Dunkin' Donuts will be selling a frosted donut decorated with red, white and blue star-shaped sprinkles they have dubbed the inaugural donut. The new donut will be available at participating Dunkin' Donuts shops nationwide for $0.89 beginning Saturday, January 17 through Tuesday, January 20.

"The launch of a new administration and a new year creates a unique spirit of anticipation, excitement and optimism, particularly among the hard-working people who keep this country running each and every day," said Frances Allen, Brand Marketing Officer for Dunkin' Donuts. "We wanted to celebrate this special time with a donut, a beloved treat that any person can enjoy at an affordable price."

So no we have several inaugural sweets: an inaugural donut, Yes Pecan! ice cream and an inaugural cheesecake. There are also a few varities of inaugural cupcakes.
