We recently paid a revisit to Dunkin’ Donuts and were happy to see that the hype has died down and there are no longer long lines.
Despite it being near closing time, there was still a good selection of donuts. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good photo of the display since the employees were constantly in front of it getting donut orders prepared for customers.
Since Easter is right around the corner, they were featuring peep donuts perched on flower shaped donuts. Normally I don’t care to eat peeps, but these were just so adorable. And since donuts are all the same price at Dunkin Donuts, even these specially decorated ones cost the same as the rest.
In addition to the peep donut, we also got a sour cream old fashioned donut, a glazed chocolate cake, toasted coconut, and powdered chocolate cake.
The sour cream old fashioned is much softer than other old-fashioned donuts I’ve had, but it was incredibly moist. I do wish it wasn’t so soft, and would have preferred a firmer exterior.
The other cake donuts were pretty good, basically full-sized versions of the munchkins I’ve been getting.
We also picked up an assorted box of 25 munchkins.
On my first visit, I had been discouraged that there were only 4 varieties, but this time there were 7.
While our order was bringing prepared, we learned that you can actually order a smaller amount of munchkins even though it isn’t listed on the menu. Mr. K was complaining that I got too many munchkins and should have asked if they offered a smaller amount. Of course he then proceeded to eat half the box before I stopped him.
I originally thought there was only 6 flavors, but I found a seventh after this photo. The munchkin flavors that day were glazed, glazed blueberry, sugared blueberry, glazed chocolate cake, cinnamon chocolate cake, sugared cake, and cinnamon cake.
As always, I found these munchkins extremely addicting and we polished them off in no time. They are small, but we end up eating much more than of the regular-sized donuts.
We also got an ice coffee which I drank on the car ride home, before I could take a photo. Unfortunately, it was actually quite disappointing because they didn’t properly mix the sugar and cream.
