My mornings have a basic routine. I stop at the Dunkin near my house and get my morning fix of coffee. Turbo ice, with two shots of espresso, no sugar and a splat of cream. No matter what else changes about me, I always take my coffee the same way.
I have been on a diet since the first of the year, dropping over 50 pounds and 6 clothing sizes. While I have regained a few of those pounds, I have promised myself I would get back on track, moving more and eating less. Which has worked for me so far.
Until today, at Dunkin Donuts.
A recent article in the Boston Globe, asking the question why another donut chain failed in Massachusetts mentioned DD sales more coffee than donuts. Even the newest adds for DD mention their coffee, and other drinks ignoring the donuts for which the store is named. Because, America, or at least this American runs on Dunkin. Coffee, not donuts, but this morning, they got me.
My rumor-mongering friends tell me that signs have been spotted in two separate Dunkie's locations around the city of Boston today indicating that Tuesday, May 23rd, will be Free Iced Coffee Day at Dunkin' Donuts!Â The Dunkie's website doesn't mention it, although a Googlification of the matter indicates that May 23rd and June 8th seem to be free iced coffee days at Dunkie's in certain states.Â Massachusetts, however, is not mentioned.Â
As far as I am concerned, this is head and shoulders above free cone day at Ben & Jerry's.Â Does anyone have any additional info?
Dude. I'm loving the new Starbucks doubleshot promo where the guy rides around near North Station on a Starbucks bike and hands out doubleshots from his bike basket. I'm wondering how effective it really is as a promotion though, because I'm getting at least one per day from this guy, so I'm not going to need to buy the stuff ever. But hey, free boing. Gotta love that.
