Food manufacturing giant Dunkin’ Donuts is all set to introduce a new delicacy on its breakfast menu. The donuts maker will be introducing its sugary and salty Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich on June 7, 2013. Photo of the breakfast item will hit the menu in the US on June 7, 2013, but has already grabbed more than 1,000 comments and more than 11,000 likes on the social networking site Facebook.
The company claims that the new item performed well with customers in testing stages and features pepper-fried eggs and cherrywood-smoked bacon which is stashed between two halves of glazed donuts. The company calls the sandwich a ‘smorgasbord’, while Twitter and Facebook users prefer to perceive it as the ultimate hangover breakfast or the new ‘heroine’ or ‘heaven’.
The latest product by Dunkin’ Donuts has 360 calories and 720 milligrams of sodium, which means that it has less calories than McDonalds’s Big Mac and is also a bit less salty than KFC’s Honey BBQ sandwich. Moreover, for those who prefer something lighter in calories, Dunkin’ Donuts also offers the DDSMART menu, featuring low-calorie options like 280-calorie Egg White Veggie Flatbread. The launch of the breakfast sandwich coincides with the National Donut Day, during which the donut giant will offer customers a free donut with any beverage purchase.
