Dunks Testing Out Donut Fries, Chicken Tenders and More
While they haven't reached The Berkshires yet, Dunkin' Donuts is testing out Donut Fries and other non traditional menu items in a few select stores in the Boston area.
Aside from Donut Fries, which yes, are exactly what they sound like, think bootleg churros, the new "Gotta Have $2 Snacks" features, Pretzel Bites, Waffle Breaded Chicken Tenders, Gluten Free Brownies, Ham and Cheese Roll-ups, and Munchkin Dippers (regular munchkins severed with chocolate dipping sauce). Dunkin' says the menu is paired with signature beverages and is designed as an afternoon snack.
The test will gather feedback from customers and employees to help determine whether to sell the items nationally.
Dunkin' Donuts, along with other chains are trying to upgrade their food menus to get more people to stop throughout the day. Starbucks, for example, has been tinkering with its salads, sandwiches and snacks to boost sales at lunchtime.
