REVIEW: Dunkin’ Stuffed Biscuit Bites

Dunkin’ has a new bite-sized breakfast snack, so naturally I had to review it.

I’m not sure why, but this has basically become my Bat Signal. If the folks there “Munchkinify” something new, I have to try it as soon as possible and share my dopey opinion with you fine folks online.

Stuffed Bagel Balls? Check.

Mini Pancakes? Got ’em.

Snack-sized Wake-up Wraps? Reviewed ’em.

Shot glasses full of cappuccino? Actually, they haven’t done this, and rightfully so. That would be a terrible idea.

Eh, who am I kidding? I’d be there in the first week ready and willing to give my review, just like I was for Dunkin’s new Stuffed Biscuit Bites.

As much as I wanna sit here and give a glowing review of these tasty little discs, I don’t know if I should because I’ve been bamboozled!

Dunkin’s Biscuit Bites are almost identical to the Omelet Bites I reviewed last year. When I took my first bite, I immediately knew I’d had these before. They’re almost literally a repackaging of the same product in a slightly different casing. I’ll be fair, though, and actually review the Biscuit Bites because, after all, I liked the Omelet Bites.

I would say these are a slight step down, mostly due to the dry and bready shell coating. They still have a nice texture, but I was hoping there would be a buttery Southern-style biscuit base. Instead, it’s more of a soft stuffed bread with a light biscuit flavor.

If you’ve ever had one of those giant crusty knishes from a Jewish deli, the exterior really reminded me of one of those. I prefer square fried knishes myself, but I also like those, so this isn’t a knock in terms of the flavor. It was just a little too dry for such a small presentation.

If an “egg knish” was a thing, this is it. Whereas I would douse my knish in mustard, the egg, cheese, and bacon interior of the Biscuit Bites wasn’t enough to fully overcome the dryness.

Like the Omelet Bites, the stuffed portion here tasted exactly like the inside of a Pillsbury Toaster Scramble. While the bacon isn’t really noticeable by the eye, the slightly artificial flavor is there in droves, and the cheesy eggs act as a nice glue to keep everything intact. Despite harping on the dryness, I was still pleasantly surprised these weren’t in any way mushy.

So, these are new, but not really?

Ultimately, I liked them, but these are just a carbed-up repackaging of an old idea. I’m still a sucker for the small bites, and these held me over for a few hours, as I expected.

There’s an offer all month in the app where you can get these for free with a drink order, so you might as well try them out.

If you liked the Omelet Bites and think the idea of an “egg knish” sounds fun, you’ll have a good time. I’d probably ask for some syrup or, forgive me, ketchup the next time I get these to moisten them up a bit.

  1. Wait…why would shot glasses of cappuccino be a terrible idea? Many types of espresso drinks are made in smaller volume…and many people also enjoy simply shots of espresso. Just sayin’.

  2. I too got them for free with the deal in the app, and even for free they weren’t worth it to me. I didn’t care for these at all, it was mostly dough (and nothing that screamed “biscuit” to me) and they were small and hardly filling. I would definitely not get these again, even for free.

    1. Got mine with the same promo, and I agree with you 100%. They were awful. The insides felt underdone, and the whole thing was just kinda mush in my mouth. The ones I got tasted like baking soda — not at all pleasant — and there was a piece of gristly bacon (how??) that was quite off-putting. You could *probably* pay me to eat them again, but that’s the only way I’d be back for more.

  3. I am the minority of this small group! I liked them. I wish they were served a little “toastier,” – but sure that’s the product of the person who is warming/heating. I liked the biscuit wrap. Mine was nice and flaky. My issue, as I’m constantly dieting, is these are calorie dense for the serving size. They could be more filling, and 260 calories is a lot to throw away on a couple of bites. Also, disclosure, I got them free with the app as well. When it comes to bites, the Starbucks egg white bites are far superior, with more filling and better nutrition. Thanks for sharing.
