  1. I haven’t been there for awhile, but don’t they ask you how many cream and sugar you want in it? I know McDonald’s always ask you.

  2. I grew up outside of Boston and I can thank many extra overtime hours to DD! I believe a “Medium regular” coffee is 2 tsp sugar, 2 pumps of cream… obviously, this would change for a small or large coffee. I have also noticed that they have you specify cream and sugar now vs just ordering a regular.

  3. In Connecticut, it was 3 tsp of sugar/ 3 pumps/packages of cream for a medium.
    Here’s the information I was told when I was trained.
    Here’s some additional information (Note the same applies for ice coffee):
    2/2 for a small.
    3/3 for a medium.
    4/4 for a large.
    5/5 for an extra large.
    If the person asks for dark, then you subtract 1 cream. If the person asks for light, usually you add one cream. Same thing with sugar.
    It probably differs per franchise/store though.

  4. I work there and have for many years. 3 tsp sugar and 3 standard size creams like the kind on the table in sit down breakfast restaurants. It comes from a machine that is marked x thru xl for sizes. So 3 and 3 are in a medium which don’t forget it 14 oz. So adjust accordingly for however many ounces of coffee your drinking.

  5. “A medium coffee regular has three cream , three sugar ,” said Ron DeJoseph, who works at the Willington, Conn. Dunks. “Three and three” was the standard answer for most Dunkin ‘ Donuts locations throughout New England. Three and three for a medium, two and two for a small, four and four for a large.

    As far as I am aware of, ‘standard’ as most folks seem to define it is a regional thing.
    Where I live, if you just ask for a coffee at Dunkin, you get a medium sized cup of black coffee. No cream, no sugar…straight black in a cup.
    If you want milk, cream, or sweeteners, you have to ask for them and specify how much of each you want.

  7. A “Regular Coffee” is 2 and 2, sugars and cream. I am allergic to dairy, I said I wanted a regular coffee, thinking it would be black, nearly swole my tongue at the first taste… Always order Black coffee at the DD

  8. Your profile says you live in San Francisco. You have four DDs in your area with more planned
    Dunkin’ Donuts opens Feb. 1 in South San Francisco
    Regardless, the ratio is 1 tsp sugar/1 Creamer pump (about the same as a .375 oz per little tub)

  9. Too much! Sugar,cinnamon,butter,bacon,caramel and peanut butter
    are the most over used items in America. Just look at the
    average middle aged people and their avoir de poi!!
    Lets face it:we are all getting fat!!

  10. Way too much.
    I personally have seen my sister put in 6 sugars and half a cup of milk in Dunkin Donuts coffee. I can only imagine how bad the coffee must be, if you need that much help to drink it.
    Now, before you think that I have never had there coffee. I had a DD in my old neighborhood, it needed a drive thru. But it was so bad. It needed a lot of sugar and milk, so you could drink it.
    Sorry to say that it has never changed

  11. When I worked at DD, a “regular” coffee would have 2 tsp sugars and cream/milk that equaled to lighter than “dark” coffee and yet darker than “light” coffee, if that makes sense. You get the hang of it in a short time.

  12. First, yes it is light cream. Second each size just adds one of each a sweetener and dairy from the base amount of 2 which is a small.
    Small has 2 cream 2 sugar
    Medium 3&3
    Large 4&4
    Extra large 5×5
    Extra extra means one more of each added to the standard amount based on size and light & sweet is 2 more over the standard amount

  14. If you let the folks behind the counter add your cream and sugar, then the answer is probably – too much. Increasingly, Americans can’t avoid sugar in their food. At least in DD, you can do as I do. I ask for the cream I think I need – usually more than they would give me when it’s up to them – and one packet of sugar at most, which is usually far less than the default amount. When I can, I don’t use sugar at all. I use Splenda mostly, I ask for one packet and actually use only one half of it.
    To digress: The US government subsidizes corn farming, so corn that’s eaten as such by humans is only a fraction of what’s (over-)produced. The rest is fed to livestock or used as feedstock for oil and starch/glucose products. Because of the oversupply of corn, the profitable use of the lattermost is to turn it first into glucose sugar. Glucose, called corn sugar for this reason, is not really as sweet tasting as fructose molecular companion of glucose in common table (aka cane) sugar. So, corn sugar by itself is not an optimal product. To make it so, some of the glucose product is enzymatically converted into fructose. The balance between glucose and fructose contents can be precisely adjusted to yield a range of syrupy products. This is the origin of that ingredient found near the top of many processed foods called ‘high-fructose corn syrup’, which isn’t corn syrup at all, but tastes sweet. And it’s dirt cheap. We have an epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes in the US, and the cause is laid to the heavy use of HFCS in our foods. Once, I went shopping for shrimp cocktail sauce in my local supermarket because I was bringing shrimp cocktail to a pot-luck and I didn’t want to make my own sauce, despite the fact that it’s really easy to make. I had to look at 4 brands — among others there’s one good thing about the American supermarket and it’s variety — before I could find one without sugar in it. I mean, its a product that’s supposed to be sour and tangy, so what purpose does sugar serve in shrimp cocktail? And if for some reason anybody wanted sugar with their shrimp and tomato sauce, they can just go and ask the host for some and make shrimp-tomato candy. I could go on, but take my advice. Ask for your own cream and sugar and add to taste. Your taste, that is.

  15. Whatever amount you ask for. The default is they’ll make it black unless you ask for an amount of cream, milk, or sugar substitute or you can add your own at the end of the counter.

  16. Sugar is measured by tsp..approximately. Cream is actually measured by weight. Both the machines are supposed to be kept to strict standards but rarely are,which makes it difficult to give exact measurements. Dunkin uses a heavier cream with %18 fat.

  17. I don’t have coffee at Dunkin Donuts every often. But every time I do, I always have my coffee black without sugar. I have never noticed they served standard coffee with my black coffee being non-standard. My observation is only relevant for Thailand. Perhaps, they have a different practice in the East Coast of the US.

  18. Coffee is served black. When you ask for cream or sugar, the counter person asks you how much. The amount is measured by a machine. A large sugar is 4 teaspoons. Medium is 3, small sugar is 2 teaspoons. A similar dipensing system for milk, cream and skim milk dispenses up to 1/4 cup at a time. You can also get green tea herbal tea black tea espresso cappuccino latte mocha and best of all Coolattas many different flavors of frozen drinks. Why do you ask? Are you trying to get to the bottom of the deliciousness?


  19. Too much, in my opinion. Just about every Dunkin Donuts I’ve been to drown my innocent coffee with so much cream and sugar that the coffee taste gets lost. My advice is to order it black and keep a small thermos of creamer with you in your car- then you can add as much ( or little) as you wish.

  20. Best way to find out the answer to this question is to Google ‘Dunkin Donuts Coffee’ nutrition, because you need to define what kind and size of coffee drink you are referring to.
