And bonus: it looks like a mini Original Glazed Donut!
When we’re talking donuts, a few name brands come to mind. But one player that is known for soft donuts that coat your fingers in a crystalline sugary glaze is none other than Krispy Kreme!
Beloved by local and international patrons alike, this US donut slash coffeehouse chain is known for their wide range of flavors, some classics, and a few limited-edition ones, like their fruit-inspired donuts in tropical flavors to fit the summer theme.
Along with a grand celebration of their birthday, Krispy Kreme revealed their newest gimmick in an exclusive event at Bonifacio High Street. Tons of activities awaited everyone! From a creative mix of entertainment and performance numbers to Instagram-worthy stations like this travel-inspired corner with a Kombi van and getaway essentials, we were all treated to an evening of fun.
But before the grand reveal, we were given a chance to visit the factory, where donuts were being churned by the second…
… to produce tasty Original Glazed Donuts for that much-needed sugar rush!
Along with the classic donut, we got to try a new and improved version: the Chocolate Glazed Donut! This version is the darker, more sinful sister of the Original Glaze— loaded with chocolatey goodness, from the chocolate doughnut to the sticky sweet coating that eclipses the whole treat.
After everyone was loaded with sugar in their BGC store, we were ushered back to the open space to witness the grand reveal. The stage opened up with a large Krispy Kreme box…
… to reveal the tiniest, most adorable card ever: the OG Card.
The name OG could stand for Original, or Original Glazed— their trademark donuts. Eitherway, this nifty little card is an all-access membership pass to free donuts, exclusive promos and invites, and so much more. It’s a definite must-have for donut-lovers everywhere!
