Dunkin’: Celebrate the Oreo’s 100th birthday with an Oreo donut
In a marriage seemingly made in uber-chef heaven, Dunkin’ Donuts said it is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Oreo cookie by infusing Oreo DNA into some of Dunkin’s cold beverages and baked goods.
Not to be outdone, Dunkin’s sister chain, Baskin-Robbins, will also use the Oreo as an inspiration for some seasonal ice cream-and-cake offerings.
At participating Dunkin’s stores, customers will be able to order the Oreo Donut. The Canton-based coffee-and-baked-goods chain describes this menu item as a “yeast donut, filled with vanilla buttercreme, frosted in white icing, and topped with Oreo cookie crumble.”
A true devotee can wash down this donut with an Oreo Coolatta, a beverage available in coffee and vanilla-bean flavors.
Meanwhile, at Baskin-Robbins, Oreo ‘N Chocolate is the July flavor of the month. This flavor is made with “chocolate ice cream and Oreo cookie pieces swirled with a crispy fudge crackle ribbon.”
Oreo is a registered trademark of Kraft Foods, and Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins have a licensing agreement with Kraft for their Oreo promotions.Chris Reidy can be reached at email@example.com.
