Are you the proud owner of a very good boy (or girl)? So you’ll want to run, not walk, for Krispy Kreme Friday.
The beloved donut chain has announced that in honor of National Dog Day, it will be expanding its offering to include puppy-friendly options.
The limited-edition baked goodies — dubbed “Doggie Donuts” — will be available Aug. 26 at participating stores while supplies last (prices vary by location), according to a press release.
A box of Doggie Donuts is said to include six donut-shaped cookies inspired by classic Krispy Kreme donuts. The treats themselves are not actually made by Krispy Kreme, but the Australian artisan treats company for pets Huds and Tokes.
According to official statements from the Krispy Kreme website, Doggie Donuts was designed to be suitable for dogs of all sizes and ages. The treats feature a tough cookie consistency and quality ingredients, such as carob (a common pet-safe chocolate substitute) and peanut butter.
But that’s not all! For a little extra sweetness, the company also announced the release of limited-edition pet bandanas. The the one-size-fits-all red accessory is printed with a lovely pattern of dogs, bones and donuts; and will be available in select stores this weekend or while supplies last.
“Our dogs have given us so much love and comfort to help us over the past two years. They deserve this special treatment,” Krispy Kreme Global Chief Brand Officer Dave Skena stated in the press release.
