Young Boy Who Ate Gross Donut Will Get $50,000 From Dunkin Donuts

Five and a half years ago, a 7-year-old boy ate a “foul-smelling” donut at a Dunkin Donuts in Fairmount, NY, and his family eventually filed a lawsuit. Earlier this month, the half-decade old dispute was finally settled when the insurance company for the restaurant agreed to pay the boy, now 12, $50,000.

Syracuse.com reports the cashier who sold the family a box of donuts admitted that they smelled rank, but by that time it was too late—the boy had already eaten one. A day later, the boy’s family said he began having facial and eye tics while visiting a state fair.

Doctors at a nearby hospital examined they boy, as did his pediatrician and a neurologist, and all said there was little evidence he would suffer any longterm damage because of one foul donut.

There were apparently other complaints about stinky donuts at the location, but by the time investigators arrived at the store all of the old donuts had been discarded and replaced by ones with no odd smells. The source of the stench remains a mystery.

Regardless, the suit went forward and was finally settled on January 12 when Travellers Insurance said it would pay $50,000, which will be given to the boy when he’s older.

Not a bad payout for eating a weird donut.
