The War Crime served up at Dunkin Donuts every October


The large version of this monstrosity- the version being shown in this ad- has 1160 calories (more than half of the number an active adult should consume over the course of a day.)  But that's not even the worst part-  it also contains 185 grams of sugar.  That's 47 teaspoons.  Of SUGAR.   That's more sugar than a dozen glazed donuts.  In ONE of these things. 

Note how slim the models pretending to drink this junk are.  Yeah, if you want to stay that way, you'd better continue to pretend to drink it.  Because having one of these a day for five days will, all by itself, put an extra pound of adipose tissue on that body - and I don't even want to get into what it's doing for your blood. 

And if that's not enough to make you stay far away from this diabetes delivery system (and it certainly should be,) well, there's also the fat content:  40 grams, of which 22 are the fatal (saturated) variety. 

Oh well, it's only available for a month, right?  You'll be good after early November, right?  Well, check out the Peppermint Swirl Mocha coffee, which will be available at least through January- and maybe beyond, who knows.  Believe it or not, it's WORSE.  

This place has the best black coffee you can get from a drive-thru (no sugar, no fat, no calories, just flavor once you've waited an hour or so for it to cool down.)  But this stuff...oh my god....what we do to support the sugar industry and pharmaceutical industries....


  1. Thank goodness we live in a world where just about every Dunkin Donuts is near a pharmacy so you can easily swing by there right after purchasing your jumbo sugar rush, pick up your Jardiance prescription and never even get out of your car. In fact, Boehringer Ingelheim should buy Walgreens, Dunkin Donuts and Burger King for even more convenient one-stop shopping. This seems like a marriage made in heaven.

  2. I remember long ago hearing someone say that you could put sugar, salt and lard into wet cement and you could get people to eat it. This is why.
