Never in my life have I seen more Dunkin' Donuts places!

On Rte 9 in Westborough, there are 2 across the street from each other and they seem to do fine.

They seen to outnumber McDonalds about 4-1.

Amazing!

There's at least 8 that I know of within a one mile radius from me... 3 within a half mile.

I have a 6 mile commute to work and I pass right by 5 more.

DD is making a fortune. A medium coffee costs me about $1.70 and there's usually always a few customers
in the place regardless of the time. The one I normally go to is always crowded, especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

ETA: I just searched the store finder at their website
www.dunkindonuts.com/aboutus/store/Search.aspx.

There's 33 within a 5 mile radius of me.

Moxie is some nasty shit! All the years growing up in Maine, I never had the balls to try it. My neighbors wife is from up in spud country (Aroostic County). Her parents bring her a few cases every year when they visit. She cannot give the stuff away. I finally tried it...it wasn't the worst thing in the world, but it wasn't good either. Tasted like Ginger beer and witch hazel!

I'm on my way to Rhode Island on Friday, you can't swing a cat without hitting a Dunkin Donuts. Like those uppity assholes need more caffeine. It's a state the size of a damn postage stamp, but they drive like bats with their asses on fire. Slow down assholes, if you slow down 5 seconds too late, you'll be in Vermont.

Why can't you get a fucking glass of fresh fucking brewed iced tea in the whole goddamned state of Rhode Island???!?!?? "It's out of season." FUCK YOU. Iced tea doesn't have a season. Duck season, wabbit season, hockey season, that is it, end of fucking list. There is no fucking iced tea season. And don't serve me that pre-brewed nasty fucking Nestea Lemon Sugar synthetic iced tea. I've had my daily allowance of polymers already. Flavored teas are for communists and homosexuals, serve them to the Kennedys, not me. If I wanted Rasberry-Mango tea, I'd go beat myself in the head with a shovel for about 20 minutes.

Actually, I always get a rental car with Masshole plates when I am there. It gives me free reign to drive like a dipshit. People expect it when they see the plates.

The real fun is trying to find any BBQ or Mexican food in Rhode Island. If one more person points me to Taco Bell when I ask about Mexican food, you guys are going to see me on the evening news. I've tried to explain brisket to the folks in Rhode Island, but they can't seem to grasp it. I just leave them to their quahogs and coffee and quietly count the seconds until my flight home.

DV8-
I lived in Hotlanta for 2 years. My parents have lived in North Carolina for 10 years. I think Sweet Tea is the most vile liquid that has ever been served up. You can't get a decent cup of hot coffee, let alone iced coffee, albeit for ONE Dunkin Donuts on the ride between Raleigh and the coast.

I realize noone likes Massachusetts. Rhode Island is just a little state to the south of Mass with a corrupt government, bad drivers (I'll give ya that one) and the best coffee in the USA. Oh, and damn good seafood.

It's silly to dump on a state just because of the politics of the party in power, dont'cha think?
and especially silly to dump on arfcommers who happen to make that state their home.

Yes, we drive badly. You tend to drive that way when you don't have 10 mile straightaways to practice on. But we dare you to traverse the S curves of Pawtucket at 70mph on a rainy day. No, we probably don't have barbeque or Mexican food like you do. But then again, we don't have as many Mexicans as you do to cook for us. But we have a lovely seashore, and good seafood, and if you don't try to talk to us, you can be damn sure we won't talk to you.

That would be the DD in New Bern or near Cherry Point.

It's silly to dump on a state just because of the politics of the party in power, dont'cha think?

No, dumping on states and their residents is a national past-time. Think FL after the 2000 election, WVA or Arkansas inbreds, Kali Libtards, Massholes, Mainaics, Georgia Rednecks, Seattle Washington coffee drinking tree huggers etc...I could go on.

Funny, I always drive crazy after drinking too much coffee/caffiene and eating bad mexican food. Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now!!! If you know what I mean. I grew up in Downeast Maine and have no problem understanding the downeastern accent. But deciphering the Mass/RI dialect is like trying to understand a drunk and stoned toothless homeless person who's tongue is swollen from an allergic reaction to cheap methamphetamine.

I'm not dumping on it because of politics, I'm dumping on it because I have in-laws there and I have to visit it twice a year. Unfailingly, every time I visit, I have to listen to various jackasses tell me how Southerners are stupid, inbred, hicks, blah, blah, blah. I never ask for their opinion of the south, they just feel the need to tell me how superior they are to us "dumb hicks." The whole state has a Napoleon complex.



Yes, we drive badly. You tend to drive that way when you don't have 10 mile straightaways to practice on. But we dare you to traverse the S curves of Pawtucket at 70mph on a rainy day.



I was in RI 2 years ago to photograph a wedding. 2 days before the ceremony, the bride's uncle (a local) turned himself into a red smear on the pavement on those curves. I'm glad to see that you guys have that down to an art form.

I grew up in SE Mass, and sometimes "I" can't understand the Rhode Island accent. I swear to god, some Rhode Islanders sound like the most undeducated idiots in the free world.

They generallly dont serve sweet tea north of the Mason-Dixon line...........I travel a lot through the entire east coast so I know this. I rarely see sweet tea served above Virginia - I think Texas Roadhouse up here may offer it though.........Iced Coffee is perhaps the most OVERRATED beverage ever "designed".......coffee with ice.........simply STUNNING........who was the genius who invented cold coffee? Dunkin Donuts is okay but only slightly above gas station coffee or "Honeydew Donuts" - another Masshole establishment......

If I want sweet tea, I make it........I prefer southern cooking to most northern cooking any day - depends on who makes it. Generally. I like the deep south better since it is actually closer to the central Maine I grew up in - mindsetwise.....The panicky New Yorkers, Jersey drivers and Massholes I run into daily drive me nuts........thank God I'm in New Hampshire.

Hey, don't knock the quahogs. Smokey Bones has great brisket, though maybe not the best compared to what you can get.

Yes, we go through coffee faster than our SUV's go through gas, but you need something to wake you up when its blizzard outside. Though I personly hate coffee.

But we have a lovely seashore, and good seafood, and if you don't try to talk to us, you can be damn sure we won't talk to you.




LoL, I do 75 in my Explorer Sport-Trac through that chican and the speed limit is 55 through most of RI on I-95. Highest tipover rate my ass.

If I want sweet tea, I make it........I prefer southern cooking to most northern cooking any day - depends on who makes it. Generally. I like the deep south better since it is actually closer to the central Maine I grew up in - mindsetwise.....The panicky New Yorkers, Jersey drivers and Massholes I run into daily drive me nuts........thank God I'm in New Hampshire.



Southerners... We have a lot of them in the military... and they cant live without there sweet tea...
No...they cant live with regular iced tea and sugar...its gotta be sweet tea...

Tastes like tea and corn syrup to me...

I am a damned yankee, and I like my tea unsweetened...I am lucky if I can get that here.

Biscuits and gravy...grits... serve that here too...

But I do like ya'lls Krispy Kreme donuts

No...KK here...

Just a Dunkin Donuts at the train station in Suwon.


ETA...

I expect biscuits, gravy and sweet tea to be offered in an MRE version...

I grew up in SE Mass, and sometimes "I" can't understand the Rhode Island accent. I swear to god, some Rhode Islanders sound like the most undeducated idiots in the free world.

And <twitch> I'm on my 2nd <twitch> large iced coffee <twitch> of the morning. And <twitch> I feel fine!

Photokirk, no offense. I have no problem with anyone until they start insulting my home, and then I react with a knee jerk.

I do love the happy hour drink specials in Texas...I'll give you that!

S'all good



Sorry I snapped back at you. Just not looking forward to another weekend with the inlaws. I am putting together a survival kit of Luzianne tea and hot sauce to bring with me.

True story: The TSA goons at the airport in Providence were giving me hell about a bottle of hot sauce in my carry-on bag. They ran it throught the x-ray twice, scratched their heads, and called me over to the super-duper security area. After explaining several times that it was hot sauce (it was store-bought and clearly labeled), I got frustrated, opened the bottle and drank a shot of hot sauce. They let me on the plane, but that little stunt did result in the release of a weapon of ass destruction after the plane got up to altiitude.

Why can't you get a fucking glass of fresh fucking brewed iced tea in the whole goddamned state of Rhode Island???!?!?? "It's out of season." FUCK YOU. Iced tea doesn't have a season. Duck season, wabbit season, hockey season, that is it, end of fucking list. There is no fucking iced tea season. And don't serve me that pre-brewed nasty fucking Nestea Lemon Sugar synthetic iced tea. I've had my daily allowance of polymers already. Flavored teas are for communists and homosexuals, serve them to the Kennedys, not me. If I wanted Rasberry-Mango tea, I'd go beat myself in the head with a shovel for about 20 minutes.

/minor rant off





RANT ON! Why can't I get an iced coffee in the South after September? Iced coffee doesn't have a season either. And it's not just hot coffee poured over ice, you morons! And we're damn proud that we have 40 Dunkin Donuts in the city of Providence alone. Stay in the frekking south, we don't want you in our fine Dunkin Donuts establishments of RI anyway. Iced tea is for those who are too whimpy to drink iced coffee. Don't you have evacuees to poke fun at?

The Kennedys aren't from RI either, ya jackass.

Rant off.

ETA: and I'm fairly sure that were I to ask for a fine seafood establishment in Texas you'd point me to "RED <all our seafood is frozen prior to frying> Lobster". How that sad excuse for a restaurant ever made it to America's most popular casual theme restaurant is beyond me. They can't even make it in New England. We know better.

Right, Hokie???



The Kennedy's might not be "from" RI, but they certainly have plenty of property there, and spend plenty of time there.

Who is one of your Congressmen? Patrick J. Kennedy

p.s. What the hell is Iced Coffee anyway?

NH --> MA --> CT --> NH here

Maybe that's why I'm so screwed up

BTW, I'm just finishing off my ex-large "8&8" (8 creams, 8 sugars) from Dunk's as I type. Usually I take my coffee w/cream only, but on staff meeting days I like to show up wired for fucking sound. Management here typically doesn't screw with you if they see you trembling like a ferret after his second double cappuccino.

At my second job with the mortgage outfit it is considered acceptable to be late for a meeting-just as long as you run through the Dunk's drive thru on your way in. One of our FNGs was late for the meeting this morning, so this coffee ended up being free.

*goons* is right on , with the TSA in Providence. Thank god it's a small airport, and you can forget the experience quickly.
I've been pulled over and had to have a strip search, and had a pair of tweezers confiscated, but had a knife right on my keychain that they let go without a word.
Go figure.

Try Smokey bones at the Providence Place Mall if you get homesick. It's probably not Texas quality, but it might get you through the visit!
