REVIEW: Dunkin’ Breakfast Taco – The Impulsive Purchase

3 min read

I believe we’ve all gotten a little bit sloppy with our quick meals naming conventions. Put one thing inside a tortilla shell and we’ll name it a taco. That’s just about what I used to be anticipating from Dunkin’s new “Spring” merchandise, the Breakfast Taco. I figured it could simply be some eggs, cheese, possibly a little bit bacon, and…wait, Dunkin’ already makes that. It’s referred to as the Wake-up Wrap, and it’s been on the menu for ages.

I used to be involved: Was it attainable that Dunkin’ was relaunching nearly the very same product beneath a distinct identify? Who do they assume they’re, Taco Bell?

However no, Dunkin’ made one thing that’s not solely totally different from its different choices however exhausting to search out wherever in quick meals breakfast land: a taco with a taste profile that bespeaks its Mexican origins.

First, there are two variations: plain or with a bacon topping. I needed to really style the entire delicate flavors with out having to take care of that overbearing bacon taste, so I went with the primary possibility.

The taco begins with corn. Dunkin’ calls it “fire-roasted corn,” nevertheless it didn’t style notably roasted to me; it was only a nice, candy taste. Not overly candy or syrupy, however simply the pure sweetness of the vegetable. At first, the corn was so dominant that it was exhausting to discern the opposite flavors, nevertheless it’s a dish with shocking depth. I seen extra delicate taste notes as I ate, which is an expertise I don’t typically get with breakfast meals.

A kind of delicate flavors is from the jalapenos. I have to be clear that this isn’t a really spicy merchandise; the warmth is gentle and simply quietly provides depth. Typically, after I make curry for dinner, I make it with solely a smidgen of spices in order that my spice-timid 7-year-old will eat it. That’s the type of warmth stage that is: you understand it’s there, and that’s sufficient.

I additionally picked out the herbaceous chew of cilantro, which provides a whole lot of brightness. Extra distinguished is the melted sharp white cheddar cheese, which provides a dairy tang to the proceedings. It isn’t noticeable in each chew however presents a pleasant, salty distinction when it pops up.

Lastly, there’s a “tangy” lime crema, however I solely actually tasted it on the very finish of the taco, when all I had left was crema and a little bit tortilla. It might have simply been my taco, or possibly the crema is one other ingredient that’s meant to be delicate.

Dunkin’ might have bunted the ball right here and simply made glorified scrambled eggs in a tortilla shell, nevertheless it went the additional mile and is providing prospects a novel expertise, not simply totally different from different Dunkin’ menu gadgets however totally different, interval. Will it win out over extra tacky, eggy, bready meals in my private breakfast rotation? Possibly. Whereas I could not order it each time I’m going to Dunkin’, I’m actually glad the choice is there. I take my hat off to Dunkin’ for making an attempt one thing new.
