In October 2011 I decided to give up coffee.  I did it for numerous reasons. I had read a book stating coffee can dry out your body and my acupuncturist told me the same thing. I also was consuming too much caffeine, so I decided it was time to just drink tea instead. I made it for almost a year until this happened…..

My cousins had been talking about Dunkin Donut coffee on Facebook for months. The moment we landed in Newark I found a Dunkin Donuts. Eeekkk!!! I decided I needed to try it immediately! Well I bought a medium regular iced vanilla coffee. The most caffeine I had in almost a year was 2-3 cups of green tea max. I was WIRED for the entire day. I went all day on 2 hours of sleep and felt completely fine.

Now that I am back home all I want is a pumpkin spice latte from Dunkin Donuts. California doesn’t have Dunkin Donuts, so I am crap out of luck! I tried the Starbucks pumpkin spice iced latte… is half the amount for a $1 more than Dunkin Donuts. It is not the same. ::::pouts::::

On our way to NYC we stopped off at a Dunkin Donuts. I was stuck in the way back of the vehicle, so my mom offered to get me a coffee. When mom was waiting inside I sent a text asking her to also bring me 16 donut holes. She came back with a box of 25. I cracked up! I was only joking about the donut holes and she actually tried to get me 16. 

Oh how I miss you Dunkin Donuts….my wallet and my waist do not miss you one little bit! Until we meet again my dear friend. ::::mu ah:::

You don't have Dunkin Donuts?!?!

Do you have a Keurig Coffee Machine? I know you said you gave up coffee but if you ever wanted a treat, Dunkin Donuts does make K Cups. Dave gets sometimes.
