Dunkin’s new Halloween donut is already getting turned into a prank
For all of you spicy food lovers out there, there's a new spicy challenge for you to attempt. Dunkin' is cranking up the heat with its new Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut.
The strawberry-iced donut is unsuspecting at first. However, it truly packs a punch with its sprinkles of ghost pepper and cayenne.
Of course, there is only one person who can truly put the donut's spice level to the test. Dunkin' called in Hot Ones host Sean Evans to give the new treat a taste before anyone else.
The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is a late addition to Dunkin's Halloween menu. The special treat will be available at participating locations nationwide until December. For those bold enough to try the donut or trick their friends into eating one, Dunkin' wants you to share the reactions using the tag #DunkinSpicySide.
“Halloween looks a little different this year, and so do our donuts," Jill Nelson, Vice President, Marketing Strategy at Dunkin’ says. "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."
As expected, others are stepping up to the challenge and trying the donuts themselves or pranking their friends. Clearly, Dunkin's Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is the new Halloween 2020 prank we can't escape.
