Review: Dunkin' Donuts - Coffee with Cream and Sugar

We don't have Dunkin' Donuts in California yet, so when Ben & Jerry's invited me out to Vermont, a short walk in 20 degree weather (so cold my teeth hurt) brought me to a nearby Dunkin' Donuts, where I got myself a welcome cup of piping hot coffee with cream and sugar.

The price tag came out to $1.39 for a small 10-ounce cup, which is slightly less than a brewed cup at Starbucks and a fair bit more than McDonald's (where a 12-ounce cup is $1).

Here on the West Coast, coffee tends to be a dark roast which is the general preference, but often tastes burnt to me. Dunkin' is found mostly east of the Mississippi, where the taste is more for medium roast coffee and Dunkin', in particular, offers a very smooth cup of Joe without any off-putting aftertaste.

You can tell by my picture that there's a fair amount of cream in my coffee although I'm not sure how much was put in (I just generally asked for cream and sugar). It still came out to a nice color and wasn't too creamy. The added sugar made the coffee noticeably sweet, but not to soda or flavored coffee levels.

The overall effect is a nice, creamy, good cup of coffee that's perfect for nippy Vermont weather.

    Can't believe you've been missing Dunkin Donuts for all this time. I start most of my mornings with a cup of this stuff.

  2. Dunkin Donuts used to be in Oregon, but they went under. So did Winchells.

  3. Haha, yeah... maybe in 2015. Fortunately, I can still buy their beans at the supermarket.

  4. Yeah, I remember that. I used to spend my summer their as a kid. We still have Winchell's here in California though. French Cruellers!

  5. Not to be overly critical of minor things, but I've never heard of the idea that Dunkin Donuts is a largely Northeastern thing. Here in the Midwest you can usually reach one in a 10 minute drive. Aren't they nationwide except for CA?

  6. Oh, no worries. I just read that the highest concentration is in the Northeast. They're actually mostly east of the Mississippi (less than 100 locations west of) and are in 36 states total.

    I'll clarify in the post. Thanks for commenting!
