Sometimes it seems like Starbucks gets all the love when we talk about our fave coffee chains, but Dunkin’ Donuts, with its upcoming launch of Donut Fries (yes, Donut Fries!), has proved yet again that it’s a more than worthy contender when you’re deciding where to get your afternoon sugar-and-caffeine fix.
According to the Dunkin website, the donut fries are made from fried croissant-style donut dough that’s rolled in cinnamon sugar, so you get some crunchiness on the outside and nothing but soft, buttery dough inside. Think mini churros, only instead of chocolate sauce, you can dunk yours into a cup of coffee. Get ready to line up on July 2 for your first bite. You’ll be able to get five hot donut fries for $2 . TBH, you might as well shell out $4 and get a double order, because you risk losing several of them to your hungry friends and co-workers.
Rick Golen, who holds the coveted title of “Manager of Donut Excellence” invented the treat. Um, where can we apply to be his successor? “We tested different kinds of dough [and] adding cinnamon and sugar for the right amount of crisp,” he says, and the rest was history. DD tested the Donut Fries in Boston, where people are *truly* obsessed with the chain. Now, the rest of us will finally be able to get a taste of donut shop nirvana.
Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t the first chain to get creative with fries in recent memory. Earlier this year Taco Bell caused a scene when they launched Nacho Fries (which swapped ketchup for queso). Burger King is notorious for its Chicken Fries (and Fiery Chicken Fries), and even McDonald’s has launched Gilroy Garlic Fries in California. Being obsessed with all kinds of fries is apparently something we all share.
