I worked at Dunkin' Donuts – the item which contains more calories than a Big Mac & it's not a donut

WHEN you swing by Dunkin' Donuts for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up, it's probably to give yourself a sweet treat.

You might try and be "healthy" by skipping the donut and opting for a different snack option but be warned: a popular breakfast choice has more calories than a Big Mac.

And, no, the calorie-heavy snack is not a donut.

The questionable menu item was mentioned in a compilation of Dunkin' Donuts employee secrets published by Eat This, Not That, and the hefty claim checks out.

According to the McDonald's website, a Big Mac clocks in at 550 calories.

Those 550 calories come from two beef patties, three buns, a slice of cheese, and special Big Mac sauce.

The Big Mac also contains 30 grams of fat and 80mg of cholesterol.

Meanwhile, on the Dunkin' Donuts menu, a sweet breakfast snack boasts similar statistics.

A peek at the nutritional information for the coffee cake muffin reveals the hefty calorie count: one muffin has 590 calories.

Not only that, but the muffin also contains 24g fat and 65mg of cholesterol.

Dunkin' offers other muffins, too, and some flavors are markedly better choices if you're trying to decrease your caloric intake.

The chocolate chip muffin from the brand has 550 calories, right on par with the Big Mac.

The blueberry and corn muffins each have 460 calories, a substantially lower amount.
