International doughnut chain Krispy Kreme is launching its first ever vegan doughnut, which will be available for pre-order on December 21 and delivery starting January 5 at locations across the United Kingdom. The new doughnut is a bespoke vegan recipe of the chain’s Original Glazed variety and is being launched in time for Veganuary—a campaign that challenges people to go vegan for the month of January and beyond.
“We are excited to extend our range of iconic irresistibly original doughnuts with the launch of our first ever Vegan offering, available exclusively in the UK,” Louise Direito, Krispy Kreme UK and Ireland’s Head of Innovation, said. “We know January is a time that many are trying out new lifestyles and set ourselves the challenge to create a plant-based doughnut that is equally delicious as the original, with absolutely no compromise.”
The new Original Glazed Vegan Doughnut—priced comparably to the non-vegan version at £10.45 per dozen—will also be available at Hotlight Stores where customers can purchase a hot, freshly made doughnut from 7pm to 8pm every day.
