Dunkin’ Donuts loves you…and bacon. And that’s why they are rewarding our loyalty with their new “Deluxe Bacon Donut”. Shirley Leung, Business Columnist and Associate Editor at The Boston Globe, tweeted delicious proof of the glazed donuts decorated with strips of bacon. It’s currently being consumer tested in participating shops in Providence Mass.
This isn’t the first time Dunkin’ Donuts has tested bacon-lover food in Massachusetts. Remember when we first heard about the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich that later made it nationwide? Looks like DD understands America’s need to bacon everything.
Check out more mouthwatering info after the break.

Jeff Miller, Dunkin’s Executive Chef and V.P. of product innovation spoke to Boston Magazine about the new menu item:
“This month Dunkin’ Donuts introduced the Deluxe Bacon Donut for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Providence. A bakery treat that offers the best of salty and sweet, the Deluxe Bacon Donut is available in two varieties:
- Deluxe Bacon Donut: Glazed Bismark topped with two strips of bacon
- Deluxe Maple Bacon Donut: Glazed Bismark topped with maple icing and two strips of bacon
We have no plans to make the Deluxe Bacon Donut available in other parts of the country at this time, but look forward to the feedback from our franchisees and guests.”
Innovative? No. It’s kind of lazy actually—but I doubt that will prevent this donut from being popular enough to roll out nationwide. I just hope Dunkin’ Donuts knows fellow contributor Nicole and I will be requiring more bacon than two strips.
