Dunkin’ Shows its Spicy, Ghostly Side


Dunkin’ said it has baked up one of the most surprising sweet treats ever to rise from its kitchens — the new Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut.

Delivering heat with every bite, the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is a yeast donut ring topped with a strawberry-flavored icing that features a bold blend of cayenne and ghost pepper. It’s finished with red sanding sugar for a sizzling look. The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut will be available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide until December.

“Halloween looks a little different this year, and so do our donuts,” said Jill Nelson, vice president of marketing strategy at Dunkin’. “While our classic bakery offering has plenty of crave-worthy treats, we’re excited to show our spicy side with a donut that packs a touch of heat with something sweet and can be enjoyed any time of day.”
