Ahh, fall. I absolutely love this time of year. I'm a complete sap for all the beautiful colors, festive holidays, and chilly breezes. Even out here in the desert that is Phoenix, the fall “state of mind” is already in full swing.
Plus, because I am a bonafide foodie (hello, food blog!) the second half of the year is also like my own personal holy grail. The best of the best of the culinary world comes out to play and I just eat it up (literally).
And let me tell you, I've wasted no time enjoying the best that fall have to offer – because, you guys, I think I've already found my new fall crush:
These Caramel Apple Croissant Donuts from Dunkin' Donuts!
Now, for those of you who frequent this little food blog (you're awesome, btw!) you probably already know I have a thing for crafty and unique dishes. I just love it when a tasty treat is taken to the next level and comes out even better than before.
If I had to sum up these Caramel Apple Croissant Donuts, that's exactly what I'd say: they're like all the other delicious food at Dunkin' Donuts, only better.
So if you're still somehow on the fence of enjoying these donuts, look at it this way:
Do you love donuts? Or croissants? Dunkin' Donuts didn't crown this delicious treat an official cronut, but I think it manages to capture the best of both worlds without any of the “disadvantages.” If you've ever had a cronut before and felt it was a tad greasy, fear not – these Caramel Apple Croissant Donuts are just like the tasty donuts you know and love, only better.
And how about apples? Do you love them? How about apple pie? We all know that pumpkin reigns the king of fall, but apple is clearly the queen. The gooey apple filling within these donuts was just like having a mini apple pie, only with a soft and sugary “crust.” And if you have the time to heat these donuts in the microwave for 8 seconds? Prepare for perfection.
I mean, seriously, just look at that apple filling.
So if you're anything like me and you're hunting for all the limited-time flavors of the season, be sure to stop by Dunkin' Donuts and check out their full fall menu.
Dunkin' Donuts runs their breakfast menu all day long, so you can pick up any of these fall favorites whenever the craving strikes you:
– Pumpkin flavored coffees, lattes, and macchiatos (served to or cold).
– Pumpkin-flavored treats like the Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin Donut (a glazed pumpkin cake donut) that comes in standard or MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats AND the Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin Muffin (made with pumpkin spice, white icing, and sweet streusel crumbs).
– And if you're a homebody like me, bring the coffee magic home with you with Dunkin' Donuts Pumpkin Flavored K-Cups® or Dunkin' Donuts packaged Pumpkin flavored coffee. You can order either of these online here: http://shop.dunkindonuts.com.
