Dunkin' Donuts Christmas Options

Dunkin' Donuts is offering some Christmas themed donuts right now and so your Chocolate Priestess stopped in to her local Kroger's branch of the donut shop and bought a half dozen with four varieties.  Four vanilla donuts -- two glazed crullers, a cake with sprinkles and frosting, and a yeast with sprinkles and frosting.  And then the only two chocolate ones they had at around 10AM -- chocolate peppermint.  Normally a donut there is 89¢ but for half dozen it is about 80¢ plus local tax.

These donuts around approximately 3.25 inches in diameter and about 1.25 inches thick.  They have a very chocolaty smell, a very cake-donut scent as well, but the sprinkle of peppermints on top don't really have a fragrance that I can pick out.  They are firm but still very soft the next day when I eat them.  They have a very solid cocoa flavor, not sweet at all though the chocolate frosting has a hint of sugar and the peppermint scent is released as I chew along with a very light coolness in my mouth.  This is a donut for those of us who don't want a sweet morning pastry but still a solid dose of cocoa.  The cake quality will require you to have something to drink with it.  I liked it a lot though I can't say it is my favorite yet of the chocolate varieties from Dunkin Donuts, which needs more chocolate I think.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.

Oh, my daughter would love these! We'll need to get some as soon as we can get out of our driveway (all snowed in!)

Oh, I envy you having any snow. This "huge storm" has given us two dustings that might total a quarter of an inch outside.

Thank you for reading and commenting, 5StarFoodie.
