As Americans see the consequences of rapid inflation, many are upset to see it impacting their favorite coffee places, including Dunkin’ Donuts.
In response to rising costs of goods, Dunkin’ Donuts has reportedly increased the price of menu items and ended food deals.
The increase was 8% caused by inflation which was reported in January.

It hasn’t been reported if prices have risen even more since January.
Food deals are also ending.
There used to be a two for two deal on breakfast wraps, which no longer exists.
