The Laidback Gourmet: Dunkin Donuts Reverse Boston Cream

Welcome to another edition of the Laidback Gourmet, where the chocolate flows as freely as the wit. Hey, have I ever mention that I love chocolate?

Big D: “Damnit Ed, you’re memory is terrible, you said that just last edition!”

Well, that saves me a lot of time then. Anyway, I found out that Dunkin Donuts is on this whole chocolate kick. Well when I found out about that I knew I had to go stop by because, I don’t know if I ever mentioned this before, I LOVE chocolate.

Big D: “Ed, seriously?”

Oh right, slipped my mind. Anyway, I picked out the chocolatiest item they had. After a short debate with the clerk whether chocolatiest is a word or not, I ended up getting a “Reverse Boston Cream Donut”.

As you know, a normal Boston Cream Donut is a plain or vanilla donut filled with a vanilla custard with chocolate icing on top.

As you can from the picture, true to its name, a Reverse Boston Cream would be a chocolate donut filled with chocolate cream and topped with Vanilla icing. And shaped like a heart in this case… well it’s a Valentine’s thing I suppose.

I have to admit, the presentation is actually quite pleasing, the white on the black. Almost like a tuxedo look. Maybe I’m not classy enough to be reviewing this, I wonder if I should get my great great great great Grandfather Edmund Alister DiFolco in on this?

Edmund: “I dare say I shall be skipping this one dear grandson, this whole “Boston Cream” fiasco, sounds sketchy to me. I don’t usually trade familiarities with New Englandnites, bunch of pikers.”

Uh yes… thanks anyway. I guess it’s up to me then, I’ll just take a taste and we’ll see if its as good as I hope it to be.

*Om Nom Nom

This is pretty good! As you can see, the filling actually is pretty close in consistency to that of actual Boston Cream, only chocolate. I figured they were going to just go cheap and lazy and fill it with that chocolate icing you get in that cream donut they make there. It’s also not as sweet as I feared it would be, the sweetest thing about the whole donut would be the icing on top, as you would probably expect. All in all, this is a pretty good donut, you should give it a try while you still can. 8/10. I figured I’d like this one, I mean after I all I really do love chocolate, not sure if I ever mentioned that before…

Big D: “Oh for the love of… just end this already?”

Well on those words, that concludes another Laidback Gourmet. Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed the wackiness. Feel free to send any comments, suggestions for future reviews, or just a random “Hoi D” by emailing me at Until next time, I’m Ed DiFolco, your Laidback Gourmet, reminding you that I love chocolate.
