why must you torment me so, Dunkin Donuts?

so, I had a little thing called the SUPREME OMELET the other day at Dunkin Donuts.



in a word ... SPECTACULAR. It's everything I could hope for in a breakfast sandwich, and more.

then, just now, looking at the website ... I see that I can only eat them until March 12. I can no longer imagine a world without the Supreme Omelet at Dunkin Donuts.

You could always stockpile them.

Just because they stop selling them March 12, doesn't mean you can't buy a lot of them and save them for later in the year

What does that even mean? He didn't mention Kayne West or George Bush, so how could this be even remotely funny?

As someone who isn't all that interested in politics at the moment, I find that phrase funny almost every time I see it.

I don't think I've ever been to a Dunkin Donuts. That kind of makes me sad, now that I think about it.

I have no problem with this thread, I just find it extremely funny how large the gray area here apparently is, surrounding what's considered spam and what's not.

That's all I had to say. Please continue your conversation about the NEW SUPREME OMELET, AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME AT DUNKIN DONUTS.

It gets on my nerves because it's ultimately a lazy joke that doesn't mean anything. It's like quoting Austin Powers or saying "I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you!"

yeah, you're on to me. I signed up for DVDTalk five years ago (holy crap, it's been five years?) and posted 5000+ stupid things, just biding my time to spam for a breakfast sandwich that may or may not be invented.

Calling me a woman and saying I am menstruating isn't a personal attack?

Mmmm, no. I don't recall calling you a woman. Anyway don't take it out on me because your being a sensitive Cindy today and got all peeved about a stupid George Bush joke that somebody else said. Life is a little to short to get all upset about something somebody said on the internet.

Mod note: While I agree w/ this, it's also too short to go around antagonizing people on the I'net. I suggest everyone drop this back and forth and get back to the topic of fat/cholesterol filled[1] artery hardening breakfast foods or move on to other threads.

thanks

I wish I hadn't seen that.

is it the good cholesterol? or the bad cholesterol?

looking at the allergy data, I wonder if I can have mine made with crustaceans. a little crabmeat and old bay in there would make it even better!

I was curious and had to find the nutrition info on this thing:

Nutrition Facts
Serving Size 1 sandwich
Servings 1
Calories 590
Calories from Fat 340

% Daily Value, Calories: 2,000
Total Fat 38g 58%
Saturated Fat 13g 65%
Trans Fat 6g
Cholesterol 260mg 87%
Sodium 1040mg 43%

Total Carbohydrates 42g 14%
Dietary Fiber 1g 4%
Sugar 4g
Protein 21g

Looks like it completely beats the McDonald's Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddle on all levels.

Edit: Ah well, looks like I was beaten to the punch by Nemein's edit.
