  1. Dunkin’ Donuts has a bacon doughnut sandwich. But did Kentucky do it first?


    June 5, 2013 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    I guess the marriage of bacon and morning pastry at Dunkin’ Donuts was inevitable.

    The chain first introduced the Glazed Breakfast Sandwich in April, Eater National reported. But only customers in Massachusetts got to try this sandwich made up of a fried egg and bacon between two glazed doughnuts.

    Last week, DD debuted this new breakfast item nationwide, and the internet seems surprised that a restaurant would offer something that just seems so bad yet so good.

    But lest we not forget that Kentucky’s been doing this meat-and-doughnut sandwich thing for years.
