Dunkin Donuts tested their donut fries at locations in Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island, and the snack got rave reviews. Thanks to the positive response, the unique fries will be available at participating locations across the United States. However, if you want to try the donut fries, you’ll need to hurry. The new donut item will only be available for a limited time.

What you’ll get

Each order comes with five donut fries for $2. If you really want to get fancy, you can even have the fries warmed. Each piece is made in croissant-style donut dough and is tossed in cinnamon sugar. On the company’s website, it says Dunkin’ Donuts tried to secretly test the new fries in their hometown of Boston earlier in 2018. However, once people found out about the new offering, they went to social media to express their excitement and request fries at their local Dunkin’ Donuts.

As America’s donut leader, we put our passion and creativity towards finding fun and unexpected ways to please and surprise donut fans. There was a strong consumer response towards bringing Donut Fries to all Americans during the initial test, and we are excited to make this unique donut treat available nationwide this summer.
