Because a picture says a thousand words, I'm not going to spend a lot of time explaining Krispy Kreme's latest concoctions. You can take a look at them yourself.
Krispy Kreme is getting into the ice cream business. The donut -- er, doughnut -- chain is going to gradually be revamping its stores and giving its customers a few new menu items: milk shakes and ice cream. That ice cream sandwich made with a glazed donut looks particularly compelling. Can you imagine a hot donut and cold ice cream? That sounds divine!
Customers will also be able to customize their glazed donuts.
Don't get too excited just yet, because Krispy Kreme has so far only opened one store with the new design -- and with it the new menu items. That store is in Concord, North Carolina, and it opened today (7/23). But the company promises that more new stores and remodels of existing stores are coming.
