Dunkin’ Donuts is still making changes to its menu in many locations.

Now, they're set to say goodbye to a variety of doughnuts.

While it’s unclear which flavors are getting the axe, NBC 10 News was told the move is to improve quality.

In recent years, there’s been a rise in gourmet donut shops that focus on quality ingredients and unique flavors -- and Dunkin’ has taken notice.

The company noted that new options like "Maple Bacon" have sold well and they want to build on that.

Some stores will still carry a larger selection of 24 doughnut varieties, but they will still lose at least six flavors.

The changes will take place by the end of October.

Dunkin’ began offering a simplified menu in a limited number of markets during August.

Some of the items that were removed included all afternoon sandwiches; honey bran raisin and reduced-fat blueberry muffins; seven varieties of bagels; all bagel twists; danishes, as well as cookies and brownies.

Dunkin' said it will use feedback from customers, franchisees and employees to help guide future menu decisions.
