A Look at Krispy Kreme's 2023 St. Patrick's Day Donuts

Krispy Kreme's 2023 St. Patrick's Day Donuts features a gold-themed and is represented by four donuts--the Golden Cookies & Kreme Donut, Hat O' Gold Donut, Golden Sprinkle Donut, and ​Rainbow Kreme Filled Donut.

It costs $19.99 in my area for the "Good as Gold" dozen but I received this courtesy of Krispy Kreme. The dozen comes in a green plaid box for St. Patrick's Day.

Besides the Golden Cookies & Kreme Donut, which comes with golden cookie pieces and golden-cookie-Kreme, this year's batch of St. Patrick's Day donuts take the chain's regular donuts and decorate them for the green-centric holiday, which means there's not much in the way of new or limited-time time flavors here.

The Golden Cookies & Kreme Donut​ is a golden-cookie-Kreme-filled donut shell dipped in white icing and topped with golden cookie pieces and a gold sprinkle blend that fits the "good as gold" theme well as the gold sprinkles sparkle and the golden cookie pieces stand in for dirt or something similar.

Taste-wise, the golden-cookie-Kreme offers a mild vanilla cookie taste, while the golden cookie pieces were soft and crumbly like cake.

The Hat O' Gold Donut​ features a chocolate iced donut decorated with a plaid green icing pattern and topped with a leprechaun hat sugar piece. It's less of a plaid icing patter and more like a green crosshatch over chocolate frosting. There's not much gold here except for the buckle on the hat sugar piece but the green hat does sparkle a little.

The Golden Sprinkle Donut consists of  an Original Glazed donut dipped in green icing and topped with a gold St. Patrick’s Day sprinkle blend. It makes for a slight variation on the chain's regular sprinkle donut that adopts various green hues. While there are golden sprinkles, there are also white and green sprinkles.

The Rainbow Kreme Filled Donut​ is a shell donut filled with white Kreme, topped with green icing, and decorated with a rainbow sugar piece, vanilla buttercream, and gold coin sprinkles. It makes for a nice look with a rainbow bridging two buttercream clouds with a smattering of gold coin sprinkles around them.
