DailyDirt: Donuts Everywhere!
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Who doesn’t like a good doughnut (or donut)? Okay, so maybe a significant population around the world doesn’t consume doughnuts regularly, but that could change. Doughnuts can be modified to be more savory and less sweet. These circular edibles have even been filled with curry. The possibilities are endless. If you’re hungry and interested in these not-just-for-breakfast tidbits, check out these links.
- Dunkin Donuts holds a majority market share of the US donut (doughnut) market. However, this donut chain is only recently coming back to California. [url]
- Dunkin Donuts is localizing its operations in India, downplaying the donuts and promoting veggie burgers instead. The local population just doesn’t like donuts too much, but they can still get a donut if they want one (but it’s unlikely anyone will buy a full dozen there). [url]
- Dunkin Donuts ran a bizarre ad in Thailand for its “charcoal donut” and apologized for it. The ad featured a woman in blackface holding a chocolate donut, and a human rights group called it insensitive and racist. [url]
