Today was an exciting day. I have to admit that I’m always a sucker for fast food novelty releases (love this blog). I promise, I really don’t eat that much fast food, but I definitely have fun making special trips whenever something ‘so-weird-it’s-good’ comes out. I’ve actually been meaning to make one post about all the funny things I’ve tried lately! I still will, but this one deserves a dedicated post. I’ve heard about the donuts-as-buns fad, but hadn’t tried anything. I found out from my brother, who is always my partner in novelty food crime, that Dunkin’ Donuts released a glazed donut breakfast sandwich in Massachusetts. I think the fact that DD has not been announcing which locations have them or really how long they will be around made it more exciting. Paul found the one place that has it in the Boston area, and luckily it was not too far away. Although it’s kind of in a random location if you ask me! All the more mysterious.
Anyway, we got our hands on them and dug in. Well, Paul dug in…I took pictures from every angle and then dug in. I was immediately surprised by how soft, warm, and pillowy the donut was. And then I was even more surprised by how tasty I thought it was! I’m not even a big breakfast sandwich eater, so I wasn’t expecting to love it. I was more expecting to feel a little sick halfway through, but it’s actually not a very heavy sandwich. I read one review that said it’s lighter than eating a bagel sandwich, which I now totally get. I feel a little bad for posting this, since it’s such a limited release…but I figured some of you might be interested in seeing what it looks like! I would like to try making it myself at some point. Let me know if you’ve tried making something like this or if you’ve tried donut buns (lol) at a place near you!
