It's summer time, I think... Well, with the intermittent bursts of sunshine and rain, I guess it's shaping up to be a true British summer, and what better way to celebrate than with a distinctly British summer themed donut from a distinctly American donut shop? This strawberries and cream donut certainly looks good, but I wasn't too sure what to expect when I took a bite.
The donut itself is pretty fantastic. The dough is soft and sweet, as with all the Dunkin' family, and while I was a bit disappointed at finding only one side seemed to contain cream, it turned out it was injected all around the outside, meaning every bite was accompanied by smooth, sweet creaminess. The strawberry elements exist in the frosting on top, and while the pink icing is certainly wonderful and flavoursome, the strawberry bits sprinkled on top are a little distracting. The crunchy texture doesn't really go with the rest of the soft, doughy goodness, and the flavour is certainly very bold, distracting from everything underneath that works so well together. This is certainly a nice donut, but I think it would work a lot better without the pieces on top. Still, it put me in a summer mood, and I'm looking forward to whatever Dunkin' Donuts might have up their sleeve for the coming months.
My rating: 4/5
