Whether you enjoy bacon with eggs for breakfast, on top of a burger at lunch, or even sprinkled over roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner, usually when one eats bacon, they eat it with something else.

Dunkin' has decided to cut out the middle man — or middle meal? — with its latest savory offering. On Wednesday, the coffee chain added "Snackin’ Bacon" to its menu — and it looks exactly like what you'd expect.

Each order of Snackin’ Bacon comes with eight half slices of bacon that have been glazed and dusted with black pepper for a sweet and spicy kick in every bite.

While this snack may seem like a big win for keto or low-carb diet fans, you'd be better off cooking up your own sugar-free bacon at home. Each serving of Snackin’ Bacon clocks in at 190 calories, with 12 grams of fat, 10 grams of carbs and 9 grams of sugar.

In not-so-surprising news, Twitter is already having a field day with the idea of this portable pork snack.

Snackin’ Bacon is now available at Dunkin’ shops nationwide, where it joins a few additional new and returning items for March.

Dunkin' is also rolling out a Lucky Shamrock-themed doughnut which comes with a green St. Patrick’s Day sprinkle blend. The chain's protein-packed Egg White Bowl and savory Sausage Scramble Bowl are also returning to the menu.
