The State of Origin is back in its regularly scheduled June timeslot this year and sports fans are gearing up for a memorable battle.
If you’re hosting a watch party or heading to the game itself, you’re probably already thinking about what to eat (Pizza Hut has blue and maroon sauces if you’re into that kind of thing). 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.
You may have seen these babies floating around last year, but if you missed out, here’s your chance to dig in – no matter which team you support.
