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.
