Dunkin' is also encouraging fans to show their own spicy side by surprising their friends with the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut and capturing and posting the reactions on social media using #DunkinSpicySide.
Dunkin' also is offering Halloween DIY Dunkin' Donut Decorating Kits consisting of plain yeast or cake donuts, with pre-packaged icing in orange, white, and black varieties, along with three sprinkle blends. The Halloween DIY Dunkin' Donut Decorating Kits are available for purchase in two sizes, small (4-count donuts) and large (9-count donuts).
Dunkin’s “frightfully delicious” Spider Donut also has returned to the chain’s menu for a limited time, the release said.
Pat Gilligan, president and CEO of Dunkin’s southwest Ohio franchisee, Gilligan Company LLC, has resuscitated the brand formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts in the Dayton-area market in recent years. Dunkin' Donuts' footprint in the Miami Valley had shrunk to just one store in Miami Twp. that was (and still is) co-branded with Baskin Robbins Ice Cream and remains under separate franchise ownership.
Since Gilligan became a franchisee in 2013, new Dunkin' shops have opened in Kettering, Centerville, Sugarcreek Twp., Fairborn, Washington Twp., Springfield, Riverside, and most recently, Dayton and Beavercreek.
