John Fornagiel & Sasha Skarboviychuk 


With Valentine’s Day approaching, we decided that it is our duty as food reviewers to try Dunkin’s new menu items. They have two new donuts: Cupid’s Choice Donut, which is filled with Bavarian Kreme and strawberry-flavored icing, and Brownie Batter Donut, which is filled with a chocolate buttercream filling, with vanilla icing and chocolate sprinkles. The donuts will cost you $1.35 each, and did we mention that they are heart shaped? So cute. The seasonal drink is the Pink Velvet Macchiato, which “combines Dunkin’s rich espresso with red velvet cake flavor and hints of cream cheese icing,” according to their website. The coffee is a very cool pink color (before you mix it) and will cost you $4.59 for a large.  

Pink Velvet Iced Macchiato

John 

I am not sure what it is about me, perhaps it is my hatred of strawberries and strawberry-flavored things, but I despise pink-colored food. Like for example with this pink velvet iced macchiato, I saw its color and INSTANTLY knew that I was not going to be a big fan of it. With that being said, when I took a sip of this drink, I was not met with the strawberry flavor that I was expecting. Instead, I was met with a refreshing macchiato flavor that I could definitely get behind. So, with that being said, (and maybe this is because my expectations were set so low), I would give this drink a seven out of 10.

I was very surprised at how much I actually enjoyed the coffee; although I love red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting, usually when things like this get turned into a coffee, it just flops. But this was surprisingly good! I expected it to be way too sweet, but it actually had a very nice flavor to it. It tasted like coffee with milk, but it also had a vanilla flavor to it along with something else that I can’t quite describe. Overall, I would rate it an 8.5 and am totally going to get it next time we go to Dunkin’ (if it’s still available).   

Cupid’s Choice Donut 

John 

Remember how I said I disliked pink-colored food? Well, the pink velvet iced macchiato was absolutely the exception to that rule. I really did not like this donut; it reminded me of strawberries (and just in general the pink taste) and oh boy I cannot get behind that. This gets a five from me and I will absolutely not be getting this next time I go to Dunkin’. Also, one thing I have not mentioned yet is that this had filling inside of it, and I also really dislike cream fillings inside of donuts. That is TWO checks on my “food pet peeves” list on only one donut.

Sasha 

I have to admit, I do not love classic cream-filled donuts. They aren’t bad, but they almost always have way too much filling and it’s just a way-too-sweet mess. This, however, was a decent donut. The amount of filling was actually not too crazy. Would I buy it again? Probably not, but it was a nice change of donut. Overall I would rate it a seven. 

Brownie Batter Donut 

John 

When I first bit into this donut, I thought it was amazing: the dough of the donut mixed perfectly with the sugary-chocolate frosting. However, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t curious why it was called a “Brownie Batter” donut, and then I found out the ugly truth. The donut was filled with a chocolate sauce similar to brownie batter. Now, if you read my other review on the Cupid’s Choice donut, you’ll see that I do NOT like fillings in donuts. However, this was a chocolate filling, so it was not terrible. Also, it’s not strawberry, which also gets some positive marks from me. Overall, I would give this donut a six out of 10.

Sasha 

This donut actually really surprised me: I really liked it and am definitely dragging John to Dunkin’ for it soon. The chocolate brownie cream filling was really good, and there was just the perfect amount of it in the donut. I also liked the vanilla frosting, and how it complimented the chocolate filling. Overall, I would rate it an eight.
