Last week I received an exciting message stating, "Dunkin’ Donuts will launch a new product Friday, June 7th, and we want you to partake in a free tasting! This Friday marks National Donut Day and the release of the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich. The franchise is hosting a tasting event for you and other food bloggers in the Pittsburgh area. We are excited to see what you think of this new creation." As life would have it, I had to work on National Donut Day so I was unable to make it dahn to Market Square on June 7th. You can imagine my crestfallen face when I had to reply to say that I would have to miss the opportunity. Fortunately, the lovely interns in charge of this endeavor were flexible and arranged for me to try the new Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich yesterday instead (which was perfect because I got to walk around the Three Rivers Arts Festival afterward)!

As for taste, I think that Dunkin' Donuts is on the right track with this menu item. The egg is fluffy (with a bit of pepper, but not overpowering in any way); the bacon has flavor and proportion (albeit I think it could be a bit crisper to add texture); and the donut provides the perfect amount of "sweet" to the egg and bacon's "salty." Despite getting glaze all over my fingers, I didn't mind because the sandwich itself is delicious and filling. Thus, while I don't eat ahhhht for breakfast very often, I wouldn't be opposed to ordering the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich again. I suggest yinz try it!
