When Dunkin' Donuts unleashed the Eggs Benedict sandwich ($3.59) on the world earlier this month, I naturally knew that I'd have to find a way to shove it in my facehole. Quickly.

Instead of seeing the Dunkin Donuts Red Velvet Latte as a coffee drink with flavor syrup in it, I prefer to look at it as a pink hot chocolate with caffeine. See how easy that was?
Dunkin' Donuts has a new pumpkin pie doughnut just in time for fall, but it's missing a key ingredient: pumpkin.
Dunkin' Donuts' latest breakfast sandwich twist proves poorly designed but salvageable...if you're willing to break the rules.
Dunkin' Donuts is putting summer in the box with two seasonal flavors, offering Lemonade and Key Lime in donut form for a limited time. We gave them a try.
When it comes to sweet, minty, St. Patrick's Day-inspired fast food drinks, most folks channel their excitement toward the Shamrock Shake from McDonald's. But the new Lucky Mint Coolatta ($3 for a small, pictured) from Dunkin' Donuts gives that green drink a run for its money.
For Valentine's Day this year, Dunkin' Donuts has introduced the Brownie Batter Donut ($0.99). We gave it a try.
The new Dunkin Donuts Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich appeals to my glutton-on-a-diet sensibilities on multiple fronts. For starters, I've long since made peace with turkey sausage as an acceptable facsimile of the better, porkier version.
Dunkin' Donuts released a festive new treat for the holiday season: red velvet drizzle donuts. We stopped by to see how this crimson-colored treat stacked up.
Dunkin Donuts gives apple pie a second attempt with a new, "homestyle" version. Despite our less than stellar experience in the past, we gave it a try.
Good morning, Serious Eaters! Are you sick of tacos yet? I'm sick of tacos. I like eating them but I'm tired of having them shoved down my throat. I prefer burritos, which is tough luck now that tacos have taken over the stuff-in-a-tortilla market at lunch, dinner, and dessert; let's hurry up and talk about breakfast burritos before the taco thugs storm the morning, too.
When we heard that Dunkin' Donuts had changed their bagel formula and rebranded the product as "artisanal," we were keen to try them and see if maybe, just maybe, they'd be a cut above the bagels they used to bake up, and better than chain bagel competitors.
This is a really big sandwich. It's over two inches tall, and the bagel makes it fairly mash-resistant; it won't fit easily into smaller mouths. On volume alone, the AS&ES justifies its 630 calories and $3.99 price tag. But how does it taste?
Dunkin' is pushing the Smokehouse Sausage Breakfast Sandwich pretty hard these days. The SSBS is sausage, egg, and cheese on an English muffin. The sausage's pedigree is supposed to distinguish this from every other Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwich. It's from Hillshire Farms, which doesn't mean much to me, and its novel shape—a split link rather than a patty—seems a dubious departure, since "It's easy to cram into your mouth" sits pretty high on the list of positives regarding most DD sandwiches.
As Dunkin Brands, the corporate parent and franchisor of many Dunkin' Donuts locations, prepares its upcoming IPO, there has been no shortage of new products released by the company lately; following on the heels of their Big n' Toasty, they've just released the Blueberry Waffle Sandwich: egg and cheese with sausage or bacon on two blueberry waffles.
A breakfast staple for generations, Dunkin' Donuts is no longer just a coffee and doughnut stop; they now have an entire line of breakfast sandwiches, and often features limited-time only "savory" offerings, like the pancake sausage bites. Their newest? The "Big N' Toasty," a limited-time-only breakfast sandwich—double bacon, double egg, and thick slabs of Texas Toast.
Just in time for Valentine's day, Dunkin' Donuts released new cocoa yeast donuts, which will be available through the end of February. The Good Idea, Bad Idea videos from Animaniacs come to mind.
I couldn't help but notice when Dunkin rolled out this new product. It seemed so absurd and a little gross: a pancake-like munchkin with a sausage inside? But when the average consumer makes a Mr. Yuck face, yours truly has to step in to stomach the unstomachable. If it's new, I'm gonna try it.
When approaching this Great Pumpkin Latte Tasting between Whole Foods, Dunkin' Donuts, and Starbucks, we had to ask ourselves, what's more important: pumpkin flavor, or pumpkin spice flavor? It might not seem like it's asking too much for a drink with both "pumpkin" and "spice" in the name to taste like, well, both. But after tasting these three versions, it does seem too much to ask, which is really a crying shame.
