Mmm...cheap Dunkin' Donuts coffee

I was running an errand with the kiddos today and passed a Dunkin' Donuts.  It's funny to me that their new(ish) logo prominently features a coffee cup, not a donut.  Funny--and smart, considering that coffee is trendier these days than high-calorie donuts are.

Seeing that sign, the coffee craving lurking in the back of my mind came to the forefront.  So when I passed the DD shop again on the way home, I went through the drive-through and ordered a small decaf latte.  At $1.99, it's not a terribly expensive craving to indulge.

I got to the window to pick it up and was greeted with, "That'll be $1.08."  I said, "$1.08?"  And the friendly DD employee informed me that from 2-5 p.m. during the month of February, small (12 ounce) lattes are a buck (plus tax, of course.)  Nice!

So when you've got a mid-afternoon coffee craving this week, indulge it, for a buck.


P.S.  I hope this is company-wide...but I'm not sure.

I've heard that they have great coffee actually. If I can break my Starbucks addiction, might try it :)

Woohoo! Thanks for the update. The end of 2008 they ran a special that on Sunday a small latte was 99 cents.. but then with 2009 it ended. (I was heart broken) BUT now..NOW..I feel refreshed..ready to to go. From 2-5 anyway. America runs on Dunkin, right?

Nice! Their coffee is really good. It usually tops the nationwide list of some sort of taste test challenge or something (nice and exact fact right?). :)
