It’s official—vegan donuts have arrived at Dunkin’!
But, unfortunately, they’re not available in the U.S. The international chain launched the vegan donuts in the Netherlands. The company announced it on Instagram: “Yes, your prayers have been heard. From today on you can order more than 40 (!!!) vegan donuts.”
Dunkin’ Netherlands is the first Dunkin’ in the world to offer vegan donuts, according to the company. Customers can currently order the vegan donut range online.
Offerings include the vegan Chocolate Rainbow with colored sprinkles and a Chocolate Chip donut. The latter features a cookies and cream filling and chocolate icing. The range also includes a vegan Stuffed Strawberry and a Peanut Butter and Jelly donut.
According to the company’s website, the vegan donuts will be available in-store mid-May. According to the website, Dunkin’ Netherlands also has plans to expand the plant-based range: “It doesn’t stop here. Many more vegan donuts will follow soon so that the range can be expanded considerably.”
Dunkin’s Vegan Menu
When will other Dunkin’ locations get vegan donuts? CEO, David Hoffmann, hinted at vegan donuts when asked about it during a shareholders meeting in May 2020: “As it relates to a vegan donut, we continue to investigate a viable vegan donut option. We are looking at it closely.”
The launch in the Netherlands isn’t the chain’s first vegan offering. In 2019, Dunkin’ became the first quick-service restaurant to carry Beyond Meat’s Beyond Breakfast Sausage. After testing the plant-based meat in Manhattan, the company launched its Beyond Breakfast Sandwich, which includes egg and cheese on an English muffin, nationwide.
In 2020, Dunkin’ also added Planet Oat vegan oat milk to its menu nationwide after launching almond milk in 2014. Customers can order any Dunkin’ beverage with either plant-based milk.
Earlier this year, the chain upped its vegan breakfast offerings by adding avocado toast to the menu. It also launched its new vegetarian Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich, which features MorningStar Farms’ black bean patty. While it’s not vegan—it contains an egg white omelet and cheese—the company acknowledged the meatless sandwich is a good way for flexitarians to reduce their meat intake.
