Dunkin' taking doughnut bacon sandwich national

NEW YORK (AP) - Even as fast-food chains tout their healthy offerings, they're also coming up with fatty new treats to keep customers interested. Case in point: Dunkin' Donuts is adding a doughnut breakfast sandwich to its national menu this week.

The sandwich, which comes with fried eggs and bacon between a split glazed doughnut, will become a part of the permanent menu starting Friday, which the chain claims is "National Donut Day."

Dunkin' Donuts had tested the sandwich in select stores in eastern Massachusetts in April, creating considerable buzz online.

Notably, Dunkin' Donuts says the doughnut sandwich clocks in at 360 calories, less than the 390 calories for the turkey sausage sandwich it recently introduced for people looking to eat better.
