This Is the 1 Absolute Worst Breakfast Item You Should Never Order at Dunkin’ Donuts

No matter where you stop for a quick grab-and-go breakfast, you might want to avoid ordering the first thing that looks good on the menu. While some fast food chains offer healthier alternatives, they’re typically not as well-advertised as what they know will speak to your cravings.

Dunkin’ Donuts definitely knows how to make their not-so-healthy items seem like the only thing you want to order. The next time you’re standing in line or at drive-thru, be sure to avoid these breakfast items at all costs. If you do decide to indulge, definitely don’t give in to the No. 1 worst breakfast item at Dunkin’ Donuts.

Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t shy about the fact that their Big N’ Toasted breakfast sandwich “doesn’t go light on breakfast.” They even advise, “Neither should you.” However, maybe you should consider going a bit lighter than this hefty meal. It includes two eggs, cherrywood smoked bacon, and American cheese, all stuffed between two slices of Texas toast.

If you decide to go big instead of go home, be prepared to consume 620 calories, 38 grams of fat (with 12 grams of saturated fat), 360 milligrams of cholesterol, 1,200 milligrams of sodium, and 41 grams of carbs.

If you’re really in the mood for a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich, definitely avoid getting it on a croissant. This combination will get you 700 calories, 51 grams of fat with 20 grams of saturated fat, 215 milligrams of cholesterol, 1,120 milligrams of sodium, and 41 grams of carbs.

Simply swapping out the croissant for an english muffin will make you feel less guilty about eating your breakfast sandwich. While it won’t affect the amount of sodium or cholesterol, you’ll instead intake 550 calories, 34 grams of fat with 12 grams of saturated fat, and 37 grams of carbs.
