dunkin donuts

The DUNKIN’ DONUTS logo throughout the years.

I well remember when I had my first donut. It was 1990, and Twin Peaks premiered on television in Holland. First time I heard the word “donut”—I thought it was a peculiar word. Do-nut. Peculiar shape too. Too young to drink hot black coffee, I got into the Peaks mood by eating copious amounts of donuts; it got so bad I became utterly sick of them and couldn’t stand the sight of them for about 10 years. Story of my life.
