Big Apple Doughnut (Krispy Kreme donut, 2020)

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts opened a flagship Times Square store (1601 Broadway, at West 48th Street) on September 15, 2020. Exclusive to this store is the “Big Apple Doughnut,” meant to look like a Coney Island candy apple, sold in a special souvenir-type box and priced at $10.99.  From the Krispy Kreme website:

“A Times Square exclusive, this doughnut is filled with a Red Delicious flavored Kreme filling and dipped in a sweet, shiny red shimmer mirror glaze. Then we top it off with a royal icing green leaf and lightly salted pretzel stem.”

The Krispy Kreme “Big Apple Doughnut” shouldn’t be confused with Big Apple Donuts and Coffee, a café retailer in Malaysia specializing in donuts and coffee.

Krispy Kreme’s NYC Flagship Shop Will Sell An Exclusive Doughnut That’s A Nod To The City

Krispy Kreme announced its Times Square Flagship Shop in NYC will officially open on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
(...)
What really sets the flagship menu apart, though, is the new eye-catching Big Apple Doughnut, which is a nod to the city itself. The Big Apple Doughnut was inspired by the candy apples sold on Cony Island, and it looks just like an apple. Before it gets its signature look, the shell doughnut is filled with Red Delicious-flavored Kreme filling. Then, it’s dipped in a red-colored Candied Green Apple icing, giving it a shiny red mirror glaze, before it’s topped with a royal icing green leaf and a pretzel stick stem. TBH, it looks almost exactly like a candy apple, and it appears to be served in a specialty green box.

Krispy Kreme Big Apple Doughnut is the perfect taste for the NYC store

Drawing inspiration from the Coney Island candy apples, this doughnut has a bright red, shiny glaze. That sweet coating is more tempting that Snow White’s red apple.

While the visual appeals, the flavors deliver. This filled doughnut has a Red Delicious flavored kreme. Like any Krispy Kreme filled doughnut, the balance of dough to kreme is always perfection.

Lastly, the decoration completes the look. With a candy leaf and a pretzel stem, this doughnut is ready for its close-up.

As for the Big Apple Donut, Krispy Kreme said it was inspired by the candy apples sold all the way out at Coney Island. It’s made by filling a shell doughnut with red delicious-flavored Kreme filling. From there, it’s dipped in red-colored Candied Green Apple icing, which is where the shiny mirror glaze comes from. The treat is topped with a royal icing green leaf and a pretzel stick stem and is served up in a green box. It’s not cheap, however; one will cost you a whopping $10.99. It may be worth it just to say you tried it. It’ll be exclusive to New York City, after all.

I have completely lost my mind and paid $11 for a “Big Apple” candy apple donut at Krispy Kreme. They said the Times Square location is the only one in the world that sells it so I had to try it, but still....
$11 for a donut?!  Smh at myself
