Boston Kreme Shunned From Chicago Dunkin’ Dounuts Locations

Craving a Boston Kreme in Chicago? Tough cookies, or doughnuts, because all of the Chicago Dunkin’ Donuts locations renamed the pastry  the Chicago Kreme while the Blackhawks take on the Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals. The custard filled doughnut also got a fresh coat of red and black frosting. “It's just our way of celebrating with our fans in Chicago,” Carrie Reckert, manager of public relations and social media, told Redeye. “We replaced the Boston Kreme tag in participating stores with the attached Chicago Kreme tag. Same donut, different name and Blackhawk colors.” The irony of this whole situation is that Dunkin’ Donuts, the company, is based out of Canton, MA, twenty miles southwest of Boston.
