A donut shop found roughly every 1/10th of a mile on every street in greater Boston.Eric Vroom
I've neva heard anyone call Dunkin Donuts "Dunkies"... We usually say something like "I'm goin ta Dunkins. Want anythin?"...I grew up in Wes-fid, er, I mean Westford :)

Salisbury, MA; Southern NH; Biddeford, Maine; it is acceptable for Dunks and Dunkins, maybe even D n D or Double D, but it is DUNKIES.
Funny, I've always just called in Dunkin' Donuts. But then I'm not really from Massachusetts, I'm from Westa Wusta.
Its Dunks in the 'Dolph
My friends and I call it "DuDos."
in saugus it's dunks
I was born and raised on Cape,now stationed in FL and we have Krispy Kremes,, iunno what the hell the obsession is with K.K.'s cuz they suck as far as im concerned (massive amounts a sugar oozing off,,McNasty!) ,, i went to visit mah friend just south of Tampa (shes originally from "The Cape" also) and i was like "Damn i miss double D's" she said "they got one in town" i said "no F'n way!",,needless to say we went there bout 4 times in 3 days,,nothin like a cinnamon raisen "bag-el" (as my friends say it) toasted with cream cheese and a strawberry coolatta,,mmmMMmMmmmMm
Man I miss D-D's! I moved from New Bedford to Seattle a while ago.They closed all the ones around here to put up Krisp Kreme's. I miss buying coffee for less than five bucks...huh. I guess thats what I get.
it's dunkie's in b-tree
Dunks, not Dunkies.
Here in Framenham, it's Dunkie's. But I drive a cab there, so the question is-- are we talkin about:Dunkie's Conkid (Concord Ave, Rt 126)" Wavilly (Waverly Ave, Rt 135)" Franklin (St.)" Temple (St-- actually on Rt 9 a block from Temple)" Fiyastone (a Dunkie & Firestone in a single building, across from the Natig Mall" Thirddy (Rt 30 by Speen St)Mark.
I think I live in the only frigging town in Massachusetts without a Dunkin' Donuts. Nearest one is about a half hour away... It's bullshit.Most people around here call it Dunkin' Donuts, though... no fun nicknames.
lived in the boston area all muh life and ive always called it dunkin donuts...wicked wiehd
Dunkin's. Or, simply "Get coffee."I heard that their coffee is so tasty because they spray sucrose on the beans."I'll have a medium regular and a jelly stick."
yaa we call it dunkies here in west roxbury...never dunkin donuts
Here in Newton, we say Dunkins, Dunkin Donuts and occaisionally "Dunkie Donie." We've got 9 DD's now in Newton. I think only Boston and possibly Quincy have more than Newton.
we called it drunkin donuts in randolph but that was way the hell back!
I'm from CA, but can't get enough of Dunkin' Donuts when I visit MA. I have always heard it as "Double D."
I grew up in Boston. Hyde Park. People say Dunkies all the time. Kinda like Cumbies. "Let go to Dunkies, and get a wicked good coffee. Then I gotta go to Cumbies and pick up some Marlboro's and Play Megabucks."
Here in Jersey it's always been Dunkin Donuts. But I lived in Lemisstah (Leominster) for 4 years and there it was D & D, coffee, or Dunkies.My usual? A small lite & sweet and an apple crumb donut.
In Brighton, I'd hear people call it "Dunkies," but most people called it by the full name, "Dunkin Donuts." My New Jersey-born wife, though, thinks I pronounce the second word strangely. Coming out of my mouth it rhymes with "own-its"..."Dunkin DOUGH-nits."By the way, when friends of mine from here in NJ come back from a first-time Boston visit, they always remark about the huge number of Dunkin Donuts places they saw there. That's Boston for ya.
I had friends visiting from Pennsylvania once and they got lost on the way up here and ended up in Chinatown so my roommate offered to give them directions. They couldn't tell what street they were are so they decided to use landmarks and promptly told her they were at the "Dunkin' Donuts" to which my roommmate replied, "Um, you have to choose another landmark." (Despite the fact we knew which Dunkin' Donuts they were at obviously.)
I prefer to call in Dunky D's here in Mass
I moved from Nashua to Los Angeles a few months ago. There's no Dunks, anywhere! I have my mom mail me some, and the cups too. I've had East Coasters come up to me and ask where I found a Dunks, and they're sad when I tell them I had it mailed.
Hi my name is Dave, and i Run on Dunkin.
Have used both Dunkies and Dunkins in Fall River/Westport/Dartmouth area
It's for sure Dunks, neva heard it called Dunkies before!!!
I'm from Nebraska and I came up to Boston or Bawstin as You call it in July and I had Dunkin Donuts for the first time and liked their Coffee and Donuts alot. I wish they have Dunkin Donuts in Nebraska especially the Omaha area if You guys know the Omaha, Nebraska area. So for the Pronouciation, I thought that it was just Dunkin Donuts but I was wrong. My Uncle who lives in Quincy (which is Quin-c) Said Dunkies, and I was Confused when he said "Dunkies". It may be just me because I'm from Omaha, but its supposed to be just Dunkin Donuts. GO RED SOXS and PATRIOTS
Well, I grew up outside of Gardner and we never got a DD until after I moved from the area, now Gardner has 3 of them. We had Mr. Donuts, which to us was just as good and always packed when I went. The closest DDs was in Fitchburg, but who the hell wants to drive all that way just for coffee. Mr. Donuts had great coffee and the best donut holes!I live in colorado now and all there is here are Krispy Kremes, which are so overrated. You can actually feel the fat attaching to your body just driving by the place.
I'm from around Lowell and we've always called it Dunks. Just say, "Lets go get some dunks," and everyone will suddenly become you're best friends
Always called it Dunkin Donits. Whenever we skipped school that's weh we went. Always a crusah theyah, too.
Ya here in Medford ( or Medfid but never EVER meffa)we say Dunkin's . Not double D's. Thats weird.
i always called it dunkin donuts but then wen i started workin there i got used to "dunkin" . . but since i worked there i usually hear it called dunkies
In norfolk county we call it dunkies, I said this in NH and i got laughed at
its def. D.D's
eitha Dunkies or Dunkins only two ive eva herd as in:u went ta Dunkies and ya didnt getme anythin!!!!
I took my mom to Boston on a research trip for a series of books I'm writing to be set in Boston. We could not believe the number of Dunkin' Donuts every block. We have a few here in Arizona, not too many. But it was too funny how they're *everywhere.* Someone in Boston told us that it's because DD started in Boston--it's the DD HQ from what we were told.
It's Dunkies in brockton and most of the cape.For anyone missing a dunkies, try Tim Horton's, canadian donut company... almost as good. A lot better than that K.K. crap.
In eastern CT where I grew up, my friends and family all call it "Dunky Do's", pronounced like 'doze'.As in "I stop at Dunky Do's every day before work to get a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant"Oh yum.
I grew up in Dot and always called it Dunkin Donuts....never heard of Dunkies or Dunks....but then again I've been gone a long time. When I lived in Bermuda I used to bring 2 doz. donuts back there after visiting my family in Boston. Same thing when I lived on Nantucket....those in the know could smell them a mile away and I'd have to stash a dozen for me and "share" the others. I now live in Maui and there are no Dunkin Donuts here either! Damn! I would die for a jelly crullah or a honey dipped donut any day of the week. There is a KK here, but it is pure crap, no taste or substance to those things at all!
Boston(Dorchester) I refuse to call it anything other than Dunkin Donuts. I know very few people who call it anything else and think it sounds pretty lame to do so.
I got laughed at in New Hampshire for calling it Dunkies, but non the less its called dunkies in Franklin
Grew up in Newton then Brookline, alway's called it DD's :)) Infact I have a canister with scoop from there and it has DD on the front.Live outside Las Vegas, thank G*D they are opening them around here, I get the coffee at Costco's now!!!!!!
I grew up in Wakefeel and we always went to Dunk's at Redstone in Stonum. Never heard the term "Dunkie's til now.
I lived in Mayned, Marlbro, Hudson & Newton, Mass. for most of my life. I've heard it called Dunks, Dunkies, Dunkins & Dunkin Donuts, but no matter what, no matter where, even here in FL, their coffee is still the best!
Based on this thread, we're going to have to physically map out what it's called by location. Here in Connecticut, it is always, always Dunkies/Dunky's.
And yes, it's DOUGH-nits, not dough-nuts. Dough-nuts is the classic giveaway of a leafer (leaf-peeping tourist, usually from Jersey or the City).
In Eastin we'd call it Drunkin, as in Drunkin Donuts, as in "Hey, I'm going upta Drunkin, y'wan enny?"
As a proud resident of Bristol County (aka where Dunkies was born), we call it Dunkies. It's Dunkies. We've decided it for everyone.
Was actually from Quincy Mass...Norfolk County
