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.)
After experiencing the horror of the Subway “Reuben” sandwich last week, my body needed to recover. It needed something bad for me in a different way – something sugary and filling, while still being questionable.
The remedy was the Dunkin’ Donuts candy cane donut. It’s not exactly the most radical confectionary concept. They took a Dunkin’ Donut, spread some frosting on the top, and then sprinkled candy cane bits on the top and injected that bastard with enough vanilla frosting to turn anyone diabetic.
But man, sometimes the simplest ideas are the best! At my local Dunkin’ Donuts shops, they’ve also brought back the normal vanilla cream donut, except this time it’s in a shell with chocolate frosting instead of with powdered sugar. This is a total gamechanger, as now you don’t feel like an addict with a white dusting of an illicit substance all over your fingers. They also don’t spell it “vanilla kreme” anymore, probably after a strong cease-and-desist letter from another donut chain.
So, anyway. If you ate a Reuben from Subway last week, despite my best efforts to dissuade you, the remedy is a donut. Merry god damn Christmas!
