    The new menu, which the company began testing last February, will be unveiled Monday in New England and at all locations in the United States by mid-March.

    So long strawberry banana smoothie. Goodbye steak and egg breakfast sandwich. The new simplified menu at Dunkin’ Donuts took effect Monday in New England locations.

    The Canton, Massachusetts-based chain said the changes will allow it to provide "faster, more accurate service" and a more consistent experience from store to store.

    The new menu, which the company began testing in early 2017, was scheduled to be unveiled Monday in New England, and at all locations in the United States before the end of March.

    The 10 percent reduction of the menu includes the elimination of less popular items and ones that are time-consuming to make, like smoothies, afternoon sandwiches and certain breakfast sandwiches.

    The new store will be located at 147 Tremont St. by the Boston Common. The store isn't expected to open until next month, but the new signage went up on Tuesday and is already attracting attention.

    Here's the full list of items that were taken off the menu, according to Dunkin':

    • Turkey Cheddar Bacon Sandwich

    • Ham & Cheddar Sandwich

    • Tuna Salad Sandwich

    • Chicken Salad Sandwich

    • Big N’ Toasted Breakfast Sandwich

    • Angus Steak & Egg Breakfast Sandwich

    • Strawberry Banana and Tropical Mango Smoothies

    • Peach, Caramel and Mocha flavor shots

    • Some optional muffin, bagel and cream cheese selections

    Dunkin' Donuts also announced last week that it has removed all artificial dyes from its doughnuts in the U.S.

    "This is all part of a larger initiative to offer our guests simpler ingredients and cleaner menu labels," read a statement from Rick Golden, a Dunkin' spokesman.

    Golden said all artificial dyes on the menu, including those found in donut icings, fillings and toppings, as well as ones in frozen beverages, will be removed by the end of 2018.
