Dunkin Donuts bakery series coffee flavors

  • h

Where to even begin...these limited edition, avail for a limited time flavors come in Chocolate Glazed Donut, Blueberry Muffin, Jelly Donut, Old Fashioned Donut and Caramel Coffee Cake. All sound super sweet and although inspired by the very donuts DD lovers enjoy, I just can't wrap my "mug" around them. How about you? Does Jelly Donut coffee sound like the ideal morning perk?

  1. I don't like DD regular coffee (bitter and burned tasting) let alone those disgusting sounding flavors. Why mess with something so wonderful as a coffee bean?. Can there be that many people out there who want their coffee to taste like a sugary donut? Next thing we'll be offered coffee that tastes like a cheeseburger or why not a nice cup of bbq chicken flavored coffee?

      Yeah, even if you have a sweet tooth and love jelly donuts does jelly donut coffee even sound remotely appealing? I'm thinking these offerings will be very short lived.

    2. I saw this briefly and thought it would be very, very yuck...but I'm not a huge fan of flavored coffee anyway.

      I do like Dunkins coffee, but I'll skip those.

      1. I am not their target audience here, and have tried regular DD coffee and thrown it out after a few sips on several occassions.

        I'm a purist. Don't f*k with my coffee. No flavors, no mochacrappachinos, no fake flavors, nothing but the creama ontop of my espresso thankyouverymuch.

        So those flavors sound bizarre.....and kinda gross actually...

        1. Most of these "coffee flavours" sound like a fate worse than a bad hangover. Ughhh.

          1. Who do they test these flavors on? I miss the good ole days of regular, decaf and the occasional flavor (for the hazelnut lovers out there) but now...I just don't take the brand seriously anymore.

              Well there are a few things I find curious about this.

              First;
              "They are all available in an 11 oz bag at grocery stores nationwide.".....why wouldn't they sell them out of their own locations as well? Why just grocery stores?

              Second;
              Along the same line as above, why only by the bag and not by the cup in their stores? I would be much more prone to buy a bag if I could sample a cup.

              Third;
              "These flavors are available for a limited time only so be sure to get them while you can."

              Sounds to me the purchasing agent for DD lost a poker bet to a supplier and had to buy ton's of this crap, DD is now stuck with it and trying to unload it.

              Doesn't look to me like a product or promotion they are fully supporting.

                The entire line is on the website. Ads are running on tv. I was told the bags were suppose to be displayed IN the bakery depts of grocery stores. So far, I haven't seen that setup. Like you, I haven't seen the coffee sold in their own coffee stores yet.
