Love It Or Hate It? Dunkin’s Sugarplum Macchiato Has The Internet Divided

Dunkin’ had the internet divided on Wednesday when it released the Sugarplum Macchiato for the month of December.

The new drink, which can be served hot or iced, combines espresso, milk, and sugarplum flavors that are made up of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and plums accented with vanilla and rounded out with a sugary finish.

 

“Our Sugarplum Macchiato is a colorful twist on a well-known, but perhaps mysterious-tasting, flavor of holiday lore,” Jill Nelson, vice president, marketing strategy at Dunkin’ said in a statement. “It’s the perfect complement to our fan-favorite holiday latte lineup and brings even more delicious cheer to the Dunkin’ menu.”

The Sugarplum Macchiato was made for social media with its color-changing appearance. As of Wednesday afternoon, a TikTok video showing the drink’s purple-layering had amassed 45,500 likes, while a post on Instagram had over 111,500 views.

The Undoing Finale Has Divided the Internet

Warning:  Major spoilers ahead. Don’t watch unless you’ve seen the series finale of The Undoing. 

It seemed like the entire internet watched the series finale of HBO’s The Undoing on Sunday, November 29. For those unfamiliar with the show, it centers on a New York City therapist named Grace (Nicole Kidman), whose husband, Jonathan (Hugh Grant), is accused of murdering a woman named Elena Alves (Matilda De Angelis). As the show unfolded, we learned Jonathan had an affair with Elena and was the father of her newborn baby. But he contested up and down that he was not her killer, despite his tangled relationship with her.

So, naturally, the internet jumped into theorizing mode to figure out who Elena’s killer really was. Did Grace actually know about the affair and murder Elena out of rage? Was it their young son, Henry (Noah Jupe), who hid the murder weapon in his

‘Biggest sin in the programme’: How a coat from The Undoing divided the internet | Fashion

The real star of The Undoing, HBO’s absurd marital melodrama, is not Hugh Grant, the Manhattan skyline or even the pair of David Hockneys hanging inside a vast penthouse in episode one. It’s a coat.

Sludge-green, calf-length, with wide lapels and a hood, this coat is worn again and again by Nicole Kidman’s character, a gnomic therapist called Grace, as she floats down Madison Avenue, through Central Park and even into the prison on Rikers Island, brooding over her marriage to a man who may, or may not, have just murdered his lover with a lump hammer.

Other coats appear. One is red faux fur, constructed by sewing several coats together. Another is more of a cape, inspired by the Italian label Etro, but handmade and embroidered with Japanese flowers. But it’s the green coat, which is probably velvet (although it could easily be astrakhan fur, the tightly curled

How The Crypto Community Got Divided Into Two Halves: CeFi Vs. DeFi

There are two halves of the financial system from a crypto enthusiast’s perspective — traditional finance and cryptocurrency finance. But the crypto space now has two subspaces — centralized finance (CeFi) and decentralized finance (DeFi). Here’s how the divide happened.

One of the original ideas behind cryptocurrency is to have a wholly peer-to-peer network that doesn’t need centralized intermediaries such as financial institutions. Events played out differently in reality, however.

First, there are two ways to own crypto. You either receive payments in crypto or exchange government-issued money, such as the dollar for it. Most people enter the market via fiat gateways, and that complicates things —
