Dunkin’ is launching a huge new range featuring more than 40 vegan donuts. 

The chain, formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts, announced the news on Instagram. 

Vegan range

Currently, the vegan-friendly treats are only available to order online in Belgium. They will then launch in stores across the country from mid-May.

Flavors include peanut butter and jelly, vanilla cocoa, mango passion, lotus sensation, and more.

American fans took to social media to urge Dunkin’ to launch vegan donuts in the US.

One Reddit user wrote: “I’m beginning to suspect it’s just that much harder for these companies to make these changes in the US. 

“Whether it’s our policies or the stranglehold animal ag suppliers have on their supply chains… Something is actively keeping vegan products from coming here.”

Another said: “It’s really irritating how every other country does American food chains better than the US does.”

Last year, the chain – which saw its trial with Beyond Meat expand nationwide after sales doubled expectations – says it was ‘looking closely’ into creating a vegan donut.

CEO David Hoffman told Animal Outlook’s Corporate Engagement Manager Rachel Pawelski that shareholders will continue to see ‘more consumer choice on the menu’. 

“As it relates to a vegan donut, we continue to investigate a viable vegan donut option. We are looking at it closely,” Hoffman added.
