Dunkin’ Donuts Does 360
A good number for you to ponder is 360. That’s how many calories a new doughnut breakfast sandwich from Dunkin’ Donuts has. It was a smash hit when they tested it in a few cities in April – comprised of a sliced open glazed donut with a fried egg and bacon in it. The sandwich is going national this week and may be healthier than some of its tasty counterparts. The Dunkin’ Donuts “Healthy Menu” option – a turkey sausage sandwich – has 30 calories more.
A Musical Mishap Avoided
A grace under pressure video clip has taken off today. The Red & White Concert at Eisenhower Junior High School in Darien, Ill., had an incident in its percussion section while performing the “Star Spangled Banner.” The strap broke on one cymbal and eighth-grader Andrew Pawelczyk couldn’t hold it, and neither could the bass drummer, who started laughing. Thinking quickly, he just saluted for the rest of the song. His mother says he’s always good in a crisis. Pretty amazing poise for someone who is just 13 years old.
