Dunkin’ Donuts Rolls Out Healthier Menu Items

Dunkin’ Donuts has announced the launch of its new DDSMART menu, the brand’s first to offer better-for-you options on food and beverages.

Labeled with a distinctive new logo, the new DDSMART items include new and existing Dunkin’ Donuts food and beverages that meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • 25% fewer calories;
  • 25% less sugar, fat, saturated fat or sodium than comparable fare or ingredients that are nutritionally beneficial.

    A highlight of the retailer’s healthier menu options: egg white flatbread sandwiches. Dunkin’ Donuts said it’s the first national quick service restaurant chain to introduce egg white sandwiches.

    The DDSMART menu includes two varieties of this innovative item: Turkey Sausage (featuring turkey sausage, spinach and reduced-fat mozzarella cheese) and Veggie (featuring peppers, onions, mushrooms and reduced-fat cheddar cheese).

    Both of those items are less than 300 calories and have nine grams of fat or less. They’re served on wholesome toasted multigrain flatbread.

    The retailer has outlined other new and existing items that quality for the DDSMART menu, such as:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts coffees, lattes and espressos, which have 70 calories or less when using skim milk and a sugar substitute. Coffees are available in eight flavors, all sugar-free.
  • Reduced-calorie Berry Smoothie made with real fruit and low-fat yogurt and serving as a source of vitamin C and calcium. The drink has 30% fewer calories and nearly 40% less sugar than a regular Dunkin’ Donuts Smoothie.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts’ fresh-brewed unsweetened iced tea. A small cup is only five calories and is sugar-free.
  • Coffee Coolatta, made with skim milk, has zero grams of fat per serving.
  • Egg and Cheese or Ham, Egg & Cheese sandwiches served on an English muffin (350 calories or less).
  • Dunkin’ Donuts’ Multigrain Bagel, an excellent source of fiber, with eight grams of total fat per serving. Also available are Dunkin’ Donuts’ reduced-fat flavored cream cheeses.

    "Understanding what our busy, on-the-go customers want and constantly innovating to meet those needs is the single biggest reason for our brand’s growth and success,” said Dunkin’ Donuts President and Chief Brand Officer Will Kussell. “DDSMART represents an important milestone for the brand. Both our customers and franchisees have told us they’re looking for a greater breadth of menu choices that include better-for-you options, without compromising quality, taste and value. With DDSMART, we have enhanced our menu to ensure our restaurants offer great-tasting food and beverages that fit any customer’s lifestyle.”
