Down here all the Texaco's are Shell stations now. There are just a small amount of Texaco's left. I really don't wanna talk bout gas right now.

Some bastard siphoned a half tank of gas about 4 days ago. I went through a full tank in one week, and my town is 40 miles long from end to end. And what the heck is DD? Whatever it is, I don't think we have it here.

DD = Dunkin' Donuts, a coffee & donut shop that is VERY popular up here in New England.

Yup. According to www.dunkindonuts.com there are 5 just within my zip code. Considering my town spans several zip codes, that isn't even a full count! The standing joke is that if there isn't a DD in your town, your town isn't in New England. They are everwhere, and wildly popular. It is actually getting a bit out of control.. Not that I'll stop going there anytime soon or anything! ... DD Rocks!

It's fun to hear references to DD in pop culture. Just the other day I was watching 'Mysic River' on my GF's on-demand cable. It is a movie about a girl that gets murdered in a Boston community. The two lead detectives come out of a fancy coffee store muttering something like "..it's the same thing you get at Dunkin' Donuts, just at twice the price!"

Then in 'West Wing' Josh and Santos are in a car in rural NH *****ing about not being able to find a Starbucks.. I hollered at the screen "Just go too Dunkin' man!"

Alright, enough out of this crazy New Englander..

We have DD's here and in MD too. I can't think of one in TN where I lived but I'm sure they are there too. Doesn't matter tho, KK is much better than DD :)

Maybe for the glazed dognuts.. but not for other varieties or the coffee. DD is 80% coffee shop, 20% donut shop, despite the name. DD's coffee dominates all!

Glazed is all I eat so I guess that's the issue :)

You dunno what you're missing then. The chocolate glazed and cream filled ones rock. Like everything else that's good in this world, they will kill you, but damn they are good..

One thing DD does poorly though is breakfast sandwiches. The egg-mc-muffin still rules that roost pretty well. DD drys 'em out. Too much microwaving probably..

Nope when it comes to Glazed do-nos and all assorted other kinds. Hole-in-one do-nos are the best. We have 2 in Plant City. (oh wait its a hometown store hehehe)*walks away munchin on bag full of do-no holes*

Not a fan of chocolate anything really...
NOTHING tops the McGriddle. I don't care where it's at or who makes it, NOTHING beats the McGriddle.

I've yet to have one. I heard they are McD's all-time #1 least healthy product. Not that donuts or any other sort of fast-breakfast is really healthy. But it seems prudent to avoid the worst of the worst..

Crap.. Just noticed this is not an OT forum.. Hey Mods, any chance you can hack this into a seperate, OT thread?

That's why it's a treat, not a daily thing. And actually I started this thread and the question was answered awhile ago. Well not answered, but the lack of answers let's me know there is no definate without insider knowledge which apparently isn't present so I just keep bottles of Techron in my toolbox :)
