Back in January, Krispy Kreme customers voted for a lemon glaze donut in a #VoteforGlaze campaign, and now it’s finally time for the new flavor to hit store shelves. Just when we thought the pastry hut would never be able to top its 24 karat gold donut (!), the chain has gone and done just that, giving us a flavor we could have hand-picked ourselves. Oh wait… we did! We’ll have to act fast to get our hot little hands on them. The donut will be only available April 23 through April 29 in participating U.S. and Canadian stores. Check the Krispy Kreme Lemon webpage to see what locations carry the flavor.

Balancing a bright, fresh lemon citrus zest with all the same sugary glaze you’ve come to know and love, the lemon donut has us drooling. We’re not the only ones, either. As Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer of Krispy Kreme said in a press release, “There has been so much anticipation and zest for the new Lemon Glaze Donut, we can’t wait to share the joy with our fans!”

Woodward went on to say that while mastering the donut’s flavor wasn’t easy, it proved well worth it in the end. “Experimenting with the many flavor profiles lemon presents to create an all-new lemon glaze was a fun, but serious culinary challenge… The bar doesn’t get any higher,” she added.
