Starbucks versus Dunkin Donuts!
It’s time the students at Iona College asked the million-dollar question: Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks? When walking through campus, it is easy to spot hundreds of coffee cups from both places, but which one is better?
In order to come to a conclusion on this phenomena, I took the time to interview a group of students to see what they think about the major differences between the two coffee connoisseurs, which can be reduced down to five major points-

The almighty coffee bean’s powers don’t end after the last sip. There are numerous ways to reuse old coffee grounds, including in gardening, house cleaning, do-it-yourself projects and beauty boosters.
Roberto Torres, owner of the Blind Tiger cafes in Tampa, says coffee grounds are a handy household hack.
“I actually pour a little bit down my pipes at home – in the sink or toilet – because it helps unclog any hair,” Torres said.
A natural degreaser, used coffee can be used to scrub pots and pans, and when put through a disposal, the gritty grounds sharpen blades.

Admit it: We live in an amped up, jittery-without-our-morning-brew, caffeine-loving society.
And it’s not just coffee. We glug big, icy sodas; sip teas, hot and cold; amp up with energy drinks, and munch on caffeinated snacks.
For most of us, the buzz is the goal. Caffeine rushes our system with feel-good chemicals, waking us up and sharpening our minds (if only for a short time). Sometimes, however, caffeine is an unintended byproduct of the foods we love — frosting, ice cream, yogurt and candy.
About 90 percent of Americans regularly consume caffeine — an average of 300 milligrams a day, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
That’s not necessarily bad. Caffeine, in moderation, has been shown to have many health benefits. Socially and economically, it’s a slam dunk.

Cheese and tea: two words that go unnoticed separately but together might cause a double take. But trust us when we say cheese tea is the drink you'll be seeing a lot more of in 2018.
Thankfully, cheese tea doesn't involve a wedge of Gorgonzola blended into your Earl Grey. Instead, a base of iced tea—traditionally jasmine, oolong or green— is topped with a fluffy cloud of salted cheesecake-like cream. And though the drink originated in Taiwanese street stalls around 2010, it wasn't until it made its way to China when bloggers, such as Ethan Wong, noticed people were willing to wait up to three hours for cups of the sweet, savory beverage.

There are several different theories. Coffee comes in many forms. There is steamed, iced, cold brew, and drip—and don’t even get us started on mochas, cappuccinos, and lattes. Some of us brew it at home (and these are the only tricks you need for a perfect pot), while others stop by the nearest coffee chain for a quick yet delicious cuppa.
