If your idea of an indulgent breakfast is a bagel you might want to look away now – Dunkin’ Donuts in the US is rolling out its latest breakfast menu item – the glazed donut breakfast sandwich.
Only in America!
The ‘sandwich’ comes with fried eggs and bacon with a split glazed donut replacing the bread. Even more bizarrely, the chain reports that the sandwich is only 360 calories. Surely they jest?
The new breakfast item comes when most other fast-food chains are introducing more health-conscious items to appeal to a wider range of customers.
On the other hand, Dunkin’ Donuts might be bucking the trend after Taco Bell’s hugely successful Doritos Locos Tacos – a taco made with Doritos for the shell.
It’s not a completely original idea though. New York restaurant Burger Bistro has been selling donut burgers for months. That’s right, a beef burger complete with bacon, egg and cheese…but with a glazed donut instead of a bun.
We can’t decide if this is the ultimate guilty pleasure or just completely unnecessary!
