Krispy Kreme Korea Serves Up Colorful, Shiny, Sparkling Donuts

With an appearance that might be more at home on someone's nails, Krispy Kreme South Korea's new Rainbow Gloss Donuts offer a glossy, sparkling sheen of icing.

The donuts feature the Original Glazed topped with sparkly, flavored icing. They come in five different colors to mimic a rainbow: Purple Gloss, Green Gloss, Yellow Gloss, Orange Gloss, and Red Gloss.

Purple Gloss is blueberry-flavored, Green Gloss is kiwi-flavored, Yellow Gloss is mango-flavored, and Orange Gloss is orange-flavored. Deviating from the fruit theme (and the expected strawberry or cherry), Red Gloss instead features the flavor of red velvet.

A single donut runs for 1500 Won (~$1.28 USD).

Interestingly, the gloss donuts aren't new to the chain and are even offered over in the UK. However, Krispy Kreme UK only offers the Strawberry Gloss donut rather than a rainbow assortment.

Personally, I find the appearance of the icing a little unnerving because it reminds me of those sparkly gel roller pens, lip gloss, and window gel clings (i.e. things you normally wouldn't be eating).
