As a food blogger, we get invited to all sorts of fun food events, previews, and what not where the restaurants or establishments showcase their new goods for free. This is usually a part of their PR campaign push to let customers know what they are up to and what is new.
Dunkin Donuts recently held one of these events at their store on University Boulevard.
Known mostly for their breakfast items, coffee, and doughnuts, they are starting a new menu to meet their customer’s PM snack cravings with stuffed breadsticks (pepperoni and cheese or cheeseburger varieties), warm apple pie, bagel twists (cinnamon-raisin or cheddar cheese flavors), and the big and toasty sandwich. The snacks are priced from $1.29 to $1.59 and are available at participating Dunkin’s locations. The new foods will be available on the menu all day.
To be honest, I think the stuffed breadsticks reminded me of hot pockets hah. I think they can work on the taste of the fillings and use fresh and local ingredients rather than processed meats and cheeses. I’d pay more for better tasting and better for you food. I think the big and toasty was a favorite at the tasting, made with bacon eggs and a texas toast bun. In general, I think its a good idea for Dunkin Donuts to move into the PM market to widen their base. maybe they can make a donut sandwich, just saying? I think the new hearty snacks menu is good for those busy at work and want to grab a quick snack.
Something that I learned about this Dunkin Donut is that there is actually a Baskin Robins attached to it where you can order your birthday ice cream cakes and have them specially custom made for whatever occasion you have. They also have a special event coming up (see photos below)
One thing about this dunkin donut is its staffed with some genuinely nice people. Kudos to the management team !
