Dunkin' Donuts presents...the kimchi donut

Of course the minute I heard about Dunkin' Donuts' special kimchi donut, I knew that I had to get one into my bloodstream as quickly as possible. Not for myself, dear reader, but for you.

That's why I do these things. I don't go into Dunkin' Donuts and order a kimchi croquette (as they are called due to their lack of hole) for my own pleasure. No, I sacrifice myself on the alter of faddish fast foods just to keep you entertained.

The kimchi croquette is part of Dunkin' Donuts' donuts of the world thing. They've got a yogurt-filled one for Greece and a lentil one for India and blah blah blah. Frankly, none of them seemed particularly appealing, but probably wouldn't be too inedible when washed down with a coffee "Coolatta" or two.

So how was it? Remarkably decent. It was 70% savory to 30% sweet and had a pork (I think) and kimchi filling. Not actually a donut, and not great compared to the abundance of street food around, but a lot better than the abomination than I had imagined (and secretly wished for).


  1. I'm outraged! Where are the American donuts? Have they been so quick to forget who saved them from Communism?

  2. Good point, Tessa. I'll bring that up with them today.
