Let’s review Dunkin’!
The national coffee and donut chain was founded all the way back in 1950 in Quincy, MA. It’s safe to say they are one of the largest and most popular coffee and donut chains in the world, with over 12,750 locations.
Our family frequents Dunkin’ plenty of times for a few reasons. It’s convenient, close, and Megan loves their iced coffees. So, on Mother’s Day, Megan got her iced coffee and I had an opportunity for another #SaturChains review.
I sent a group family text out and asked everyone what they wanted. We had a mix of donuts that included a maple long john, sprinkles, Boston cream, double chocolate and chocolate frosted. Then, my daughter adores the munchkin donut holes so, I couldn’t leave without that.
While glancing through their breakfast menu, I saw they had breakfast tacos. There were two types to choose from, a regular breakfast taco and one that was bacon topped. I ordered one of each, along with the hash browns and snackin’ bacon.
Everybody enjoyed the donuts and donut holes. One thing about Dunkin’ is the donuts are consistent and you know what you’re getting each time.
As for the non-donut options, the snackin’ bacon was excellent. The maple sugar coating was a delicious addition. I could start an addiction with that snack. The hash browns were a bit soggy and mushy for us.
Then there were the tacos. They were probably the saddest breakfast tacos I’ve had in the history of breakfast tacos. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but there was a tiny sliver of food in the actual tacos; like a big spoonful.
Here’s what the taco looked like on the menu.
And below was what I received. Could there be any bigger difference? To make matters worse, it was one of the worst breakfast tacos I ever had. The bacon topped taco was so bad, I didn’t even eat the second one.
According to the website, the tacos are “a warm flour tortilla, the satisfying and flavorful tacos are made with scrambled eggs, melted sharp white cheddar cheese, fire-roasted corn, and a drizzle of tangy lime crema for a refreshing finish.”
All I received was a salty mess with maybe a half teaspoon of tangy lime crema that tasted like someone put it in their mouth and spit it in my taco.
In closing. Donuts… good. Iced coffee… good. Snackin Bacon… good. Hashbrowns… meh. Breakfast tacos… oh hell no.
Here’s their menu:
