Dunkin’ Donuts S’mores Donut
The S’mores Train rolls on, and it just hit Dunkin’ with a full head of steam.
Dunkin’s Donuts S’mores Donut is a yeast-based donut with a new toasted marshmallow filling, chocolate frosting, graham cracker pieces, mini marshmallows, and bits of Hershey’s chocolate seen here melting in the sun:
This is nearly as good as it gets from Dunkin’, who appears to be stepping their game up as of late. The cake batter filling in last month’s Vanilla Cake Batter Donut was excellent, and so is this new toasted marshmallow one. It has a nuanced sweetness that will have you saying: “Damn, that’s marshmallowy.” Dunkin’ didn’t skimp on this filling either. As seen above, it’s explosive, and it stretches from end to end.
The rest of the donut isn’t too shabby either. Dunkin’ used their normal chocolate frosting, but also doubled down by adding bits of Hershey’s chocolate to make the chocolate taste more authentic – a smart choice for s’mores. The mini marshmallows atop the donut were a must, and they’re pleasantly soft and chewy. The only thing holding this back from being a perfect Dunkin’ donut is that the graham cracker pieces lose their crunch from sitting out. The flavors are all there, though, and I love it.
You can safely commit to a half dozen, a full dozen, or a dozen dozen.
