BOSTON – Here in Massachusetts, we are always on the lookout for the latest news about Dunkin' (formerly Dunkin' Donuts). Yes, there are many other fast food restaurants that occasionally earn our attention, but at the end of the day, Dunkin' is practically synonymous with local Massachusetts culture. As such, every new menu item is treated with the utmost scrutiny. After a series of fall and winter related beverages were added to the menu, the offerings continue to expand with the introduction of the new sandwich from Beyond Meat, which will be available soon at Dunkin' locations.

Beyond Meat is one of the top organizations in the entire nation when it comes to the faux meat industry. Plant-based and other such substitutions for meat that still aim to achieve the same great taste that everyone loves while also being suitable and edible for vegetarians and vegans have become quite popular and have established a strong foothold in Boston. Now, the food scene in Boston is about to become even more imbued with the offerings from Beyond Meat as they have partnered with Dunkin' for a nationwide rollout of the "Beyond Sausage" sandwich.

The Beyond Sausage sandwich is made courtesy of a plant substitute and a mixture of spices and it clocks in at a much healthier rate when compared to the other breakfast sandwiches that can be found at Dunkin' Donuts. In case you are curious about the taste, however, the sandwich will be offered for free from eight to ten o'clock in the morning on November 8 and November 9. The new sandwich will debut in all Dunkin' locations across the country, including in the Boston area and all Massachusetts locations, on November 6.

The new menu item comes after it was tested at Dunkin' locations in Manhattan and began to rack up adoring fans. It ranked as the second most popular sandwich option in each of those locations. We'll see if Boston eaters revere it as much as New Yorkers did.

On November 6, when the Beyond Sausage sandwich comes to over 9,000 Dunkin' locations, will you be one of the first in line to try it?
