Krispy Kreme debuted filled doughnuts Monday, the chain’s first time offering stuffed glazed doughnuts at U.S. stores.

The new doughnuts, which are now a part of Krispy Kreme’s permanent menu, feature an Original Glazed doughnut with a tunnel of either white Classic Kreme or Chocolate Kreme.

Participating Krispy Kreme locations will hand out free filled doughnuts to customers this Saturday.

In the past, the company has sold filled doughnuts in other counties, including a Nutella-stuffed version in the Dominican Republic.

The Winston-Salem, N.C.-based brand has nearly 1,400 retail shops in 33 countries. The company recently announced plans to build a 4,500-square-foot flagship store in New York City’s Times Square next year.
