What: Turkey, Cheddar & Bacon Sandwich
Build: Sliced Turkey topped with Cherry Wood Smoked Bacon and White Cheddar Cheese with Ancho Chipotle sauce.
Comments: The following statement is taken directly from the "bakery sandwiches" section of the Dunkin Donuts website:
"Try one of our freshly-made Bakery Sandwiches. With varieties like BBQ Chicken, Ham & Cheese, and Turkey Cheddar Bacon, freshly-made never tasted so good!"
I'm having trouble with their use of the words, "freshly-made.” Perhaps I can help my readers by re-phrasing this statement to read much more accurately:
"Try one of our highly processed meat and cheese sandwiches freshly microwaved by a person who has absolutely no interest in making you (or anyone) a sandwich."
Yeah, that about covers it. Now to be fair, if you take out my comment about the DD worker, you are still left with a sandwich that is so terrible, it's hard to believe that the Dunkin Donuts corporate office is not embarrassed by this abomination. Seriously, I can walk into a Costco or a BJ's and buy a box of a dozen or so frozen sandwiches that are all much better than the puke DD is spewing. And, the best part, they are charging almost $5 a pop for this crap!
The run down: The turkey comes directly to you in a cryopak bag; the bacon was cut so thin it was transparent, and the Ancho Chipotle sauce resembles a diaper stain. The cheese was the only thing that was palatable. The roll was decent – crispy crust and tasty, albeit very dry.

So the question arises, "who the hell told Dunkin Donuts they should be making food”? They made millions (quite possibly billions) just serving coffee and donuts. That's what they do best; and I can fully understand why they'd want to expand and try new things, but sandwiches? And crappy sandwiches at that? I wonder how the hell this crap ever passed their QC. Seriously, someone in a test kitchen over at Dunkin had to have said, “oh yeah, that's good, let's start selling this.” Really? CRAP, CRAP, CRAP, EPIC CRAP FAIL. No rating. (I don't rate crap.)
And for my Italian readers, remember, DONUTS spelled backwards is…STUNOD.
