Never Thought We'd See the Day When Dunkin' Released a Spicy Doughnut, but Here We Are

We never really thought we'd use the phrase "spicy doughnut," but alas, here we are. As part of its Halloween range, Dunkin' Donuts recently unveiled a clever, new Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut. The limited-edition menu item consists of a classic doughnut topped with red sugar and a strawberry icing that features a hint of cayenne and ghost pepper, which, if you've watched enough episodes of Hot Ones, you'll know is one of the hottest chili peppers out there.

"Halloween looks a little different this year, and so do our donuts," Marketing Strategy VP Jill Nelson said in a press release. "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." Think you'll give this spicy snack a shot? You have until December before it leaves Dunkin'. See photos ahead.
