Dunkin’ Donuts Valentine’s Day Donuts
***** Dunkin’ Donuts Valentine Day’s Donuts.
Last week- Dunkin’ Donuts of South Florida’s corporate office invited Jeff Eats to sample its Valentine’s Day offerings as well as its Chocolate Croissant, a recent addition to its menu. They sent me a $25.00 gift card and asked me to visit a DD in my area…of course they requested feedback and hopefully a “plug” in a Jeff Eats’ column.
Long story short,
Yesterday morning- Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats stopped in at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 3011 Yamato Road in Boca Raton and used the gift card to sample the following products: Heart-Shaped Brownie Batter Donut (heart sprinkles and chocolate frosting outside, brownie batter inside), Cookie Dough Donut (chocolate chips outside, cookie dough filling inside) and Cupid’s Choice Donut (pink frosting and custard filling inside); Chocolate Croissant and a White Chocolate Raspberry Iced Latte.
I enjoyed everything,
My favorite donut was the Brownie Batter, which had a terrific combination of chocolate outside and brownie batter inside. The warm Chocolate Croissant was also delicious and trust me- for $1.79, I could handle one or two of those suckers every day. The latte was ok, but you-guys know that I’m a straight up black-coffee kinda guy so “it wasn’t really my cup of tea”…Mrs. Jeff Eats loved it!
Now for the kicker, in addition to the $25 gift card that I already mentioned, the corporate office also sent me a second $25.00 gift card to use as I liked. Nothing for nothing, I had thought about keeping it for myself, but being a good guy- I’m gonna give it to one of you guys. To win-it send Jeff Eats a “comment” telling me- why you love Dunkin’ Donuts (if you gotta lie, lie) and in honor of Valentine’s Day, the 14th person to write me will win the card. If I don’t get 14 by February 12th, I’m the winner! By the way, Jeff Eats isn’t going to “publish” your comments-immediately on receipt…this way you guys won’t know where you are in the contest pecking order.
Finally, some of you guys with pencil and paper- have probably figured out that my “test” added up to less than 25 bucks…just so you know, I also took home a mixed-dozen donuts, so there!
All in all, I gotta tell you that I was super impressed with the “DD” I visited- clean, sharp service and the stuff was real good- comp or no comp!
Finally, some of you guys maybe wondering how Jeff Eats’ Dunkin’ Donuts outing- compared with the “gourmet” donut stores that dot the South Florida landscape- to be perfectly honest with you, the stuff I had this morning was real-strong. One other thing to keep in mind, maybe there are 5-so called gourmet guys within a 45 minute drive from my Boca Raton home…just guessing, but Dunkin’ Donuts in the same radius probably has 451,296 stores- soooo “availability” has to be factored into rating Dunkin’Donuts and that definitely helps-its case!
