Dunkin' Donuts Disappoinment


Several months ago Dunkin' Donuts closed all but one store in the valley to remodel and open new stores in the valley.  Today was to be the big day.  Husband even joked that I should be there at 5 AM when they opened.  Glad that I didn't do that!

I planned a big day of running errands only to be topped off by one of my favorite donuts (because you can get away with anything when you are prego) and an iced coffee.  I pull into the establishment closest to us only to find a sign below a balloon arch that read as follows:

Due to circumstances beyond our control we are not able to open today.

WHAT?!?!  Say it ain't so.  I am not sure if that was the case for all the new openings but it was a very sad end to a pretty productive day.  Such is life.

I like DD for so many sentimental reasons... 

...random stops there when I was a wee lass with my Papa

...milk and donuts at midnight with Lynn-O while in Ocean City, NJ (walking there in the ocean mist moving in) and donut dates with Ren while in Albuquerque

...random stop on a Sunday morning when my dear Husband wants to surprise me.

Then today... disappointment.  Hopefully, they will open soon or it was just this one particular store.  I need me some Dunkin'.  :)


  1. Oh my darling. I will shower you with DD when you get here. Any lil thing your prego heart desires!!! :)

  2. Here in Connecticut there are only 10 starbuck stores to about 1000 Dunkin's! Since I haven't been in a Dunkin in about 15 years I don't know what all the fuss is about....It's just hard to get excited about Dunkin when you don't like coffee (Do they have Chai?) and their donuts make my daughter sick! Booooo to their BAD ingredients...TBHQ, Carrageenan and food colorings!!!

  3. yes, the east coast always has plenty of DD. Love it there! Not sure if they have Chai. I am not sure what all the fuss ia abut either other than sentimental delight. There are a couple of their donuts that I simply love but I can get it at Starbucks from time to time, too. And your bad ingredients "boo" didn't scare me... LOL!!!
