Dunkin' Donuts introduces new double-walled paper cups
(WENY) – Changes are coming to Dunkin' Donuts. If you drink Dunkin' Donuts coffee, you will no longer have to plan on double cupping anymore. The chain announced an end to the practice this week.
“Double-cupping” is when you place an iced beverage that is in a plastic cup inside of a foam cup for insulation. Dunkin' is phasing out of its foam cups nationwide. Instead, it will use the new double-walled paper cups. This means there will be no need for a cup sleeve or a second cup.
Dunkin' says all of its locations in New England will have the thicker cups in place by December 1st. The rest of the country that does not already have the new paper cups are expected to receive them by next year.
