Donut Fries Are Dunkin' Donuts' Latest Gift to America

The breakfast junk food rolls out next month

In the past, the only option when ordering french fries was whether you wanted the $1 upgrade to sweet potatoes (the answer was always yes). Fast-forward to today and let's just say in between uncomfortably skinny chicken fingers and asparagus masquerading as potatoes, the humble fry has taken on a few interpretations.   

Now, Dunkin' Donuts is entering the game with Donut Fries, rolling out nationwide for a limited time starting July 2. No potatoes here though: just dunkable pieces of buttery croissant dough that are tossed in cinnamon and sugar, and available in orders of five for just $2.

"As America's donut leader, we put our passion and creativity towards finding fun and unexpected ways to please and surprise donut fans," Tony Weisman, the brand's chief marketing officer, says. "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."
