Krispy Kreme unveils 'Conversation Doughnuts' for Valentine's Day amid rumored Sweethearts shortage

Last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts

Quick and simple last-minute Valentine’s Day presents.

As the old saying goes, when one door closes, another box of doughnuts opens – or at least, it does in this case.

Ahead of Feb. 14, Krispy Kreme has rolled out a limited-edition menu of what they’ve dubbed “Conversation Doughnuts” – heart-shaped, iced pastries stamped with funny, flirty Valentine’s Day messages sure to sweeten up your special someone.

From Jan. 14 through Valentine’s Day, the single, coupled-up, and simply hungry doughnut-lovers of the world alike can score the sweet treats in cake batter, strawberries and Kreme, raspberry and chocolate flavors.

Keeping up with the times, Krispy Kreme has stamped the doughnuts with a slew of romantic slogans that are thoroughly 2019 – such as “DM ME,” “ALL THE FEELS,” “SO EXTRA,” – in addition to classic V-Day quips like “BE MINE” and “I [heart] YOU.”

“Finding the right word can be like, I don’t know….hard. But eating a doughnut is easy. So, we printed the right words on the doughnuts for you so you can’t mess this up,” said Dave Skena, chief marketing officer.

In other snack-related V-Day headlines, there’s rumored to be a bit of a problematic shortage of the classic Sweethearts candy this year.
