In honor of National Coffee Break Day on January 20 and National Croissant Day on January 30, Dunkin’ Donuts is introducing some new food and beverage items. EatDrinkJax was invited to sample the new menu items recently, and we were excited to check them out.
First, we tried the Dark Roast coffee. Available hot or iced, we tried the iced version. The coffee was rich, bold and fresh tasting. We like our coffee bold and this fit the bill.
Next up was the Tomato Mozzarella Supreme bagel. It’s a bagel with a topping of melted cheese and herbs. The bagel was fresh, lightly seasoned and served warm. A good bagel requires the right chewiness and this bagel had it. The topping was surprisingly light tasting. Whether that’s good, or whether you like super-cheesy, will be a matter of preference.
The Turkey Sausage Flatbread was made from turkey sausage, egg, and reduced fat cheddar cheese on an oven-toasted multigrain flatbread. It was our favorite item, even if it was competing against something with chocolate. The turkey sausage had a hint of spice, wasn’t greasy, and was very tasty. The flatbread was fresh and soft with the right thickness, so it complemented the sandwich without being too bread-y. It was a satisfying portion for a breakfast offering, even though we enjoyed it just as much at lunch.
For dessert, we had the Chocolate Croissant. The pastry was buttery and flakey. We ate at noon and the croissant was as fresh as if it had just been made (which it might have been). The chocolate didn’t overwhelm the croissant, but complemented it with a rich flavor that was tasty and a chocolatey good end to the meal.
The whole meal came to less than $10 and was a great lunch for 2 people.
Our verdict: two thumbs up!
