June 30, 2014 // Franchising.com // CANTON, Mass. - Summer is here and Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is celebrating the season with a special selection of new and returning menu items. Leading off, Dunkin' Donuts has a new twist for the taste buds, introducing the Pretzel Twist, featuring a traditional warm, soft pretzel twisted and sprinkled with salt. This delicious all-day option is perfect for on-the-go guests and pairs well with any of Dunkin' Donuts' iced beverages to stay cool throughout the summer months.
"Pretzels are increasingly popular among consumers, and we saw first-hand how much our guests enjoyed new pretzel options when we made our Bakery Sandwiches available on pretzel rolls for a limited time last year," said Jeff Miller, Dunkin' Brands' Executive Chef and Vice President of Culinary Innovation. "We are excited to offer busy people our new Pretzel Twists, an innovative, portable and delicious way to enjoy a soft pretzel on-the-go, any time of day."
Dunkin' Donuts is also heating up its lineup of breakfast sandwiches by bringing back the Southwest Steak Burrito. Inspired by the bold and hearty flavors of the Southwest, the Southwest Steak Burrito features scrambled eggs, seasoned steak, fire-roasted vegetables, potatoes and Pepper Jack and Monterey Jack cheeses, all wrapped in a tortilla.
Finally, to add a little sweetness to summer, Dunkin' Donuts is bringing back two popular OREO® cookie inspired donuts. The OREO® Donut features a yeast ring donut frosted in white icing and topped with OREO® cookie pieces; while the OREO® CREME Donut is a yeast donut, filled with vanilla flavored buttercreme, frosted in white icing and topped with OREO® cookie pieces. For another cool twist on the classic OREO® Cookie, Dunkin' Donuts is also offering OREO® Frozen Coffee and OREO® Vanilla Bean Coolattas through the summer months.
