With the recent sale of NECCO, and the resulting announcement by the new owner Spangler that the wildly popular Valentine’s Day favorite confection, Sweethearts, will not be available again until, at the projected earliest of 2020, many candy lover’s were both caught off guard and heartbroken.
However, seeing a need to fill a very important void, the makers of Krispy Kreme donuts come to the rescue, having come up with the perfect solution—conversational heart donuts. Swooping in at the midnight hour, the world famous donut maker announced the launch of a cute as can be Valentine’s day themed food, and fans of donuts and Sweethearts are over the moon thrilled.
Not only is the new creation a combination of the what fans of the candy confection love—the shape and the heartfelt sentiments—but also the tasty sweetness of a delicious Krispy Kreme donut. Although admittedly, the Sweethearts themselves are not that big on sweetness, you can rest assured that the Krispy Kreme version is, and then some. I mean, who doesn’t like donuts—right?
The new creations are available in your choice of Krispy Kreme’s classic fillings, including Cake Batter, Strawberries and Kreme, Raspberry, and Chocolate Kreme.
