  1. Don’t recall seeing one, but it was hard to read the Yellow Pages considering the angry glaze over my eyes. The one consoling thing was all the KK’s were gone too. I couldn’t stand it otherwise.

    Now that I think about, I saw a Dunkins when I was in Kumomato, Japan, for an exercise back in 2000.
    But maybe it’s closed down since then.

  3. I like the coffee.

    Jeff_S : No longer. They are only in Korea, now:
    It is perhaps useful to note that US doughnut giant Dunkin Donuts had an unsuccessful stint in Japan in the 1970s before pulling out. Despite a global presence spanning at least 30 different countries, South Korea is the only nation in East Asia that continues to boast Dunkin Donuts shops. The viability of the business in the region is questionable.
    Mister Donut is all over the place in Japan, and moving into Taiwan, though. There used to be a Mister Donut at my train station in Yoyogi.
    And I can’t get to work in the morning without having to crawl around the slow-coach Yankees (on whose vehicles turn signals were obviously optional) creeping into Dunkin to get their coffee. THS – you want I shoud send you one of the four Dunkins within 10 minutes of my house?

    THS – Dotour has introduced bagels!

  6. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Interesting, John. Perhaps we are witnessing the worldwide demise of Dunkin Doughnuts? Soon to be completely extinct, much like the Dodo bird?

  7. Mr. Bingley says:

    No, Dunkin’s doing quite well in the non-THS markets.

  8. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Mr. Bingley, are you saying that THS is a sort of anti-DD pestidicide? Or might that be “DD-icide”?

    We have ’em all over the place up here. They’ve been merging with the Baskin-Robbins shops and spawning drive-throughs.

  10. (You smug BASTARDS MOCKING my PAIN! A chocolate filled greasy curse upon your yeasty blather.)
    Bagels, hmmm?

  11. John says:

    I was wrong. There are five Dunkin’s within a 10 minute drive of my house – I forgot the one inside the local supermarket. 😉
    I loved Doutor’s baguettes when I was over there. The bagels ought to be at least passable.

  12. INSIDE ??!!!!

  13. The_Real_JeffS says:

    That’s pretty cool, John. Send THS some pictures to post here, would you? ;-P

  14. (It’s a LUCKY DAMN THING a certain doggie don’t need no cookies sent to him no mo…)

  15. John says:

    Actually, I prefer that supermarket chain’s own donuts, in the stores where they have their own bakery and don’t farm it out to Dunkin’. That’s why I forgot about that one. I go to the one across the river with its own bakery – to avoid the ubiquitous Dunkin’. 😉

  16. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Ah, those cookies! Yum! Such memories, fighting off the other troops for the remaining crumbs……

  17. John says:

    THS – I forgot to mention that Dunkin’ pays for a little metal coffee cup holder that clips onto the push bar of the shopping carts, so that you can get your coffee and donunt, then enjoy them while shopping. Shouldn’t grocery shop while hungry, right?

  18. You are a sick…SICK man.
    I thought we were friends

    What, did you think I was kidding?
