clearly the cup was designed first, could you even imagine someone designing a product to match a logo. that’s absurd.

Oh, so says Dunkin Donuts…I see [raised eyebrow”> I don’t know that I would classify “Complementary daypart branding” as a component that is turning the world upside down. Maybe selling coffee for a fair price would be an example of innovation, or using pink and orange in their decades-old logo…What was the original question? ;^”>~

I wish I looked good in a maroon shirt (I tried it, I don’t)

I was born in a maroon shirt, and therefore won’t wear one ever again.

they put a krispey kreme next to a dunkin donuts in lombard. now the only car i ever see in front of the dd is a police car (true story). My wife feels sorry for dd. I say tough 5hit. dd needs to make pillowy donuts that melt in your mouth.
