Krispy Kreme's 'Friends' donut collection spark envy (...the one where they forgot the US)

Recommended Posts



Fresh off the sugary heels of their limited-edition Dolly Parton donuts, Krispy Kreme has ignited a new wave of FOMO with a 'Friends' donut collection that's sending fans into a frenzy. Here's the sugary sting: it's currently only available in the UK and Ireland.

Imagine the agony for American fans. Donuts are practically a cornerstone of American food culture,¬†and 'Friends,' a show that defined a generation of American television.¬†Yet,¬†these delectable 'Friends'-themed treats are tantalizing taste buds across the Atlantic.¬†This unexpected marketing move has left many American fans feeling like they've been served a plate of Phoebe Buffay's "Smelly Cat"‚ÄĒdisappointed.¬†


We can only reminisce about our 'Central Perk' fantasies through reruns, while our 'Friends'-loving counterparts across the pond get to celebrate with a sweet and sentimental treat.


For those lucky enough to be in the UK, prepare to celebrate your favorite sitcom with these donut delights! Each donut boasts a clever name and captures an iconic moment from the show. Here's the delicious breakdown:

  • The "Friends" Donut: This classic glazed beauty, adorned with chocolate icing, sprinkles, and a white chocolate "Friends" logo, is a timeless tribute to the show itself.
  • The "How You Doin'?" Donut: This classic ring donut dipped in vibrant purple icing with a tangy mango and passionfruit frosting perfectly captures Joey's iconic catchphrase. The hint of yellow frosting might even remind you of Monica's apartment door peephole.
  • The "We Were on a Coffee Break" Donut: This glazed donut is a coffee lover's dream. Topped with a delicious caff√® latte flavored icing, a chocolate swirl, and a white chocolate "Central Perk Coffee" logo, it's a sweet homage to the show's beloved hangout.
  • The "Trifle" Donut: This delightful strawberry and custard-filled donut topped with chocolate curls and festive green sprinkles celebrates Rachel's unforgettable (and hopefully redeemed!) Thanksgiving dessert disaster.


Fans, would you wait in line for a chance to snag these 'Friends'-themed donuts? What other flavors or references would you love to see included in a potential US release (if ever)? Let's commiserate (or celebrate, if you're lucky enough to be in the UK or Ireland) and share your thoughts and unleash your inner Chandler-esque sarcasm (or Phoebe-like quirkiness) in the comments below. Maybe, just maybe, the power of collective donut desire can reach Krispy Kreme HQ and bring these treats to our shores!
