CHARLOTTE, N.C.--()--As doughnut lovers continue to enjoy the return of Krispy Kreme® “Fan Favs,” the brand is expanding its “C-Sweet,” accepting applications for the new role of “Chief Doughnut Dreamer.”

Krispy Kreme plans to make the new doughnut flavor available to fans and will also give the Chief Doughnut Dreamer a free year of doughnuts.​

“Our fans know Krispy Kreme loves making new, delicious doughnut creations, often through unexpected brand collaborations, but this might be our greatest collab yet,” said Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme. “Our fans are constantly sharing ideas for new flavors, so we’re expanding our ‘C-Sweet’ by naming one of them our Chief Doughnut Dreamer! We hope they’ll come create Krispy Kreme’s next Fan Fav with unprecedented access to our Innovation Kitchen to make their doughnut dreams real.”

To apply, Krispy Kreme fans should share a video on Instagram or Twitter that demonstrates they have what it takes to become Chief Doughnut Dreamer, using #ChiefDoughnutDreamer and #Contest.
