Krispy Kreme has said its doughnuts will be available in a selected number of Tesco stores, and Circle K's Kill North store on the N7 from next Monday, 12 April.

The American company said all their doughnuts are made in their flagship Blanchardstown store and will be delivered directly to retail stores every day.

The first phase of Krispy Kreme's introduction to retail stores includes 20 locations including Tesco Extra stores in Clarehall, Naas, Maynooth and Balbriggan and Tesco superstores in Tallaght, Stillorgan, Bloomfields, Bray and Ballybrack along with Circle K Kill North.

Customers will be able to choose from some of their most popular doughnuts, including original glazed, chocolate dreamcake, lotus biscoff and nutty chocolatta.

The doughnuts will be available from Krispy Kreme's digital display cabinets, which were rolled out in the UK last year.

Declan Foley, Krispy Kreme Country Manager for Ireland said the investment in these cabinets represents a "significant" capital expenditure for the business.

Mr Foley said they are also looking forward to opening a new store in Dublin this summer, at Central Plaza on Dame Street.

"In addition to the cabinets our new 'Hot Now' store in Central Plaza will be a fully immersive experience for Krispy Kreme fans as they get too see the product from start to finish.

"We look forward to continuing to bring even more joy to our customers and creating smiles with these new developments, which also demonstrates our commitment to investing in the Irish market for the long-term," he added.
