The famous doughnut company which we all know and love, Krispy Kreme are launching a campaign to search for their biggest fan, to be crowned the 'Hotlight Hero'.

This competition is celebrating a new Hotlight service which they’re bringing to their one and only Irish Krispy Kreme store, located in Blanchardstown. 

Krispy Kreme’s renowned Hotlight gives you the opportunity to enjoy a freshly made Original Glazed doughnut for a hot hour between 7pm and 8pm every single day. Whenever you see the ‘Hot Now’ sign lit up at a Hotlight concept store, you can experience the magic of a hot Original Glazed doughnut straight off the line.

The staff at Krispy Kreme will let customers know when a fresh batch is available by igniting the neon Hotlight sign. Customers can drive up to the store and wait until the Hotlight is turned on, and then get their scrumptious doughnuts while they’re warm and fresh.

Would you rather wait until you get home to tuck in? Not to worry — for a deliciously hot at-home experience, simply pop your Original Glazed treat in the microwave for eight seconds, and enjoy.

To heat up the occasion, Krispy Kreme will be launching a nationwide search for a super fan, the ‘Hotlight Hero', to turn on the iconic Hotlight sign at the Blanchardstown Hotlight store.

The dozen ‘Hotlight heroes’ from the UK and Ireland will be in for a 1 in 12 chance to win a trip to visit the new Krispy Kreme flagship Hotlight store in Times Square, New York next year as part of its one-year anniversary.

For your chance to be crowned Dublin’s 'Hotlight Hero' tell/show Krispy Kreme why you’re a super-fan on their social channels using #KrispyKremeSuperFan or email your entry to competition@krispykreme.co.uk by midnight, August 27. Good luck!


Brace yourself for a delicious weekend because we have an insider tip for all the foodies out there.

Krispy Kreme is giving away free doughnuts this weekend.

Yes, they are completely free of charge and just as delicious as the kind you pay for.

The spur of the moment giveaway is in honour of Krispy Kreme’s new store opening on September 26th in Blanchardstown.

It seems they want to give the public a preview of their scrumptious treats.

Doughnuts have been all the rage in Dublin, and we can’t think of a tastier trend to get behind.

So, where will they be handing out the free food?

In the city centre of course. Word on the street is Krispy Kreme will open a secret hotlight hatch, according to The Sun.

For three days, Friday, Aug 10th- Sunday, August 12th, the doughnut giveaway will take place on 57 South William St. Their opening hours will be 10am-10pm on Friday and Saturday, and between 10 am and 6 pm on Sunday.

Basically, when the hotlight comes on, get ready for some hot, glazed original doughnuts.

These mouth-watering doughy delights are impossible to say no to. The key is to get them when they’re warm, and you won’t be disappointed.

And if you are a true Krispy fanatic share your doughnut selfie and tag @KrispyKremeIRL and #TheOGisComing.

You will be entered into a draw for the chance to win exclusive entry to the Krispy Kreme VIP opening night in Blanchardstown Centre, according to the store’s spokesperson.

So, when you are out on the town this weekend, make sure you and your friends stop by the hotlight pop-up for some free, melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts.

Happy birthday Offbeat! 



It's no secret that Ireland's love affair with the humble donut has gone from strength to strength over the past few years.

We just can't get enough of the tasty treat, and with new shops popping up all over the city, there's no fear of our fondness dwindling any time soon.

And now, cult donut brand Kripsy Kreme have announced the opening of its first Irish store, and honestly, our mouths are watering already.

Set to open this October, the factory store, located beside Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, will be stocked with 16 varieties of handcrafted donuts, as well as Kreme Shakes, tea and coffee.

Oh, and get this – there'll also be a DRIVE-THROUGH for anyone in need of a little donut-and-dash.

Alex Drysdale, Ireland Country Director, Krispy Kreme, said: "It is with great excitement that we today announce that the OG of donuts, Krispy Kreme Original Glazed, is coming to Ireland this October along with many other delicious flavours for Irish customers to enjoy.

"Our Blanchardstown build is under way and we will soon be announcing recruitment details for our Irish operation.

"We look forward to welcoming all our Irish fans, and those yet to have their first Krispy Kreme experience, through our doors and our drive-thru this October.”

We can not wait for this!

In what can only be described as a feat of food engineering, one innovative bakery in the US have created a combination of sweet treats that you never even knew you needed – until now.

Introducing the ice-cream donut.

The guys and gals over at B Sweet Bar in Los Angeles have blessed the world with their mouth-watering dessert know as the 'Halo'.

According to the shop's official Instagram account, the dish consists of "a scoop of your favourite #icecream heat-sealed inside our fresh glazed donut!!! Hot on the outside, cold on the inside and yummy allover!"

Customers can choose to fill the classic donut with a scoop of their favourite ice-cream, with options of vanilla, mint chocolate chip, cookies and cream, rocky road and chocolate malted crunch to choose from.

B Sweet is also famous for its rotating menu of over 40 different flavours of bread pudding, which honestly looks way more appealing than it sounds.

Alas, these beautiful creations are only available in LA right now, but fingers crossed the recipe will make it onto Irish shores sooner rather than later.


Listen, I love flowers as much as the next person, but they die – and it is sad every time. 

However, you know what won't die? Our love of donuts, that's what.  


We love when you guys send thoughtful, inspirational messages to each other … #dessertboxes

The magical creation comes from Dessert Boxes, who have been major players in the doughnut bouquet game for quite some time now.

The Sydney based company haven't started shipping internationally as of yet,but we are PRAYING that this happens soon.


Flowers? Yeah, nah. #doughnutbouquet#donutbouquet#dessertboxes

They recently had their first proposal order, which we cannot deny, is literally everything we would look for in a marriage proposal. 

However, if proposals are no longer for you, the company also cover birthday boxes, apology bouquets and dessert boxes for special events. 


Donuts for 1? #dessertboxes#donuts

We especially enjoy the way the company include Nutella syringes, tiny vodka bottles and, in some cases, CASH. 

Prices for these amazing gift boxes and bouquets start at $35 AUS, and we are kind of tempted to move to Sydney.

Anyone else?
