Dunkin' Donuts vegan options

Where I live (Southern California), Dunkin' Donut houses are popping up everywhere.

Dunkin' Donuts actually has a vegan webpage that lists their vegan options: https://news.dunkindonuts.com/intern...eet%202016.pdf

Bad News:
- Their donuts aren't vegan.

Good News:
- Almost all of their bagels are vegan.
- Their hash browns, English muffins, flatbread, and French rolls are all vegan.
- When ordered with almond milk, their lattes, macchiatos, and chilled Coffee Coolattas are all vegan.
- Their strawberry and orange Coolatta frozen beverages are vegan.
- All Flavor Shots are vegan.

Thanks for the info! Now I can finally get vegan bagels to bring home! There are no vegan bagels to be found here where I live for some reason. Also, were Dunkin Donuts not common in California? I thought they have been everywhere in the US for 4 or 5 decades...

I'm not so sure that a vegan should eat anything sold at Dunkin' Donut houses. In any case, before you eat a bagel there, perhaps you should check this out: http://www.eatthis.com/5-grossest-ad...s-youre-eating

Thomas brand plain bagels might be vegan (the only question is the minute amount of sugar in the ingredients). The mono and diglycerides in them are vegetable based. And they do not have L Cysteine in them.

I'm not a fan of fast food restaurant chains myself and have avoided them for years (since long before I went vegan). But I still think it is a good thing that more and more of them are offering plant based options, which means fewer animal based options. The more plant based options these places offer, the less demand for animal based products. I have to wonder which came first though, the rise of fast food and large grocery chains, or factory farming, and how much the two have influenced one another.

Oh trust me, I am aware of such stuff. I have been vegan for 5 years, and I avoid foods with all of the animal derived additives. The bagels I find around here I do buy because they include of the following: L-cysteine, Datum, "enzymes", honey, lard/tallow, mono/diglycerides, as well as others. I simply cannot find simple vegan bagel... Last time I checked, a bagel was supposed to be, flour, water, leavening, salt. Period. Oh well.

Thomas's plain bagels (At least those- maybe some flavors?) are vegan-

ENRICHED WHEAT FLOUR [FLOUR, MALTED BARLEY FLOUR, REDUCED IRON, NIACIN, THIAMIN MONONITRATE (VITAMIN B1), RIBOFLAVIN (VITAMIN B2), FOLIC ACID], WATER, SUGAR, YEAST, WHEAT GLUTEN, SALT, CORNMEAL, CALCIUM PROPIONATE AND SORBIC ACID (TO PRESERVE FRESHNESS), MONOGLYCERIDES, CELLULOSE GUM, CITRIC ACID, XANTHAN GUM, SOY LECITHIN.

They address the monoglycerides in the FAQ are vegetable

Dunkin Donuts bagel ingredients do appear to be vegan:

Also, Dunkin Donuts explicitly says that their bagels are vegan: https://news.dunkindonuts.com/intern...eet%202016.pdf . If this is not true, then they are risking a lawsuit.
