With spicy flavors trending throughout the fast-food industry as of late, Dunkin Donuts introduces its first-ever spicy donut! This spooky and delicious treat is both innovative and daring, and sure to grab the attention of spicy food lovers throughout the country. The new donut will be available until the end of December throughout all Dunkin restaurants in the US!
What’s in the Dunkin Donuts’ Spicy Treat
The new donut is made using a classic yeast dough. Once properly baked, the donut is covered with a sweet strawberry topping that is infused with cayenne and ghost pepper. Known as one of the spiciest peppers in the world, the ghost pepper’s Scoville score is 1,041,427 SHU. To put that into perspective, it’s 200 times spicier than a jalapeño pepper. Deliciously daring, this donut definitely grabs attention. Dunkin, along with many other fast-food restaurants, often add such interesting and unordinary items to their menus to intrigue and win over customers, as the fast-food business is highly competitive. Luckily for the consumer, this means finding interesting new items such as the spicy donut!
Spicy Is the New Trend
Luckily for all those who love spicy food, a piquant trend has been developing this year. Many fast-food franchises have been adding spicy items to their menus lately. This includes McDonald’s that started selling spicy chicken McNuggets recently, which happens to be the first new nugget flavor they’ve introduced since 1983! Whataburger also added a spicy chicken sandwich, and Del Taco started offering several new menu items featuring Cholula spicy sauce. With Halloween just around the corner, Dunkin Donuts’ rival, Krispy Kreme came out with Halloween donuts that feature some of the classic monsters like Frankenstein’s monster and Dracula. Those who show up in costume can get a free donut, which is certainly fun and worth it for a sweet treat!
These Caramel Apple S’Mores Are Fall All Over
Caramel apple? S’mores? Can life get any more fall-themed? It turns out that we can combine all of our favorite flavors and feel nice and cozy as the nights start to get darker and the evenings start to get colder. These caramel apple s’mores are fall all over, and we love it.
Prepare Your Ingredients
To start, you want to prepare your ingredients. Where else is any great chef supposed to start? You’ll need to grab two Granny Smith apples and make sure they are cored and thinly sliced. Then, ensure you have four squares of chocolate and eight marshmallows. Don’t forget that warm caramel, too.
Toast Your Marshmallows
Now comes the fun bit: toasting your marshmallows. Having a cookout with your friends is one of the best ways to enjoy the cooling fall weather. Why not combine some fun with a delicious new meal? Grab some skewers and hold two marshmallows over the flames at a time until they are nice and toasted.
Build Your S’Mores
Building your caramel apple s’mores is nice and easy. Start by grabbing one slice of apple. Top this with your two toasted marshmallows before adding in a square of melted Hershey’s chocolate. Of course, you don’t want to forget the caramel sauce, so be sure to drizzle that over the top of the sweet stuff. Then, you guessed it, add another apple slice to create your s’more.
Repeat And Enjoy
You can enjoy your caramel apple s’more all while creating the next few for your friends – or you can leave them to it and let them create their own. There should be enough ingredients to make four s’mores, so be sure you have plenty to go around.
Caramel apple s’mores certainly do sound like a great way to welcome fall and the new season. Why not say “goodbye” to summer with one last cookout?
