Halloween Food: Create the next Donut for Dunkin Donuts Contest!
All that said: the doughnuts at Dunkin Donuts... have always been an afterthought to me.
Sure I'd probably buy one to go with my coffee, but I was really there for the coffee. I think part of the reason is that there isn't a signature DD doughnut (donut? doughnut?) that I crave or NEED to seek out.
What am I getting at dear readers? Well Dunkin Donuts is having a CREATE DUNKIN'S NEXT DONUT CONTEST.
In the vein of a Mountain Dew "Dewmocracy" social-media-marketing experiment (of which I am willingly participating) and to celebrate 60 years of doughnut-making they asked the masses to design doughnuts, culled those down from 90,000 entries to a scant 12 finalists and now allow the rest of us to vote on what the next donut will be.
Why would I mention such a thing on HalloweenAddict.com?
Well it seems the good people of Hardwick, Massachusetts and Orlando, Florida LOVE their Halloween because they have submitted two well-named, deliciously-designed entries: the "Pumpkin to Pie-n For" and the "Snack-o-Lantern."
As a fan of Massachusetts, Halloween and clever names my choice is a no-brainer: The Snack-o-Lantern.
(Side note: the only thing that would make the Snack-o-Lantern better were if the icing were orange.)
If Snack-o-Lantern won, I would make specific travel plans to fly in, buy my cup of coffee and proclaim loudly and proudly that I would also like a Snack-o-Lantern with that.
So c'mon fellow Halloween Addicts... let's get a Halloween-themed doughnut mass produced!
