FAST FOOD NEWS: Dunkin’ Beyond Sausage Sandwich

News Dunkin Beyond Sausage Sandwich

Today, Dunkin’ rolled out nationally its Beyond Sausage Sandwich, which was tested over the summer in Manhattan. It tested so well that the chain decided to launch it nationwide earlier than expected.

The sandwich showcases Beyond Meat’s breakfast sausage patty made with 100% plant-based protein and a mix of spices crafted specifically for Dunkin’. It also features an English muffin, egg, and American cheese. The Beyond Sausage Sandwich has 29% less fat, 33% less saturated fat and fewer calories, cholesterol, and sodium than a regular Dunkin’ Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich on an English muffin.

To celebrate the national launch, Dunkin’ will be offering customers a complimentary sample of the new sandwich on Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November 9, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at participating U.S. locations, while supplies last.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Finally Returns

News Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Return 2

Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is coming back on Sunday, November 3rd, wich turns out is National Sandwich Day.

If you don’t know the tale of Popeyes Chicken Sandwich, it was released nationwide on August 12, 2019. It featured a buttermilk-battered white meat chicken breast, mayonnaise, and pickles on a toasted brioche bun. You could also get a spicy version with spicy mayo. The sandwich got rave reviews and it was so popular that it sold out within two weeks.

But now it’s back after two months of, I assume, building a large stock of buttermilk-battered white meat chicken breast, mayonnaise, pickles, and brioche buns.

While it’s nice that the most notorious chicken sandwich of the year is returning, my question is: Will it sell out again?
