Pretzel bites? Munchkin dippers? Donut fries? Those are just a few of the new items included on a $2 snack menu that Dunkin' Donuts is testing at three of its stores in Greater Boston.
An astute Redditor noticed the items during a recent visit to one of the Boston test locations. In addition to pretzel bites, munchkin dippers and donut fries, she said other items on the $2 snack menu included ham and cheese roll-ups, a gluten-free fudge brownie, waffle breaded chicken strips and warm cookies.
"I tried the pretzel bites and they were great but they use Kens honey Dijon sauce and should use kens honey mustard instead," rsoxgal36 wrote. "I also tried the Donut fries and those need a dipping sauce but they were good. Lastly I tried the waffle breaded chicken and that was gross because they were way too greasy. The batter is the same batter used in the pancake bites that they used to have."
We reached out to Dunkin', which confirmed they are testing the $2 snacking menu at a small number of restaurants in the Boston market, including 265 Franklin St. in Boston's Financial District, 588 Washington St. in Quincy and at the Logan Airport location.
New Future for Dunkin Donuts
"The snacking menu features several new sweet and savory items that pair perfectly with Dunkin' Donuts' signature beverages and are ideal for an energizing afternoon break," the company said in a statement. "The test is designed to gather valuable feedback from consumers, franchisees and their employees to help inform future decisions about a possible national rollout."'
There is no immediate word from Dunkin' on how long the snacking menu will be around.
