Many Meals May Require Mini Pies This Thanksgiving and Krispy Kreme Has Them

Millennials are inviting friends into their home for Thanksgiving Dinner this year, with any luck you will be one of the friends.  In fact, Millennials will have an average of 9.8 people at the table this year, compared to the total average of 7.4, according to IRI’s findings.

Some will have company for several days and that means sharing and enjoying leftovers. One question will there be left over desert?  Not to worry, according to Steven Johnson Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®; as Krispy Kreme today is introducing all-new mini pie doughnuts for Thanksgiving, enabling fans to share bite-sized thanks with families, friends and co-workers.  You can buy them fresh every day as many as needed.  Now this is personalization and customization. 

So, Krispy Kreme’s Thanksgiving minis make it easy to express your gratitude and bring the season’s most iconic pie flavors to life in delicious doughnut form:  

mini Pecan Pie Doughnut: a mini Original Glazed doughnut topped with a gooey butter tart filling, chopped pecans and snickerdoodle cookie pieces. 

mini Pumpkin Pie Doughnut: a mini doughnut with pumpkin pie filling, dipped in pumpkin pie spiced icing, and topped with snickerdoodle cookie pieces and a dollop of KREME™. 

mini Lemon Kreme Pie Doughnut: a mini doughnut with lemon filling, dipped in icing, and topped with a dollop of KREME™ and a dusting of powdered sugar.

 Krispy Kreme’s new mini pie doughnuts are available in 16-count boxes beginning Nov. 7 for a limited time at participating shops across the U.S. 

Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme, stated, “We show our thanks in many ways and there’s no better environment to share gratitude than by coming together over food, including sharing something sweet,” ... “In the tradition of favorite Thanksgiving desserts, our new mini pie doughnuts are the perfect bite-sized way to show your gratitude.”    

It gets even better as Krispy Kreme also is sweetening Friendsgiving gatherings, making it easier to show friends and co-workers “mini thanks” by offering guests a $1 Original Glazed dozen Nov. 18 and 19 with the purchase of a Thanksgiving mini pies 16-count box in shop, at drive-thru or online.
