Dunkin’ launches new Donut Fries

RANDOLPH, MA – Dunkin’ introduces it’s last innovation – Dunkin’ Fries- at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide. They feature individual pieces of buttery croissant style donut dough tossed in cinnamon sugar and served warm.

They began in the Dunkin’ Test Kitchen. “We were brainstorming in one of our Culinary Innovation sessions,” says Rick Golden, Manager of Donut Excellence, who created them. “We tested different kinds of dough, adding cinnamon and sugar for the right amount of crisp. The end result is delicious. They are sharable. They are fun. And they bring together two of America’s favorites. What’s not to love?” he asks.

The chain “quietly” began to test the new Donut Fries in Boston earlier this year, but they were noticed right away and thousands of customers, it points out, took to social media to share their excitement and ask them to bring Donut Fries to their local Dunkin’.

“We listened, America,” Dunkin’s Golden declares. Starting on the 4th of July, custom can enjoy Donut Fries at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants across the country with this offer – 5 Donut Fries in each order for $2. Visit http://www.dunkindonuts.com to learn more.
