Memorial’s newest food craze comes round with a hole in its center.
That’s right, Dunkin’ Donuts just opened, and just like Krispy Kreme, Memorial students can’t seem to get enough of it. Dunkin opened on Gammon Rd. right next to Woodmans, and because it’s just a short drive under the beltline away, every morning now, you can see a Memorial student walking around with a coffee in one hand and a box of donuts in the other.
Getting there is pretty easy, but parking is somewhat of a challenge. There are a limited amount of parking spots, and because the drive-through extends into some of the parking lot a few of them are hard to access. The easiest solution to this is to just go through the drive-through. It is quicker and you don’t have to deal with parking.
Walking into the new store the smell of freshly brewed coffee and delicious donuts wafts through the air. As you walk up to the counter you are faced with a seemingly limitless amount of choices. According to the Dunkin’ Donuts website there are 74 different donut flavors available. In addition, they have ‘Munchkins,’ which are basically donut holes. My favorite is the Vanilla Kreme Filled donut. It has powdered sugar on the outside and a sweet cream filling. Other favorites are the classic glazed and sprinkle donuts as well as the Old Fashioned Cake donut.
The other half of Dunkin’ Donuts is its coffee. It is a nice pick-me-up, and a great way to start the day. They have hot and iced beverages, but my personal favorite is just their regular coffee. Something about drinking it out of their classic orange and pink cup seems to make their cup of jo better than any other. My answer to the age old question of to dunk or not to dunk is not to dunk. I like my donuts coffee free, but more power to you if you like the dunking experience.
All in all, Memorial’s new sugar craze of Dunkin’ Donuts seems to be here to stay. Make sure to check out the new store, and don’t be surprised the next time you see another Memorial student walking through the hallways with a coffee and a donut.
