Krispy Kreme is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day not with a four-leaf clover, but with four brand-new doughnuts — plus the return of a fan favorite.

The new St. Patrick’s Day collection features the new Golden Cookies & Kreme doughnut, Hat O’ Gold doughnut, Golden Sprinkle doughnut and Rainbow Kreme Filled doughnut.

The Hat O’ Gold doughnut​ is a chocolate iced doughnut decorated with a plaid green icing pattern and topped with a leprechaun hat sugar piece. The Golden Sprinkle doughnut is glazed, then dipped in green icing and topped with a gold St. Patrick’s Day sprinkle blend.

If you prefer doughnuts with filling, the Golden Cookies & Kreme Doughnut is filled with Kreme, dipped in white icing and covered in golden cookie pieces and sprinkles, while the Rainbow Kreme Filled Doughnut​ is filled with Kreme, topped with green icing and decorated with a rainbow sugar piece, vanilla buttercream and gold coin sprinkles.

The St. Patrick’s Day doughnuts are available in shops now and a 6-pack of the doughnuts, including a Chocolate Iced with St. Patrick’s Sprinkles Doughnut, will be in select grocery stores for a limited time.

Your luck for a sweet treat doesn’t stop there this St. Patrick’s Day, however. Anyone wearing green can stop into a Krispy Kreme location on either March 16 or 17 for a free green O’riginal glazed doughnut, no purchase necessary.

The O’riginal glazed doughnut tastes the same as a standard glazed doughnut, but is coated in green glaze. You can also purchase a dozen O’riginal Glazed Doughnuts if you want to share some luck ‘o the Irish with co-workers, friends or family, but only on March 16 and 17; you have to preorder then on March 15.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
