The State of Origin is back in its regularly scheduled June timeslot this year and there are only a few days left until the series kicks off.
If you’re hosting a watch party or heading to the game itself, you’re probably already thinking about what to eat. Well, the good news is Krispy Kreme has the perfect dessert for this year’s State of Origin.
Support your state with a doughnut
Krispy Kreme is quite the master at creating themed doughnuts. Every year the company releases epic Easter, Christmas and Halloween themed doughnuts and it’s done some epic collaborations with the likes of Nutella and Cadbury.
Now, Krispy Kreme is entering the game with sports-themed doughnuts, just in time for one of the most epic rivalries in Australia.
That’s right, there are now QLD and NSW themed Krispy Kreme doughnuts so you can show support for your team with your snack.
The NSW doughnut is original glazed with blue icing and white icing drizzle. The QLD doughnut, on the other hand, is an original glazed topped with maroon icing and caramel truffle drizzle.
No matter which team you support, no one would blame you for biting into both of these babies.
