Dunkin' Donuts expands menu

August 03, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Looking to entice those hungry for a more healthful option, Dunkin' Donuts is introducing some better-for-you offerings this month.

The menu, which will debut in stores Wednesday, will feature two flatbread sandwiches made with egg whites.

Customers will be able to choose either a turkey sausage egg-white sandwich or a vegetable one. Both will be under 300 calories with 9 grams of fat or less, the company said.

"We just felt it was important to provide some choice in our menu," said company President Will Kussell.

The new menu will be called DDSmart and will include all current and new items that either have 25% fewer calories, sugar, fat or sodium than comparable products or contain ingredients that are "nutritionally beneficial," the company said.

Kussell said Dunkin' was developing several offerings but declined to disclose details.
