SuperMom Failure

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.

These aren't exactly places we frequent, but its not unheard of for me to step foot in one of these stores. Alex and I have even had more than one conversation as to how surprising it was that neither McDonalds or Burger King had any kind of Happy Meal featuring Cap.

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.

So I did a bit of internet sleuthing today, and it turns out that I also missed this tie-in at Baskin Robbins.

So now I'm torn.

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?


  1. I can't wait to find out what happened.

  2. That was me, Erica.
