I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I’ve shared the story of how I finally grew to love coffee at 28 years old before, but I’ll give you a little refresher in case you forgot, or you just don’t know.
I tried coffee a few times during my 20’s. It was always coffee that was made at home, and I found it to be bitter, and very unappealing. Everyone thought I was so weird for not liking coffee. Pretty much every adult I know drinks coffee!
When I met my husband, John, at the age of 28, he convinced me to try his coffee one day on a whim. It was a cup of coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts, and I was hesitant at first, but as soon as that first sip entered my mouth, I wanted more. I knew that I had finally found a coffee that I would love to drink. I have high standards, what can I say? It was absolutely delicious – the perfect balance of cream and sugar, with a wonderful flavor. It was late fall, and I loved how it warmed my belly and made me feel all comfy and cozy. Before I knew it, I was just as hooked on coffee as he was!
I had eaten at Dunkin’ Donuts several times before, and always loved their food and other beverages. I still do! I don’t think there is a single item on their menu that I haven’t tried. I get so excited when their seasonal items come out too. I recently tried their Pumpkin Creme Brulee Latte, and oh my goodness, it was so good!
John and I love to get a breakfast sandwich and cup of coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts on the weekends. It’s one of our “things”. He’ll wake up on Saturday morning and head out to Dunkin’ Donuts while I get Kayleigh dressed and ready for the day. She loves it when he brings her back a bagel with cream cheese. It’s her favorite! We are pretty lucky that there are several Dunkin’ Donuts locations around our home, so we can stop there whenever we want.
When I used to work outside of the home, I would stop at the Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru before going into work. All of the Dunkin’ Donuts locations around here are very popular and busy, and especially during that morning rush. America Runs on Dunkin’, after all, right?! I guess I’m not the only one who loves a little pick me up from Dunkin’ Donuts first thing in the morning. It certainly does help me get through the day a little easier! The line of cars would always be out into the road. Every once in a while, when I’m lucky enough to get out of the house that early in the morning, I still see the same scene at every Dunkin’ Donuts location around here.
