Super Bowl LII between the Patriots and Eagles took place this past Sunday at U.S Bank Stadium in chilly Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was an upsetting outcome for our Boston office, but both teams played phenomenal football and it was entertaining to say the least.

“America Runs on Dunkin'”, But Does Massachusetts?

Back in 2006 Dunkin’ Donuts started using the tagline “America Runs on Dunkin”. We decided to see just how applicable the tagline is to the state of Massachusetts, particularly during peak Pumpkin Spice season when Starbucks would theoretically provide the biggest challenge to that notion.
