Dunkin’ Donuts Adds New Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Dunkin’ Donuts added a new spicy ghost pepper donut to the menu just in time for Halloween! So if you’ve been looking for something sweet and a little spicy, Dunkin’s got you covered. Everyone’s favorite donut chain is serving it up with their new spicy ghost pepper donut. The surprising treat is made from a classic yeast donut ring topped with strawberry-flavored icing that is infused with a blend of cayenne and ghost pepper and finished with red sanding sugar.

“Halloween looks a little different this year, and so do our donuts. 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,” Jill Nelson, Vice President of Marketing Strategy at Dunkin’, said in a press release. With our scary-good lineup of the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut, Halloween DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kits and fan-favorite Spider Donut, Dunkin’ is here to help our guests keep their Halloween spirit alive this season.”

Along with the scary-hot ghost pepper donut, the fan-favorite spider donut is returning! The spider donut is a classic ring donut topped with a chocolate glazed Munchkin and decorated to look like a spider. Also, a Halloween DIY Donut Decorating Kit will be available for those who want to decorate donuts rather than pumpkins (honestly, who doesn’t want this?). The kit includes your choice of plain or old fashioned donuts with pre-packaged icing and sprinkles in seasonal colors so you can make your own creations! The kit and spider donuts will be available while supplies last, and the ghost pepper donut will be around for a limited time at participating locations nationwide until December.
