Reader: Worst Thing Dunkin' Donuts Did? Open a Store in Denver!

Yesterday Dunkin' Donuts launched its version of the fading fad-tastic cronut, simply named the Croissant Donut. With the chain making a big comeback in Denver -- over a half-dozen stores have opened in the metro area over the past year, with more to come -- there are plenty of spots where you can grab one of these $2.49 goodies. But is it a goodie? Where will it land the next time Jenn Wohletz compiles a list of the best and worst Dunkin' Donuts inventions? See also: Five Best and Worst Things Dunkin' Donuts Has Ever Made Dunkin' Donuts has its fans -- but Daniel is definitely not one of them. As he says:
