Duck Donuts® Releases Scary Good Halloween-Inspired Assortment

Limited-Time Spooky Box Donuts Available Through October at All Locations

MECHANICSBURG, PA (October 5, 2020) – Duck Donuts, known for serving Warm, Delicious and Made-to Order!® donuts, will lift spirits this October with a dozen hauntingly good Halloween-themed donuts. The popular Spooky Box is available to order in-store, online or Duck Donuts Rewards app, at all 97 Duck Donuts locations through October.

Forget tricks. The Spooky Box is all about the treats – with twelve colorful, unique flavor and topping combinations that are as photogenic as they are scrumptious. It’s also the only chance this year to try three limited-time flavors: pumpkin icing, apple and streusel topping.

The Spooky Box features:

  • Werewolf: Maple Bacon with Raspberry Drizzle
  • Dirt ‘N Worms: Chocolate Icing with OREO® Cookie Pieces and Gummy Worms
  • Boo-Berry: Blueberry Icing with Powdered Sugar
  • Spider Web: Cinnamon Sugar with Vanilla Drizzle

“Our Spooky Box is a joyful and giftable collection of delicious fun – served warm and ready for sharing,” said Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts. “We all need something to look forward to right now and the fun of Halloween can’t come soon enough. Bone appétit, boos and ghouls!”

Duck Donuts specializes in warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts. Upon entering the store, customers are welcomed with the aroma of warm, light vanilla cake donuts. Customers can create their own donut combination by choosing from a variety of coatings, toppings and drizzles, including traditional favorites such as chocolate icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with bacon. The family-friendly stores offer a viewing area where children and adults alike can watch their donuts being made.


Duck Donuts was founded in 2006 by Russ DiGilio in Duck, North Carolina. His intention? To solve a family vacation problem: “Our family wanted a place to buy warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts, and when we couldn’t find one, we decided to start our own.”

By 2011, Duck Donuts had expanded to four Outer Banks locations and the donut business was so successful that DiGilio was continuously approached about franchise opportunities by fans who begged for a Duck Donuts in their community. The first franchise opened in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 2013, and there are now 97 domestic and one international franchise location open and more than 145 additional contracts in 26 states and three countries.
