Winston-Salem, N.C.,/PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- It's said that good things come in small packages, and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc.'s (NYSE: KKD) newest introduction, the mini doughnut, is no exception. In addition to these mini treats, Krispy Kreme is giving doughnut fans an even bigger reason to celebrate with the launch of a new sweepstakes that offers customers the opportunity to drive away in a set of MINI Cooper wheels.
The minis sweepstakes will give one lucky person a chance to ride in style in a brand-new 2009 MINI Cooper. Beginning April 27 through May 31, customers can enter to win by receiving an entry code with any mini doughnut purchase at participating Krispy Kreme stores. Krispy Kreme fans can also go online at www.KrispyKreme.com to enter the sweepstakes with no purchase necessary. The grand prize winner will be selected on or about June 15, 2009.
Krispy Kreme's new tasty mini treats, which add to the company's legendary doughnut lineup, are about half the size of traditional doughnuts and are available in three delicious varieties: Signature Original Glazed(R), Chocolate Iced rings and Chocolate Iced rings with sprinkles. Minis make just the right addition to any party or gathering with family or friends. Pick up a few to enjoy solo or share them with colleagues at the office--it's an ideal way to stretch anyone's doughnut dollar.
"Our new mini doughnuts are small, and irresistible," said Ron Rupocinski, executive chef for Krispy Kreme. "These affordable and adorable one-of-a-kind doughnuts make the perfect little indulgence at any party."
