Krispy Kreme Launches Southern Sweets With Icon Dolly Parton


The Backwoods Barbie has joined forces with Krispy Kreme to treat her fans with the ultimate doughnut collection, with a special bonus if they dress up like the star.

This week Krispy Kreme released its “Dolly Southern Sweets” collection with global country star Dolly Parton, its first partnership with the singer and actress.

The limited-time only collection, available in a custom Dolly dozen box, contains four new doughnut flavors, including the Dolly Dazzler Doughnut, an Original Glazed version dipped in strawberry icing, with gold, pink and white glitter sprinkles and Dolly’s signature chocolate butterfly piece. The Peachy Keen Cobbler Doughnut is an unglazed doughnut filled with peach filling, dipped in brown sugar icing and cobbler topping. Then there’s The Banana Puddin’ Pie and the Chocolate Crème Pie doughnuts.



“Krispy Kreme and Dolly Parton have a special thing in common: We both love to share joy!” said Dave Skena, global chief brand officer for Krispy Kreme, in a release.

Super Dolly fans who visit a Krispy Kreme location can win a free treat May 18. Per the release, “Anyone ‘Dolly’d Up’ – from being totally Dolly decked out to wearing a Dolly Parton wig or their favorite Dolly merch – will receive a free Original Glazed doughnut.” Not willing to don the Dolly duds?  Fans can still receive a free Original Glazed by singing a favorite Dolly Parton song.

“Having some of my very favorite southern flavors in one, unique doughnut collection from Krispy Kreme is so special to me,” Parton said in the release. “These doughnuts remind me of home."

A limited-edition six pack of Dolly doughnuts will be made fresh daily and available at select grocery stores across the country.
