Dunkin’ gives the bagel a twisted makeover
Always eager to push the envelope on hand-held cuisine, the food scientists at Dunkin' Donuts have scrutinized the bagel and found its design a bit wanting.
Sure, the bagel is pretty nice if you're enjoying a leisurely Sunday brunch in the breakfast nook, but as a culinary delivery platform for folks on the go, there were some engineering issues about the bagel's portability.
According to a company press release, the new product is "an innovative new 'twist' on the beloved bakery item that makes it easier than ever to enjoy a bagel, any time of the day whether you're on-the-go at work or play. The new Bagel Twists feature Dunkin' Donuts' famous bagels, twisted into a more portable, easy-to-eat shape, perfect for busy people on-the-go seeking a delicious snack to keep them running throughout their day. Bagel Twists are available in a variety of flavors including Cheddar Cheese, Cinnamon Raisin, Sour Cream and Onion, Pretzel Salt, Blueberry, and French Toast. Bagel Twists are a new addition to Dunkin' Donuts' spring menu. Flavors vary by market and are available at the suggested retail price of $1.39 at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants."
Customers who order a Bagel Twist can wash it down with a Mocha Iced Coffee, another new item on Dunkin's spring menu.
And just to round things out, there are also "colorful spring-themed donuts such as the new 'Spring Showers' donut, featuring a yeast ring topped with chocolate icing and covered with rainbow nonpareils, and Spring Munchkins donut hole treats, featuring old fashioned cake Munchkins dipped in rainbow nonpareils," Dunkin' said.
