Say what you want about Valentine’s Day. That it’s become a corporate holiday. That it’s for saps. That you should show people you love them every day. What I dare you to say is that you don’t like Valentine’s Day food.
From heading to Olive Garden for breadsticks to the sheer amount of chocolate available on grocery store shelves, there’s likely some romantic holiday treat that makes you say, “Meh, maybe this isn’t so bad.” This year, it’s going to be Krispy Kreme’s Valentine’s Day doughnuts. Because there’s no better way to say I love you than with doughnuts.
If you love the idea of Sweethearts candy but hate their mildly chalky flavor, Krispy Kreme has created the ultimate gift for you (or you know, your significant other, but if your partner doesn’t share their doughnuts, should they really be your partner?). The fried dough brand has created heart-shaped doughnuts you can send to a loved one for the romantic holiday, and you can do it right now.
The new doughnuts—with their own unique pastel-colored messages—launched January 27, and will be available up until the big day on February 14. According to Elite Daily, the heart-shaped doughy balls of goodness are filled with four different flavors: cake batter, strawberries and cream, chocolate, and original creme. The messages range from several different iterations of “Bae” to, “I Love You.” Altogether, you have two dozen messages to choose from.
While the doughnuts themselves are clearly the star of the edible show, they’ll also come in a signature Valentine’s Day box. The bright pink packaging features the same sayings you’ll find on the treats themselves. But hey, packaging totally matters (especially when it’s pink, in my humble opinion).
If you want to get your own Krispy Kreme Valentine’s Day doughnuts or send them to a loved one, head to the chain’s site and use their handy store locator. Just try to save one for your Valentine.
