The Story Behind Our Returning Spider Donut

The Story Behind Our Returning Spider Donut

Just in time for Halloween, along comes the Spider Donut, ready for you to dig in if you dare! This deliciously creepy-crawly treat is back in stores nationwide to fright and delight.

One of our most popular Halloween creations, the Spider Donut is frosted with orange icing and topped with a hair-raising eight-legged donut creature, made from a glazed chocolate MUNCHKINS® donut hole treat in the center, with chocolate drizzle spider legs and two white drizzle dots for eyes.

Spider Donut

Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year, and our culinary team had a wicked good time coming up with the frighteningly festive Spider Donut. We tried different flavor and color combinations, incorporating classic Halloween colors and themes to make the most boo-tiful (and tasty) design. It’s sure to bring smiles to your Halloween gatherings, or can be enjoyed as a sweet reward for all the effort you put into Halloween.

Care to double the scare? Pair the Spider Donut with an Iced Peanut Butter Cup Macchiato to experience a dangerously delicious duo. And for those who find the Spider Donut a little too much for their arachnophobia, try our Dunk-o-Lantern donut- classic pumpkin-shaped donut shell filled with butter crème filling, topped with orange icing and a classic Jack-o'-lantern grin.

Want even more ways to get into the Halloween spirit at Dunkin’? Just when you thought it couldn’t get more spider-ific, check out our spooky, glow-in-the-dark Halloween Tumblers! Our cups (or cauldrons!) runneth over with three designs:

  • The I’m spooky before my Dunkin’” Tumbler in yellow, sporting a spider descending from its web
  • The purple “Dunkin’ is my boo” Tumbler with two ghosts
  • The black Tumbler, inspired by the film Hocus Pocus, featuring “Hocus Pocus, I need my Dunkin’ to focus”

All of our Halloween donuts and tumblers will haunt participating Dunkin’ restaurants for a limited time, and then, like ghosts, they’ll vanish. Be sure to stop in your local Dunkin’ this month and get your spook on!
