IN WHICH WE EXPLAIN...

A long time ago, the Dunkin Donuts commercial consisted of a guy who would wake up and proclaim "Time to make the donuts!". And he proclaimed this over and over, day after day.

I feel like I am moving my q-snaps on Plum Pudding over and over, day after day.

Thus, the obscure reference.

Sorry to confuse, Dearies, but out if curiosity, did ANYBODY know what I meant, or did I dream the whole Dunkin Donuts guy?

(It wouldn't be the first time...that's for sure!)

  2. Not a dream! I remember the Dunkin' Donuts man. It was long before they came out with "America runs on Dunkin".

  12. You are absolutely right! I often find myself quoting old tag lines from obscure commercials. You go, girl.

  13. I remember it, so does my family...we usually twist it and say "I don't want to make the donuts, I just want to eat them"

  14. I knew exactly what you meant!

  15. Haha...ahhh makes sense (not LOL) Must have been before hubby and I moved to the east coast from the west coast in the 90s. As a West coaster we grew up with Winchell's Donuts...yumm! Anyhoo I guess I either never noticed or was too busy raising the kiddos for the DD dude to sink in...thanks for the explanation and the giggles, you always come through. Have a great day

    1. A fellow west coast Winchell's aficionado! Well met, good lady! My hubby is from MA, the birthplace of Dunkin Donuts, while I hail from CA the birthplace of Winchell's. We currently live in Asheville, NC, which until fairly recently, had neither. Sigh. We now have a DD, but, obviously, no Winchell's. My favorite donut ever is the Winchell's plain old-fashioned donut. I've never seen that donut anywhere else since leaving CA. Big sad face.

  16. Yup, remembered it right away. And, when I brushed my teeth this morning, I "wondered where the yellow went," even though I didn't use Pepsodent! Do they even make that stuff any more?

  17. yes, I remember it well. My husband and I say it when we have to go to work but really don't feel like it...Ughh..."Time to make the donuts."

  18. Knew exactly what you meant. One has to be a certain age. Baby Brother looked confused when I asked if he remembered this. (To be truthful he often looks confused when I spring this stuff on him.) He's 10 years younger so….

  20. Are you kidding? Of course we knew what meant! My husband grew up in Salem, MA, not far from the birthplace of Dunkin Donuts. Silly Spinster. :)

  21. Ahhh, now I understand! LOLOLOL! Thanks for that! There are a few Dunkin Donuts in the UK - but I've never come across any - even on holiday! Probably centred in the cities where I avoid!

  23. Oh, yes! That's what I said for the four years I made pumpkin donuts for the Gmen's high school football dinners!
