Choosing between Dunkin's Best and Worst Food

The winner is the jelly donut.

The fruit-flavored Dunkin Jelly Donut has 250 calories and 4 grams of saturated fat, meeting the daily saturated fat requirement.

Apple Stick comes in last place.

Why do fruits glow? Possibly worse than Apple Sticks: Donuts. 470-calorie apple sticks—almost dinner. Before "empty calories," this doughnut contained nutrient-dense calories without vitamins or minerals.

Donut Chocolate Butternut

The crumbly-topped cakey chocolate doughnut was popular when discontinued years ago. One delicious donut has nearly 50% of your DV for saturated fat and 18% for sodium, despite not being salty.

Bagel à grains multiples

The Dunkin' Multigrain Bagel features whole grain, seed, and oat fiber for morning fiber. High-fiber diets reduce cholesterol, sugar, and constipation.

Coffee Cake Muffin is the Worst.

Breakfast muffins are nutritious, but Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Cake Muffins lack fruit, fiber, whole grains, and other nutrients.

My favorite: Egg and Cheese Wake-Up Wrap

"The Dunkin' Donuts Egg and Cheese Wake-Up Wrap has 7 grams of protein from the egg and cheese," claims this low-calorie, sugar-free, saturated-fat snack.

Best: Plain Cream Cheese Stuffed Bagel Mini

American Heart Association advises 1,500–2,300 mg of salt daily. Choosing filled bagel minutes saves 220 mg sodium.

The best is hot tea.

A range of Dunkin' Donuts hot teas provide hydration, comfort, and health benefits without calories, sugar, fat, sodium, or protein.
