CAFE CON LECHE? OR CAFFEINE WITH COFFEE?
Meet Dunkin- the Mocha Mole
How was Dunkin born?
Wait...Addicted to Caffeine?
Caffeine is one of the most commonly used drugs in everyday life. As both experience and studies have shown that one can form a physical dependence on caffeine. This dependence on caffeine for certain people can be perceived as an addiction to the drug as an individual may feel like he/she cannot function without their dose of caffeine, often taken in the form of coffee. So the theme of this mole is a mole addicted to coffee as he has become physically dependent on caffeine. Depicted by the big eyes, crazy hair, two cups of coffee and “I run on Dunkin” shirt, Dunkin cannot function without his caffeine, which translates to him not being able to function without his daily runs to Dunkin Donuts to get his caffeinated drinks.
So beside becoming addicted to it, what does Caffeine have to offer? What are its uses and purposes?
