For the first time ever, fans who visit participating Krispy Kreme shops throughout the U.S., Saturday, March 14 through St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, will find doughnut display cases filled with greenified versions of their favorite Krispy Kreme doughnuts, including Chocolate Iced with green kreme, Cake Batter with green icing, Strawberry Iced with St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, OREO Cookies & Kreme with green icing drizzle and Chocolate Iced Custard filled with shamrock sprinkles.

And in a stroke of innovation, or perhaps just plain luck, Krispy Kreme has devised a delicious way to catch these tricksters with an all-new Leprechaun Trap Doughnut. The doughnut – decorated as a pot of gold and filled with irresistible Irish Kreme flavored filling – will be available in limited quantities each day. Only a very lucky few guests in every shop will have a chance to catch one each day.

“Do you love doughnuts? Leprechauns sure do. They turned all our doughnuts green. We even caught a few, and if you’re lucky, you can catch one, too,” says Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme.
