Cinnamon-Sugar Donut Fries

Dunkin' Donuts is Currently Testing Donut Fries in the Boston Area

— April 8, 2018 — Lifestyle
Following the mammoth success of Taco Bell's Nacho Fries, Dunkin' Donuts has begun testing its own version of Donut Fries. Just as the name suggests, the new side dish is a sugary sweet take on the humble French fry.

According to some observant Dunkin' Donuts fans, Donut Fries have been spotted at select stores in the Boston area. Based on early reviews, the new side dish consists of French fry shaped donuts covered in cinnamon-sugar -- similar to a churro. The sweet fries are part of the chain's new 'Gotta-Have $2 Snacks' menu, which includes other mouth-water treats such as pretzel bites, ham and cheese rollups, and gluten-free fudge brownies.

Despite positive reviews from fans, there is still no word on whether the Donut Fries will make their nationwide debut any time soon.
