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.

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

Score: 5.8/10

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.
