A travel columnist: "This tasted like fall to me, and called to mind those days when trick-or-treaters were invited into homes and offered doughnuts and cider. (Those days are long gone now!) I didn't find a strong pumpkin flavor – though the orange icing gives it a festive, seasonal look. I did like the spicy taste (pumpkin spice, maybe?) and the glazed doughnut component."
A police-report writer: "If I was creating a pumpkin donut for Dunkin', I'd make a pumpkin cake donut with more spices like nutmeg."
Reese's Peanut Butter Square: Filled with peanut butter buttercreme, this donut is topped with chocolate icing and an orange icing drizzle. In other words, it's candy masquerading as cake.
A digital manager: "The donut had excellent peanut butter taste. The flavor reminded me exactly of the filling from a Reese's cup. I felt it fell a little short when it came to the chocolate flavor though. Injecting some chocolate as filling or maybe using a chocolate-flavored donut might have helped here. Overall grade: B."
A social media producer: "It was quite tasty, actually. The peanut filling was exactly what I'd expect from a donut inspired by my favorite candy cup. But I'd say it was a little light on the chocolate. Still, would I order one myself? With a huge glass of whole milk, absolutely!"
A social media manager: "I wish it tasted MORE like a peanut butter cup. … I dig the peanut butter filling, that's good. It was delicious. But the doughnut flavor seems to overpower anything else, which almost negates the moniker of the doughnut: Peanut butter cup."
If these squares don’t float your boat, Dunkin’ restocked its shelves with pumpkin favorites on Monday: pumpkin coffee and lattes, pumpkin donuts and Munchkins, and pumpkin muffins.
