Some of you may remember that I was lamenting the lack of a Dunkin’ Donuts in my area. That situation has now been remedied with the arrival of a Dunkin’ Donuts in Round Rock, TX.
Personally, I’m ecstatic. Even though I won’t get there very often it’s nice to know that the option is there if I ever feel like going. The store is pretty nice and it has places to sit at. It’s different than the one I used to go to in Parsippany, NJ, in that you can’t sit at the counter. That’s kind of a bummer, but I suppose it’s the way it is here in the 21st century.
I did get a donut, though. I had to. And it’s just as good as I remembered them being. I’m not a big fan of Krispy Kreme (and their close-by store has shut down), and the donuts at my grocery store are pretty horrendous when compared to a DD.
Some other changes, since the last time I was at one, are the inclusion of “value meals.” When I went to DD the only value meal they had was, “bowl bread donut.” Or, a bowl of soup, a piece of bread, and a donut of your choice. Also, there’s specialty coffee (even though I think their coffee is good enough that they don’t need them).
Now I have my pizza place, and my donut place. Wicked.
