Dunkin Doughnuts croissant doughnut review....

This is the latest item from the company.

This item cost WAYYY more than a regular glazed doughnut at the place which cost roughly 1 buck.

This doughnut was certainly thicker than a glazed doughnut.

The doughnut sure was tasty, but I would not say it was not that much more of a special experience than eating a regular glazed Dunkin Doughnut.

If I was only going on taste only I would give this product a big thumbs up

BUTTT....



I had to pay 2.49 for this even before taxes kicked in just to try this item. WAYYYY overpriced imo for this product. I say 1.49 is fair.

Jack in the box had three of them for like the same price which was a much better value.

On price I have to give this item a complete thumbs down. I will not purchase another one at the price for sure!!

Could they have made the box any bigger?

That's because the consumer pays for the fancy oversized box.

Putting it in it's own special box is good marketing, makes it look more special to some and more worth the money.

I had lunch at dunkin and saw this on the menu, I didn't pay much attention to the price. If we go back I'll give it a try since I'm on an expense account
