Starting on Mar. 31, participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations across the country will be offering PEEPS Donuts. The flower shaped donuts will be topped with a brightly colored PEEPS Marshmellow Chick.

The sugary super sugary combination of Dunkin’ Donuts and PEEPS will only be available for a limited time.

DNKN stock climbed modestly in Tuesday morning trading. Dunkin Donuts shares have gained more than 35% over the past year.

In February, Dunkin’ Donuts reported fourth-quarter profits and revenue that topped Wall Street forecasts[5]. Dunkin Donuts also boosted its quarterly dividend would rise from 19 cents a share to 23 cents a share.
