Dunkin Donuts is testing glazed donut sandwich, a new kind of breakfast sandwich featuring two crisp slices of bacon and a “pepper fried egg”.
The new menu item is appearing in select eastern Massachusetts outlets, according to Dunkin Donuts.
The glazed donut sandwich is said to be a shockingly low 360 calories according to a Dunkin’ spokeswoman speaking to the Atlantic Wire.
Adding up the ingredients, one regular glazed donut according to their website is approximately 260 calories leaving a figured 100 calories’ room for the bacon and egg.
Dunkin Donuts aren’t any set plans to expand the glazed donut sandwich nationally as of yet, however, with reviews of the item still coming in according to the company.
“We are pleased with the response so far, however, we cannot share any specific sales data. That said, the product has only been in restaurants for two days so we have limited information available,” a Dunkin’ spokesperson told the Wire.
The glazed donut sandwich would be sold at a suggested retail price of $2.99.
Such an item isn’t exactly new, however, at least for other food outlets.
Paula Deen’s The Lady’s Brunch Burger features two Krispy Kreme doughnuts as the buns around layers of ground beef, eggs and bacon.
Other items like donut ice cream sandwiches have been seen at smaller eateries around the country.
