Offered at a special price and sold through their stores, these sweet glassware gifts filled with Munchkins donut holes were meant to live out the rest of their days on a kitchen counter, just waiting to be refilled with donut holes and sugar cookies.
Lasting a lot longer than a cardboard donut box, these vintage Dunkin Donuts glass jars were all part of a bigger plan to make Dunkin’ Donuts a household name.
Back in 1982, the company’s CEO told an industry trade magazine that he planned to make them the “only nationally advertised retail bakery chain.”
Although (probably) not just because of these glass jars, the business has gone on to great success. As of 2021, Dunkin was one of the top 10 largest fast food restaurant chains in the world.
