Dunkin Donuts Egg White Flatbread Sandwich Review

Dunkin Donuts Egg White SandwichI know you're saying to yourself - what the heck is Dunkin' Donuts doing on a "healthy" and "diet" food review website?! Well, fear not ladies and gentlemen, I haven't loss my mind. Dunkin Donuts has a new DDSmart Menu, which features "healthier choices." They are now the first fast food company to make an all Egg White Flatbread Sandwich.

There are 2 varieties, an Egg White Veggie sandwich which features egg whites, peppers, onions, mushrooms, reduced fat cheddar cheese on multigrain bread. The other one is an Egg White Turkey Sausage sandwich which has egg whites, turkey sausage, spinach, reduced fat mozzarella cheese on multigrain bread.

I found the Veggie sandwich a little bland (sorry vegetarians). Maybe it needed more salt (although the nutrition facts suggest that not another gram should be added). The peppers, onions & mushrooms didn't add anything to the texture nor the taste. In contrast, I thought the Turkey Sausage was delicious. The sausage made a difference and the sandwich just seemed more spicy.

The nutrition facts for the Egg White Veggie Flatbread Sandwich are 290 calories, 9 grams of total fat which is 14% of the recommended daily amount (RDA), 4 grams of saturated fat - 20% of the RDA, no trans fat, 7% of the RDA for cholesterol (20 mg), 28% of the RDA for sodium (680 mg), 11 grams of protein and 39 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 4 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber (12% of the RDA). There is also 170% of the RDA for vitamin C and 20% calcium.

The Egg White Turkey Sausage Flatbread Sandwich has less calories and almost half the fat, but more sodium. There are 280 calories, 6 grams of total fat and 2.5 grams of saturated fat (9% and 13% of the RDA), 34% of the RDA for sodium, 19 grams of protein and 37 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 5 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber (12% of the RDA).

The ingredients list reads like a book, which was a bit of a turn off. Overall, the nutrition facts are not stellar, but as I said over at Food-Notes.com, this is one of the better choices if you must have fast food. The sandwiches cost a little less than $3.00 each and was substantial enough for lunch (at least when paired with the small (16 ounces) Reduced Calorie Berry Smoothie).
