My accounting instructors were nice enough to get Dunkin’ Donuts for everyone at the quiz review session. That certainly woke up my sweet tooth and I had to go for more myself after class.Image

The Holiday Star Donut was so green and pretty, although it is always a little weird to me to see such a bright shade of green on food. The icing was just sugary, though, with the sprinkles adding a little crunch. The Bavarian cream inside was rich and sticky, and certainly sweet enough for me. It was nice and fresh and quite tasty for a doughnut from Dunkin’ Donuts.Image

The Jelly Filled Donut was actually quite good as well. The dough was soft and airy. There was a decent amount of jelly inside that was perfectly sweetened and thickened. The dusting sugar got a little messy but added more sweetness. It was just a soft, pillow-y bundle of sweetness.Image

The Red Velvet Drizzle Donut is one of their holiday specials. It was not as great as it looked, though. The cocoa flavor was a little off, not really cocoa but not sweet. It was soft and dense but not very moist. It was not very sweet either and somewhat bland except for the icing drizzle on top. There was so much food coloring that it was a little worrisome.Image

Deciding to get something savory, I tried the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Wake-up Wrap. It was quite small but nice and warm. The soft tortilla was toasty warm and went well with the gooey melted cheese. The processed egg omelet was not too bad and the bacon was crispy. It was certainly a nice little bite in the morning.Image

I also tried their new Smoked Sausage Breakfast Sandwich that came with a split smoked sausage, a round processed egg omelet, a slice of savory processed cheese that was melted perfectly, and a toasted English muffin. The muffin was chewy and slightly tough on the outside, just the way I like it. I wished they had used a fresh egg, though. The sausage was smoky and very flavorful. It was not too greasy and I loved it together with the other ingredients.Image

If there is one thing I love about Dunkin’ Donuts, it is that they serve breakfast all day long. So who wants an egg sandwich for dinner?Image
