In celebration of the arrival of the Royal baby boy, Dunkin' Donuts released special donuts to commemorate the event. The new doughnuts are called the "Royal Munchkin."
The son of Kate Middleton and Prince William is being celebrated across Dunkin' Donuts stores in the US with the new treat. Stores saying "It's a Boy" are also hung in stores. The Royal Munchkin is dipped in pink, blue and white sprinkles representing traditional new baby colors. The Royal Munchkin will be available in a variety of quantities, including 25-count or 50-count boxes, for a limited time at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants nationwide.
This is not the first time that Dunkin' Donuts celebrates Royal news. In 2011, Dunkin' Brands commemorated the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middletonwith a Dunkin' Donuts Royal Wedding Donut and Baskin-Robbins' Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake.
The limited sweets is "fun and easy way to celebrate the joy and excitement of a new baby," said Dunkin' Brands' CEO Nigel Travis, who was born in England.
'Congrats from #DunkinDonuts! In celebration, we will have our own #RoyalMunchkin coming to U.S. DDs soon!' Dunkin' Donuts tweeted to announce the new product roll out.
