Dunkin’ Donuts Launches Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich

Dunkin’ Donuts Launches Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich

The products will be available through August

Dunkin’ Donuts has been on a tear recently, introducing new products faster than most can keep up. Their newest limited time offering is the Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich and Wrap, which comes with a pepper-flecked omelette, bacon, and white cheddar cheese.

According to Brand Eating, the new item launched on Monday, and the sandwich contains an omelette studded with jalapeño, red bell peppers, and habanero Pepper Jack cheese, two strips of bacon, and a slice of white Cheddar cheese on a bagel. The wrap version replaces the bagel with a flour tortilla, and uses half of the omelette, one strip of bacon, and a slice of white Cheddar.

The bagel sells for $3.79 and the wrap costs $1.69.

It appears as if the reason behind this launch is the fact that spicy is "in." "The Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich represents a familiar format — somewhat similar to some of the breakfast sandwiches on our permanent menu — but with a twist of hotter, bolder flavors," executive chef and vice president of product innovation Stan Frankenthaler told Brand Eating. "The spicy taste profile is definitely growing in popularity among consumers in the industry at large, and we thought this would be a great way to introduce it to our menu."

The sandwich contains 550 calories and 18 grams of fat, and the wrap contains 190 calories and 11 grams of fat.


Run to Dunkin for a spicy plant-based food breakfast sandwich

The new Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich is another reason to start your day with Dunkin. As a new year begins, many people look to make food changes. From Meatless Mondays to the flexitarian lifestyle, plant-based food menu options are on the rise. Dunkin&rsquos new menu item looks to set itself apart from the crowd.

The new Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich brings bold flavor to the table. Featuring the MorningStar Farms Black Bean Patty, the ingredient choice adds a depth of flavor to the breakfast sandwich.

Dara Schuster, Senior Director of Marketing, Plant Based Protein at Kellogg Company said, “The sandwich has a kick of heat from the MorningStar Farms Black Bean Patty, offering a flavorful breakfast sandwich that packs 26 grams of protein and celebrates real recognizable ingredients. Flexitarian eating is on the rise and we’re thrilled to deliver new menu items that can satisfy everyone.”

While Dunkin previously offered the Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, this new menu offering brings some approachable spice to the breakfast sandwich and is loaded with other nutrient dense ingredients. From spinach and bell peppers to aged white cheddar cheese, the breakfast sandwich features 26 grams of protein. It could keep you fueled all morning long.

As consumers want more plant-based food options, menus need to expand. More importantly, the menu choices need to offer flavors and food combinations that set themselves apart from other offerings. The new Dunkin breakfast sandwich seems to set that tone.

With the recent new coffee additions, it shows that Dunkin is making a point to focus on flavor. From robust coffee to this new breakfast sandwich, it seems that Dunkin is running toward bold flavors while still keeping food trends in mind. A plant-based food menu can deliver both.

What do you think will be the next food menu trend? Will it have you running to Dunkin?


Dunkin' Drops New Plant-Based Breakfast Sandwich in Partnership with Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg is droppin' a breakfast sandwich at Dunkin' like it's hot, and we've got the scoop on Snoop.

Snoop Dogg, an ambassador for and investor in Beyond Meat, is kicking off the new decade with a limited-time-only menu hack: the Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich. You may recall that Dunkin' added the Beyond Meat Sausage Sandwich to its menu nationwide in November—and now, for this week only, you can get Snoop Dogg's very own remix of the sandwich. The Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich will be available at Dunkin' stores across the United States from Monday, January 13, to Sunday, January 19.

So, what exactly does the cleverly named Beyond D-O-Double G Sandwich look like? The sandwich includes a Beyond Breakfast Sausage patty layered with cheese and egg, all in between a sliced glazed donut. The rapper says Dunkin's glazed donuts are his favorite, so he wanted to find a way to combine his love for pillowy sweets with his passion for plant-based "meats."

What's more, there's a tie-in line of merchandise to go with the launch. The Beyond Collection of exclusive apparel from Dunkin' and Snoop will be available later this month. The line will include a green tracksuit embellished with the phrase "Glazzzed for Days" on the back and the word "Glazzzzy" printed down the leg. Other items include a bomber jacket, t-shirts, and a beanie.


Dunkin' Is Giving Out Free Breakfast Sandwiches As Part Of Its 'Beyond Bash'

Breakfast can be a hard meal to really enjoy if you're a late sleeper or are always on-the-go. Thankfully, we have places like Dunkin' that make eating breakfast quick, affordable, and delicious. Today and tomorrow Dunkin' is making breakfast easy by giving out free breakfast sandwich samples to customers for its "Beyond Bash."

While picking up your morning coffee, you can also try out a Dunkin' breakfast sandwich while supplies last. The whole menu isn't up for grabs though, and the samples are only of Dunkin's Beyond Sausage sandwich. This sandwich features the plant-based Beyond Sausage patty, with egg and American cheese on an English muffin.

The Beyond Sausage sandwich has 10 grams of plant-based protein, 29% less total fat, and 33% less saturated fat. To try out the sandwich for yourself free of charge, you just need to hit up Dunkin' from 8a.m. to 10 a.m on January 24 and January 25. Like most special offers, only select locations are participating so make sure you check if the Dunkin' you frequent is one of them.

This offer comes soon after the announcement of Dunkin's new menu item inspired by Snoop Dogg, the Beyond D-O-Double-G sandwich. Similar to the Beyond Sausage sandwich, Snoop's version comes with Beyond sausage, egg, and cheese, but this is all stuffed between two glazed donuts. It kind of sounds. good?

Dunkin' also confirmed on their site that along with Snoop's sandwich and the free sample promotion, there will be more to come this month, including Snoop Dogg x Dunkin' merch. Honestly, this is all a lot to take in, but if you haven't tried Dunkin's Beyond Sausage yet there's no time like the present. Get after it!!


We Tried Dunkin's Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich&mdashHere's What We Thought

I, an unabashed meat-eater, would typically have no business marching my ass up to the Dunkin' counter to request a Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich. Why would I opt for plant-based when I've got zero qualms about the real thing? But as the dedicated Delish staffer that I am, I knew I owed it to the people (i.e. you!) to give this one a try.

In case you somehow missed the buzz, Dunkin' debuted its Beyond Meat partnership Wednesday, July 24 with a New York-based launch. So when Thursday morning rolled around, my growling stomach and I rolled up to a nearby location and proudly requested the vegan breakfast sandwich.

The cashier, outfitted in a green "BYND DNKN'" tee smiled with a sense of pride when I placed my order. A fellow employee offered up a sample of the sandwich while I waited, but I wanted my first bite to be more momentous, so I passed.

I ran back to the office, and ripped into the bag, retrieving my Beyond Sausage sandwich like treasure. I'm gonna level with you though, when I unwrapped it, my excitement sort of flatlined. It didn't look bad per se, just not great. The "meat" looked nearly identical to normal meat, but the sandwich as a whole looked a little meh.

After taking approximately 135 photos (because

) I went in for my first bite. And here's where I eat my words, because my first bite quickly turned into two, then three, four, and then there were no bites left to take. Could Dunkin' have possibly misheard my order? THIS WAS REAL SAUSAGE, right? It had to be. But spoiler alert, guys, it wasn't. Beyond Meat, and more specifically the Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, is just that good. The taste, the texture&mdashit was all so good.

Will I be giving up meat completely to live a life of plant-based eating? Absolutely not. But will I order the Dunkin' sandwich again? Absolutely YAS.


A Journey to the Center of a Spicy Dunkin’ Donut

We should have known this was coming. It was portended by a series of inauspicious omens throughout the year. The wildfires in Australia. The skies in California turning a dreadful shade of orange in September. The harrowing ordeal Christopher Nolan endured trying to make sure people saw Tenet on the big screen. Perhaps Tom Brady’s move to Tampa Bay should have given us the hint that whatever unholy development loomed would originate in New England, much like the official coffee of Ben Affleck’s highly scrutinized walks with Ana de Armas.

Last week, Dunkin’ (née Dunkin’ Donuts), added a spicy donut to its menu.

Ostensibly, the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is part of the chain’s slate of Halloween promotional items, along with a decorate your own donut kit, a (pretty tasty) pumpkin donut, and their Spider Donut (the “spider” being a decorative design, not an ingredient). But we all know why the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut really exists: because the world is in a state of chaos where few norms remain intact and fewer boundaries sacrosanct. The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut was, in retrospect, all but inevitable.

The ‘Great British Baking Show’ Is Broken. Here’s a Five-Point Plan to Fix It.

But how could we have predicted this specific manifestation of dark energy? A donut infused with the world’s spiciest pepper might seem at home in one of the upscale donutoriums that have sprung up over the last several years in the wake of the collapsing cupcake-based economy. You know, the kinds of places that might call their employees “doughtenders” and feature adventurous flavors like Cookies & Cream & Cardamom or Raspberry Bone Marrow. But a ghost-pepper-infused donut from Dunkin’?

Yes, offering a spicy ghost pepper donut is technically within the chain’s purview, in the same way Dunkin’ could conceivably decide to serve individually brewed cups of single origin pour-over coffee. But doing so seems to violate the spirit of Dunkin’ and its ethos of get in and get out. The slogan, after all, is “America runs on Dunkin’,” not “America sits down for a while and enjoys Dunkin’.” Unless you are one of each location’s obligatory klatch of four to eight old men who dominate the seating area from opening until mid-morning, the tables and chairs are for show, as ornamental as your grandmother’s decorative soaps, or the tuba on the wall of a TGI Friday’s. Picture a novelist encamped at a square Dunkin’ table, nursing a single cup of coffee for hours while toiling over a manuscript. It can’t be imagined without also envisioning an adult bully subsequently knocking their laptop off the table with a cardboard cutout of Rob Gronkowski or Eli Manning.

It’s not that the clientele doesn’t want more adventurous food, it’s just not what one goes to this particular establishment for. The options at Dunkin’ are designed to be devoured, not savored. Even its (excellent, I will say) Beyond Sausage breakfast sandwich, a recent addition to the menu, fits the theme of convenience. It’s an on-the-go meal for people who want to do more for the environment and animal rights but don’t care that much about eating vegetables. In short, my kind of people.

I am an unapologetic Dunkin’ fan, even though I’m more likely to call it Dunks or Dunkies, or even the original “Dunkin’ Donuts,” refusing to acknowledge its changing identity the same way my dad gives driving directions according to New England landmarks that were demolished 25 years ago. I love that a large Dunkin’ iced coffee is twice as big as the biggest cold brew you can get from a fancier chain, and cheaper too. I love that ordering your coffee “regular” means with cream and sugar, for some reason. My hometown of Stoneham, Massachusetts, now has six Dunkin’ locations, all technically walkable from the house where I grew up. If loving the chain isn’t technically in my blood, it at least permeated the air I breathed during my formative years.

Dunkin’ iced coffee, which I drink year-round like a true Masshole, is the standard against which I judge all other coffee. Not because it’s the best, but because it was my first coffee, and it laid the blueprint for what all iced coffee should be: voluminous, not too strong, and doctored liberally with creamer and sweetener, sometimes against your explicit wishes. When I taught preschool in my 20s, early mornings at work after late nights out were enabled by a large Dunkin’ iced coffee that propped my eyes open. I own Dunkin’ sneakers (a collaboration with Saucony). Somehow, through sheer Bostonian kismet, I’ve lived for nine years in New York City, and never more than one block from a Dunkin’ outpost. It’s like New York’s embassy to me, specifically. If Dunkin’ puts a new item on the menu, I am obligated—nay, destined—to try it. (Except of course the short-lived tuna salad croissant, because I do not want to leave my wife a widow out of fealty to a coffee chain.)

Last Friday morning I used the proprietary Dunkin’ app, which of course I already had on my phone, to order a Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut along with my usual iced coffee. By the time I arrived to pick up my order, the coffee was ready, but the donut was gone. “Was the pastry itself a ghost?” I wondered. I didn’t complain, figuring that anyone who would steal a single Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut wanted it more than I did. To avoid the morning rush I came back a few hours later and paid for a second donut, which I brought home to eat because, again, you don’t linger in a Dunkin’.

The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is not as visually frightening as its name suggests. It looks like a regular strawberry frosted donut (a Homer Simpson donut, if that helps), but with a dusting of bright red sugar sprinkled on top of the frosting to suggest: Danger! This donut bites back! At first, it tastes pretty much like a regular strawberry frosted donut, too, which is to say it is alarmingly sweet.

Then, after the sweetness fades, the spice emerges. It’s not an aftertaste exactly. It’s more like a second, separate taste. There is no real synergy between the two flavors. It’s just one … and then the other. Imagine a Dropkick Murphys song that ends with a flamenco breakdown. (The Dropkick Murphys, by the way, are also from Boston. That’s actually the moral of Martin Scorsese’s 2006 film The Departed.)

At the very least, it’s a fascinating experience. Even though it’s not complementary to the donut’s sweetness, the level of heat is, strangely, perfect. It falls halfway between a lie (“This isn’t even spicy!”) and a dare (“It’s free if you can finish the whole thing!”). My wife, after taking a bite, wondered how many spicy donuts one could eat before tapping out. And that’s it exactly: The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut feels engineered to be consumed en masse as part of a donut-eating challenge between high school students, or a technically-not-abuse fraternity initiation ritual. That said, I have to imagine that the lingering warm sensation pairs terribly with hot coffee or even “the morning” in general. But other than that, eating one is pretty enjoyable.

The triumph of the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut isn’t so much that it’s good—it’s that it is. The donut is an existential triumph. As the COVID-19 pandemic has forced so many of us into rigid routines for economic survival and physical safety, it was exciting to try something weird and new, to feel an unexpected feeling. In a year defined by escalating and inevitable bad news, it felt exciting to experience something inscrutable, in a way that was fun rather than terrifying. Do I like the taste of the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut? I think so. Did I enjoy eating it? Yes, definitely. I had one on Friday and another on Sunday, and I’ll probably have at least one more before they disappear from the menu in December.

The Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut isn’t primarily a food item at all. It’s an experience, an activity. For $1.50, you can excuse yourself momentarily from your daily life and allow a strange pastry to overwhelm your consciousness. The sensory experience, sure, but also the underlying questions about it. At what occasion or time of day am I supposed to eat this donut, ideally? Is it Halloween-themed because it has the word “Ghost” in the name? Is Fred the Baker, also known as the Time to Make the Donuts Guy, currently rolling over in his grave? Do I enjoy this? Do I hate it? It’s something to sit with in all its puzzling imperfection, to mull over, to talk about with friends. It’s like HBO’s The Vow for your mouth.

In a year full of unexpected and ongoing challenges, fraught with so much uncertainty, it is a genuine relief to feel puzzled by something so low-stakes. As long as I’m focused on the gentle burn of the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut, I’m not focusing on the presidential election or the fact that I haven’t been able to visit my parents in almost a year on account of a global health crisis. It even, for a brief and lovely blink of time, blots out the fact that Mookie Betts is currently playing in the World Series for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Dunkin’ Donuts launches glazed doughnut bacon sandwich

Stop the presses and alert all cardiovascular surgeons. Dunkin Donuts is launching a new breakfast sandwich Friday, and it’s on a doughnut.

Yes, the doughnut chain has in its own words “gone and changed breakfast forever. Again.”

The new sandwich consists of slices of bacon and a well-peppered fried egg between two halves of a glazed donut. But they left out the cheese. What gives, Dunkin’ Donuts?

The sandwich is listed on the company’s website as having 360 calories and 20 grams of fat. But that’s not the most caloric thing on the breakfast menu -- not by far.

The breakfast chain also serves a Big N’ Toasted sandwich on buttery Texas toast with an egg, cheese and bacon. This sandwich comes in at 530 calories, while the sausage, egg and cheese croissant sandwich has 620 calories.

It’s safe to say that if Homer Simpson were real, he’d be doing somersaults outside of Moe’s Tavern.

Would you try the new doughnut sandwich? Let us know in the comments below.


There are situations in life when a La Croix just won’t do—summer celebrations, Tuesday night online trivia, and really stressful work afternoons when it’s close enough to five o’clock, just to name a few. These occasions call for something stronger. Thank goodness for canned alcohol. What sounds like a frat party beverage has evolved into a spa day splurge. We’re raising a can to salute these eight vegan-friendly cocktails, wines, and hard kombuchas that have raised our spirits during times of stress and celebration.
