Krispy Kreme UK is continuing to expand its store numbers and is to launch a new patisserie doughnut range in time for Easter.

The doughnut specialist is adding three “luxurious” doughnuts to the range, which will be available from 30 March to 10 May, 2009, in all Krispy Kreme stores and Tesco in-store cabinets.

The new Coffee Swirl doughnut is filled with smooth coffee crème and iced and decorated with a chocolate spiral and mocha bean; the Belgian Chocolate variety is filled with Belgian chocolate, hand dipped in chocolate icing and topped with a white chocolate fan; and the Black Forest doughnut has a cherry filling and is topped with a maraschino cherry and chocolate shavings.

The firm is also opening two new stores in April and is currently planning a big marketing campaign for the summer.
