Take a bite out of red, white, and blue perfection.

Doughnuts and holiday weekends are two things we'll never tire of. Especially if Krispy Kreme, the North Carolina-born delight we love oh-so-much, is involved.

Now, the doughnut chain is stepping up its game to celebrate Independence Day with the re-release of the Freedom Ring Doughnut at participating outposts in the United States and Canada. To make this holiday delight, the Original Glazed Doughnut "[is] decorated in the spirit of the American flag with a red, white and blue icing drizzle and sprinkles," as a press release describes the confectionery.

Ready for a snack? The Freedom Ring Doughnut, along with the company's Chocolate Iced Doughnut topped with red, white, and blue sprinkles is available through July 4th (the chain first started pedaling these treats on Monday, June 25th).

We can almost smell a fresh batch of doughnuts through our screens. This can only mean one thing: It's time to let freedom ring and take a doughnut break.

Celebrating at home? Toast the 4th of July with one of these patriotic cake ideas. Happy Independence Day!
