Turn left at the Dunkin’ Donuts

One of the first things I noticed after moving to upstate NY was the proliferation of Dunkin Donuts. I personally don’t see the attraction, but to each his own.

The stores are so frequent, that I joked that if asked for directions, just say, “Turn left at the Dunkin Donuts” and you’ll be correct 50% of the time…the rest of the time, you should have turned right.

A quick Google search confirms the proliferation of Dunkin Donuts all over the Capital Region.

But I especially like the map at the Boston Globe showing the locations of Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks around the country.

I guess when I’m used to a Starbucks on every corner, the presence of Dunkin Donuts instead is noteworthy. It reminds me of the following scene from Best in Show.

Now, I need to get used to meeting people at Dunkin’ Donuts instead.
