For those planning on hibernating this winter, it just got easier to add those crucial extra layers of fat. Dunkin’ Donuts just opened in Shanghai, much to the delight of Marc van der Chijs and probably many other people. SH mag says, “This is supposed to be store number one of one hundred.” SH also suggests our city might be in the midst of a “donut war.” Aussie brand Donut King opened this month, as well. Our money is on the Americans.
UPDATE: Looks like Dunkin’ Donuts ran out of donuts at 7:30 pm today. (And it looks like former Shanghaiist contributors could be part of the reason.)
546 Fuzhou Lu, near Hubei Lu
1649 Nanjing Xi Lu, near Huashan Lu
Sadly, we couldn’t find the classic “It’s time to make the donuts” commercial. Hopefully the embedded one will do.
