Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Stuffed Bagel Minis

Score: 6.2/10

They basically just made a mini bagel without cutting out the center. Then, they stuffed it with cream cheese. What I’m not sure is whether they heat up the bagel mini first, then fill it with cream cheese or whether they just heat up the whole thing altogether.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter. Dunkin’s bagel minis are served warm, which means the cream cheese inside is also warm. Warm cream cheese actually isn’t that bad as I’ve had many a toasted bagel and if I don’t eat it fast enough, the heat from the toasted bagel warms up the cream cheese anyways. So if you were to compare the bagel mini to an actual bagel, the warm cream cheese is a nonfactor.

What is a factor is that the bagel minis are not served toasted, just warm. As someone who enjoys the texture of a toasted bagel, this matters to me. Additionally, the bagel mini itself isn’t that great. In terms of taste and texture, an actual bagel is still superior.

There is also the issue of price and quantity. A regular bagel with cream cheese is about two dollars. A single serving of bagel minis which come with two bagel minis stuffed with cream cheese and comes out to about two dollars and fifty cents. The two bagel bites combined are actually about the size of a single bagel. Considering that the regular bagel still tastes better than a bagel mini, you’re probably better off just buying a bagel rather than an order of bagel minis.

Overall, just get a bagel. It’s superior in every way to the bagel minis. The only reason I can think of where’d I’d rather get bagel minis is if I’m in a rush somewhere and I need to eat while I run there. A regular bagel may drip cream cheese while all the cream cheese in inside the bagel minis, which is cleaner and easier to eat.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

Score: 6.5/10

Beyond Meat is a plant based meat substitute that pretty much tastes like low quality ground meat, which makes it the perfect substance to be used in fast food burgers or breakfast sandwiches. The meat at fast food places is generally already trash quality, so replacing with something that tastes like trash isn’t that big of a leap.

This Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich is egg, white cheddar and a Beyond Meat sausage patty on an English muffin. Sausage is the perfect place to use Beyond Meat since it’s just over spiced ground meat.

Overall, the sandwich was okay. All the ingredients were fine, but the Beyond Meat was noticeably worse than a sausage patty made of real meat. But that’s the price you pay to avoid meat and protect animals and your health and all the other reasons why people avoid eating meat.

This thing also wasn’t very cheap. It was somewhere between four to five dollars. I could go to the nearest deli and get the same sandwich for one to two dollars less. But again, this is price of being a vegetarian/vegan. Society has deemed that vegan/vegetarian products will cost a premium. Or maybe it’s just Dunkin’ products that cost a premium.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Hot Macchiato

Score: 6.8/10

As the official website states, Dunkin’s hot macchiato is basically a cup of milk with two shots of expresso. They let you get a complimentary flavor shot. I got mocha.

Overall, this was pretty good. It cost about four dollars though, which is a lot. Starbucks is more expensive, but this still a lot for what is mostly milk. I will say that this thing has an impressive amount of caffeine. The day that I purchased this I was in a rush and drank about half the cup at once. That was a mistake as it gave me the caffeine jitters, something I don’t normally get. So if you need a jolt of caffeine, a cup of this stuff will do the trick.

Cereal Review: Apple Jacks

Score: 6/10

I remember Apple Jacks being a much better cereal when I was a kid. After eating some recently, I can’t say that this cereal is all that great. It’s just some average, generic cereal. I’m trying to think of something unique about this cereal which would make a consumer purchase it, but I can’t think of anything. Despite it’s packaging, there’s just nothing special about this cereal. It just tastes… flat. At least it’s not obscenely sweet, like Golden Crisp.

A small tip for anyone eating this brand of cereal: let it sit in the milk for like thirty seconds. Otherwise, this stuff can destroy your gums and the roof of your mouth. For a donut shaped cereal, this stuff is sharp.

Cereal Review: Frosted Flakes

Details: More information can be found at https://www.frostedflakes.com/en_US/home.html

Score: 6.5/10

Ah Frosted Flakes. An old classic. It’s just corn flakes but covered in a ton of sugar. It’s super sweet, yet I can still enjoy it. I’m not sure why. Golden Crisps was a little sweeter, but I found that intolerable. Frosted Flakes seems more palatable for some reason.

In any case, this is a profoundly sugared cereal. It is clearly catastrophic for your teeth and blood sugar levels. It’s pretty much a dessert. Don’t get this if you care about your health. Only get this if you enjoy eating really sweet things.
