Dunkin’ Donuts has released their spring season version of the Croissant Donut, Strawberry Shortcake!!! A criss-cross of vanilla and strawberry drizzled frosting is the outward distinguishing feature of this seasonal selection that has appeared on shelves with very little fanfare.
What differentiates the Strawberry Shortcake Croissant Donut from the rest is the extreme creaminess of the filling. While the Fudge Croissant Donut filling appeared more often than not to have deflated in the pastry’s hollow, every Strawberry Shortcake Croissant Donut I have had thus far (5 and from 5 different locations) seems to ooze with the strawberry flavored creme.
While the Strawberry Shortcake Croissant Donut provides a fluffy creamy treat, they still haven’t been able to tame that calorie count…
…yep, it’s yet another 400-calorie croissant donut. I know… “Ugh, and beach season is just two months away!“… but while it is no better, it is also no worse than any of the other Croissant Donuts.
Despite the calorie count, if you’re a strawberry fan, this is the must have treat whether it be morning, afternoon, or evening.
