A few years ago, I had to give up coffee for a few months, and it was a dark point in my life with no happiness. Iâ€™m only slightly exaggerating.
I love everything about coffeeâ€”the way it warms me up inside, the morning ritual of it, and, obviously, the pep in my step it gives me. Ask my parents, my coworkers or my good friends, and theyâ€™ll tell you: you do NOT want to see pre-coffee Theodora.
And since I grew up in New Jersey, I have mad love in my heart for Dunkinâ€™ Donuts, and itâ€™s really my favorite coffee. You can keep your fancy French-pressed coffee and bla bla bla artisan coffee, but I love me a good cup of Dunkinâ€™ and will even walk out of my way in the morning to get it. (Thatâ€™s saying a lot for this lazy at heart girl.) Those seven years in DC were a dark time; Dunkinâ€™ only started getting a hold on that market my last year there. Until then, Iâ€™d drive over to Capitol Hill or out to Arlington to get some. In college, when there were even fewer, friends and I took special pilgrimages during finals out to Maryland and Virginia to find our beloved DD.
But since I largely gave up dairy a few years ago, my only beef with the DD was their lack of non-dairy milk options. I canÂ tolerate some milk in my coffee, but I really prefer non-dairy, and almond at that.
WELL! Clearly Iâ€™m not the only one, and Dunkinâ€™ Donuts finally listened, and is now providing Almond Breeze at select locations.
You can go to their store locator to see if your location is one of them (that little AM will denote that it is.)
My drink of choice? French vanilla with Almond Breeze. Boom.
