Dunkin Donuts has started offering a gluten-free fudge brownie in addition to its new line of under $2 menu items.
This is Dunkin Donuts’ first nationwide foray into the $2 billion gluten-free market. They previously tried gluten-free donuts, but the donuts were only available in a few stores.
The new fudge brownie is individually wrapped and now available at over 8,500 participating stores across the United States.
According to Dunkin’ Donuts’ U.S. Chief Marketing Officer Tony Weisman, “We know that the ‘Dunkin’ Run’ is a daily part of many of our guests’ lives as they keep themselves and their friends running, so we’re excited to launch a new menu offering fresh ways to satisfy any craving any time of day. We also recognize the importance of providing alternative choices for people with dietary restrictions or who choose a gluten-free diet, which is why we’re pleased our new menu offers guests a gluten-free Fudge Brownie, which is so chewy and delicious we think everyone will love it.”1
It is great to see another large chain offer gluten-free fare. As more people are diagnosed with gluten-related disorders and gluten-free foods continue to improve in quality and taste, this trend is bound to continue.
We hope donuts come next. Could you imagine if all Dunkin Donuts’ donuts were gluten-free?
