Dunkin' Donuts at Taste of Minnesota ... without donuts
Hey, could y'all come back with some donuts?

Scores of Minnesotians are psyched to have the Dunkin' Donuts set up shop in town, especially for next National Donut Day. And when we heard that Dunkin' Donuts was on tour in a big pink bus, and making a stop at Taste of Minnesota, we were going in for the high five when we realized they are not bringing us donuts.
It turns out their Big Taste Tour stop in the Twin Cities to promote Dunkin' Donuts coffee--Dunkin' Turbo--and our smiles faded. Not that we have any problem with Dunkin' Turbo, it's just that we want to be dunkin' some round pastries with holes in the center into it.
So, here is our chance to stop on down to the Dunkin' Donuts bus and let them know if they come to the Twin Cities, we will greet them eagerly with smiles and empty bellies ready to be filled. St. Paul is the fifth stop on the Turbo Tour, and they will be handing out prizes and coupons, and you can get your picture taken with their mascot. Wonder if they ever get Dunkin' groupies aboard: dudes in sweatpants and ladies in curlers? Apparently Dunkin' Donuts coffee is owned by Smucker's, and the donuts are are owned by Dunkin' Brands, but we want them to come together and bring it on home.
WHAT: A giant Dunkin' Donuts RV designed to be a coffee-brewing kitchen on wheels to dispense free coffee samples and coupons to consumers at the Taste of Minnesota.
WHEN: Friday, July 2 - Monday, July 5, 11:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. daily
WHERE: Harriet Island
