Dunkin' Donuts, America's favorite all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is serving up a hot and hearty new sandwich to keep guests running all day.

The new Texas Toast Grilled Cheese Sandwich features two slices of American cheese and one slice of white cheddar cheese melted between two pieces of thick-cut Texas Toast and served oven-toasted. Guests may customize the sandwich upon request by adding bacon or ham.

The Texas Toast Grilled Cheese, available at participating restaurants nationwide, is Dunkin' Donuts' newest addition to its menu of portable sandwiches made to order and available all day long.

"The Texas Toast Grilled Cheese represents a traditional favorite with a brand new twist: classic grilled cheese with hearty Texas Toast," says Stan Frankenthaler, Dunkin' Brands' Executive Chef and Vice President of Product Innovation.

"Texas Toast has been extremely popular with our guests ever since we introduced it in our restaurants earlier this year. We are excited to offer it in a new sandwich to satisfy guests seeking fresh and filling snacks on the go."

In addition to the new Texas Toast Grilled Cheese, this month Dunkin' Donuts is also offering special holiday donuts, perfect for parties or a quick, affordable treat during shopping, decorating and all your favorite seasonal activities.

Dunkin' Donuts' Sprinkle the Cheer Donut is a yeast ring donut with red icing and holly berry sprinkles, while the Holiday Star Donut is a star-shaped donut with vanilla icing, filled with Bavarian Kreme and topped with silver nonpareils. Available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide, the donuts are a delicious accompaniment to any of Dunkin's delicious seasonally-flavored hot and iced coffees and lattes.
