Critical Corner – Dunkin’ Donuts Bagel Twists April 15, 2010

A New Twist on a Bakery Favorite?   Try, the Bastard Son of a Bagel.

Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, every day stop for coffee and baked goods, has baked up a new way for bagel lovers to take a bite of their favorite snack. Dunkin’ Donuts today introduced new Bagel Twists, an innovative new “twist” on the beloved bakery item that makes it easier than ever to enjoy a bagel, any time of the day whether you’re on-the-go at work or play.

Dunkin’ Donuts Press Release April 5, 2010

So, a handheld bakery item with cheese in the middle wasn’t convenient enough for you?  You need to elongate and twist your bagel in order to eat it on the go now?

Personally, I think this is just a ploy for Dunkin’ Donuts to eliminate cream cheese.  Why do you insist on putting milk and sugar in my coffee for me (usually to excess), but you can’t spread my cream cheese on my bagel?

This “innovative new twist” is anything but that.  Stretched dough covered in cinnamon?  That’s a churro.

UPDATE:  We are not the only ones to complain. See additional review here!

    Dear Kori and Amanda,

    We would like to thank you for bring to our attention the horrible new creation that Dunkin’ Donuts has brought to the American public. Did you know it is 400 calories for just one bagel twist? Are they trying to make us more obese? Don’t get me wrong, I too can enjoy 4 pieces of pizza in one sitting. (Well, Patrick shouldn’t because he is lactose intolerant.) However, 400 calories is a little much especially if you are going to add a coffee to that order.

    Please keep these insightful postings coming. We appreciate you two taking the time out of your busy day to demonstrate the importance of learning outside of an academic setting.

      Dear Allie (and Patrick but to a lesser extent since we were told you wrote less),

      We would just like to say that we appreciate your comment and that you read our blog. We hope to one day cultivate a global audience that is just as captivated as you are. If we go global, then surely Amanda and I will become very rich and prosperous. If this happens we will be certain to write you a lovely thank you note for starting us off on our path to greatness. Also, once we are international celebrities we will make sure that the bagel stick will meet its end. We will feed all the remaining bagel sticks to the Giant Isopods and they will be no more.

      Additionally, I hope you are having an enjoyable work day and we hope to hear from you again soon.

      Best regards,
      Kori on behalf of Kori and Amanda Learn
