Whenever I would miss the bus in middle school through high school (which was all the time), my dad would take my brother and I to Krispy Kreme on the way to school. I especially loved getting Krispy Kreme's chocolate glazed doughnuts, while my brother went for the plain glaze. My point is, everyone has their preferences, and Krispy Kreme knows that. That's why they're giving customers the chance to vote for their next flavor.

Yep, they're putting the power in the hands of the people. How democratic of them. From Jan. 18 - 22, fans can go to voteforglaze.com and choose one of four doughnuts for the doughnut chain to bring to stores. The candidates includes blueberry, maple, lemon, or caramel. You can vote once each day and even campaign for your no. 1 by using #VoteForGlaze and tagging @KrispKreme on social media.

My money is on maple. Honestly, I'm surprised they don't already have a maple-flavored doughnut. But consider the options. Close your eyes and imagine each bite of each flavor if you have to, and choose your favorite. And seriously, just think of how good a maple doughnut glaze would be. 

According to Food & Wine, Krispy Kreme will bring the winning flavor for a week to participating stores in the US this spring. So really, this is your future we're talking about. 

For real though, all of Krispy Kreme's doughnuts are slightly magical, so whichever flavor you choose will be great. And if it's not, well, it's just a doughnut. Calm down.
