Today, September 14, is National Cream-Filled Donut Day! From Boston Kreme to Bavarian Kreme, Vanilla Kreme, Chocolate Kreme, and more, Dunkin’ Donuts has been delighting guests with delicious cream-filled donuts for decades. In fact, our very own Manager of Donut Excellence, Rick Golden, still remembers when he learned to make Bavarian Crème Donuts by hand in 1976!
Although we love DD’s full spread of cream-filled donuts, today we are shining a spotlight on the widely-loved Boston Kreme donut. One of Dunkin’ Donuts’ top-selling donuts, the Boston Kreme has a colorful and DDelicious history. Here are a few ‘sweet’ facts that DD fans might not know about their favorite donut:
• In 2003, the Boston Kreme became the official donut of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Senate and House of Representatives.
• Despite its local-sounding name, the Boston Kreme donut is very well-traveled! Dunkin’ Donuts sells the Boston Kreme donut in 32 countries worldwide.
• Participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants have also sold Boston Kreme Munchkins and Boston Kreme Muffins!
• Each year for Halloween, the Boston Kreme Donut gets a festive drizzle of orange icing and becomes the Boston Scream Donut.
Whether you opt for a Boston Kreme donut or one of Dunkin’ Donuts’ other tempting cream-filled donuts, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating National Cream-Filled Donut Day! Oh, and if you do celebrate, we’d love for you to send pics of your DDelightful cream-filled donuts to us on Facebook and Twitter!
