McDonald’s said it would test three types of Krispy Kreme items:

  • Original glazed
  • Chocolate iced with sprinkles
  • Raspberry-filled

“McDonald’s is always looking for ways to give our fans more of what they crave, and we often conduct tests to inform future menu decisions. This small-scale test will help us understand how offering new bakery items like Krispy Kreme could impact operations in our restaurants,” the company said in a release.

McDonald’s did not say how long the test would be.
