Celebrating Pups And Pumpkins Spice For International Dog Day

Krispy Kreme

Ahead of International Dog Day, celebrated on the 26th of August, iconic doughnut brand Krispy Kreme has launched specialty Pumpkin-Spice-themed doughnut editions crafted and safe to eat for pups.

In the USA the Pup'kin Spice Doggie Doughnuts come after Krispy Kreme's recent Pumpkin Spice doughnuts launched earlier in the month. These handmade doughnut-shaped biscuits for dogs will be available from now to the 31st of August while stocks last.

The new Doggie Doughnuts include the Pup'kin Spice Original Glazed, Pup'kin Spice Cake, Pup'kin Spice Maple Peanut, and Pup'kin Spice Cheesecake Swirl.

This is the second consecutive year that Krispy Kreme has celebrated dogs and their owners by offering Doggie Doughnuts, creating an opportunity for delicious, shared moments around one of fall's favourite flavours.

"Dogs add so much to our lives, so for National Dog Day, we've upped our game for you to give them the awesome treat they deserve," said Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme.

"We know you love our Pumpkin Spice, and now it's time for dogs to get in on the action. We're positive (groan). Your dogs will love them."

Pup'kin Spice Doggie Doughnuts are safe, dog-friendly, doughnut-shaped biscuits handmade by Huds and Toke, an Australia-based artisan baked pet treat company.

Each treat is explicitly designed for dogs of all sizes and ages, made with a hard-baked cookie and ingredients such as pumpkin, peanut butter and carob, a substitute for chocolate. Pup'kin Spice Doggie Doughnuts are intended as a snack and are not formulated to be served as a complete and balanced meal.
