The holiday season is fast approaching and, like every year, this means an onslaught of special seasonal releases. Some are more questionable than others. Case in point: Dunkin’ Donuts has announced a limited edition tandem bicycle as part of its annual holiday release for 2020.
“Just like the iconic coffee and donut duo, everything is better with a buddy,” chimes Dunkin’s description of The “America Rides on Dunkin’ Tandem Bike.” With a custom Dunkin’ paint job and, uh, questionable design, the snack-friendly tandem sells for USD$500.
Dunkin’s tandem is easily the weirdest of the chain’s 2020 holiday release. It’s not the only out-there option, though. There’s a mini-fridge, an array of personalized Dunkin’ apparel and accessories, a dog leash, hoodies, sweatpants and a full Queen-sized duvet. All are, of course, heavily covered in Dunkin’s logo.
The annual holiday release seems quirky, but it is popular. One day after opening to the public, all but a few items are sold out. You can still get personalized shirts and the mini-fridge, but not much more.
And, if you’re looking for a new tandem, you’re in luck. The limited-run Dunkin’ tandem isn’t sold out, yet.
