Dunkin' Donuts' new low-fat apple caramel muffin

Elissa  Elan reports in Nation’s Restaurant News that Dunkin’ Donuts debuted its fall menu this week, which includes three new items: a low-fat apple caramel muffin, a spiced apple twist and a pumpkin-coffee flavored Coolatta blended beverage.

Returning items to Dunkin’s fall menu include a pumpkin doughnut, a pumpkin muffin, fall-theme Munchkins doughnut hole treats, a Fall Harvest yeast ring doughnut, a pumpkin latte and pumpkin coffee.

Dunkin’ said that the new muffin has 3 grams of fat and 25-percent fewer calories, sugar and sodium than comparable items. It sells for $1.39. The spiced apple twist, which is available at Dunkin’s New England stores only, contains apple filling and has swirled icing on top. Paired with a medium coffee, it sells for $2.99.

The small, 16-ounce version of the pumpkin-coffee Coolatta sells at $1.99.

The menu will run for a limited time only through Nov. 26, at participating restaurants across the country.
