April Fools: No Dunkin' Donuts in Burbank... Yet

Dunkin Donuts

Pal and Dunkin' Donuts enthusiast Steve forwarded this pic of a sign that was hanging in the Disney Channel building (3800 Alameda in Burbank) on April 1. Yep, April 1 -- so despite how well-designed this is, it apparently was an April Fool's joke. (I called the building to double check, and the security guard who answered the phone confirmed that it was a gag).

Nonetheless, the Dunkin' Donuts train is steaming toward Los Angeles. A location already exists in Barstow, and one in San Diego just opened.

As a New Englander who grew up practically at the center of the DD universe, I hate to say this, but don't get your hopes up too high. Their coffee is not impressive, and their donuts? Let's just say that I LOVE donuts, but I have not had a DD donut in over a decade.
