We tried Dunkin's new ghost pepper donut and (barely) lived to tell the tale

In honor of Halloween, Dunkin’ decided to bless America with a new spicy ghost pepper donut on October 14 — . billed as the “first pepper-packed donut” to be served in the country. The donut has strawberry-flavored icing that is mixed with ghost pepper and cayenne pepper . and then topped with a sanding of red sugar. Actually, it really isn’t that spicy, it’s more like a ~hot~ aftertaste. Mostly it just tastes like a strawberry donut that lightly burns your throat. because this donut is for Halloween, it’s kinda bonkers that they didn’t make it in the shape of a ghost. the spicy ghost pepper donut is available in select locations until December
