Dunkin’ Donuts Halloween cups come in three shades

This Halloween season, Dunkin’ Donuts have released a range of spooky-themed tumbler cups for your Dunkin’ drink of choice.

They have three colours which feature a seasonal slogan and design to usher in October. The purple cup reads ‘Dunkin’ is my boo’ with a ghost illustration. The orange cup reads ‘I’m spooky before my Dunkin’ with a spider design.

Finally, they have one inspired by the Hocus Pocus films which reads ‘Hocus Pocus, I need Dunkin’ to focus’. This actually made its ways to shelves last Halloween, coming in two colours: pink and orange. The tumbler cups were available at participating Dunkin’ stores while supplies lasted, although now appear to be hitting shelves across the nation.

The cups created for Halloween 2022 also glow in the dark for an extra spooky twist.

In the spirit of Halloween, Dunkin’ embraces all things sugar with their Halloween donuts. The signature spider donut returns to stores, as well as mummy donuts, vampires, and other ghoulish creatures.

They’ve also introduced a special Blood Orange Refresher this month to get suitably spooky.

Dunkin’ Donuts always get into the ‘spirit of Halloween’

TikTok user @astropunk92 reposts old festive commercials from decades past. They sourced a number of Dunkin’ Donuts Halloween commercials from the ’90s which shows the coffee brand has always been big on the holiday.

They managed to find vintage Halloween-themed commercials from 1992, 1995, and 1997. Check out the Dunkin’ advert from ’95 above and from ’97 below to get into the spooky mood:
