Krispy Kreme drops Halloween donuts inspired by slime, vampires, more
The “Monster Batch” donuts are "deliciously mischievous treats” that have the most perfect designs for the spooky season, according to a press release.
There are three donuts that the chain has named Slimon, Mumford and Hypno-Henry, and they all have one eyeball decoration on them. Slimon is an original glazed donut with lemon slime filling that’ covered in green icing to resemble slime.
Mumford is an original glazed donut that’s “wrapped” in purple icing to resemble a vampire/mummy, which is also showcased through the donut’s fang decoration. Hypno-Henry is filled with cake batter and dripped in yellow icing and orange sanding sugar. This donut has a hypnotizing swirl that will grab you in if you’re not careful enough.
The donuts are available from Monday until Oct. 13 at Krispy Kreme locations. You can find out more here and see pictures of the three flavors below.

The “Trick Or Treat” ice cream is “Boo Batter” ice cream mixed with M&Ms, chunks of Oreo cookies with orange cream and pieces of Kit Kats. The best part is that its pitch-black, so not only is it delicious, but spooky too.The company announced the limited-time-only ice cream with a mouth-watering social media post. You can see it below.
If you’re unfamiliar with Cold Stone, they combine the ice cream and the mix-ins by folding them together on a granite surface with two metal spades, so it’s extremely delicious. You can get the spooky scoop served in cones, bols or in a black or orange waffle bowl or cone to be even more festive.
If you’re wondering what “Boo Batter” is, it sounds like it’s essentially the company’s typical cake batter flavor turned black, which we can definitely get down with. Therefore, we should all treat ourselves to some ice cream and try this new flavor before it’s gone.
The flavor of the month for the store will be the Candy Mashup, which is pretty appropriate since trick-or-treat is all we have on our minds.
The flavor is complete with Snickers, caramel cup pieces and salty caramel. If you want to make it even better, you can indulge in the chain’s Friday Night Scoop sundae. It’s a scoop of the Candy Mashup ice cream topped with Halloween sprinkles. Also, there’s a creepy white chocolate zombie hand sticking right out of the top.
Also on the menu are the Halloween-inspired cakes that start at $12.99. First up is the Ghost Cake, which is full of chocolate, buttercream ghosts, Kit Kats, Reese’s and Halloween sprinkles. Some locations are selling a Piñata Ghost Cake. That actually has sprinkles pouring out of it once you cut a slice.
Also, don’t miss the Spider Web Cookie Cake that is covered in fudge and marshmallow that’s a devilishly delicious treat.
“October is all about being creative and getting into the Halloween spirit, and our fun and festive lineup this month reflects that attitude,” Jason Maceda, the Senior Vice President of Baskin-Robbins U.S. and Canada, said in a statement. “We’ve released some fantastic treats like the Fright Night Scoop, the Ghost Cake and the Spider Web Cookie Cake to help Halloween fanatics and ice cream lovers take in all of those ghostly good feels, and our Candy Mashup Flavor of the Month combines guests’ favorite candy flavors into one treat that’s perfect for a Halloween party.”
