You know, there are no Dunkin’ Donuts outlets in Australia. Not one. Which makes me feel like our country is somewhat deprived.
But the feeling became even more so when I stepped off the plane at Auckland Airport and bumped straight into a Dunkin’ Donuts stand.
So, New Zealand has DD but Australia doesn’t. What’s the deal? There has to be a reason. I’ll look into it and if it’s an interesting story, I might post it on DomNuts.
There was no shortage of options, and after some deliberation, I got a Strawberry Doughnut, which means strawberry jam filling.
Anyway, my eyes lit up when I saw it. My last DD experience was awful – Vietnam. One of the worst doughnuts I’ve ever had. But my memory of DD in the USA is a good one. I had to give the NZ DD a go.
I am thrilled to say it was a most enjoyable doughnut.
The strawberry jam was nice and runny. It had a good coating of dusted sugar on the outside. The dough was firm and chewy.
And well worth the money of just NZ$3.
There are other Dunkin’ Donuts outlets in New Zealand, although I didn’t come across any others during my journey.
