CANTON, MA (KTRK) -- Dunkin' Donuts had such great success with its Croissant Donut that they have decided to add it to the bakery's lineup permanently.

The donut was introduced in November for a limited-time only menu item, and quickly became one of the most popular items in Dunkin' Donuts history. Since its debut less than four months ago, the stores have sold 8.5 million Croissant Donuts.

If you haven't tried it, the Croissant Donut is a flaky croissant ring glazed like a donut.

Because of the popularity, Dunkin Donuts has decided to experiment with even more Croissant Donut flavors. Beginning this March, a Boston Kreme Croissant Donut, a Croissant Donut filled with Bavarian Kreme and drizzled with chocolate icing, will be available in New Jersey.

"The Croissant Donut platform will allow us to bring even more new and exciting flavor options to our fans. I look forward to seeing what our Culinary Team comes up with," said John Costello, President, Global Marketing and Innovation for Dunkin' Brands.

Us too, John!
