Krispy Kreme gingerbread glazed doughnuts are here, but only for a limited time

Gingerbread, whether in cookie, cake or coffee form, is the sweet and spicy treat of the holiday season! 

To get in on the festive flavor, Krispy Kreme is bringing back their gingerbread glazed doughnut, but only for a limited time. The holiday-inspired sweet features a spiced gingerbread doughnut made with cinnamon and ginger, and is coated in a gingerbread molasses glaze. You can get one now through Monday, Dec. 24.

Krispy Kreme debuted the new doughnut last year for National Gingerbread Day, marking the first time that the chain had changed up both the dough and the glaze to create a new menu item.  According to Brand Eating who got a taste, the gingerbread doughnut doesn't have as strong of a spiced flavor as you might expect, but they "still make for a very tasty spiced version of their signature doughnuts."

If gingerbread isn't your thing, Krispy Kreme is also serving up several other holiday-themed doughnuts like a Santa's Belly (a chocolate Kreme-filled doughnut dipped in red icing) or an Ugly Sweater (an original doughnut dipped in green icing and decorated with sprinkles to look like a sweater).

So, this year, try the gingerbread doughnut (and a few others, just to be safe). But, go quick before they're gone!
