Dunkin' Starts Selling Packaged Snacks

CANTON, Mass. –- Dunkin' Donuts is growing its grab-and-go offerings.

The Dunkin' Go Bar, a prepackaged, chewy granola bar made with the famous flavor of the brand's Original Blend Coffee, made its debut at Dunkin' Donuts locations on National Coffee Day, Sept. 29. The snack bar is being sold exclusively at the counters of participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants as a permanent part of the brand's grab-and-go menu.

The Dunkin' Go Bar has 220 calories with 7 grams of protein, eight B-vitamins and 12 grams of whole grains.

In a move to further grow its grab-and-go options, Dunkin' Donuts announced a newly formed partnership with Wrigley Foodservice to make Orbit gum and Altoids mints available for purchase at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout the United States.

Altoids mints and Orbit gum are being sold from a customized display that also features the new Dunkin' Go Bar and other grab-and-go items.

In recent years, Dunkin' Donuts has expanded the snack options offered at its counters to include bananas and cups of Munchkins doughnut hole treats.

"The launch of our new Dunkin' Go Bar and Wrigley partnership reinforces our position as the brand best meeting the needs of busy people seeking innovative choices to keep running throughout the day," said John Costello, Dunkin' Brands' president, Global Marketing & Innovation. "Expanding our grab-and-go offerings to provide a variety of convenient, satisfying snacks as a bridge between meals is an extremely important part of our growth strategy as we continue our national expansion and cater to more and more on-the-go guests."
