What’s In A Name?

That’s a big question as two well-known business’s change their name. Dunkin’ Donuts is dropping the “donuts” and will now be known as just “Dunkin.” Okay, why? They company says they want to highlight other items on the menu like coffee, etc. A new logo is on the way with the changes coming after the first of the year.


Weight Watchers President and Chief Executive Officer Mindy Grossman speaks at a global employee event in New York. Weight Watchers says it is renaming itself to WW to focus more on overall wellness and not just dieting. (Amy Sussman/AP Images for Weight Watchers, File)And maybe after you’d had one too many “Dunkin’s” you’ll head for WW. What’s that? That is what Weight Watchers is about to rebrand itself as. Another why? The weight loss chain says its’ “Weight Watchers reimagined,” and the brand’s new tagline is “Wellness that Works.” WW is taking a hard look at what’s important to us in addition to losing those pounds and making permanent changes. Trying to eat healthier, eat cleaner and become more active all enter into what WW wants to be all about. Personally I think it’s a good move. Check out the full story here.


Hazelnut Spread M&Ms will debut in April 2019.So not fair…but sound so delicious. How about something new from M&M’s – “Hazelnut Spread”, which features a hazelnut spread center covered in milk chocolate. But don’t go running to the store quite yet. They’re set to hit the shelves in April but will definitely stand out in a teal colored bag. Oh, and M&M chocolate bars will be hitting the shelves as well just in time to tuck in Christmas stockings. Lucky us – they are set to be a permanent addition to their brand.


That’s enough on the plate for now in Ann Kelly’s Kitchen but  you know I love to hear from you – where are those cool new places I need to check out – or stay away from, best cookies around and just when do all those farmer’s markets kick back in?
