Way more than donuts

Hello! I just made a little snack for myself and the kids, and I can’t help wishing I had a Magical Snack Fairy to wait on us, instead. Or—heck—just a conveniently located Dunkin Donuts, because in addition to yummy coffees and drinks (and donuts), they now have a bunch of new healthier menu options. You can get any of their egg sandwiches and wraps with egg whites, for example, or get the low-fat cranberry orange muffin for deliciousness and just 3 grams of fat.

I was contacted about trying these new menu options, but given that 1) I can’t eat wheat and 2) I don’t have a Dunkin Donuts right nearby, I am passing my gift card on to you. Actually, my gift card… and three others. Four lucky Want Not readers are going to receive a $5 Dunkin Donuts gift card to try the new lower-cal menu options (or anything else you like). Not sure if you have a local DDs? Go look it up to see!

Want to play? First go read the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, January 18th, 2010 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random drawing and donut-scented-ness. (Mmmmm… donuts….)

Ready? Go!


  1. Sweet Mir,
    I have one dangerously close to my home. Please pick me! 🙂

  2. Oh pretty please!!! I’m in love with a skim no sugar added carmel iced latte. They are so good….
    I’m just saying thats what I would get with my $5. hehe

  3. I would love to try that new muffin!

  4. YUM YUM who doesn’t love DD and their Coffee!

  5. Yumm!

  6. YUM! It makes my day to get some of their coffee and a bagel for breakfast!

  7. We actually have two very close to home! They have great coffee too!

  8. love me some DD in the morning!

  9. I have 3 DDs within a mile and half of my house! I would love to try their “diet” food. Boston Cream donuts are diet, right?

  10. Love it! Thanks!

  11. I LOVE their coffee and try to ignore the donuts…sometimes that works, sometimes not! :>)

  12. cool thanks!

  13. I have one DD close by here in the Memphis area.

  14. Oooo, fun!! None close to home, but I know we see them on all our summer travels! This would be a nice treat! Thanks, sweet Mir!

  15. I’m currently in love with my new Keurig, but I love to meet fellow moms for coffee at our local DD.
    Thanks for the shot! 🙂

  16. Perfect

  17. Who doesn’t love donuts?

  18. Yummy!

  19. I’m a little ashamed to say that we stop at DD every Sunday before church. It helps us get out of the house faster! But with something healthy, I might feel better about it. 🙂 Thanks Mir!

  20. I love DD!! And one is within walking distance from my house. Oh, please pick me!!

  21. Yes please.

  22. Coffee would be a nice treat on the way to work one of these cold mornings!

  23. Coffee & doughnuts! Yum!

  24. There’s 3 between home and work. Love the lattes. Would love to try the new muffin…

  25. Dunkin Donuts is the ONLY coffe I drink. I even buy it in the store to have at home!! Yummy!

  26. Would love to try something new!

  27. I have one within walking distance! Talk about bad news!! 🙂

  28. I must say that Dunkin Donuts is the ONLY redeeming quality of Macon, GA-where my sister lives. We have one here in Greenville, SC too. But I usually only go whenst in Macon.

  29. I love DD!

  30. Since I live in the land of a DD on every corner, I would love this. But it’s OK if I don’t, since I recharge my card automatically.

    PS The Low Fat Cranberry Orange muffins are delish, but dry. And the egg white and cheese wrap is pretty tasty.

  31. They’re on every street corner here.

  32. OH HELLO PLS ENTER ME. And no one is going to be looking if I spend my gift card on Classic Unhealthy, right? Because I do love a Boston Creme doughnut.

  33. The only thing better than donuts is FREE donuts!

  34. Healthy options? Mmmm…nah, donuts.

  35. Do I have one nearby? There are 6 within 5 blocks of here… Welcome to Massachusetts!

  36. We have a fairly new DD that is DANGEROUSLY close to our home…

  37. Excellent, sounds yummy!

  38. Comfort food with hot cocoa. Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

  39. Love Dunkin Donuts!

  40. Daddy-Daughter Saturdays occasionally involve Dunkin Donuts for my family. They’d love to try the new menu selections with a gift card! And there are DDs all over the place here! Thanks for the Giveaway opportunity!

  41. I really, really, really like DD!

  42. Their egg white wraps are especially delicious and I feel so virtuous after eating them that I reward myself with a Boston Creme donut.


  43. i never go because i am trying to be good, but i have to say i absolutely love dd…. and we have WAY too many around here. =)

  44. Love DD’s!! I want to try the new cranberry muffin!

  46. WANT DONUTS! I’d love it if I could find some better, healthier options there!

  48. Love the Boston Cream donuts, but should probably try the new lowfat muffins, as I am trying to keep up with y’all at Five Full Plates.

  49. I would love to try out the Dunkin Donuts for you. It’s a tough job, but someones gotta do it.

  50. As Homer Simpson says “Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?” Yum!

  51. I just discovered hot chocolate made by SOMEONE ELSE! I’m hooked.

  52. Oooh, we live one block from one! Decaf, yum!

  53. Sounds good!

  54. This would be FABULOUS! Thank you!

  88. I’m not gonna lie. I’d blow the whole card on donuts that I would eat in the car on the way home so I wouldn’t have to share them with the husband or the child. If loving donuts is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

  177. mmm please count me in!

  178. I prob’ly won’t use the $5 on the healthy stuff — who can resist free donuts?

  179. I could actually get a coffee and donut for $5 at Dunkin Donuts-pretty sure that ain’t happening at Starbucks 🙂

  180. Plenty of DD’s around my way, so I could put this to good use, even though my 5 yr. old daughter declared yesterday that she doesn’t like donuts. What’s wrong with kids these days!?

  181. Can’t have donuts, but I’d love to try some of their lower-cal fare.
