Krispy Kreme launches Oreo and Chips Ahoy! doughnut line for limited time: 'Crazy explosion of cookies'
Krispy Kreme has a new line of cookie-flavored doughnuts that use Oreo and Chips Ahoy! pieces.
The four-piece "Cookie Blast!" set is available for purchase now, and it will be available at Krispy Kreme shops nationwide through Sunday, May 7, according to the doughnut chain’s website and press release.
One of the cookie doughnut varieties – the Oreo Cookies & Kreme Filled Doughnut – is a returning "fan favorite" that’s made with a trademarked Cookies & Kreme filling, dark chocolate icing, Oreo cookie pieces and a white icing drizzle.

Two of the limited-time cookie doughnuts are made with Chips Ahoy! cookie pieces for consumers who prefer chocolate chips over crushed wafers and vanilla creme.
The first option – the Chips Ahoy! Candy Blasts Doughnut – uses Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed Doughnut as a base and has a cookie dough icing that’s topped with Chips Ahoy! cookie pieces, milk chocolate candy gems and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

The second Chips Ahoy! doughnut – the Chips Ahoy! Cookie Dough Kreme Doughnut – is made with a plain doughnut, a trademarked Chips Ahoy! Cookies & Kreme filling, chocolate icing, cookie dough drizzle and a trio of miniature Chips Ahoy! cookies.
Krispy Kreme completes its limited-edition Cookie Blast! doughnut line with an Oreo and Chips Ahoy! Cookie Blast Doughnut, which the company has branded as "a crazy explosion of cookies."

The hybrid cookie doughnut is made with an Oreo Cookies & Kreme filling that encases two chewy Chips Ahoy! cookies.
The sweet treat is then dipped in cookie dough icing and topped with crushed Oreo and Chips Ahoy! cookie pieces.
Krispy Kreme finishes the doughnut with a dollop of its Oreo Cookies and Kreme icing, a single miniature Oreo cookie and a single miniature Chips Ahoy! cookie.
Doughnut fans who don't live near a Krispy Kreme shop may have an opportunity to purchase a six-count box of the limited-edition treats from Walmart, Kroger, Food Lion, Publix, Stater Brothers, Wakefern and other regional grocery stores.
"Imagine your favorite doughnut with two Chips Ahoy! cookies inside it. We made that a reality," said Dave Skena, global chief brand officer for Krispy Kreme, in a statement.
