BuzzFeed News confirmed that Krispy Kreme UK is launching a "hole in the wall pop-up" at a London location.

The machine will dispense doughnuts into the customer's hand after they select their doughnut.

According to BuzzFeed News, the sweet treat will arrive out of a doughnut-shaped hatch after the customer follows instructions for payment.

BuzzFeed News reported that a new limited edition doughnut filled with Nutella called Nutty Chocolatta will be available for purchase from the machine for £2, or about $2.90 until May 21.

The Telegraph reported that the machine will give customers a chance to taste the new doughnut before it goes on sale.

News of the doughnut first emerged when an email to store managers about the machine was posted to Twitter.

The machine will be open from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.

The Nutty Chocolatta doughnut will be at all UK Krispy Kreme stores for a limited time May 27 - Sept. 4.

Proceeds from the Krispy Kreme automated machine will all go to Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity dedicated to getting teens cancer treatment.
