What is it?
Dunkin’ Donuts’ Donut Fries are individual pieces of buttery croissant style donut dough that are tossed in cinnamon sugar and served warm with just the right amount of crisp. Five pieces come with an order that’s currently selling for $2. The photo above makes it look as if I’m collecting Muppet fingers, which I assure you those are not. I wouldn’t store Muppet fingers in a bag. I’d store them in a jar like any self-respecting Muppet finger collector would.
How is it?
It’s a neat concept and, after biting into one, it’s cool to see the layers are similar to the donut chain’s croissant donuts, but its flavor is adequate.
I’ve gotten more satisfaction from a regular glazed donut than what I got with these. When warm, they’re a little crisp, but like regular fries, if you let them sit out for a bit, they get limp. The cinnamon sugar is okay, but it’s not as if they taste like mini churros. Also, the seasoning seems to be inconsistent. While two-thirds of the bites have that undeniable sweet and cinnamon flavor, the other third is mostly dough, which is an odd greasy flavor that even underlies the strong cinnamon sugar bites. Overall, they aren’t something I feel compelled to buy again.
Is there anything else I need to know?
It doesn’t come with any dipping sauce. I mean, come on, Dunkin’ has a plethora of fillings and icings to pick from. But none of them can be put into a small container as an option? Also, because there are just five pieces, it looks like a sad amount in the large bag they come in.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ Donut Fries are okay. I wouldn’t repurchase them unless they came with some a dipping sauce. But since a serving is only two dollars, they might be worth a try.
