Hmmm, went in to a Dunkin Donuts store in Bethesda, MD (near old Barnes & Noble) to get my usual doughnuts & low fat (or reduced fat) milk as I do in other doughnut places.
And, boy/girl, was I surprised. No low or reduced fat milk, only whole milk:
- 14 g fat, 9 g saturated fat & 0.5 g TRANS fat.
=== Even 7/11 sells 1% milk (regular or chocolate).
Yes, I realize it is a fattening food establishment but I like 1% or 2% milk with my ‘donuts’. I only do this richness, fattening ritual once in a while and try not to go too crazy overboard with other mind blowing fattening choices like eclairs or apple fritters or m&m candied doughnuts, just glaze & chocolate frosted.
Guess I’ll start skipping DD due to that lack of milk choices – but then again, maybe it’s the clientele demand for all fattening choices with no regard for other less fattening items.
Someone on facebook just mentioned it might only be that particular store doing that (which is likely) as some that she had been to typically carries – light cream, skim and almond – none of which I care about. I only care for just 1% or 2% milk & coffee (w/low fat non-flavored creamer & splenda before anyone makes a comment) to sip on while studying and waiting for my car service to be completed. I will say though, if anyone ever produces flavored creamer with less fat & calories (think french vanilla or irish) – I’M IN, I’M IN, I’M IN…
I’ll have to explore another couple of DD stores to see if that is so to see if that is so. But, I won’t be going back to that DD store, near the car dealership where I take my car in for service.
