January 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // CANTON, Mass. -- Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is making it even easier and more affordable for customers to enjoy better-for-you options in the New Year. For the first time, all participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout the country are offering guests the option of ordering any breakfast sandwich or Wake-up Wrap with egg whites, allowing Americans seeking better-for-you options another way to enjoy their favorite breakfast items.
Dunkin' Donuts' DDSMART menu of better-for-you foods and beverages has also expanded to include a delicious new Low Fat Cranberry Orange Muffin. Filled with cranberry and orange flavors, the new muffin has only 3 grams of fat. The introduction of the new Low Fat Cranberry Orange Muffin follows the recent launch of Dunkin' Donuts' Low Fat Apple Caramel Muffin that was available for a limited time throughout the fall.
In addition, Dunkin' Donuts has a post-holiday present for consumers looking for value offers in the New Year. In select markets for a limited time, guests can enjoy an egg and cheese sandwich for $.99 with the purchase of a medium hot coffee or beverage at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants.
Finally, participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants will also offer a "Snow Flurries" decorated donut, a yeast ring donut with chocolate icing and wintry snowflake sprinkles, now through the first week in February for the suggested retail price of $.89 cents.
"Our delicious new menu options allow our guests to make better-for-you choices without compromising taste or quality," said Dunkin' Donuts Executive Chef Stan Frankenthaler. "At Dunkin' Donuts, we offer great tasting, affordable food and beverages that will keep America running throughout the New Year."
