The “Elf” collection showcases a merry variety of donuts. These include the whimsical Buddy Snow Globe donut, the mouthwatering Buddy Makes Breakfast donut, the festive Christmas Lights donut, and the jolly Santa Belly donut.

Meanwhile, if you’ve ever wanted to taste the Christmas flavor of Buddy’s Elf spaghetti, this is your year. HelloFresh brought back its popular Buddy the Elf Spaghetti kit for the holidays.

Krispy Kreme was established by Vernon Rudolph (1915–1973). He purchased a yeast-raised recipe from a talented chef in New Orleans, then rented a building in 1937 in what is now the historic Old Salem in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Initially, Krispy Kreme sold its products to local grocery stores.

Over time, the company experienced steady growth, leading to an ambitious expansion as a public company from 2000 to 2016. Unfortunately, this expansion proved to be unprofitable. In 2016, Krispy Kreme returned to private ownership under JAB Holding Company, a private Luxembourg-based firm. However, in July 2021, Krispy Kreme went public once again and is now traded on the Nasdaq.
