CANTON Mass. Dunkin’ Donuts has expanded its better-for-you menu by offering egg whites as a substitute option in all of its breakfast sandwiches and Wake-up Wraps.
The addition of egg whites to its sandwich menu is part of Dunkin’s ongoing strategy to create more healthful offerings for consumers, the company said Wednesday. The chain’s DDSMART menu, which debuted in 2008., features a variety of food items and beverages that contain fewer calories and less sugar and fat than comparable fare.
In addition, the chain also has introduced a new, low-fat cranberry-orange muffin that contains 390 calories and 3 grams of fat.
“Our delicious new menu options allow our guests to make better-for-you choices without compromising taste or quality,” said Stan Frankenthaler, Dunkin' Donuts' executive chef.
As part of a post-holiday promotion, Dunkin’ said it is offering its egg and cheese sandwiches for 99 cents each with the purchase of a medium coffee. The offer is available at participating stores in select markets, a company spokeswoman said.
Dunkin’ Donuts has 8,800 restaurants worldwide.
