If you’re from Massachusetts, you know this all too well.
It’s morning time and work is the last thing on your mind. You’re already thinking of the amount of sleep you’re going to get after work. Maybe you’ll have a beer or read some hilarious political Facebook drama between two people from high school you haven’t spoken with in years. More likely than not, you’ll need a coffee to get through the day.
Dunkin, which we know all too well as a godsend at the “ass-crack of dawn,” will always reign superior over the hipster-infested cesspool known as “Starbucks.” I’ll explain:
Better Food, period.
Why order a piece of cardboard sandwich from Starbucks when I can get a nice buttery, flaky one from Dunks? Case Closed.
Less expensive drinks. Also bigger sizes.
A medium caramel ice coffee is about a dollar difference in price (or at least 50 cents) , and Dunkins is twice the size, Really? Don’t even get me started on the prices of their fancier drinks.
Less fancy artisanal drinks
Things you in the Starbucks line: “Hi can I get a grande caramel creme brulee latte with 2 pumps mocha and extra whip cream?” Things you hear in the Dunkin line, “Hi can I have 2 medium ice coffees, black, 3 sugars.” Keep it simple.
The coffee actually tastes good
I love sugary drinks, I admit it. But Starbucks coffee tastes burnt and the flavors are too processed. Dunkins just tastes so much more…natural.
Oreo. Cheesecake. Donuts. Boston Creme, a Crawler, whatever your heart desires pastry-wise
Fewer morning lines (for the most part)
This might depend on where you live. The nearest Starbucks in my neighborhood at 8 am has lines OUT THE DOOR. No thank you. I don’t get why everyone is obsessed with this junk.
Dunkins won’t spell your name wrong. Or write it on the cup for that matter.
I’ve heard so many people complain about Starbucks spelling names wrong. Just do what Dunkins does and call out the order. Also, this picture is just perfect. His face just completes it.
