If you’re anything like me, you love donuts. No matter how it’s spelled, what gets stuffed in them, or what glorious type of icing is lathered on top of the bakery goodness. I’m also a large peanut butter aficionado. Creamy, chunky, natural, whipped, or fully hydrogenated I just can’t get enough peanut butter. When I heard rumblings of a marriage between the two beings in the Dunkin Donuts Reese’s Peanut Butter Square, I was quite enamored.
If you haven’t read it yet, my last trip to Dunkin was a miserable failure. But in my opinion, what Dunkin does best is beverages and donuts. Thus, I refused to let a puddle of tailgate hell distract me from my quest for a peanut butter filled donut. The last time I went on launch day, Dunkin’s supply of the Resse’s PB square was completely tapped out. This leads me to believe that not only does Dunkin not stock enough of their donuts on a daily basis, but also this donut may appeal to the average schmo heading through the drive thru looking for trouble with an impulse buy.
- Square Wheat donut
- Peanut Butter buttercreme
- Chocolate frosting
- Orange drizzle
After finally getting a hold of this premium priced $1.49 square, I couldn’t help but notice its hefty nature. This thing was dense, packed to the gills. Dunkin’s patented creme filling sneak preview was present, with the signature peanut butter like colored substance peaking out of the side.
Dunkin Donuts Reese’s Peanut Butter Square – The Verdict:
Combining the timeless Peanut Butter cup combination with a peanut butter icing stuffed chocolate frosted donut is a grand slam home run. The creme in the middle was a little sweet overall, but it’s peanut butter nature was clearly present and stood out like a waffle in a pancake house. Infuse the timeless nature of a chocolate frosted Dunkin donut and you have a winning combination.
