Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks? Taste or politics?

dunkindonutsfriendsMy wife and I went to Dunkin Donuts the other day and saw they were peddling a t-shirt with the inscription “FRIENDS don’t let FRIENDS drink Starbucks”. Now I do think Dunkin Donuts has some of the best coffee you can buy when on the road, especially if you can make them put in only one third of the cream they normally do. Starbucks coffee is too burnt for my taste, so I seldom frequent the place.

This peaked my curiosity so I looked up news about Starbucks. Thanks to a news-clip via Vision To America I found the reason why it is better to go Dunkin than Starbucks.

Coffee chain Starbucks has plenty of stores across the world, and plenty in Muslim nations. But one country where they proudly will not operate is in the nation of Israel. Starbucks closed all their stores over 11 years ago in the Holy Land, and today’s announcement effectively reveals they are boycotting Israel.
The coffee chain has issued a statement announcing that neither Starbucks nor CEO Howard Schultz “provides financial support to Israel,” or to its army, in the wake of what Starbucks called “false rumors.”
The Dunkin Donuts coffee tastes
better and better.

  1. Excellent reason not to patronize Starbucks, although there are numerous others, ranging from their left-wing politics to their overpriced burnt coffee [which is why they’re often referred to as “Charbucks”!].
