As any doughnut lover knows, happiness is chocolate-iced, custard-filled, or apple frittered deliciousness. For Happiness: St Patrick's Day Edition, the wizards at Krispy Kreme are bringing back the playfully named "O’riginal Glazed Doughnut" for customers to enjoy Friday and Saturday, March 16th and 17th.

The limited-edition doughnuts are nearly identical to the Original Glazed doughnut, but made with green dough. “Krispy Kreme O’riginal Glazed Doughnuts are fun to eat all on their own, so we thought there is no better way to dial up the fun than going green for St. Patrick’s Day. We know many people also celebrate the holiday Friday, so we’re making the O’riginal Glazed Doughnuts available that day, too,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in a company press release.

In addition to the glazed doughnuts, Krispy Kreme has jazzed up its Chocolate Iced Glazed with Sprinkles, with green sprinkles replacing its regular multi-colored medley, to get into the holiday spirit.

Beyond the St.Patty's day fun, the Winston-Salem doughnut empire most recently won over our taste buds with a special Hershey's Gold doughnut in honor of the Olympics. We don't know about you, but we're starting to think gold-and-green looks very, very good together.
