A bushel of sweetness is ushering a new fall tradition. Even though the pumpkin spice doughnuts have brought that first taste of warm, comforting flavors to the table, a new doughnut dozen will have many people cheering for more. The Krispy Kreme Autumn’s Orchard Collection and new Apple Fritter are here, and the bounty of fall sweetness is waiting to be enjoyed.

Throughout the year, Krispy Kreme has sought to bring seasonal flavors to the box. From the bright, fruit forward flavors to the playfulness in summer, each new offering makes people excited. Whether enjoyed with a cup of coffee, a glass of milk or just on its own, there is always a place for another doughnut.

The newest offering, the Krispy Kreme Autumn’s Orchard Collection celebrates apples, maple and bold fall flavors. While sweetness ties all of these flavors together, each doughnut captures fall in the most robust way. Even if all that pumpkin spice still calls, these new doughnut flavors deserve a moment in the spotlight.

According to Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme, “Fall brings a bounty of apples and pecans and flavors of maple and pumpkin spice for us to enjoy. Our new Autumn’s Orchard Collection has all of that and more. Just one bite of our new handmade fritter with real diced apples and generous amounts of cinnamon will make you a fan of fall if you’re not already.”

What new flavors are featured in the Krispy Kreme Autumn’s Orchard Collection?

As seen in the recent announcement, the Krispy Kreme Autumn’s Orchard Collection features Maple Pecan Cheesecake Doughnut (new), Spiced Apple Filled Doughnut (new), Salted Caramel Brownie Doughnut, and Pumpkin Spice Cake Doughnut. In addition, Krispy Kreme is adding a new Apple Fritter.

Before discussing the new dozen, the Apple Fritter deserves a special mention. As seen earlier this year, Krispy Kreme has looked to bring new offerings to the case. With many people loving both the Cinnamon Roll and the most recent offering, ChurrDoughs, it shows the brand’s willingness to expand beyond the traditional doughnut. Even though people will always crave that Original Glazed, the new flavors bring excitement to enjoy another bite.

The Apple Fritter celebrates the sweetness that apples offer. With diced apples, that touch of texture makes each bite enjoyable. With apple filling and a heaping about of cinnamon, the flavor is clearly an apple celebration. While it might be a great breakfast option, it could be a delightful choice as an apple dessert. It captures all those fall notes without having to bake.

The Autumn’s Orchard Collection combines both new and old flavors in the box. From the combination of sweet and savory with the Salted Caramel Brownie to the warm spices in the Pumpkin offering, these classic doughnuts contrast the new flavor offerings. Balancing familiar and innovative, the new collection captures that comfort feeling that seems to the fall sentiment.

The Spiced Apple Filled Doughnut might give pumpkin spice a run for its money. The apple cider flavor filling has that touch of tartness which makes the cinnamon sugar just a little sweeter. This idea was a nice elevation of a traditional apple cider doughnut that is often found at the pumpkin patch.

The Maple Pecan Cheesecake Doughnut might be the sweetest offering in the box. With cheesecake-flavored filling, the doughnut is quite rich. As the maple icing and drizzle bring the sugary notes, it is the pecans that offer the contrast in texture. Similar to the apple fritter, this doughnut could be a dessert option. Doughnuts can be enjoyed any time of day.

The Krispy Kreme Autumn’s Orchard Collection is available now for a limited time. The Autumn’s Orchard Collection can be purchased individually or combined in a dozen, which includes three of each flavor. In addition, the Apple Fritter can be purchased in a box of four or individually.
