Oh, Dunkin', my Dunkin'...

You know you're pregnant when you decide to dedicate a blog post to your love of Dunkin' Donuts. (I also apologize in advance if you are pregnant and reading this post, because by the time its over, you'll likely have to take a little drive to Dunkin'.)

Where do I begin?

To start, Dunkin' Donuts, to me is a piece of nostalgia. My Dad used to wake me for morning practices at the crack of dawn when I was little with the quote, "Time to make the donuts!" The line was lost on me for a long time. The commercial was before my time and I didn't actually see it until twenty or so years later in a college advertising class.

After practice we'd beg to stop at Dunkin' and to this day my favorite is the Boston Kreme donut. And a box of Munchkins still makes me feel like a little kid. (Stuff your face quickly! Before the "good" ones are gone!)

Dunkin' Donuts' plain bagels with strawberry cream cheese got me through my pregnancy with Henry. And their Iced Carmel Lattes got me through many, many long days after he was born. This pregnancy it's pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. Especially their pumpkin muffins. And I already have the pumpkin k-cups stored away for when my caffeine consumption can begin again after this baby.

Those are my thoughts on my past and present with Dunkin', but the future? I just hope I can create a bit of nostalgia for my kids with occasional special trips to Dunkin'. Henry is already quite familiar with Munchkins, and seems to think that since they can technically fit in his mouth, he should eat them in one bite. Someday I'm sure my kids' hearts will flutter a bit when they sees that box of orange and pink goodness, and all the possibilities inside.

Did you know Dunkin has been around since 1950? Here's hoping they are around forever! What's your favorite Dunkin' treat? Dunkin' memory?
