Dunkin’ Donuts Introduces a Fast Food Mashup Made in Heaven

When it comes to guilty pleasures, we love our doughnuts and our fries. Now Dunkin' Donuts has put the two together for this limited edition release: Donut Fries.

We thought it couldn’t get better than Taco Bell’s nacho fries, but now Dunkin’ Donuts is coming out with a french fry combo that we just can’t resist: Donut Fries. This release is part of an effort to expand the chain’s snacking options.

This new, must-try snack combines the presentation of your favorite fast food fry—cardboard carton included—but is all doughnut at heart. The sweet doughnut dough is fried and then coated in cinnamon sugar (how can you go wrong with that?). While they aren’t quite as slim as traditional fries, the churro-like snack definitely picks up on french fries’ dipability. These tasty doughnut sticks are definitely more convenient for dunking in coffee than your traditional Dunkin’ Donut (pssst… find more dippable, dunkable snacks here). An order gets you five fries for $2, a just-right price point for folks looking for a morning pick-me-up.

Currently, this snack is only available at a handful of Boston locations as part of a test. However, if sales are successful, the chain is likely to make them a menu staple nationwide. If you’re in the Boston area, you can also try out the chain’s other snack options also in testing: waffle-breaded chicken strips, pretzel bites, ham and cheese rollups, gluten-free brownies and warm cookies.

Until these snacks are released to the rest of the country, we’re happy to get by with our best local shops. If you’re feeling really ambitious, try making them at home—here’s how.
