Krispy Kreme’s Original Glazed is a classic donut, but the sweet-slinging chain is never content to just let well enough alone. It’s constantly concocting new variations on the breakfast dessert.

Its latest is a series of churro-inspired donuts called the ChurrDough Collection. Starting September 5, the suite of three new donuts will be available for just a little while. They’ll be for sale individually or in a special three-pack that lets you try them all. 

You’ll find the Cinnamon Sugar Churrdough, which is tossed in cinnamon sugar and topped with a swirl of cinnamon Kreme and salted caramel crunch pieces. The Cookies & Kreme Churrdough is similarly tossed in cinnamon sugar, but comes decorated with swirls of chocolate cookie Kreme and topped with chocolate cookie pieces and chocolate icing. The last of the trio is the Dulce De Leche Churrdough, which is–gasp–tossed in cinnamon sugar and decorated with a swirl of cream cheese icing before getting topped with cookie pieces and dulce de leche drizzle.

If you can’t resist a breakfast incarnation of a churro, call ahead to your local shop to be sure they’re serving them. The limited-time-only donuts are only available at some locations. Want more Thrillist? Follow us on InstagramTwitterPinterestYouTubeTikTok, and Snapchat.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
