It's Thanksgiving in Buttercupland

I realize Thanksgiving came and went in Canada last month and the rest of the United States won't be celebrating Thanksgiving until next week, but thanks to my friends at Dunkin' Donuts it is officially Thanksgiving in Buttercupland.
 
The Dunkin' Donuts Turkey Feast Sandwich...turkey, stuffing, Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce on a ciabotta roll. The presentation wasn't elegant, but it made the perfect quick lunch.

I generally write about companies that are local to New York City, but I also try to keep up with national trends. As a New Englander I grew up with Dunkin' Donuts. There is a branch just a block from where I live, as well as many throughout New York City. They've added some specialty coffees to the menu -- yes, macchiatos that are really good -- and tasty sandwiches that make good lunch treats.

I love Thanksgiving and can -- and do! -- happily eat turkey and cranberries any time of the year. I bought cranberries today to make my cranberry ginger relish for Thanksgiving dinner. I was a little skeptical when I was asked to sample the Turkey Feast Sandwich for Buttercupland. But I found it a very nice taste of Thanksgiving when I'm too busy/on the run/savoring the flavors of Thanksgiving. Thanks, Dunkin' Donuts friends for a delicious lunch and a great start to Thanksgiving. 
 
I save doughnuts for a treat, but it's hard to resist the display at my local branch of Dunkin'. The Candy Cane Crunch Doughnut is calling out to me.

Today we're still in autumn in New York. Actually it feels like early autumn today. Tomorrow is supposed to turn cooler and I will take out my gloves for real. I plan to be out in the next few weeks with scarf and gloves taking pictures of New York decorated in holiday splendor.  

As ever, thanks for visiting and have a lovely Saturday!

Please note: I was given the Turkey Feast Sandwich by Dunkin' Donuts for my review. The opinions are all mine.

I am kind of thankful I don't have a Dunkin' Donuts close to me. Or, any kind of doughnut shop! So much temptation. I did try the new turkey cranberry sandwich at Subway last week (our town's closest thing to fine dining) and it wasn't bad. I love cranberries nearly anyway they can be done.

cranberry-ginger relish? wow.
Happy Thanksgiving -
Happy Dunkin' Donuts . . . i am grateful they are far enough down the road I must CHOOSE to go there - then, i purchase boxes to surprise people . . .

because, if they were along a walking path . . . I'd not be able to resist.
love & love,

Looks tasty! I love Dunkin Donuts. I was shocked when I got one that was stale and tasteless in, of all places, Providence, RI!!

Best,

When we lived in Columbus, GA, my husband and I ate lunch at Dunkin Donuts frequently. I had forgotten that they are "more than donuts"! Their lunches were excellent.

Carol, I could eat turkey and dressing all year long. So I think your sandwich looks very tasty. One thing about visiting places to eat there...you can walk to and from to help burn some calories. Blessings to you and yours for a wonderful Thanksgiving day filled with good food and good times. xoxo, Susie
