Score: 6.5/10

The caramel flavor swirl is by far the most obscenely sweet flavor swirl/shot in Dunkin’… and yet it’s the one I prefer. I just like sweet stuff. Also, the other flavors simply don’t taste good or aren’t sweet enough. Coconut doesn’t taste great and I’m not always in the mood for chocolate mocha. The caramel flavor swirl tastes decent enough and is very sweet. You can request how many flavor swirls you want to control the level of sweetness you want. I usually get around three or four. Dunkin’s default amount is four I think.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha Flavor Swirl

As said in past reviews, Dunkin’ flavor swirls are sweetened and flavor shots are not. Mocha is essentially chocolate, so if you add it to your coffee, it’s going to taste like chocolate milk or something like that. Because this is sweetened, it makes your coffee taste even more like chocolate milk than the unsweetened flavor shot. It’s still not nearly as sweet as Hershey’s chocolate syrup though. The Mocha here tastes like a slightly darker chocolate.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts’ Toasted Coconut Flavor Swirl

As said in a past post, Dunkin’s flavor shots are unsweetened while flavor swirls are sweetened. So Dunkin’s Toasted Coconut Flavor Swirl is a sweetener. It tastes pretty much like the unsweetened flavor shot of the same name, but with sugar. This is not a good thing. The coconut flavor shot tastes like artificially flavored coconut water. It’s not an appealing taste to me and kind of makes me want to throw up. Adding sweetener to that helps a little, but there’s not much you can do with an inherently bad taste.

My recommendation: don’t get this. Get mocha or caramel, but don’t get this.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Coconut Flavor Shot

Score: 5/10

When you order any kind of coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts, you can get flavor shots or flavor swirls. These are usually syrups, probably artificially flavored that add flavor to your average a coffee. The difference between flavor shots and flavor swirls is that flavor shots are unsweetened and flavor swirls are.

The coconut flavor shot basically tastes like they added a small amount of coconut water to your drink. In fact, it’s so light that I barely tasted it against the strong taste of the coffee. What I did taste, wasn’t very good. Watered down coconut flavor just tastes weird in coffee. It tastes like a syrup.

Overall, I don’t recommend adding this to your coffee.

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.
