Doughnuts are most definitely delicious, though they might not be the best way to start your morning if you’re trying to be conscious of how much sugar and fat you’re putting into your body. But what if they look like a healthy treat?

Just in time for summer, Krispy Kreme has launched a fruit-inspired collection that features three all-new fruit-flavored doughnuts. Sure, they’re not actual fruit, but they all include fruit-flavored filling and are adorably decorated to at least resemble something healthy! Best of all, Krispy Kreme will give you one for free on May 8 with any other purchase.

The flavors include pineapple, strawberry and key lime. According to a press release from Krispy Kreme, pineapple and strawberry both contain a jam-like fruit filling. Key lime features a creamy center “to give you the tartness you crave, balanced with the sweetness of a Krispy Kreme doughnut.”

Krispy Kreme also brought back its lemon glaze doughnut, but that was only around for one week in April. The other three fruit doughnuts will be available until June 16.

How can you get your free doughnut on May 8? Just make sure you sign up to be a Krispy Kreme Rewards member (it’s free!) and you’ll get a free fruit doughnut with any purchase that day. You will also need to download the Krispy Kreme app, as it needs to be scanned at checkout, or you can provide a phone number to redeem the coupon.

When you sign up for Krispy Kreme Rewards, you’ll also get a free doughnut for signing up. You get a free doughnut and small coffee or fountain drink on your birthday as well.

If you don’t have a Krispy Kreme near you, Dunkin’ also has new treats for the summer, including coffee drinks inspired by Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavors. Choose from past favorite butter pecan and new flavors pistachio almond fudge and banana split! That last one sounds seriously perfect for the warm weather season.

You’ll also find a line-up of Cosmic Coolatta drinks and a brand new star-shaped doughnut in honor of the Moon Landing’s 50th anniversary on July 20 at Dunkin’.
