On National Donut Day, try a doughnut-bacon sandwich ... or just get a normal doughnut for free
Dunkin' Donuts is now on board the making-new-things-with-bacon train. This year on National Donut Day, which is Friday, the chain is launching its new creation, the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich.
It's got smoked bacon and a fried egg with a sliced, glazed doughnut for a bun. The executive chef for Dunkin' Donuts says this in a Q&A on the company's website: "The glazed donut is light and fluffy and gives you just the right amount of sweetness. Combined with the lightly salted, smoked bacon, the texture and flavors marry together in a wonderful way. It’s a delicious bite of the perfect harmonization of sweet and savory flavors."
OK then. And if a plain ol' doughnut is good enough for you, Lawrence Dunkin' Donuts locations are celebrating National Donut Day by offering a free doughnut of choice with purchase of a drink all day Friday. Stores are located at 521 W. 23rd St. and 1400 W. Sixth St.
According to the definitive source on all things Donut Day, donutdayusa.com, the celebration — always the first Friday in June — was created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
