Dunkin’ today celebrated the return of its Halloween menu with the Capital Region YMCA Universal Pre-Kindergarteners (UPK). Local franchisees brought donut decorating kits to the Capital Region BOCES campus where they helped students create their own Spider Donuts, a fan-favorite Halloween menu item returning to Dunkin’ restaurants this week.
Dunkin’s beloved Spider Donut brings a charming twist to the creepy-crawlies – consisting of a yeast donut with orange frosting, topped with a chocolate glazed MUNCHKINS® Donut Hole Treat that mimics a spider, complete with chocolate drizzle for spider legs and white drizzle forming the eyes.
“We are so excited to bring back the holiday favorite for everyone to enjoy,” said Dunkin’ Field Marketing Manager Levi Pascher. “Celebrating spooky season with the local YMCA UPK program and seeing their fun twists on our Spider Donut is especially rewarding.”
The Capital Region YMCA UPK program is offered for full or half-day preschool. Located on the new BOCES Albany Campus, preschoolers have the chance to enjoy field trips to the many programs BOCES offers including culinary arts and dog therapy.
“We feel embraced by the BOCES programs that have enriched the education of our students to get hands on experience and socialization with one another,” said Colleen Munger, Director of the YMCA UPK program. “Now, being able to incorporate Capital Region community partners like Dunkin’ has allowed students to be creative and have some holiday fun with the help of our Early Childhood Education scholars.”
The iconic Spider Donut and Dunkin’s Chocolate & Orange Halloween sprinkle takeover of the classic Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry Frosted donuts are available in bakery cases from now through the end of October. These seasonal treats are the ultimate addition to any party this season, allowing guests to create the ideal mix of sprinkle donuts and Dunkin’s signature Spider Donut to bring to parties and share with family, friends, neighbors, classrooms and more.
