Dunkin Donuts

Anyone who lives in New England, or at least in Connecticut and Massachussetts, KNOWS that Dunkin Donuts reigns supreme up here.  I can only think of a handful of Starbucks ANYWHERE.  But DD, you can't, as my friend puts it, swing a dead cat without hitting one.

Seriously, there will be 5 or 6 in a mile stretch.  No idea why.

Anyway, I try not to stop often because of the financial piece of it.  Coffee and a bagel will run about $4.50.  It adds up.  But for the purposes of this blog.....WOW, that is alot of sugar and carbs!

I have to pass 4 on my way to work (not counting the number of them I am actually passing while on the highway).  It is soooo tempting to stop and get an iced coffee and bagel.   I like my coffee to be flavored, so it is usually French Vanilla or something Seasonal.  And I get an everything bagel, toasted, with "lite" cream cheese.


It is hard some mornings to drive by.  Yes, I have coffee at home (and I will bring it with me frequently).  And I am working on the eating breakfast thing.

But coffee and a bagel......yummmmmm.

I just keep reminding myself that I don't need it.  My wallet doesn't either.  But my waistline certainly doesn't.


  1. I hear you! The other day I went to a local coffee house to meet up with a GF, and I wanted their lemon bars... SOOOOOO bad!

  2. That would have been hard to pass up. Lemon bars are gooooooood.
