In what could be the most amazing food/movie tie-in ever, Krispy Kreme and Sony Pictures have announced a collaboration of giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man-proportions!
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the greatest ghost story in modern history, Krispy Kreme is releasing two special, limited-edition, Dr. Peter Venkman-approved doughnuts.
The doughnuts will be available only from September 29 - October 31, in conjunction with the release of the Ghostbusters 30th anniversary edition Blu-ray.
Greg Economos, senior vice president of Sony Pictures Consumer Products, is excited about the doughnuts, noting that "both brands have an incredible legacy with consumers and with exclusive donuts at Krispy Kreme locations and a retail promotion featuring the Blu-ray offering, we are confident everyone's proton packs will be loaded."
The doughnuts come in two spooky/sweet varieties, each filled with marshmallow kreme, of course.
The Ghostbusters doughnut features a marshmallow Kreme-filled shell, topped with white icing, a decorative green "splat" inspired by Slimer, and a sugar Ghostbusters logo.
The Stay Puft Marshmallow is a marshmallow Kreme-filled shell topped with white icing, decorated with Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's face and a sugar hat.
The special Ghostbusters doughnuts are available at participating Krispy Kreme shops, while supplies last, starting September 29, but starting today, you can pre-order a minimum of five dozen of the Zuul-lovin' pastries at your local Krispy Kreme location. Now, who ya gonna call?
