Come Monday, it’ll be harder to keep some New Year’s resolutions.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts announced Friday that it is releasing a new Chocolate Glaze Collection on Jan. 14, featuring four new doughnuts along with a sweet deal for new members of its loyalty program.
But the North Carolina-based company also has a suggestion for dieters: “Don’t Quit, Cheat Sweet.”
“If you’re taking a brief break from your diet or exercise routine, you may as well make it worth it,” said Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts chief marketing officer in a statement. “This is worth it.”
The doughnuts in the Chocolate Glaze Collection are classic flavors including cake batter and raspberry filled.
Krispy Kreme has an extra treat for anyone who joins Krispy Kreme Rewards by downloading the mobile app or online starting Monday through Jan. 27.
For joining, get a free dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts with the purchase of any dozen at regular price at participating locations nationwide.
