The national donut and coffee chain announced the new donut flavor on Wednesday, describing it as “deliciously daring.”
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, and topped with red sanding sugar.
The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut will only be on the menu at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide until December.
“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,” according to Jill Nelson, Vice President, Marketing Strategy at Dunkin’. “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.”
The Spicy Ghost Pepper donut is available starting Wednesday, October 14.
