the Original Glazed for just $1. Who can say no to that?

I mean, it's a lot of donuts, but Krispy Kreme's original donuts are mostly air anyway.

At least, compared to the cakey donuts some other chains have. Cake donuts have their place, but an airy, fried donut really is where it's at.

That airiness also means that the donuts are just begging to be filled.

Usually, filled donuts lack the classic donut shape. Filled Krispy Kremes have perfected it by retaining the donut's hole.

Over the years, they've released many different filling flavors.

So of course they had to do a special version just for their birthday!

These Instagram-worthy treats start as an Original Glazed, but are then dipped in strawberry glaze and there are sprinkles. No birthday is complete without sprinkles.

But, of course, I'm burying the lede: They're stuffed with cake batter!

They certainly don't seem to skimp on the filling, either!

Sadly, these beauties are only going to be available the week of July 15-21, so if you want one, you'll need to act quickly!
