Thanks to my partnership with the Tampa Bay Bloggers I was able to attend a tasting at Dunkin Donuts where I got to sample a line-up of their fall treats. Everything was absolutely DDelicious!
When we first arrived we got to participate in a fun, crafty-type way to have our DDelectable Dunkin treats. We used pumpkin munchkins, chocolate frosting, and pretzel sticks to make little edible acorns. This would be such a fun fall activity for the kids!

I got to try out the pumpkin iced coffee to pair with my pumpkin munchkin acorn. The coffee was great! It's a prefect way to get your pumpkin fix in the Florida heat!
Next up was the pumpkin donut and the Reese's Peanut Butter square. Out of everything I tried, the pumpkin donut was my favorite item. It was just the right amount of sweetness, but not too rich. The pumpkin wasn't too overwhelming either. It was just the perfect amount to satisfy your sweet tooth. This would be what I would be purchasing in the future as a fall treat.

The Reese's peanut butter square is a peanut butter lover's dream. Chocolate frosted dough, with a peanut butter filling inside. It tastes fabulous, but is a bit on the rich side. Make sure you have a tasty Dunkin beverage on the side. I had their dark roast pumpkin coffee.

The dark roast pumpkin coffee was so good that I had to go and get another the next morning. My husband loved it too! I must admit, I've been drinking this beverage daily since the tasting.
After that it was time for another sweet treat. The pumpkin cheesecake square was also amazing!! I love anything cheesecake, so I was excited about this. I wasn't disappointed. Rich, cheesy, and full of pumpkin flavor. Perfect for an autumn day. Or night. Actually, this treat is perfect for any time of day. Really!
We were then surprised with the unveiling of Dunkin Donuts' new drink addition to their line-up. The macchiato. We we lucky enough to try the pumpkin version, of course, but you can now order a Macchiato from Dunkin any time. Unsure about what this beverage is? It is a handcrafted, layer beverage made with steamed milk. It is then topped with a double shot of Dunkin's freshly brewed espresso. It can be customized with any one of the coffee flavor swirls.
Next up...The Tailgater Sanwhich. This Sandwich was amazing. It has juicy smoked sausage, peppers, onions, and an ancho chipotle sauce. Most people think of Dunkin Donuts as a breakfast stop, but their sandwiches are great for lunchtime too!! And what's awesome about their sandwiches is that you can customize the bread. See a sandwich that looks great, but unsure of the bread? Order a different kind. They will customize the order for you! How great is that!!
The last part of our amazing tasting was brought to us by the pairing of Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins. It was the Piñata Cake. And keeping true with the fall, pumpkin theme...it was of course, a pumpkin. We were told there was going to be a surprise for us and we were not disappointed. When the cake was cut, M & M candies spilled out of the inside of the cake. And of course it was DDelicious!!
The only item I did not get to try was the pumpkin muffin (which will be pictured below). It's a spiced muffin with white icing and sweet streusel crumbs. I will have to be picking one of those up soon.
There are also Pumpkin K-Cups available for those of you who have the wonderful Keurig machines. They are $8.99 for one box or two for $16.99. This variety has the taste and aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon found in Dunkin Donuts' pumkin flavored coffee.
And if you don't have a Keurig and prefer the traditionally roasted coffee, they have packaged coffee for you as well. This is available in 16ox sizes in the pumpkin flavor.
