Krispy Kreme Introduces New Caribbean-Inspired Treats

For a Limited Time, New Doughnut and Chillers Offer Taste of the Tropics

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., April 8, 2008 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is taking it to the tropics this spring by introducing two new treats bursting with island flavor.

The Caribbean Kreme doughnut and Chillers feature the intense flavors of freshly ripened tropical fruits. The doughnut is filled with a blend of exotic mango, pineapple and passion fruit, and topped with delicious white icing and shortcake crunch. Putting a new spin on the signature Krispy Kreme doughnut, this savory tropical treat will transport your senses to the sun-drenched beaches of the Caribbean.

As the perfect complement to the new doughnut, Krispy Kreme has also created a Caribbean Kreme Chiller. This tasty blend of pineapple, mango and orange flavors can be ordered in a creamy blend or frozen fruity version. Both can be the featured treat for an island-inspired springtime gathering with friends and family.

"Looking to have a fun Caribbean-themed party? Pick up a dozen Caribbean Kreme doughnuts and chillers, invite your friends and have a tropical celebration!" said Ron Rupocinski, Krispy Kreme's Executive Chef.

Caribbean Kreme doughnuts and Chillers are available for a limited time at participating stores from now until June 2. Large orders can be placed at no additional cost by calling a local Krispy Kreme store at least 48 hours in advance. For more information, please visit
