Dunkin' Donuts Nutrition Facts

Dunkin Donuts

Verywell / Christian Alzate

Are donuts your guilty pleasure? If your favorite fast-food spot is Dunkin Donuts, don't worry. Believe it or not, Dunkin' Donuts nutrition isn’t all bad. You can make your trip to Dunkin' Donuts (sort of) healthy.

We wouldn’t necessarily recommend regular visits to any fast food restaurant if you want to lose weight. But if you go to Dunkin' Donuts once in a while, you can keep your diet on track by choosing the lowest calorie donut and food choices.

Check Dunkin' Donuts Calories

You're not likely to find truly healthy food at a donut shop, no matter which donut shop you visit. But you can still make better choices.

  • Plan ahead: Your best bet is to check the menu online before you go and then choose a small donut with water or black coffee to satisfy your sweet tooth.
  • Keep it simple: If you don't have time to check the restaurant's website, keep in mind that donuts with multiple toppings and creme fillings are most likely to have more calories.
  • Portions matter: Size makes a big difference too. Some donuts, like the Glazed Stick, are very large.

If you choose to enjoy one of the larger treats, either split a donut with a friend or take half home for another day.
