How do you feel about Dunkin' Donuts new menu

After its hyped-up advertising in the media, I tried most of the new Dunkin’ Donuts $2 snack menu. Here are some of my impressions.


First, I tried the Waffle-Breaded Chicken Fingers. I’m not sure what to make of them. As you eat them, they don’t really taste appealing (but that’s probably because they are microwaved when ordered). That being said, the breading concept is creative — it’s crunchy, as would benefit a proper chicken fritter, but a little sweet like a sugar waffle you might get on a ski slope.


I also tried their new Ham and Cheese roll-ups. Honestly, Dunkin should not have attempted these, but they certainly would bring in revenue. I would have taken more kindly to them had they been prepared fresh, but the rolls literally came out of a plastic bag when I ordered them and went straight into the microwave/oven. The cheese and ham tasted incredibly greasy, and the tortilla was a bit hard for my taste after the whole reheating procedure.


No matter the temporary deal-menu campaign they push every few months, surely their normal breakfast fare ought to be down pat by now. Let’s take a look at what DD has to offer to commuters on the regular.


Breakfast sandwiches, then. Hope you like grease, because whether you opt for ham, bacon, or sausage, you’ll be getting a more-than-healthy share of it. Oh well, nobody’s going to DD for super foods – and, for breakfast sandwiches, they aren’t terribly swamped. They are good though, and for less than five bucks a pop, a quality option. The ham and bacon options are great morning fill ups, if a bit messy. The sausage can often suffer from a bit of hockey-puck-itis at times, but as long as you don’t look at the cross-section, it’ll offer a bit more of a protein boost over the other options. Although they shouldn’t be relied on for the sake of one’s cholesterol, the breakfast sandwiches are a good choice.


And how about the donuts? Everybody loves a box of munchkins or dozen donuts, but actually how good are they? Well, with the consideration that health need not be a factor in dessert items, DD’s got the best dough loops around. Benefitting from gratuitous icing and raw fried glory, the staple delicacy is hard for many to resist.
