Krispy Kreme’s digital business manager, Russell Schulman, said that while not all consumers will be salivating over their iPhone screen, the novel new ‘virtual doughnuts’ do promise to be fun and engaging for everyone.
“Our new lickable ads give fans the opportunity to virtually lick the toppings off their favourite “Decadent Desserts” doughnut, whilst racing against the clock to produce the fastest ‘lick time’ and challenging friends to beat their score by sharing their results through social channels.”
“We’re excited to spread the joy of Krispy Kreme in a way that is innovative, entertaining and fun. Obviously we understand that not everyone will choose to lick their phone, and to those people, we say – why not head in-store and try the real thing instead!”
The Decadent Desserts range is available in store for a limited time only.
