For $6, Dunkin' or Starbucks?

Stinkytofu10 Stinkytofu10
If you had a limited budget of $6, and assuming you've tried both Dunkin and Starbucks before, which one would you go to spend $6? You can get any product(s) at either store, as long as you stay within budget. Give your reasonings, and if you know of any good deals at these chains, let us know!

Starbucks. It's not my favorite, but it's better than DD. And I would probably spend my $6 on a iced caramel macchiato. Unless it's seasonal, then I'd get a pumpkin spice latte. I don't really like their bakery items.

I could get more Dunkin Donuts donuts with $6 than I could get Starbucks coffee with $6.

Starbucks. Although I'm trying to think of anything that they sell for fewer than six dollars...

Starbucks. Donuts don't give you a good caffeine buzz like a flavored coffee does.

I think spending $6 on coffee is absolutely insane. Especially considering it is one of the world's most abundant commodities. Go buy yourself a 5 dollar coffee maker and for the extra dollar you can buy a 10lb bag of columbian coffee.

dunkins. it's a better selection of food (although mcdonalds is better than both) and the coffee is NOT italian roast. italian roasts have to be cooked exactly correct, or it burns. for coffee I would also choose mcdonalds.

Hate coffee, love doughnuts, and you can get a LOT more at Dunkin for $6.

FUCK STARBUCKS. FUCK THEM SOOOOOOO MUCH!!

They're corporate bullies. They go around specifically targeting wonderful little mom and pop coffee shops to put them out of business. This has happened several times in my area alone. The one that really got me was when the targeted the coffee shop I grew up going to. The place was awesome. On top of having great coffee and baked goods they had live music and provided a great hang out spot for high school and college students. They were also very involved in the community. Well, Starbucks knew damn well they couldn't compete. So, before they opened their shop directly across the street, they bought the building that the other coffee shop was in and wouldn't let them renew their lease.

Yes, I know this type of corporate strong-arming happens all the time, and that this is how capitalism works, etc. But that doesn't mean I have to like it or Starbucks. And, yes, I also know that DD is a corporation. However, I believe most DDs are franchises. At least the ones in my area are. And the DDs in my area are locally owned. Probably not the case everywhere, but that's still a better record than Starbucks. Also, I'm pretty sure DD doesn't actively go after little coffee shops since the demographic is completely different.

Anyway, FUCK STARBUCKS.

Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel!

Yeah, I'd go DD coffee over Starbuck's bitter swill. It's like the McDonalds of chain coffee houses.

DD. Their coffee is great, and not ridiculously overpriced.

DD, definitely. The coffee is yummier, cheaper, and they have donuts/better baked goods too. Your $6 would go much further.

I've always preferred starbucks over dunkin'

I've tried both, and dunkin' coffee just really doesn't do anything for me at all. I find it incredibly over-priced at both places also. Although I feel starbucks put's more effort into some of there more exotic/elegant blends. In any case, it's expensive and a treat I get myself from time to time.
