Dunkin' Is Selling DIY Donut Decorating Kits During Pandemic


Move over cookie decorating kits, we’re decorating Dunkin’ donuts!

The chain recently launched a new DIY kit that allows you to customize your donuts while in quarantine.

Customers can purchase one of two decorating kits -- a four-doughnut kit for $5.99 or a nine-doughnut version for $9.99.

Inside the kit you’ll find plain doughnuts, three frosting options (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), and a variety of sprinkles.

Not all Dunkin’ locations will be selling the crafty and edible kits. A spokesperson for the chain suggested calling and checking to see if your location has any available ahead of time.

Norma Valkenaar, an employee at a Dunkin’ location in Concord, California, is the mastermind behind the kits since she asked her boss to take home some plain doughnuts and toppings for her nephews, according to “Today.”

Her boss and the franchise owner, Matt Cobo, pitched the idea to Dunkin’ execs and well, the rest is history.

Dunkin’ has seen massive success with the kits.

“The first day we did it, we had cars lined up at our drive-thru for 45 minutes,” Adam Goldman, a Dunkin' franchise owner in West Orange, New Jersey, told the publication. He believes the success hinges on “parents are looking for something different to do with their children.”

He noted they sold 1,200 DIY boxes in three weeks.

While you’re picking up your Dunkin’ kits, don’t forget to pick up free donuts on Friday and $2 iced coffee on Monday through the month of May.

Dunkin’s sister brand, Baskin-Robbins, is also getting into the DIY-game and offering sundae kits for “Sundae Funday.”

The DIY kits go for $24.99 and come with two quarts of your favorite ice cream flavors, whipped cream, cherries, your choice of toppings, and five sundae cups and spoons, so you can share with the whole family.
