Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Dunkin’ Donuts

One the most enjoyable aspects of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the show’s indefatigable optimism. No matter what life throws at the series’ eponymous heroine (Ellie Kemper), she never loses her energetic and upbeat attitude. And in a subversive twist, the character’s relentless positivity isn’t a reflection of naiveté. Having spent 15 years of her life in captivity, Kimmy is well aware of how cruel people can be. However, she remains resolved to not let the sourness of life overpower its sweetness. For that reason, it’s a good idea to pair a Kimmy binge-watch with some goodies from Dunkin’ Donuts.

Despite the eatery’s name, Dunkin’ does more than just donuts. They stock an array of delicious sandwiches that are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch and idyll snacking. In particular, its Angus steak, egg and cheese sandwich provides all the carbs and protein you’ll need to get through a day of a vigorous TV watching. To drink, either a steamy mocha latte or frozen French vanilla coffee. And to round things off, a few fresh baked donuts. At least one glazed donut should be in your order, as should one jelly-filled and one chocolate or chocolate-topped treat. For maximum Schmidt synchronicity, add a pink frosted donut with sprinkles.

The sugar and caffeine rush provided by your Dunkin’ haul will put you in the proper state of mind to enjoy Kimmy’s latest set of adventures. Much like Ms. Schmidt herself, you’ll be full of energy, determination and probably a little bit of jitteriness.
