Dunkin Donuts comes to Encino… and a Giveaway!

A few days ago I was trollin’ FB as I do, when a post caught my eye. My friend Melissa had posted about a grand opening for Dunkin Donuts in ENCINO! Encino is about 6 minutes from my house. Color me excited! Now, I’m not a huge donut lover (that’s the hubby), even though there’s a donut in the DCD logo. However, I am a huge lover of the occasional delicious treat, and the Dunkin Donuts Chocolate Kreme donut fits the bill! Also, growing up in Chicago, Dunkin Donuts became a landmark of weekends – whenever a dozen donuts showed up at our house, it officially signified the start of a special weekend.

Dunkin Donuts is now open from 5 AM to 11 pm in Encino, at the intersection of Balboa and Ventura.

I headed over today for the grand opening and got myself some delicious donuts and lunch. For lunch I chose the egg and bacon sandwich on a pretzel roll. Super yummy! I loved the crunch of salt against the chewy pretzel roll. I also got a massive unsweetened iced tea ($1.99, holla), because DD knows their beverages – no watered down tea concentrates here. (Hubby is a fan of the DD coffee). I loved how all of the staff at the Encino DD were friendly, smiling, and hustlin’. It felt like a taste of the Midwest here in LA!

  1. I love DD because it reminds me of New York. It love their coolers — the ice blended coffees. I know it’s TERRIBLE for me but DELICIOUS. My cousin in NY owns a strip mall with a DD in it and I had that shit ALL THE TIME. LOL

  2. I love their regular roast coffee to buy in bags to make their delish coffee at home! It is incentive to get up early early!

  3. Hello Alyssa 🙂

    I’m doing my master’s thesis on weight loss blogging. I am specifically interested in the considerations that go before the posting entries on the blog.

    Therefore, I am looking for participants for interviews to use as part of my analysis and I was wondering, if you would be interested in participating in a 30-45 minutes Skype-interview?

    About me: I am a 24-year old master-student from Aalborg University in Denmark. I am studying at the master-program Culture, communication and globalization and specializing in Market communication and consumption.

    Please, feel free to ask any questions, you might have :).

    I hope you would be willing to participate and look very much forward to your response.

    Best regards

  4. My absolute favorite DD item would have to be the Coffee Coolatta. Since I was young, that has always been like ambrosia lol.

  5. Their sweet tea is the bomb! They actually just put a new one in, not that we didn’t have a few around my area already, but the new location is just perfect! I love their munchkins! Anything chocolate almost with filling. My husband isn’t a donut fan but I am. 🙂

  6. Thanks for bringing this topic up. I like how you
    present and maintain all of the details in addition to your overall writing
    style. Sometimes, there’s a shortage of time to read long bits, but is short and concise, I spent just
    a couple of minutes to read the whole article.
    It’s vital since no one has time to browse.
