Krispy Kreme and Dolly Parton have unveiled the “Dolly Southern Sweets Doughnut Collection,” comprising four new doughnuts.

For a limited time at participating Krispy Kreme shops, fans can enjoy the collection in a limited-edition custom Dolly Parton dozens box. The doughnuts include:

  • Dolly Dazzler Doughnut – Original glazed Doughnut dipped in strawberry icing, with gold, pink and white glitter sprinkles and a signature chocolate Dolly butterfly piece

  • Peachy Keen Cobbler Doughnut – Unglazed doughnut filled with real peach filling, dipped in brown sugar icing and crunchy cobbler topping

  • Banana Puddin’ Pie – Unglazed doughnut filled with banana pudding made with wafers and banana pudding Kreme, dipped in yellow icing with white icing swirls and a wafer cookie

  • Chocolate Crème Pie – Original glazed doughnut topped with a swirl of chocolate brownie cream and vanilla whipped topping, sprinkled with chocolate cookie crumble

“Having some of my very favorite southern flavors in one, unique doughnut collection from Krispy Kreme is so special to me,” says Parton. “These doughnuts remind me of home. So, I’m excited for folks to share them with their own family and friends.”

To help celebrate the introduction of the collection, Krispy Kreme is inviting everyone to get “Dolly’d Up” and visit shops on May 18. Anyone Dolly’d Up – from being totally Dolly decked out to wearing a Dolly Parton wig or their favorite Dolly merch – will receive a free Original Glazed Doughnut. Fans not Dolly’d Up can receive a free Original Glazed Doughnut by singing a favorite Dolly song.

“Krispy Kreme and Dolly Parton have a special thing in common – we both love to share joy,” says Dave Skena, global chief brand officer, Krispy Kreme. “It was a joy – and an honor – to collaborate with Dolly to create her signature doughnut collection. These doughnuts are going to dazzle and delight fans just like Dolly herself.”
