Only the brand's biggest breakfast sandwich launch of the year, as today Dunkin' Donuts unveiled the new GranDDe Burrito. Big, bold and bursting with flavor, the GranDDe Burrito is a large, 10-ounce breakfast burrito that begins with a delicious tortilla filled with a spicy omelet with jalapenos, red bell peppers and pepper jack cheese with habanero. Dunkin' Donuts then packs in a rice and bean blend that also includes corn, fire-roasted peppers and onions. Served in both sausage and veggie versions, the GranDDe Burrito is available any time of day at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time beginning February 29.
