The Donut is a classic yeast design, topped with a layer of strawberry icing and bits of cayenne and ghost pepper seasoning, then topped with red sugar for that hot look.
“Halloween looks a little different this year, and so do our donuts,” said Jill Nelson, of Dunkin 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.”
