Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Cookies Review

Longtime readers might remember my (too long neglected) Is It Worth It category in which I do consumer reviews on items and companies. Two very popular entries in that series were reviews of the Dunkin Donuts Flatbread Sandwiches and their lower calorie cousins, the DD Smart Flatbread Sandwiches. As detailed in the original entries, the sandwiches I had tried earned my WORTH IT rating. Just talking about those sandwiches makes me want to get one!

Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the new Dunkin Donuts Gingerbread Cookies.

First, let’s look at the positive points about the cookies.

– They are nicely shaped as gingerbread men.
– They are a large size.
– The decorative icing is placed well.
– The cookies were soft with a good consistency.

With all those compliments, you might be wondering what I didn’t like about the gingerbread cookies.

It was the most important criterion – the taste – or more accurately, the lack thereof. I purchased two cookies and neither one had any taste at all! They were completely bland I know it’s a cliché, but they tasted like cardboard.

I immediately wondered if they had actually put any ginger, cinnamon, or other spices in the mix! I also would have expected the cookie to at least taste sweet considering the sugar in the cookie dough as well as in the icing.

I was so disappointed in them. Without any taste, there was just no point in eating them. Unless I somehow had cookies from a bad batch (which I doubt since I have always found the taste of DD items to be amazingly consistent among locations and over time), I don’t know how they ever made it through the extensive product testing process.

Overall, I think these gingerbread cookies would make cute decorations for the Christmas tree or cute accessories as part of a holiday table display. However, they fall far short of a tasty holiday treat.
