Bacon lovers, get ready to go hog wild over Dunkin’s newest item.
While Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and the official start of Lent, a time where some give up meat, the chain known best for its doughnuts and coffee started selling “Snackin’ Bacon.”
The new snack, which is eight half-strips served in a sleeve, has Sweet Black Pepper seasoning “to help on-the-go customers conquer their cravings without settling for tired and typical snacking choices,” the company said in a news release.
The bacon also is featured on Dunkin’s Sweet Black Pepper Bacon Breakfast Sandwich.
Dunkin’ made other announcements Wednesday about returning items, including Irish Creme-flavored coffee. The flavor can also be added to hot, iced and frozen coffees and handcrafted espresso drinks, including lattes, cappuccinos, Americanos and macchiatos.
