News: Dunkin' Donuts - New Cocoa Donuts and Chocolate Menu Items

Apparently February is "Chocolate Lovers Month" at Dunkin' Donuts and they're celebrating a new line of yeast raised chocolate donuts. While chocolate cake donuts have long been the norm at many a donut shop, a light and fluffy chocolate raised donut is a first, at least, here in the States. I'd like to try one but the nearest Dunkin' is one state over in Nevada.

Until the end of February, Dunkin' Donuts is serving several varieties of the new Cocoa Donuts at the suggested retail price of 89 cents each, including:

  • Cocoa Confetti: a chocolate raised donut topped with chocolate icing and rainbow sprinkles
  • Reverse Boston Kreme: a chocolate "filled" donut filled with chocolate Bavarian Kreme and topped with vanilla icing
  • Cocoa Kreme Puff: a sugar dusted chocolate "filled" donut piped with vanilla butter cream
I'm not sure why they're spelling cream like that; it's something I'd more associate with Krispy Kreme than Dunkin'.

Dunkin' Donuts is also serving a new Chocolate Chip Bagel Twist (drizzled with chocolate with chocolate chips baked in) for a suggested retail price of $1.39. In addition, they've brought back the Triple Chocolate Muffin for the suggested retail price of $1.49.

Lastly, Dunkin' Donuts is featuring hot or iced Mocha Coffee and Mocha Swirl Lattes as the chocolate drinks of choice for February.

  1. Cut the donuts by turning the handle, then systematically arrange them in the fryer by going back and forth in rows. If you turn them in the same order that you put them in the fryer, this will make the frying time for each donut the same.
