    Dunkin’ fans can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Crème donuts and joe

    Dunkin’ Donuts, which updates its seasonal baked-goods menu about as often as Martha Stewart tweaks the feng shui of her breakfast nook, is ballyhooing its St. Patrick’s Day line-up of food and beverage items.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, the Canton-based chain of coffee-and-baked good cafes wants to alert March 17th revelers that they will able to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with an Irish Crème Donut --- and seasonal coffees and coffee-based beverages as well.

    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.
