The press release whets your appetite, “Sure to make ghosts, goblins, and guests shriek with delight, the world’s favorite flavor combo of chocolate and peanut butter is now available in the eerily delicious Dunkin’ Peanut Butter Cup Macchiato at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide. The creamy and chocolatey flavors of Halloween’s favorite candy, the Peanut Butter Cup, paired with layers of bone-chillingly bold Dunkin’ espresso, make for a frightfully enchanted new brew.”

And that’s not all. Read on for more Halloween treats this month…

“Trick-or-treaters can win petrifyingly impressive prizes Wednesday, October 13 through Halloween from the comfort of their own phone, once per day, anytime and anywhere. Dunkin’ has created an augmented reality door at, where fans can hold up their mobile device in their space and “ring the bell.” Once the virtual door opens through their screen, they could instantly win $1,000 or a Dunkin’ eGift Card to use towards trying a Dunkin’ Peanut Butter Cup Macchiato or Spider Donut.

“The sweet-not-scary Spider Donut is returning to Dunkin’s Halloween spread. A yeast donut frosted with orange icing and topped with a glazed chocolate MUNCHKINS® donut hole treat resembles a fa-boo-lous spider, with chocolate drizzle for the spider legs and orange drizzle for the eyes. The rest of Dunkin’s donuts will be haunting the menu from midnight to morning, dressed up in the colors of the season and decorated with orange icing drizzles and sprinkles. All Halloween donuts are now available at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide through Halloween.”

“Halloween is always a fearfully fun holiday at Dunkin’. This year we are going all-in for the occasion, celebrating our Halloween enthusiasts with not only the sweetest new Peanut Butter Cup Macchiato, but also a special scary sweepstakes offering up to $1K per day through a virtual trick-or-treating experience,” said Anh-Dao Kefor, Director of Integrated Marketing at Dunkin’.

The Halloween DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kits are available for purchase in two sizes, small (4-count donuts) and large (9-count donuts), while supplies last.”
