So, This Exists: Dunkin Donuts' Donut-Bacon Sandwich

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 03: A Dunkin' Donuts employee places a fresh tray of 'croissant doughnuts,' on the shelf on November 3, 2014 in New York City. The pastry, which began selling at Dunkin' Donuts two days ago, is based on baker Dominque Ansel's hybrid pastry, the 'cronut,' which came to popularity in the summer of 2013.

So, this exists.

Dunkin Donuts has launched a new breakfast sandwich that if you're lucky, will kill you quickly. The new permanent menu item is a twist on the classic bacon and eggs sandwich—only instead of a biscuit, you get a donut. 

But before you take a Lipitor and dig in, be forewarned that this is practically health food. Dunkin Donuts says the donut sandwich actually clocks in at a mere 360 calories. That's less than the 390-calorie turkey sausage sandwich introduced by the company earlier this year as a pseudo-healthyish option. 

Stan Frankenthaler, executive chef and vice president of product innovation at Dunkin' Donuts (that's also a job) says you should be able to get the sandwich with any flavor donut, which is good news for us burgeoning chocolate-bacon lovers. Next up, toasted donut with lox.
