Krispy Kreme Offers “Big Red” Doughnut This Summer
**Full Disclosure: I received product in exchange for my review, but not to worry, all opinions are 100% mine.
Krispy Kreme offers a Texas tradition to their sweet menu! Starting Sunday, June 24, Krispy Kreme and Big Red will offer the new Big Red Kreme-filled doughnut at select San Antonio locations (see below). The Big Red Kreme-filled doughnut will only be available on Sunday’s this summer. Locations include:
12328 IH 10 West, San Antonio, TX 78230
2703 S.E. Military Dr., San Antonio, TX 78223
I was invited into the Krispy Kreme San Antonio located at 1117 N. Loop 1604 East to try their new Big Red Kreme-filled doughnut for its debut yesterday. Now, who can pass up fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts on a Sunday morning, especially when the sign out front says “Hot Now”. That sign says, “We just made a new batch of fresh doughnuts so get in here NOW!” This new Krispy Kreme addition is a Texas special because it is both filled and glazed with a Texas icon, Big Red, a favorite among Texas soda fans. So this Texas girl and Big Red fan had to try this new doughnut delight. Not only is this red glazed treat a pop of color with sprinkles on top, it is a pop of Big Red flavor. The creme and glaze really do have the taste and slight tanginess of the popular beverage, but just enough to delight, not overpower, the taste of the doughnut we also love. I want to encourage all my Texas fans to stop into one of the participating Krispy Kreme shops and order one, two, or a dozen for that next picnic, barbecue or beach trip. Don’t forget to pick up some gift cards for all your friends so they can go buy a few for themselves. This doughnut is a #TEXASTASTESENSATION! But please remember you can only get them on Sundays and only until Sunday, September 2nd.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts has partnered with Big Red to offer a Big Red Kreme-filled doughnut for the summer. Earlier this spring, Krispy Kreme’s Big Red doughnut was an exclusive product offering at the San Antonio Big Red & Barbacoa Festival. The doughnut was wildly popular at the festival so the decision was made to bring it into the Krispy Kreme shops as a “Sunday only” offering.
“There are a lot of picnics and barbecues on Sundays and a Big Red doughnut was the perfect sweet treat for those occasions,” says Tim Sabo, Marketing Director of Glazing Saddles LLC., a Krispy Kreme Texas franchisee.
“Big Red is a beloved soda with over 80 years of history in Texas. We’re thrilled to partner with Krispy Kreme to offer consumers a fun, unique way to enjoy two iconic and delicious brands,” said Thomas Oh, SVP Marketing, Big Red.
The Big Red Doughnut will be offered through Sunday, Sept 2nd at participating Texas Krispy Kreme shops: Austin (2), San Antonio(4) , San Marcos (1), Laredo (1) and McAllen (1).
