Dunkin Donuts' New Glazed Donut, Egg and Bacon Sandwich: A New Low in Fast Food

Just this past Saturday I went into Dunkin Donuts by my job and I saw an advertisement for a new sandwich that quite simply horrified me.  The new sandwich features fried eggs and bacon on...get this...a glazed donut.  At first I thought it was a joke and I asked the manager, but this was no joke.  He pulled out a large poster board that was going to be placed prominently on their wall to advertise this heart attack waiting to happen.

This was one new concoction I simply couldn't believe.  Not too long after that I had gone into the DD's by my house and as I waited on line, I peered around for signs of the fatty 'breakfast.'  Nothing.  I asked the girl behind the counter there if she knew of it, and from the look on her face as I described it, she hadn't, but thought it to be as disgusting as I did.  I mentioned it to several friends over the weekend and they had the same, appalled reaction as I did.  I didn't think anything of it again until my pal Rich sent me a link to a NY Post article:

Dunkin' Donuts' glazed doughnut, fried egg and bacon breakfast sandwich to go national

Oh no, this is no joke, but to me it's just one more sad commentary on our society...our overweight, lazy-ass, society. I had asked that first manager if they had sold any yet, and he said that they had sold two in the two days since they started offering it, and I can't help but wonder how many will buy this 360-calorie salty and sweet offering in the coming weeks. The Post article pondered if customers could order the sandwich on any type of donut, and a company rep answered in the affirmative. Eeeewwwww!!!!!
