Dunkin’ Unveils Hot, Spicy Doughnut

Just in time for Halloween, Dunkin’ has unveiled a new doughnut flavor that could very well come back to haunt people who eat it.

The “Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut,” at its base, is an ordinary doughnut topped with strawberry-flavored icing. But mixed into the icing is a blend of cayenne and ghost pepper, a release from the chain reads. According to the company, the new offering “may look sweet … but expect some heat with each bite.”

The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is available now through December, Dunkin’ officials say.

Does this sound good or disgusting to you? What’s the weirdest doughnut flavor you’ve tried?
