How Much Is A Dozen Donuts At Dunkin Donuts? (Upd 2023)

Dunkin Donuts is the best! I love it all - from the coffee to the breakfast items to the fresh and tasty donuts. If I could have Dunkin Donuts every day, I would.

However, my wallet is not a Dunkin fan, and I need to stay conscious of my monthly budget.

To keep my bank account and my cravings happy, I have factored in how much money a dozen donuts at Dunkin Donuts will cost me.[1]

After researching, I realized that the price for a box of Dunkin Donuts could vary from store to store.

Read on to discover everything I have learned about buying Dunkin Donuts by the dozen and the best ways to order my favorite treats.

A dozen donuts at Dunkin Donuts will usually cost anywhere from $11.88 to $17.99. This cost varies, depending on the types of donuts ordered, as well as the specific Dunkin location. 

Let’s get into the specifics, because no one wants to pay more than expected! 

Key Takeaways:
  • Dunkin Donuts prices vary, depending on type and size
  • Dunkin offers many different flavors, including seasonal flavors and Munchkin bites.
  • There are plenty of ways to save money on doughnuts at Dunkin

1. Dozen Of Assorted Donuts

The price will cost between $10-$15 for a box of one dozen donuts depending on certain flavors - the simple donut flavors will be cheaper than boxes full of seasonal delicious flavors, for example.

If you get to the store early enough, you'll likely be able to choose 12 different flavors!

I tend to pay around $13 at my local store, which is absolutely worth it. However, I went traveling recently and paid $15 for one dozen.

This is to be expected in big cities like New York or Washington, but it still caught me off-guard.

A dozen box of classic Dunkin Donuts is a treasure trove of deliciousness, especially paired with a healthy low-calorie Dunkin drink or a fresh brewed coffee.

There are a wide variety of Dunkin Donuts flavors to choose from: 

Boston Kreme Pie, Vanilla Frosted, Chocolate Frosted,  Strawberry Frosted, Chocolate-Glazed Cake, Glazed, Cruller, Sour Cream, Powdered Sugar, Old-Fashioned, Coconut, Boston Kreme Pie, Bavarian Kreme-Filled, Chocolate Kreme-Filled, Blueberry, Apple-Crumb, Marble-Frosted, Jelly, Cinnamon Sugar

2. Dozen Bagels

A dozen bagels cost between $10-$24 depending on the type you order and where from. A bagel's individual price is around $1.50, and six can cost around $5.99.[2]

Bagels are a classic breakfast choice across the world. They are so flexible and make a great option for a weekend brunch.

Dunkin offers a wide selection of flavors and types to satisfy customers who want an alternative to breakfast sandwiches.

I love a simple cream cheese in the morning, especially if I can add some smoked salmon to it.

However, I'll never say no to a fancier one with all the trimmings - especially if given to me by my partner with a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee.

3. Dozen Munchkins

How much is a dozen munchkins? A dozen donut holes at Dunkin Donuts will cost you around $3.50.[3

A 25-piece munchkin box is around $5.99, which is an even better deal! 

It’s surprising how affordable these are considering how delicious they are!

They come in glazed, glazed chocolate, jelly, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and blueberry glaze. 

However, the blueberry munchkins are absolutely legendary! They’re by far the most popular, followed by the chocolate and glazed munchkins. 

My personal favorites are the blueberry, jelly, and pumpkin (seasonal flavor) munchkins!

The blueberry flavor is super soft and cake-like, which I love.

4. Dozen Muffins

You can expect to pay around $10-$20 when you order a dozen muffins from Dunkin.

Dunkin offers both the classic sweet style muffins and English muffin options for hungry customers.

These are always a hit with my family when we do brunch at home.

I'm not always an early bird, which can affect exactly what muffins I can choose for my box.

As the day goes on and more local Dunkin fans flock to get their treat, my local store can run out of some of my favorites - make sure to order ahead or get in early to have your pick of the tasty litter.
