Krispy Kreme has been making doughnuts since 1937, but the chain’s Reese’s Outrageous Doughnut is truly in a league of its own.
The newest sugar-coated pastry, which made its debut on Monday, August 6, is inspired by Reese’s Outrageous candy – the chocolate bar filled with Reese’s Pieces. That’s why this latest confection features a first-ever chocolatey Krispy Kreme yeast dough dipped in Hershey’s chocolate fudge icing, topped with mini Reese’s Pieces and drizzled with Reese’s peanut butter and a salted caramel sauce.
The super-sweet treat, which is now available at participating U.S. Krispy Kreme shops for a limited time, is a follow-up to the Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut that was released about a year ago.
“This is hands down the most outrageous doughnut experience we’ve created!” Krispy Kreme Doughnuts CEO Mike Tattersfield said in a statement. “The Reese’s Outrageous Doughnut strikes a perfect balance of taste and texture sensations with an airy chocolate doughnut, gooey caramel and peanut butter drizzle, and classic crunch of Reese’s Pieces.”
Not surprisingly, Krisy Kreme and Reese’s fans alike are eager to give this doughnut a try. Check out some social media reactions below:

However, not everyone is on board with the Krispy Kreme and Reese’s collab, as some have remarked the new doughnut is “overwhelming.”
Exactly. I like Krispy Kreme and Reese’s Pieces, but IDK about all that. LOL

Your new Reese’s is about 4 our 10. Just stick to what you are good at “original glazed”. Love the twitter feeds.
