Dunkin Donuts is Coming Out With A Donut-Breaded Sandwich and I'm Horrified

Posted By on Mon, Jun 3, 2013 at 3:53 PM

If you woke up this morning to your bowl of Special K Red Berries thinking "man, I sure would love to eat something that would horrify my great-grandparents," then it appears you're not alone: it appears that, in an attempt to sooth the grumbling bellies of people like you (and other fans of Man V. Food) Dunkin Donuts is unveiling the breakfast sandwich equivalent to Frankenstein's Monster:

Interestingly enough though, those seeking to break their previous calorie-bomb consumption records will be sorely disappointed, according to the Associated Press:

Dunkin’ Donuts says the “Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich” clocks in at 360 calories, which is less than the 390 calories for the turkey sausage sandwich it recently introduced for people looking to eat better.

Of course, the calories are coming from bacon strips, an egg and a fried, glazed, then split-in-half donut, so any you might expect to receive from said sandwich could probably be considered relatively close to nil.

Besides, if you want a calorie-bomb of a sandwich, you'd probably be better off heading down Fourth Avenue to Lindy's on 4th for their Fat Bastard, which consists of a fried egg, bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo between two honey buns.

I wouldn't recommend you do that too often though. Just saying.

(Eating that burger that is, not going to Lindy's. Go there early and often because damn, those are some good tots.)
