Debuting a new, semi-regular feature! I tryout questionable food items so that you don’t have to in… Steveats. (Note: Title developed in about 10 seconds of brainstorming.)
I’m usually critical of fast food restaurants in this space, so it’s always a pleasant surprise when I stuff something into my mouth that isn’t disgusting. (PHRASING!) Dunkin’ Donuts can be hit or miss with its items, but its new-ish caramel apple croissant donuts are friggin’ delicious.
Unfortunately, they do count as the “premium” donuts that cost more than the regular ones, but the surcharge is worth it. It’s basically a glazed croissant donut, with a caramel drizzle, stuffed with apple pie filling. It’s simple and delicious, like most of the best fast food and snack concepts. (“Peanut butter and chocolate!” said Dr. Melvin Reese 50 years ago, I imagine.)
I do call this “newish” because Dunkin’ Donuts has had similar donuts in the past, although they weren’t executed as well. They still sell apple and spice donuts, which are cinnamon powdered shells filled with the same apple pie filling, but the cinnamon is really messy and not all that tasty. In the past, they’ve done apple pie donuts, which have a weird crust crumble on top.
This new apple croissant donut is way better than those past efforts. The next time the Pats win and you’re scooping up that 87 cent coffee, pair it with one of these delicious donuts.
