Yum Alert.

Just when we were (almost) over the news that Krispy Kreme has introduced the Original Filled Doughnut to their menu, they wow us with the arrival of the Let Freedom Ring collection to celebrate the Fourth of July.

The trio of doughnuts debuted yesterday, June 24th, and will be available for a limited time at participating shops across the U.S., per a company press release. Those who wish to enjoy their doughnuts with a patriotic glaze can choose from the Freedom Ring Doughnut (red, white, and blue icing with sprinkles in the same colors), the Sprinkled Ring Doughnut (white icing with red, white, and blue sprinkles), and the Firework Ring Doughnut (a new doughnut with blue icing and red-and-white stripes).

If you're a Krispy Kreme Rewards member, you'll also be eligible for a free dozen of Original Glazed doughnuts when you purchase any dozen doughnuts on July 4th.

"Krispy Kreme doughnuts are a classic American treat and we just upped the America part. If you bring these red, white and blue doughnuts to a celebration, you can expect to be greeted with smiles," said Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation, in the same media release.

Well, guess we can scratch our overly ambitious holiday baking plans.
