(RNN) - First, chocolate met peanut butter and an instant classic was born.

Starting Friday, and sadly for a limited time only, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup meets Krispy Kreme to create a puffed pastry combo for the ages: The Reese's Peanut Butter Doughnut.

According to Krispy Kreme, it's a glazed doughnut filled with peanut butter cream, dipped in milk chocolate icing, topped with a sprinkling of a blend of peanuts and Reese's mini chips, and finished with a drizzle of chocolate and peanut butter.


“Similar to our hot, fresh doughnuts, the matchmaking of chocolate and peanut butter is a delicious combination that consumers have enjoyed for generations,” Chief Marketing Officer Jackie Woodward said in a statement.  

The doughnut premiered in Australia in 2016. Now it's our turn. Could this merger bring about a craze to rival that of the Cronut? Time will tell.
