Snapshot: Dunkin' Donuts vs Starbucks: Where do you stand?

By Matt Carroll, Boston Globe | June 17, 2010
Coffee drinkers mostly fall into two camps -- Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks. You tend to love one and hate the other. Dunkin' shops outnumber Starbucks almost 10 to 1 in Massachusetts, but that doesn't deter Starbucks lovers, who find Dunkin's brew bland and unsophisticated. And Dunkin' drinkers roll their eyes at what they feel is the pretensions of the Starbucks buyer and his burned java. Where do you stand? And if you're interested in finding the DD or Starbucks nearest you, here's a handy map.
