Last week or so, I reported on the amazing Dunkin’ Donuts concoction of Peep Donuts. This weekend, I finally saw them on the shelves of my local Dunks. Sunday morning, I got up bright and early, strolled over to Dunks, ordered a medium coffee and an egg and cheese on an English muffin because I am an adult, and two Peep donuts because I am an adult and I do what I want.
The donut Peeps are a little bit smaller than normal Peeps, but I was pleasantly surprised by how soft and fresh-tasting they were. However, it’s a little tricky to get a bite of donut and a bite of Peep in the same mouthful. The Peeps are not so much stuck to the donut like sprinkles would be, but rather just sort of rested precariously on top. In fact, my pink Peep fell off my donut in the bag.
I ate half the pink iced donut first, and I was, again, very pleasantly surprised! The pink icing, which I think was supposed to be strawberry flavored, was perfectly sweet and the flavor just just right. Also, I don’t know if this is just because I got donuts earlier in the day than I usually do or because these donuts had to be specially engineered in order to support the weight of the Peep, but these were a little denser than the regular raised donut I usually get from Dunks.
Halfway through the pink donut, I decided to not fill up on it, and moved on to the green donut. Guys, the green icing is cloyingly sweet. It tastes like nothing but sweetness. It was too sweet for me to finish, and I was eating it on a donut with a sugar-covered marshmallow duck on it, so I have a high sweetness threshold.
Honestly, though, I’m never going to buy a Peep donut again. Like I assumed they would be, they were gross, but since they were both sitting in front of me, I ate them both and loved them. THE THINGS YOU MAKE ME DO, DONUTS!!! The highlight of the whole situation was obviously the derpy faces on the Peeps themselves.
Hahaha, look at those dumb faces!!!! No meal can be wrong if it features faces like those.
