The Story Behind Dunkin’ Munchkins® Donut Hole Treats

The Story Behind Dunkin’ Munchkins® Donut Hole Treats

Little treat, big impact! Our beloved Dunkin’ MUNCHKINS® Donut Hole Treats made their debut in the early 1970’s, and they’ve been a fan favorite ever since. In fact, we sell more than eight hundred million of these delectable, pop-able donut treats each year!

Originally created as a way to make use of the excess dough cut out of the centers of our donuts, people have been enjoying MUNCHKINS® with their Dunkin’ runs for 50 years. After their initial introduction to our menu, we developed a special cutting tool specifically for our MUNCHKINS®, to make sure we are able to use every delicious bite possible from our donuts. Approximately 5 cake MUNCHKINS® equal one cake donut, and a little under 5 yeast MUNCHKINS® equate to one yeast donut. But we’re not counting!

Available in quantities of 3, 5, 10, 25 or 50, Dunkin’ MUNCHKINS® are the perfect treat to enjoy with your morning coffee, or as a midday pick-me-up! Flavor options include Glazed Old Fashioned, Glazed Chocolate, Old Fashioned, Jelly, Cinnamon, and Powdered. Go all in on your favorite flavor, or choose your own adventure with a variety pack that will satisfy all tastes. For a limited time, enjoy a seasonal favorite like the returning Pumpkin Munchkin!

No matter what time of day it is, or whether you enjoy your coffee hot or iced, MUNCHKINS® are the perfect way to treat yourself! Order a couple (or a box) today!
