Airport Breakfastary Food - III

Part the Second

General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, Boston, MA
(Sunday, 09/11/16) 


Place: Dunkin' Donuts
Location: Terminal C (near Gate C20), Logan International Airport, Boston, MA
Hours: open at 5:00am
Meal: a Reese's® Peanut Butter Square and a Jelly Donut (the sugar-dusted kind); and a medium (14 oz) cuppa Original Roast

This is (finally) the last of my 'blog-entries from my Cape Code/Massachusetts vacation (from over a week ago now). 

Whenever I go through Logan Airport (either coming or going), I always make sure to stop by one of the Dunkin' Donuts kiosks there. The first thing I did when I landed the week before (on Saturday, September 3rd), even before collecting my luggage, was to get a medium cuppa their Original Roast and a Boston Kreme Donut. Because I had an extra early flight outta Boston on Sunday (sorry for the 5:00am wake-up call, Kerry) there were not many other options available for a quick breakfast, anyway.

This breakfast (if two doughnuts and a cuppa can really be called a "breakfast") was completely premeditated. My brother Sean had told me about their Reese's® Peanut Butter Square (which was one of their seasonal "Get Them While It's Fall." specials, along with Caramel Apple Croissant Donut and Pumpkin Muffin) and I knew right away that I was going to pair it along with one of their jelly doughnuts to make it a PB&J two-fer on my way back outta Boston.

Other than the sugar-bomb overkill, this wasn't really that bad for an early morning intake. However, calling these "Jelly" doughnuts may be juuuust a bit of a stretch. Hoo-boy! Nowhere on their web-site does it specify which flavour "jelly" is used. I have always assumed that it was strawberry (or possibly raspberry) jelly from the red colour. However, this is the actual list of ingredients:

"Jelly Filling: Corn Syrup, Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup[1], Sugar, Apple Juice Concentrate, Contains 2% or less of each of the following: Pectin, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate (Preservatives), Locust Bean Gum, Red 40, Blue 2, Caramel Color, Natural and Artificial Flavor"

Ummm, yeah, do you see where they mention any actual strawberries or raspberries at all?

Well, I sure hope that their Coffee[2] included some actual Coffee beans in it, at least...

Glen Bacon Scale Rating
Reese's® Peanut Butter Square ~ 6.1;
"Jelly" Donut ~ 5.9;
Original Roast ~ 6.4


1. It's really a shame that they use High Fructose Corn Syrup as an ingredient in their doughnuts. I grew up on Dunkin' Donuts and whenever I am back in Massachusetts, I always like to stop by for a few of their doughnuts. I may have to reconsider that now... 


2. Just in case you were curious like me:

"INGREDIENTS: Brewed 100% Arabica Coffee."
