Krispy Kreme and Reese’s—two beloved names in American treats—are combining their skill with sugar to create a doughnut together.

The new Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut will emerge from fryers and land behind Krispy Kreme counters in the U.S. beginning on Friday. The doughnut doesn’t skimp on either flavor: it’s first filled with Reese’s peanut butter cream, then dipped in chocolate icing, then sprinkled with both peanut butter chips and peanut pieces, and finally covered in both peanut butter and chocolate drizzles.

“In partnering with The Hershey Company, we’re satisfying an intense desire that Krispy Kreme and Reese’s fans never knew they had,” Krispy Kreme Chief Marketing Officer Jackie Woodward said in a statement, according to Food & Wine.

Krispy Kreme first released a Reese’s doughnut in Australia a year ago, leading some to ask when the chain would grace U.S. land with the same blessing. Now that it’s here, it will only be available for a limited time at participating locations, Krispy Kreme said.
