Back in the bad old days, if you wanted peanut butter and chocolate and a doughnut, you had to buy them all separately and smoosh them together by hand before cramming the awkward mess into your face.
Let me tell you friends, the bad old days are over.
You’ll be familiar with Reese’s Pieces as the chocolate-and-peanut-butter treats beloved not only of E.T. but of children and adults around the world. You’ll be likewise familiar with Krispy Kreme, the company that makes doughnuts that make other doughnuts taste like hair and ashes by comparison.

Well, they’re together at last. The Reese’s Lovers Original Filled Doughnut is what men have dreamed of for centuries but not dared to deem possible. It’s a doughnut filled with chocolate but also filled with peanut butter, but most of all, it’s filled with love. Love of sweet delights, love of pleasure, love of humanity itself.
In these days of global warming, trade wars and inconsistent football umpiring, there’s very little to feel cheerful about. But the Reese’s Lovers Original Filled Doughnut proves that there is good in the world, and that human beings are still capable of creating great things. Like Renaissance cathedrals, prehistoric cave art and Ballarat’s Kryal Castle, it is testament to the amazing creative power of our species.
Praise be, for it is here at last.
