This morning when I went to Dunkin’ Donuts, I decided to try something new. Instead of my usual Hot Dunkaccino, I decided to try their new Hot Apple Cider they are featuring this fall season. They offer both a hot version and iced version. I tried only the hot version.
So what did I think?
Visually – This did not have that thick, dark cider look to it the way you would expect if you bought a gallon of apple cider in the super market or if you got it from the farm stand. It definitely had the appearance of apple juice.
Smell – I will say it did have a nice aroma to it. It definitely has that apple smell and invites the feelings you get of a cozy fall day.
Taste – This has a very bitter and watered down taste. I can most certainly taste the various spices in this drink, but I feel that the flavor gets lost in how watery this drink is. It in no way holds its own against a cup of farm hot cider.
Overall, this drink did not do it for me. I personally love apple cider and this for me was not apple cider. It does smell strongly of apples which is nice, but lacks in overall flavor and for that I can say I will not be ordering this in the future.
NOTE: Dunkin’ Donuts did not compensate me in any way for reviewing their fall Hot Apple Cider and I can go further to say they have no idea who I am, or of my existence 🙂
