You just don't like it because Howard's social commentary doesn't fit your world view. That's fine. But don't pretend like it is anything more than that. It isn't.
Had a conversation with one of the baristas at our local Starbucks. She said that the daily sales have shown a sharp increase. Not sure if this is a function of the holiday season, but something is driving it.
I had my first pastry from La Boulange at Starbucks today. It was a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Loaf. The loaf was an actual small loaf (not a slice) - probably 3 inches by 1.5 inches. They heated it up and it was delicious. It was moist with a little bit of a crusty edge. I had my doubts, but I'm really impressed. I was also impressed with the selection of pastries. There was a croissant with summer berries (looked like raspberries and blackberries) that I would have loved to have tried. I questioned it before, but I think SBUX has a winner in these new pastries
Top Pot is great donuts. Honestly, Dunkin' has the lowest-end donuts around. They're the McDonalds of donuts, appealing to the lowest-common denominator.
Chris Herren (Boston Celtics) would meet his heroin dealer in the parking lot of a Dunkin' Donuts. And there was a Dunkin' in Florida where drugs were being sold at the drive-thru (a "Sally's Special" or something like that).
There's a guy who hangs out at my local Starbucks drinking Dunkin' coffee. I guess he likes their coffee but can't stand the experience. Has to come to Starbucks for something worthwhile. But let's face it, a house isn't for everyone - some people live in trailers. If all pigs were pork chops, we wouldn't have hot dogs.
Starbucks - Too many to count.
Dunkin' - Zero.
Are you SURE that you're not funding a left-wing agenda? I don't believe you have fully investigated who owns Einstein Bros. Bagels. LOL
We drove by Dunkin' tonight and there was A CAR in the parking lot. Assuming it wasn't one of the local drug dealers waiting for his customer, this should cause a huge jump in the price of Dunkin' stock on Friday morning.
All you Dunkin' supporters need to break open your kids' piggy banks so you can buy a share at the opening!
