I can't count the number of times my New Year's resolution has been to cut back on sweets, but Krispy Kreme's new mini doughnuts are basically doing all the work for me this year. Available as of Jan. 6, the adorable little treats are less than 100 calories each and are sweet enough to satisfy almost any sugar craving. The mini desserts are smaller versions of the chain's most popular doughnuts, including the Original Glazed, Chocolate Iced Glazed, Chocolate Iced With Sprinkles, and Strawberry Iced With Sprinkles — is anyone else's mouth watering yet?
"Too many people bail on their New Year's resolutions before they are even halfway through January — that's no good," Dave Skena, the brand's chief marketing officer, said in a press release. "Sometimes a mini-indulgence, or cheat, is all you need to help you stick with it, so we miniaturized our most popular doughnuts."
While the mini doughnuts will be available all year long, January is definitely the time to try them. During every Monday of the month, Krispy Kreme will be hosting "Mini Mondays" — aka mini doughnut happy hours from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. — and offering customers a free mini doughnut of their choice! Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, if you ask me.
