Starbucks Coffee Pun Movie Titles

November 17, 2009

Dear Starbucks,

Don’t hire this guy. While his movie titles are pretty good, the approach is completely unscalable. Plus, his $500,000 fee is ridiculous.

Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Subscription – $6.39

January 15, 2007

After years of resistance to the temptations of caffeine, I’ve finally given in and started to drink coffee on a daily basis. The jolt of energy every morning is great, but the cost can really add up. So today’s post features Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, which is probably the best brew out there for the price you pay. You can signup for a recurring coffee subscription and have their coffee beans sent straight to your front door. Choose from Original, Dunkin’ Decaf, French Vanilla, or Hazelnut. The price for a pound of beans is $6.39, which is a hell of a lot cheaper than Peet’s or Starbucks.

Caffeinated Soap – $6.99

caffeinated soap

If that Venti cup of coffee from Starbucks doesn’t give you a strong enough jolt, then you might want to try showering with caffeinated soap. Each 4 oz. bar contains 200mg of caffeine per shower, which gives you about 12 showers per bar. The cost per shower comes out to around $0.60, which is more than twice as cheap as a small cup of coffee from Peets or Starbucks. Skeptical about the effectiveness of caffeine absorbing into your skin? This article and test might shed some light.

Caffeinated Soap available at Amazon.
