The Healthiest Menu Items You Can Order at Dunkin'
Now that they've dropped the "Donuts."
First IHOP, now Dunkin' Donuts. The donut and coffee chain plans to drop its famous “donuts” from the logo by January 2019 to be officially known as Dunkin’. The change is supposedly due to the fact that Dunkin’ offers more than just doughnuts. As Dunkin’ is just about everywhere you turn — including in most airports — it’s always wise to know what your healthy options are. Here are a few of our top Dunkin’ healthy choices. No, doughnuts did not make this list.
Sandwiches and Wraps
