This February, 7000 brave sportspeople will compete in a grueling athletic competition. No, not the Olympics; it’s the Krispy Kreme Challenge in North Carolina. A 5-mile race through downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, the Krispy Kreme Challenge dares runners to eat a dozen doughnuts while running the entire race, all in an hour or less.
As if you didn’t already have to keep an eye on your eating habits during the holidays, one of the biggest names in doughnuts is rolling out a one-day-only holiday-themed binge fest. Krispy Kreme has announced that on Tuesday, December 12—and only Tuesday, December 12—the chain will be offering a brand new Gingerbread Glazed Doughnut in honor of National Gingerbread House Day.
