As the mother of a superhero, I am usually pretty alert for any sort of superhero tie-ins that come around. And as the mother of Captain America's #1 fan, Captain Alexander, I am on high alert for all things Captain America.
Which is how I have no clue how I missed the Captain America tie-in promotions at Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins this summer.
So color me stunned when we walked into Dunkin Donuts last weekend on our way to Houston and found plastic cups with a familiar looking red, white and blue shield on them.
They even had a gigantic cup, which came with three different flavors of their fruit slushy drink. And the lid was his shield.
Even though it was breakfast time, I broke all sorts of rules and let him order it. The sales associate mentioned they used to have Captain donuts last month, but not anymore.
Do I take him to Baskin Robbins this weekend, and hope they still have some Super Soldier Swirl, or the Hydra Force Sundae?
Or do I just keep my SuperMom Failure a secret?
