Love doughnuts but don't eat animal products? Krispy Kreme has now joined the plant-based fold, launching its vegan-friendly wares Down Under. From Wednesday, November 1, the chain will be slinging round desserts made without animal-derived ingredients in both Australia and New Zealand, with two flavours on offer — and one sticking around.

Krispy Kreme is no stranger to specials, whether it's giving away doughnuts for dressing up in Halloween costumes, introducing the world to duffins — yes, doughnut muffins — or making a Maxibon doughnut. But vegan-friendly doughnuts should never just be a limited-time thing. That's why the new apple custard crumble variety is joining the brand's menu permanently, although the fudge brownie doughnut is only on offer until early December.

So, from now until forever — after launching to celebrate World Vegan Day, in fact — you can tuck into a shell-shaped doughnut that boasts apple custard inside, and has then been dipped in spiced icing and vanilla biscuit crumb.

Or, until Monday, December 4, the fudge brownie bliss doughnut will get you eating a shell-shaped doughnut filled with brownie batter, then dunked in chocolate icing and topped with chocolate biscuit crumbs.

Everyone can find the two doughnuts in Australian and New Zealand stores, online, and at 7-Eleven in Australia and bp Connect in NZ, with the fudge brownie bliss doughnut on offer until Monday, December 4.

If you're wondering what vegan-friendly means, the doughnuts don't use egg or milk ingredients at all. Krispy Kreme's facilities do still handle animal products, however, so the new vegan-friendly fare is made at sites where animal-derived ingredients are present. That said, measures are taken to ensure cross-contamination.
