The New Dunkin Donuts Waffle breakfast sandwich

I woke up feeling like total crap this morning, I was more interested in getting 10 more minutes of sleep than making coffee, my throat was so sore that the thought of swallowing anything other than medicine to numb the pain was outrageous. So on my way into the office I decided to run into Dunkin’ Donuts for a Hot Latte’ (because, honestly by then if I didn’t get some caffeine in me I would be fast asleep at my desk in no time) While I was standing on line that was practically out the door at 8:45 I saw an ad for a new breakfast sandwich, the Waffle Sandwich. From the picture it just looked like a mini waffle with egg, cheese & bacon.. But Boy was I in for a surprise!

I don’t normally get egg sandwiches from Dunkin Donuts, I used to refer to them as ‘rubber eggs’ as they were chewy and overcooked and pretty much all around nasty that no amount of ketchup and pepper could cover up. But being all I had all day yesterday to eat was a packet of wheat thins for lunch and a bowl of hot & sour soup for dinner I was absolutely starving and this honestly looked pretty good. So I went ahead and ordered the waffle sandwich and coffee and went on to my office.

Now, Dunkin Donuts has some of the hottest coffee around, no matter what kind of hot drink you get you always have to wait at least 5 minutes before even attempting to take that first sip without totally scalding your tongue and throat (or at least, I do) so I set aside the bag with the sandwich and my coffee and started to tackle the pile of work on my desk that never seems to get any smaller. Once the smell of the coffee started to wear me down I took a sip (ahh, lovely) and then I opened the bag with the sandwich and to my disbelief the 2 little waffles were studded with ......little bits of Syrup! Just like the McGriddle from McDonalds!!! And not only were these little waffles good, but the egg was light and fluffy and the bacon was crispy!!! It was all around good!

I like that Dunkin Donuts is spreading their wings a bit and expanding their menu options, their flatbread sandwiches leave much to be desired though, the eggs are chewy and the small portions leave you hungry. I really like this new waffle sandwich though, it’s a keeper.

I so love Dunkin Donuts, however they have all disappeared on the west coast...well at least in Washington & Oregon. This sammie looks really good.
