Review: Dunkin' Donuts - Pretzel Roll Chicken Sandwich

Dunkin' Donuts' Pretzel Roll Chicken Sandwich features breaded chicken, cheddar cheese, bacon and honey mustard served on an oven-toasted pretzel bun.

I picked one up for $3.49.

Strangely, the staff seemed worried that I wouldn’t like the honey mustard and kept asking me if I was sure I wanted it on the sandwich. Truth be told, it was probably my favorite part. It was sweet and tangy, and added some much needed moisture to the sandwich. Sadly, they didn’t put nearly enough. The pretzel bread roll was firm and a little too thick but I thought the salt was a nice touch.

I think “chewy” might actually be the best word to describe the Pretzel Roll Sandwich. Neither the chicken nor the bacon were particularly crispy, although I can say the chicken had a good savory flavor and was fairly juicy. Dunkin’ Donuts’ bacon never hits the mark for me and this time was no different.

The white cheddar cheese was excellent on this sandwich. I really enjoyed how it complemented the pretzel bun. I could probably do without the chicken and bacon and go for this sandwich with an egg and a double helping of cheddar.

Overall, the Pretzel Roll Chicken Sandwich was okay, but much too dry. The honey mustard and cheese were great but neither was strong enough to hide the flaws. Dunkin' Donuts has been marketing this sandwich as “perfect” due to its smartly put together ingredients, but the flawed execution keeps it from reaching its potential.
