I am having so much fun with my #31 Days of Love posts and I want to share something with you that has been a part of my daily morning routine for the last three years……Dunkin’ Donuts. Growing up in California, I was a Starbucks girl and spent most of my twenties hanging out at a local Starbucks sipping lattes and working on my laptop. When I came to Tampa, I discovered Dunkin’ Donuts and fell in love with the delicious coffee from this Northeast iconic chain. Let’s just say, I truly run on Dunkin’, and mornings are literally impossible without my daily cup of joy.
My first cup of coffee from Dunkin’ was their Cinnamon Spice and I have been addicted ever since. I pass by the Dunkin’ Donuts, located at 4404 W. Gandy Blvd., everyday on my way to the office and always stop for a hot cup of love. There is something about their coffee that just makes me smile. No matter how tired I am or how much I dread going to work, their coffee turns a bad morning into a great one. To put a spin on a classic line, for me, “the best part of waking up is Dunkin’ Donuts in my cup.” During the fall and winter, my go-to cup is their classic Pumpkin Spice.
My children are both quite fond of Dunkin’ Donuts, especially my daughter, Gianna, who loves their donuts. Her favorite is with “pink sprinkles” and in her own words, she says it is “yummy in her tummy.”
Dunkin’ Donuts is known for their fantastic seasonal items and the holiday season is one of their busiest times of the year. With favorites such as Gingerbread, Peppermint Mocha and White Chocolate Lattes, Dunkin’ has something for the coffee lover in everyone. Available hot or iced, their specialty drinks are enough to make anyone’s spirits brighter.
Dunkin’ always has seasonal donuts, like this Holiday Star Donut (below), to spice up your mornings.
My son’s favorite is their seasonal Hot Chocolate Mint. I have a hard time getting him out of bed sometimes, but if I mention Dunkin’ Donuts, he gets up immediately.
As part of my #31DaysOfLove, I am giving away three $5 gift cards to Dunkin’ Donuts. To enter, simply comment on this post and tell my why you need some Dunkin’ Donuts in your life. I will pick three winners on 12/15. In the meantime, be sure and stop by your local Dunkin’ Donuts for delicious coffee and savory treats.
