HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF)- Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is having some fun this St. Patrick's Day and going green.
The doughnut giant is not only turning its iconic doughnut green, but for the first time, it's also changing the name to O'riginal Glazed on Friday, March 17 at participating locations, according to a press release.
"St. Patrick's Day is the perfect occasion to change the color of the Original Glazed, and our customers love sharing them with family and friends," said Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. "What's even rarer – like finding a four-leaf clover – is altering the name of such an iconic product. We've never done it. But in this instance, it's fun and joyful, just like the holiday."
The company wants customers to show their friends how they're getting into the St. Patty's Day spirit and going green by using #GreenDoughnuts.
