Dunkin’ Donuts Fulfills Prophecy, Opens Store In California

As it was foretold in the early days (of 2013), Dunkin’ Donuts, the chain once banished from the shores of the Pacific Southwest (okay, so the few that existed closed in the ’90s because of slow sales) has returned to sugar-up the mornings of Californians (or at least those who happen to be near the one open location in Santa Monica).

Remember All The Great Donuts That Built This Nation With Free Donuts Today

Dunkin’ Donuts Debuts Eggs Benedict Sandwich With Cream Cheese-ish Stuff As Hollandaise

Due to its tricky-to-make-at-home nature, Eggs Benedict is often treated as the darling of the brunch menu. But Dunkin’ Donuts has circumvented that whole thing by debuting its new Eggs Benedict breakfast sandwich, using a cream cheese-ish sort of spread to replace the the traditional Hollandaise sauce, and an egg patty instead of poached eggs.

McDonald’s Says Dunkin’ Donuts Menu Is Too Similar, Sues To Block Nearby Store

While fast food burger joints have battled over turf and market share for decades, it’s always seemed like Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonald’s were able to live in relative peace since their core products were very different.
