CANTON, Mass., Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With football season nearly ready to kick off, Dunkin' Donuts is making it easy for breakfast lovers to enjoy a taste of weekend tailgating any time of day, any time of week, no stadium or parking lot necessary. Dunkin' Donuts today announced the newest addition to its all-day breakfast lineup for fall, the Tailgater Breakfast Sandwich, officially available for a limited time at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants beginning August 31.
Dunkin' Donuts' Tailgater Breakfast Sandwich serves up the spirit of great game day grilling to guests, featuring the mouthwatering combination of an egg, reduced fat cheddar cheese and juicy split smoked sausage topped with fire-roasted peppers and grilled onion mix and Ancho Chipotle sauce on an oven-toasted French Roll. Guests needn't wait until a weekend to enjoy the flavor of tailgating, as the new Tailgater Breakfast Sandwich – like all Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwiches – is served any time of day, all week long.
August is National Sandwich Month, and to celebrate this and the launch of the new Tailgater Breakfast Sandwich, Dunkin' Donuts is giving people an opportunity to show their support for enjoying breakfast whenever they want, with a special "Breakfast Whenevs" sweepstakes. Today and tomorrow, fans can share via Twitter or Instagram why they enjoy breakfast anytime of day, along with hashtags #BreakfastWhenevs and #Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes begins each day at 11:01 AM (the end of traditional breakfast hours) and continues to 8 PM. One Breakfast Whenevs sweepstakes grand prize winner will receive a year's worth of Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwiches, and an additional 10 winners each day will be rewarded with $50 mGifts so they can enjoy Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwiches and other favorite brand menu items throughout the rest of National Sandwich Month and beyond.
