Love ’em or hate ’em, they’re Easter basket staples, and now you can indulge in the pastel-colored marshmallows for breakfast, thanks to the new Dunkin’ Peeps doughnuts hitting stores April 1.
The Easter-themed treat features white icing and some festive green and egg-shaped sprinkles, topped with a mini yellow Peeps chick. Yeah, it’s pretty extra. For super fans of the iconic candy, the doughnut chain is also offering Peeps-infused coffees—available hot or iced. Both Peeps items will be available at participating locations for a limited time only and while supplies last (remember that Easter falls on April 21 this year, so plan accordingly).
To celebrate the new lineup, Dunkin’ will be hitting the road from April 2 to 4 in a “custom-sculpted coffee car” and a “Peepsmobile” (yes, really) to surprise fans with free coffee and doughnuts. They’ll hit a total of six Dunkin’ locations on their way from Peeps’s hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to Dunkin’s birthplace of Quincy, Massachusetts. At each spot, the first 250 customers will be given a free Peeps-flavored iced coffee, a Peeps doughnut and some other so far unspecified goodies.
While we’re pretty sure that the unique cars won’t be hard to miss, you’ll have to follow the coffee chain on Instagram to find out exactly where they’re heading.
But that’s not all that Dunkin’ is getting up to this spring. The expanded menu for the new season also includes a Chocolate Cherry Cold Brew, Iced Tea Lemonade and Frozen Lemonade. Looking for something savory? Check out the new Sweet Sriracha Bacon Breakfast Sandwich. The new spring additions will also be available April 1.
Look, we’re all about making the most out of Easter. But topping a sugary doughnut with a marshmallow Peep? That might be a little much, even for us. But hey, to each their own…
