According to Dunkin,’ the Irish Crème Donut “features a sugared raised shell with Irish Crème-flavored filling and is finished with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.”

At participating stores, Irish Crème Coffee will also be available, in both hot and iced varieties, for a limited time.

Irish Crème Frozen Coffee Coolatta is another item on the seasonal beverage menu as is Irish Crème Latte, which is topped off with a caramel drizzle.

“We love to offer guests innovative menu items that can add a bit of fun and excitement to their favorite holidays,” Stan Frankenthaler, Dunkin’ Brands’ executive chef and vice president of product innovation, said in a statement.

The chain has more than 10,000 restaurants in 32 countries worldwide. In 2012, Dunkin’ Donuts’ restaurants had global franchisee-reported sales of about $6.9 billion.
