Some Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, McDonald’s restaurants are now selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts in a limited test run designed to see whether there is customer demand for the idea.

People who frequent McDonald’s restaurants in Louisville, Kentucky, will be able to purchase Krispy Kreme doughnuts there in a trial program, McDonald’s announced in a news release.

In February, McDonald’s announced that it was expanding the market test and bringing the doughnuts to local McDonald’s starting on March 21.

The Krispy Kreme doughnuts available in Louisville are the Original Glazed Doughnut, the Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles Doughnut and the Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled Doughnut, according to the release.

The doughnuts will be available at 160 McDonald’s in Louisville, Lexinvton and other areas.

“The expanded test will help us learn more about operational impact on a larger scale as well as explore customer demand,” McDonald’s wrote.

“They’ll only be here for a limited time, while supplies last,” McDonald’s wrote.

Last fall, McDonald’s tried the doughnuts out in just nine restaurants in Louisville to see if customers would be interested in them. Customers could order individual doughnuts or six packs, and they were “delivered fresh daily to restaurants,” McDonald’s said in a press release.

“McDonald’s is always looking for ways to give our fans more of what they crave, and we often conduct tests to inform future menu decisions. This small-scale test will help us understand how offering new bakery items like Krispy Kreme could impact operations in our restaurants,” McDonald’s wrote at that time.
