Dunkin' Run

Lovely site and associated iPhone app from Dunkin Donuts: Social software to organize your coffee run.

Current status: Craving a “large regular” and a bacon & egg bagel sandwich.

I love the free Red Sox "Sports Propaganda" posters that Dunkin Donuts is giving away. I'll have to buy a real screenprint once they're on sale again.

Japan Runs on Dunkin' on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

This cracked me up when I saw it at Fenway last night. The Dunkin Donuts billboard above the bleachers is in Japanese (reportedly, it says “Welcome to Fenway Park”). Dice-K mania hits Dunks!

Fritalian (Dunkin' Donuts commercial)

Another series of Dunkin Donuts commercials featuring music by They Might Be Giants has started hitting the air. This is my current favourite.

‘Best’ of Boston?

‘Best’ of Boston?

This is odd. Dunkin Donuts cups currently proclaim that they were awarded a "Best of Boston" award by Boston Magazine this year. However, a search of the Best of Boston site finds no such win.

In fact, it appears that the "award" was merely a corporate agreement to use the cup on the magazine cover.

I love DD as much as the next New Englander, but since the "Best of Boston" usually _means_ something (unlike some other awards, which just rank which business did the best job getting their customers to ballot-stuff), it seems massively lame to whore the title this way.

You know, I often dream about getting this much caffeine.

Dunkin' Donuts: Things I Like To Do

I’m loving the new Dunkin Donuts jingle by They Might Be Giants. “I’m slightly more efficient than I previously was” is possibly the most honest advertising slogan for coffee ever.

Hurrah for Stop & Shop, who have now added cupholders to their trolleys.
