I Am Going to Get So Fat!!

Oh SHIT!!!

From today’s Post-Gazette:

Dunkin' Donuts apparently has spotted a huge hole in the Pittsburgh market. The Massachusetts-based purveyor of doughnuts, coffee and other baked goods said yesterday it reached the largest store development agreement in history, signing a deal with Heartland Coffee Co. of Pittsburgh for 105 restaurants in Allegheny County in the next several years. The first new stores will open at undisclosed locations within 18 months, the company said. There currently are 10 Dunkin' Donuts in the Pittsburgh area.

I don’t even like donuts. What I do like, however, is Dunkin’ Donuts egg-and-cheese bagel. It’s the only really gross fast food item (excluding the Taco Bell bean burrito, and that’s not even that gross) that I really enjoy, and at 15 grams of fat apiece, no light breakfast. They’re a tough score around here, as the downtown location closed last year. Also, going to Dunkin’ Donuts is one of the few nice memories I have of visiting my ex-boyfriend in Philadelphia. Actually, it’s the only one. Anyway.

Also, 105 stores…estimate 20 employees per store, that’s 2100 new jobs in the southwestern PA area. With the rising minimum wage, these will be decent jobs for a lot of people. I am pretty awesomely psyched on this.

Remember this guy?

I love Dunkin' Donuts so much more than Krispy Kreme.

I would give my left arm [I need my right arm to eat them] if I could eat just donuts for the rest of my life and not get fat.

It would be rude to boycott their bagels/donuts. You're just going to have to eat them
