‘Tis an age of miracles.
Snackin’ Bacon is a little extra-special, even. As meat-eaters know, bacon is plenty good on its own. Dunkin’s Snackin’ Bacon deepens the flavor with a “sweet black pepper seasoning” — basically brown sugar and black pepper, that magical sweet-salty-spicy mix. Hungry yet?
According to a press release, Snackin’ Bacon should be available at Dunkin’ shops as of Feb. 26.
Folks on Twitter received the news with their customary enthusiasm. User @Brittany_207 is ready to snack:

@McCoy1906 is getting a craving, too:
There is a Dunkin’ location inside my office building and they now sell “sweet black pepper snackin’ bacon” (also know as plain ol’ bacon). I kinda want some pic.twitter.com/e8klmm0g0H

@wanderer_aly snagged a bag and is getting looks — but is uncertain whether people are jealous or judging:
Sitting in the airport eating “snackin bacon” from Dunkin (which is just 8 strips of seasoned bacon in a bag) and I have never gotten so many weird stares while eating a snack- idk if they r jealous or judging🤷🏻♀️🥓

I’d go with jealous.
The fabulous bag o’ bacon isn’t the only new item at Dunkin’ — just the most eye-catching. The brand’s new matcha lattes joined the menu this month, too.
Matcha, a brilliant-green powder made from ground green tea leaves, is a health-food favorite. It’s high in antioxidants, which some studies have linked to health benefits such as preventing heart disease. The new lattes are available with the customers’ choice of milk, served hot, iced or frozen.
The name Dunkin’ Donuts doesn’t scream “healthy,” but the brand’s been embracing more modern ways of eating (even dropping that “Donuts” part). Last year they even began offering a plant-based breakfast-sausage patty made by Beyond Meat.
Don’t get me wrong: A chocolate-frosted donut and a cup of black coffee is an eternal breakfast of champions. But times are changing, and green tea matcha lattes at Dunkin’-not-just-Donuts is a sign of the times.
And now we can get bacon to go, too!
