Just when you thought the food industry ran out of ideas for spicy fare, today Dunkin’ introduced its Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut, just in time for Halloween.
The limited-edition doughy treat features strawberry-flavored icing with cayenne and ghost pepper for a sweet heat indulgence.
As peculiar as it sounds, the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut blends both tantalizing tastebud sensations into one mouth-watering flavor.
“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,” said Jill Nelson, vice president of marketing strategy at Dunkin, in a press release.
The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is available today until December at participating Dunkin’ eateries nationwide.
