Dunkin' Announces New Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut 

I'd never thought I would see the day that a spicy donut would be sold. Dunkin' has recently announced a spicy donut for the Halloween season.

In the spirit of Halloween, Dunkin' released a new Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut. It's topped with spicy ghost pepper strawberry icing. I'm not into spicy foods like that, but I'll try this just to say I did it. It seems interesting! A spicy donut?? How can I pass that up?

The ghost pepper is actually a really hot pepper. If the name doesn't scare you, how about the fact that a ghost pepper is 200 times hotter than a jalapeno pepper. Who would think to pair this hot pepper with donuts?! At first glance, I figured it would be trash, but the more I think about it, the more I want to try one for myself.

Dunkin' posted the donut on their Instagram page with the caption "🔥 A donut… but make it SPICY!🔥 Introducing the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut ft. strawberry flavored icing with cayenne & ghost pepper for a sweet heat treat at Dunkin’. 👻 🌶️ Grab one & show your spicy side. 🔥🍩" Maybe they're pulling me in with the "Everyone has a spicy side" phrase.

 

The new spicy donut is on sale now at stores and I'm pretty sure I'll try one by the end of the week. Hit me up on Instagram to see how it goes @BigDawgDreDay. I got nothing to lose by trying it, but everything to gain because it just might taste good. What do you think?
