Donuts are a delight to have. The mini version of donuts at Dunkin Donuts, most popularly known as munchkins, is loved just as much as its larger counterparts.

The bite-sized donuts were introduced in the early 1970s and come in a variety of flavors. Most flavors mimic the taste of a large donut, but some are even better bite-size.

Holidays and seasons bring limited seasonal flavors, and innovative minds create new ones.

Dunkin Donuts Munchkins are one of my favorite mini treats to enjoy with a cup of coffee. I have tried the most intriguing flavors offered at the donut shop.

Popular Munchkin Flavors 

From classic to seasonal flavors, here are the most popular flavors.


Cinnamon Sugar Munchkins

French Toast, apple crisps, puff pastries, cinnamon rolls – the list of things we can make with cinnamon sugar is endless.

Cinnamon sugar is a popular flavor for many desserts and meals. There is no doubt why it is a favorite munchkin flavor.

The Cinnamon Sugar Munchkins are rolled into a cinnamon sugar mixture that creates a sweet delight.

The cinnamon spice is subtle and does not overwhelm your taste buds, while the cinnamon-flavored sugar adds a sweet flavor to a traditional munchkin.


Glazed Munchkins

Glazed munchkins are a reliable option that will never disappoint anyone. It is a simple yet soft, sweet donut hole treat.

The glazed coating on any dessert can make our mouths water. You can taste the sweetness just by the sight of a glazed munchkin.

There is no surprise it is among the list of popular munchkins. The mini version of the famous glazed donut is simple and sweet and the perfect replica.


Glazed Chocolate Munchkins

A classic chocolate flavor with a glaze coating makes the Glazed Chocolate Munchkins a signature favorite.

The combination of the best flavors – chocolate and glaze – is highly loved. Chocolate lovers adore the distinct chocolate flavor, and the added glaze coating makes it all the better.

Like most munchkins, the chocolate cake is soft and flavorful. The glaze gives it a sweeter taste many greatly appreciate.


Butternut Munchkins

Butterscotch fans rank the butternut munchkin flavor as one of the best munchkin flavors.

The Butternut flavored munchkins first gained popularity in the Philippines during the 1980s when it was first introduced.

The bright and unique orange color will capture your attention, but it is the flavorful and textured bite that will win over your taste buds.

The munchkins are made with a glaze coating and are topped with crispy butternut specks. The toppings make the bite crunchy on the outside while the inside remains soft and moist.

In the tiny treat, you get a bit of sweetness, a bite of crispiness, and a mouthful of flavor.


Old Fashioned Munchkins

You can never go wrong with anything old-fashioned. The original basic flavor keeps it simple with no added flavor or toppings.

Basic might sound flavorless, but the traditional flavor does not mean the old-fashioned munchkins are not tasty.

The old-fashioned munchkin is a satisfying bite you can dip into your favorite hot drink. Grab an old-fashioned munchkin as a side for your coffee or tea, and you will have the perfect, quick snack.

This munchkin only has 60 calories and is most loved by those who prefer a more neutral flavor.


Powdered Munchkins

Powdered sugar makes all desserts taste better. The powdered munchkins are just as good as the donut, and the snack tastes even better with coffee.

It is an unspoken rule to have a cup of Dunkin coffee beside the powdery munchkins. The powdered donut holes quickly became a popular flavor when someone discovered how well the treat pairs with coffee.

The powdered munchkin alone can make your mouth a bit dry. The coffee moistens the bite of powdery goodness to create the ideal munchkin flavor.

I have dunked my powdered munchkin in my cup of coffee for as long as I can remember. I can easily agree. It is the perfect complementary snack to my regular cup of joe.


Jelly Munchkins

Jelly donuts are the first to disappear from the box in my family.

The popular flavor has everyone fighting for the last jelly donut, and it is the first people will look for when reaching into a box of munchkins.

The bite-sized donut holes are filled with fruity jelly that gives the munchkin a nice balance of cake and sweet jelly, all in one tasty bite.

You can savor all the deliciousness of a classic jelly donut with one bite of a munchkin.

Get to the box first or head to Dunkin Donuts early because these munchkins are high in demand and always short on supply.


Pumpkin Munchkins

When the leaves turn brown, and the air becomes crisp, everyone runs to Dunkin Donuts for their seasonally available treats.

The fall season brings the best seasonal flavors, and pumpkin is one of the top flavors everywhere.

Pumpkin munchkins are a mixed blend of pumpkin spices added to the flavor of a sugary donut. The delicious treat sets the vibe for the fall season.

I put my booties on, grab my jacket, and run over to Dunkin Donuts to enjoy the seasonal bite-sized treat with my fall-favorite drink, a pumpkin-spiced latte.


Blueberry Munchkins

Blueberry munchkins are the most popular and highly praised donut hole.

The glaze and blueberry flavor are the greatest combinations of all munchkins. It is a balanced flavor of sweetness and berries. 

The blueberry munchkin can be hard to find. When I was finally able to get my hands on one, I tried the sugary berry flavor with a caramel swirl coffee, and it was one of the best pairings I have ever tried.

It is easy to understand why blueberry munchkins are hard to find and are one of the most popular flavors.
