“Our brand is magnetic and it’s amazing to see the smiles it can bring to people in shared moments of happiness. We have been spreading joy across the nation for half a decade and now we’re ready to sprinkle some in the heart of Limerick.”

Krispy Kreme first came to Ireland in 2018, opening a branch in Blanchardstown, Dublin, which caused a frenzy among doughnut lovers nationwide.

Some of the American chain’s favourites will be on offer in the Limerick store, such as the original glazed doughnut, Lotus Biscoff, and the Nutty Chocolatta, a doughnut filled with chocolate hazelnut spread.

Krispy Kreme was set up in North Carolina in 1937, with 14 stores currently operating across Ireland.
