Dunkin' Donuts have released a trio of new flavours, each with a classic British theme. There's a lemon drizzle, a cherry bakewell, and finally this Eton mess, which I found the most interesting. It's a jam filled donut, topped with glazing and meringue pieces, then drizzled with more jam for good measure.
The stuff inside this donut is actually different from the regular jam filling Dunkin' provides. This one tastes like proper British jam, instead of that very sweet jelly that is the norm. It's a fresh change, and it's very nice, although it is a little heavy. The meringue pieces are plentiful, but they're not too light either, they provide a nice crunch and a definite sugary hit, but the texture isn't quite right, and despite the copious amounts of jam they still end up feeling a little dry. On the whole though, this is good stuff. It may not be the best Eton mess you'll eat, but it's probably the best you'll find in donut form.
My rating: 4/5
