Krispy Kreme has partnered with Lotus Biscoff to create a Banana Kreme Pie doughnut.

The doughnut contains a banana and Lotus Biscoff Kreme-filled centre and is hand-dipped in Lotus Biscoff spread icing, along with a biscuit crumb and a chocolate piece topping.

It forms part of Krispy Kreme’s limited-edition American Pie range, which also includes Cherry Pie, Maple Pecan Pie and Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie flavours.

“After another careful development process, the team at Krispy Kreme have outdone themselves with the new Banana Kreme Pie,” said Frances Booth, category marketing manager at Lotus Bakeries.

“The balance between the flavour of Krispy Kreme’s traditional recipe, Lotus Biscoff, creamy banana and just a hint of chocolate is a winning combination. It’s another unique and innovative way to enjoy the taste of Lotus Biscoff that we are sure all customers and our loyal Lotus Biscoff fans will love.”

To celebrate the launch of the American Pie range, Krispy Kreme is to open a swinging sixties doughnut bar in London’s West End.

Last year, Krispy Kreme partnered with Lotus Biscoff on a S’mores doughnut, iwhich contained a mallow filling, Lotus Biscoff crumb and chocolate icing.
