Dunkin Donuts




I don't feel bad telling you that the FILs hardly ever have "food" in their house. By "food," I mean "items naivehelga considers staples," like peanut butter, cereal, bread, milk, and Campbell's Tomato Soup. Eating breakfast there is either an extravaganza, with pancakes or poached eggs, or nothin' at all - and Friday was a nothin' at all. We began our wedding venue shopping fueled only by coffee, so around 11 AM, we were cranky and hungry - so what better place to eat a hearty breakfast than Dunkin Donuts?

Right. That shit was nasty. We tried to do the right thing by not eating only donuts, so we both got breakfast sandwiches. Never again. There's a reason the place is called Dunkin DONUTS, not Dunkin Sausage-Croissants. My chocolate-frosted donut was delicious, but my sandwich was super gross. Nate says his was gross, too. And the coffee was too hot. Yes, there is such a thing as coffee being too hot.

While we're at it, let's discuss DD's slogan: America Runs On Dunkin. Really? This is something to be proud of? No wonder we're all fat and pasty, if we fuel up on nasty breakfast sandwiches and gross coffee.

Dunkin Donuts - D- (saved from failure by the donuts)

You are a brave soul, ordering "food" at a donut place. Although, now you've caused me to want donuts.

Your post made me remember how much I love donuts, specifically, Krispy Kreme.

We may be running on Dunkin Donuts... but we're not running very far or very often.

Also, those TV ads that proclaim "America Runs On Dunkin'?" That would be the voice of noted fitness expert John Goodman there.

Philly has a Dunkin' on just about every corner. Which explains why they have oft been on the US fattest cities list. That and the cheesesteaks, hoagies, Yuengling...

I so want donuts.
Sonic has nasty breakfast sandwiches, too.

Ugh. I loath Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme .. we used to have a great family owned bakery in our town – they had the best donuts ever … alas, they went belly-up w/all of the retail donuteers …
