Dunkin DIY Donut Kits Are Now Available And They Include Different Frostings And Sprinkles
Dunkin’ is back at making our biggest foodie dreams come true once again. Not too long ago, they introduced the Snackin’ Bacon, allowing us to enjoy the breakfast staple at any time of the day. Now, they’re finally making it possible for us to decorate our own donuts with the new Dunkin’ DIY donut kits. Obviously, this is going to be a fun activity that kids and even kids at heart will look forward to!
In a press release, Dunkin’ revealed that franchisee Matt Cobo got the idea from one of his employees. Norma Valkenaar, an employee at the Concord store, asked Cobo if she could bring home some donuts for her nephews. But instead of asking for ready-made ones, she asked if she could take home some sprinkles and frosting too—separately. After receiving positive feedback from Valkenaar’s nephews and friends, Cobo thought the kits would make a great new product offering.
Soon enough, his Walnut Creek and Concord stores started offering the kits. Each kit consists of plain donut rings, different frosting flavors and a variety of sprinkles. In the same press release, Cobo also mentioned that the kits are their “way of trying to brighten someone’s day.”
“The simple joy of getting to create your own donut can make kids light up, and if we can be a part of creating that moment, that makes us happy.”
Even Cobo’s sister joined the “donut dash surprise” movement by dropping off kits at their family and friends’ doorsteps and leaving them with a “You’ve been Dunk’d!” message. Cobo also encouraged the crew members at his stores to do the same to spread some joy during these times.
“The reality of this experience has set in, and we know it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Like most parents, we were looking for ways to entertain our kids and bring a little levity to this situation.”
According to Dunkin, several franchises across the country have also followed Cobo’s efforts. However, do note that the kit inclusions may vary per location. There’s a location that offers a four-donut option and a nine-donut option. The four-donut option includes chocolate frosting, strawberry frosting, vanilla frosting and two varieties of sprinkles. Meanwhile, the nine-donut option includes the same three frosting flavors as well as three varieties of sprinkles.
