Excited about maple: Dancing Pumpkin Man runs to Dunkin’ Donuts


Dancing Pumpkin man announced fall has come to Dunkin’ Donuts. But, move over pumpkin, maple takes over Dunkin’s menu.

A few flavors are fall classics. Maple and pumpkin are usually the top choices. While so many other brands have embraced the pumpkin spice, Dunkin’ Donuts is all about the maple. From beverages to donuts, maple is all the theme of Dunkin’s fall menu.

Starting around August 28, Dunkin’ Donuts will start offering its limited fall specials. Although some people will head straight to the pumpkin spice donuts, maple inspired choices are much more interesting. Since protein can fuel the day, the new Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich is a big start to the day. With Maple Sugar Cherrywood smoked bacon, the sweetness from the maple and the bitter from the smoke balance each other. Served on a croissant, the buttery, flaky dough adds the crunch satisfaction to each bite. This hearty breakfast sandwich will keep the hunger away till lunchtime.

Since a breakfast sandwich needs a worthy beverage pairing, the Maple Pecan coffees and lattes are a delightful choice. The maple flavoring adds a hint of sweetness without becoming overly sweet. A classic pairing, maple and pecan, is reminiscent of that Thanksgiving pecan pie. Even if you don’t run for a heaping slice of pie, this coffee combination is wonderful fall beverage (instead of all that pumpkin spice).

Of course, Dunkin’ Donuts can’t let a season change happen without including a special donut. The Fall Festive Donut is more about the fall colors that a specific flavor. The donut will include chocolate and orange sprinkles with red icing. It looks like the changing leavings (if you’re lucky enough to see the fall colors change).

For the pumpkin fans, don’t fret. Dunkin’ Donuts has a new pumpkin option for you too. The new Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread is a great option for that morning bagel. Made with real pumpkin, the spread can curb any pumpkin craving.
