Last week, the doughnut chain celebrated the planned Artemis 1 moon launch with the "Artemis Moon Doughnut," a cheesecake cream-flavored filled doughnut dipped in cookies ‘n’ cream icing with a swirl of cookie pieces. Its top was made to look similar to the moon’s surface.
It also created limited-edition doggie doughnuts in honor of National Dog Day last month, as well as announced the early arrival of seasonal pumpkin-spiced flavored favorites.
