True Massholes Gotta Love Dunkies

Dunkin Donuts 

By Heather Blanchette 


One of my best friends has a clever rating system for the Dunkin Donuts of the Northeast. He, a true Masshole, has traveled far and wide to find the best Dunkin Donuts in the state, and with his fantastic memory can remember which ones were great, which one’s really missed the mark and all those in between.

The one we hit up today was a 7 out of 10, which is a very adequate rating for him. Not only was the service relatively fast, although they did have to “look in the back” before they could tell me if they had a Coolata machine (skeevy), but they also got his order right. He’s convinced most Dunkies are out to kill him.

The difference between milk and cream is huge when cream can make you deathly ill, however a large number of Dunkies employees have handed him iced-coffees with cream rather than milk. Not only is there a difference between the two products, but the color they turn the coffee is vastly different as well.

I will never forget the day we went to a lower rated Dunkies. This was back in the stone age when they used to sell Dunkachino’s (oh those were the days). I asked for an iced-Dunkachino, and rather than giving me a cup  of liquid with ice, like they do with iced-coffee, the gave me a cold cup of water and poured dry mix into it, rather than the already brewed finished product. Never again have I accepted a Dunkies with a rating lower than 6 out of 10!

Now don’t get me wrong, I would pick Dunkies over Starbucks, Brueggers or Espresso Royal any day for coffee, but please Dunkies, stop trying to kill my friend! (Oh…and if you get a chance…could you please bring back the Dunkachino?)
