There are a lot of fabulous combinations when it comes to food — cheese and crackers, spaghetti and meatballs, bacon and eggs. But the best edible combo of all time? Peanut butter and chocolate.

And now, that iconic duo is being combined with another treat that is sure to excite you — and your taste buds. Krispy Kreme already has dozens of doughnut flavors from common ones like glazed to more intriguing ones like cake batter, but their newest doughnut? You’re going to have to see it to believe it.

Introducing Krispy Kreme’s new Reese’s Lovers Original Filled Doughnuts! Available at Krispy Kreme shops nationwide now for a limited time, you’ll find two new Reese’s filled doughnuts: original filled peanut butter and original filled chocolate. The filled peanut butter has more peanut butter than chocolate, while the chocolate-filled has more chocolate than peanut butter.

And, if you join Krispy Kreme’s Rewards program and get over there today, you’ll be able to snag one of these new treats for FREE with any purchase. Only available on Aug. 7, this offer limits you to just one free Reese’s Original Filled Doughnut per purchase. If you’re not yet a member, enroll online or simply download the app. You’ll need the Krispy Kreme app to scan the barcode, anyway, although you can also provide a phone number.

Breaking these new doughnuts down further, the Reese’s Original Filled Chocolate Lovers Doughnut is a chocolate glazed doughnut filled with Reese’s Peanut Butter Kreme, dipped in chocolate fudge icing and decorated with Reese’s peanut butter icing drizzle. The Reese’s Original Filled Peanut Butter Lovers Doughnut is a chocolate glazed doughnut filled with Chocolate Peanut Butter Kreme, dipped in Reese’s peanut butter icing and decorated with a chocolate icing drizzle.

“Our latest co-creation with Reese’s is our best yet,” Dave Skena, chief marketing officer for Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation, said in a press release. “If the technology exists to fill a Krispy Kreme doughnut with Reese’s Peanut Butter Kreme and Chocolate Kreme, then how could we not offer that to America? Well, it does. So we are. And it’s amazing.”

You can buy these deliciously deep-fried treats singly or by the dozen to take home, as with all doughnuts. But Krispy Kreme is also offering them in a special two-pack (just like the packages Reese’s candies come in) so you can try one of each.

These new doughnuts follow the release of creme-filled glazed doughnuts from Krispy Kreme just a few months ago, available in both chocolate and vanilla. While these doughnuts were in honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, they are a permanent addition to the doughnut shop’s menu.
