McDonald’s certainly is known for testing new menu items at any given time of the year—but it’s rare to find the fast food chain testing out fare from an entirely different restaurant. However, clearly anything is possible because McDonald’s has just announced its plan to test Krispy Kreme doughnuts in select locations, reports Delish.
Yes, the hot-and-ready doughnuts are heading to a McDonald’s near you—that is if you live near one of nine restaurants in the Louisville, Kentucky, area.
During the test run, Krispy Kreme will provide three of its most popular doughnuts: Original Glazed Doughnut, Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles Doughnut, and Raspberry Filled Doughnut. The sweet treats, which can be purchased individually or as part of a six pack, will be delivered to participating restaurants fresh each day.
“McDonald’s is always looking for ways to give our fans more of what they crave, and we often conduct tests to inform future menu decisions,” reads a press release announcing the test. “This small-scale test will help us understand how offering new bakery items like Krispy Kreme could impact operations in our restaurants.”
Krispy Kreme doughnuts aren’t the only new addition McDonald’s is testing this year. In August, the fast food chain announced that it would be testing the Chicken Big Mac at select locations in Miami for a limited time.
