I have been remiss in posting this as I was computer-less for several days, and although there are folks out there talented enough to write amazing blog posts on their smartphones, I am just not about that life. So apologies for the delay that you didn’t even know about. I meant to post this last week. ANYWAY.
The family and I checked out the location off Iliff and Havana, where that diner used to be. Pauly and I treated the kiddos to a fun and indulgent breakfast a couple Saturdays ago. Everyone picked out their favorite donuts…
While Pauly and I enjoyed some breakfast sandwiches! I had never tried any actual food at a Dunkin’ Donuts before, because, DUH, DONUTS. But I did try the Veggie Egg White Omelette on Flatbread and it was actually really good. I’m trying hard to eat more healthfully, and while it’s hard to fit donuts into that life, I felt perfectly satisfied munching on my egg white sandwich while everyone else indulged. Okay, truth is, I had a bite of someone’s donut. And it was amazing. Paul had the Sausage Egg & Cheese Bagel and he said it was really tasty too.
Naturally, the kids were thrilled to eat donuts and steal drinks of my iced coffee.
We also have a great Dunkin’ Donuts right in our ‘hood, which is always full of high school students, as it is practically across the street from Smoky Hill High School. Sadly, it opened up AFTER my oldest daughter finished her studies there! Bummer! This is a great store with a fun, friendly staff! I went along with my bestie, Laura, so we could indulge in some iced coffees. Little did I know that DD’s iced coffees come in flavors beyond plain ol’ vanilla. I had Butter Pecan and Laura had Cookie Dough. DUDE.
I tried both of them and have to say, I liked the Butter Pecan better. But I’m not a cookie dough lover like everyone else on the planet, so your results may vary. Here are all of the fantastic iced coffee flavors:
- Butter Pecan Swirl
- Caramel Mocha
- Cookie Dough Swirl
- French Vanilla Swirl
- Hazelnut Swirl
- Rocky Road Swirl
- White Chocolate Raspberry
Yum! Next time, I am all over the White Chocolate Raspberry. So good!
Now here’s something fun for ya – while we were at the counter picking out donuts, we saw the donut holes, aka MUNCHKINS, and…inspiration struck! We decided, how fun would it be to take some of those munchkins home and make CAKE POPS out of them? The fun of decorating cake pops, without the hassle of baking and crumbling and assembling and cussing about them falling apart! Laura wrote a whole post about our Munchkin Donut Hole Cake Pops and you can check it out on her blog right here!
We always have a blast together, whether we’re gallivanting around town eating donuts or engaging in boring household drudgery. That’s the fun of having a best friend!
