(CHICAGOTRIBUNE) — Dunkin' Donuts wants to sell you a doughnut sandwich.
Hitting stores Friday, the breakfast item is composed of a fried egg, bacon and two glazed doughnuts. It has 360 calories, according to the company website. That's 60 more than an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's.
Coming on the heels of the news that McDonald's is offering egg whites as a substitution on any of its breakfast items, a glazed donut sandwich at Dunkin' would appear to be running counter to a healthier-eating America.

"We've seen the savory and sweet combination becoming more and more popular," Stan Frankenthaler, executive chef and vice president of Global Product Innovation at Dunkin' said in an article posted on the company site, pointing to success with its waffle breakfast sandwich and pancake bites.
