Dunkin Donuts, which originated in 1948, is the beloved nemesis of Starbucks. The heated debate between the two coffee joints has been ongoing for years. Dunkin Donuts, however, brings the better part of breakfast. With better breakfast options, cheaper and better coffee and quicker service, Dunkin has never been one to fail.

Firstly, donuts. The donuts at Dunkin Donuts alone outshine Starbucks. Even though Starbucks has donuts, they don’t have nearly as many fun flavors of donuts Dunkin has. From chocolate glazed to maple frosted, Dunkin Donuts flavors are far more original than the sad and lonely old-fashioned donut Starbucks decided to add to their overpriced array of baked goods.

Another item that Dunkin Donuts has that Starbucks lacks is hash browns. Crispy, fried potatoes are an essential part to fast-food breakfast, so not having them is just a disgrace. Dunkin hash browns are savory and delicious; Starbucks could never match that.

Dunkin Donuts is also cheaper, and you get more bang for your buck! For example, a small 16-ounce iced coffee at Dunkin costs $1.59, while a tall size, comparable to a size small, is only 12 ounces and costs $2.25 at Starbucks. Ironically, the Starbucks 16 ounce grande, which is comparable to a size medium, is the same size as a Dunkin small and costs over a dollar more at $2.65. Why pay more for less? Dunkin also charges 10 cents less for a non-dairy milk substitute than Starbucks charges.

To conclude, Dunkin is the finer choice for a breakfast and coffee run. Save yourself the pain of lesser quality coffee for a steeper prices. As we all know, America runs on Dunkin.
