Dunkin’ recently dropped some new menu items to get us through the warm summer months. And this includes their new Dunkin’ Wraps!
Considering the success of their breakfast tacos, which dropped in March, it makes sense that they might decide to give us a breakfast wrap that brings to mind the idea of a breakfast burrito. And even a glimpse of the two flavors of wraps in the advertisements has us thinking that this is basically a slightly different take on a breakfast burrito.
So as soon as we saw it on the menu at our closest Dunkin’, we had to give one a try. While there are two flavors, a Chicken & Roasted Pepper Wrap and a Chorizo & Egg Wrap, we opted for what felt like a bit more of a classic, the Chicken and pepper wrap. And after trying this new wrap, we have some thoughts.
A look at the new Dunkin’ Wraps and whether they are worth the menu price
First, I have to say that the Chicken & Roasted Pepper Dunkin’ Wrap is delicious. It was full of flavor that really popped on the tongue.
However, the taste is the best part of this wrap in a lot of ways. Not only did the wrap I get not look anything like the pictures, but at $4.79 (in Western Massachusetts), it was also a bit more than I would have expected for what we got.
Unlike the pictures of the wrap, I couldn’t have pinpointed a single ingredient in the wrap. It may have been delicious (and I ate every single bite without an ounce of shame), but there were no chunks of chicken or identifiable pieces of pepper to be found. Yes, those flavors were there, so at least that was not a disappointment.
Also, this wasn’t a wrap that you could “cut in half” like the advertised picture. Not only was it too small for that (it was more like a small, stuffed square that reminded me of a toaster strudel in size), but the stuffing would have oozed out in a less than pleasant manner if you tried to cut it.
Now I don’t know if the Chorizo & Egg Dunkin’ Wrap would have been the same way in terms of the stuffing, but at this price point relative to size, I don’t know if I ever will find out. I think if they had even gone with a $3.49 price point it would have been an easier choice. However, I would rather pay the $5.09 (in Western Mass.) for one of their Sourdough Breakfast Sandwiches with bacon, two eggs, and cheese between two pieces of sourdough bread.
If you did enjoy the breakfast tacos and can’t find them on the menu anymore, this might be an option worth ordering. It was definitely a tasty menu option, just maybe not one we will be ordering without coupons or deals attached. (And we may have to consider adding a side to make it a bit more filling).
Have you tried the new Dunkin’ Wraps yet? What was your experience like? And what do you think of the price point for this new addition to the menu?
