rachael ray and dunkin donuts

she's supposedly now helping to develop new 'better for you" options? What will those be, squash donuts? She was quoted as saying "having grown up in the northeast, I have a deep appreciation for dunkin donuts" What does that mean. She gets on my nerves. Why is she so admired?

I think she's admired (not that I've ever seen her show, this is just my impression) precisely because she's "just like normal folks." You know, she can admit she likes a non-gourmet doughnut.

Hey, I'm from New England. I like Dunkin' Donuts. Doesn't mean I eat 'em every day -- more like the one a year I have, I REALLY appreciate. Having plebian tastes or the occasional fattening treat isn't a moral failing.

she gets on my nerves, too. Ick.

How 'bout some muffins that aren't the size of a cabbage? Or "low fat" muffins that have less than the 13 grams of fat that they currently have?

Donuts are actually one of the "lightest" items on their menu. I stick with my working class coffee with milk and splenda. :-)

I also think it's the DnD coffee that New Englanders are so wild about.

I agree with you- I got a $15 gift card over christmas for Dunkin Dounuts and I tried their coffee twice and throught they were both terrible. I ended up getting dounut holes for my kids and not getting anything for me there.

Amen on the Dunkin Donuts coffee. We used to mail order their coffee beans and grind them fresh in our house for the most divine coffee on the planet. But when I revived our mail order subscription recently, the coffee tasted ho-hum and I cancelled our order.

A Dunkin' Donut is around 250 calories. I have one pretty much every Friday, AS my breakfast. I know that my coworkers bring in pastries on Fridays, so I skip my breakfast at home in favor of ONE pastry at work. I get to indulge in the treat, and not just stand by watching others indulge. And, it's actually a little lower in calories than my normal breakfast. Sure, it doesn't keep me full quite as long, but, since I eat it later, it evens out. Dunkin' Donuts is not the devil, nor are the donuts themselves (though maybe the 700-calorie muffins are!) Rachael Ray is great, she seems like a real everything-in-moderation kind of girl!

OP, you are bitter

She's admired for being perky and normal, so not the usual celeb.

She has a positive outlook, she's bubbly, and the girl can cook!

What's your beef with her? Do you take what people say literally?

Lighten up LOSER.

Oh, god. The irony of the last poster saying to "lighten up." Thanks for the giggle.
