Reviewing Dunkin’ Maple Frosted Coffee Roll, Trader Joe’s Maple Fudge & Cider Donuts, and More

by Victor Martelle

This snack review has Sweet Chaos Drizzled Pumpkin Spice Popcorn, Dunkin’ Donuts Maple Frosted Coffee Roll, Trader Joe’s Maples Flavored Fudge and Apple Cider Donuts, and Sweet Chick Mixed Berries Yogurt Chickpeas. The Dunkin’ Frosted Coffee Roll was a favorite of mine because of simply how sweet it was. However, the most disappointing was the Sweet Chaos Popcorn because of how off pumpkin tasting it was.


Sweet Chaos Drizzled Pumpkin Spice Popcorn

Score: 5.5 / 10

Front package of Sweet Chaos Drizzled Pumpkin Spice Popcorn.

Light, off tasting pumpkin spice with a semi crunchy, soft texture. There is a fairly bold pumpkin smell but it just doesn’t translate fully into the taste. It’s a little sweet overall.

Released around late Summer 2021 for the Fall season. This has been rereleased around the same time every year. Found at Dollar Tree.


Dunkin’ Donuts Maple Frosted Coffee Roll

Score: 9 / 10

Dunkin' Donuts maple frosted coffee roll on a table.

Sweet, mapley, and just barely a hint of coffee flavor. You have the standard doughy taste and texture of a Dunkin’ donut with a sweet inner cinnamon and glaze that is complemented and enhanced by the sweet, semi-thick maple frosting. Definitely not for those who aren’t fans of sweets!

Not sure when this was released. There’s also a more common chocolate frosted version.

Trader Joe’s Maple Flavored Fudge

Score: 6.5 / 10

Front box of Trader Joe's Maples Flavored Fudge.

Very sweet, noticable but light maple flavor. The flavor itself is mostly super sweet sugar which kind of overrides the maple flavor. Texture is crumbly compared to regular fudge and it isn’t as chewy either. It’s still relatively soft though, just falls apart a bit more.

Released September 2023, likely for a limited time.


Trader Joe’s Apple Cider Donuts

Score: 5.5 / 10

Box of Trader Joe's Apple Cider donuts.

A semi-sweet, unoffending donut. The cinnamon and sugar is extremely light making the donut semi-sweet at best. The texture is soft, a little moist, thick, and easy to bite through. The coating on the outside is a thick little mixture of sugar and cinnamon that gives it a very light crunch but is hardly sweet nor cinnamony. I don’t really taste any apple or cider either.

Likely first released in September 2021 for a limited time. These have been rereleased every year around the same period.


Sweet Chick Mixed Berries Yogurt Chickpeas Snacks

Score: 7 / 10

Front box of Sweet Chick Mixed Berries Yogurt Chickpeas Snacks.

Each little ball has a light, soft crunch. They’re easy to bite through and the taste is exactly as advertised too, having a creamy blueberry and yogurty taste that is both noticable and not overpowering. It’s on the sweeter side.

Not sure when these were released and I can’t find much about the company online. Found at Ocean State Job Lot.
