Dunkin’ Donuts wants you to know that their coffee cup is all about Christmas. Take that, Starbucks

The  battle between Starbucks and  Dunkin’ Donuts has expanded into new territory: Christmas. Days after the Seattle-based coffee maker released an understated red holiday cup devoted to “inclusion,” as the company put it, New England based Dunkin’ Donuts  offered its less-nuanced alternative: a white cup with what looks like a Christmas wreath around the word “Joy.”

Just as Starbucks was feeling the burn from pastors, social media users and even Donald Trump over its plain red holiday cup, Dunkin’ Donuts turned up the heat, with a seasonal vessel filled to the brim with Christmas cheer. “No more ‘Merry Christmas’ at Starbucks. No more,” Trump said.

The Starbucks press release about its cup, focused on the design’s “quietness,” did not even include the word “Christmas,” Dunkin seemed to revel in the holiday in a recent announcement.

“For another fun and affordable gift for anyone who runs on Dunkin’,” the announcement said. “Dunkin’ Donuts offers a host of holiday merchandise, including limited-edition branded holiday ornaments in five fun choices, including a Dunkin’ Donuts Ugly Christmas Sweater, a snowman, a holiday ball, a Dunkie Snow Globe and a box of the brand’s famous donuts. Dunkin’ Donuts also offers branded mugs, tumblers, gift baskets, and more.”

None of Dunkin’s schwag featured Jesus Christ on the cross. But at least one Christian group – North Carolina’s Faith Driven Consumer, devoted to “creating space in the American marketplace for those who hold to a biblical worldview” – was throwing its weight behind D&D.
Dunkin’ Donuts seemed pleased with itself, even retweeting a very Christmas-y message from a customer: “DunkinDonuts sugar cookie latte literally tastes like Christmas morning in a cup.”

If the “Joy” cup was in the works before the Starbucks dust-up, didn’t that show that D&D was more Christmas-y than its competitor in the first place?

“We believe this conveys the happiness and spirit of the holiday season in a way that resonates with our guests,” Scott Hudler, a Dunkin’ executive, said in a statement, as New York’s Pix 11 reported.

Consumers were pleased with D&D’s choice, the Dunkin’ Donuts cups have been applauded by conservatives everywhere who love that they celebrate and honor the Christmas season

So when out to get coffee remember Dunkin’ Donuts and boycott Starbucks.


Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus … SO I PRANKED THEM … and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow –> Joshua Feuerstein
