This Giant Rat At Dunkin’ Donuts Will Make You Question Those Chocolate Sprinkles (Video)

Well, I am officially going to vomit because I had breakfast at this rat-infested establishment just last Sunday.

The Dunkin’ Donuts on 37th and 8th became a YouTube sensation after users captured two videos showing rats wandering through the croissant and bagel shelves.

User Pjayone uploaded this vile video on April 1, confirming the location to be the Garment District franchise.

In an email to the Gothamist, he said,

“At two-thirty in the morning every day the workers load the shelves with the mornings wares. Shortly thereafter like clockwork the rats come out and party.”

Pauses to vomit…

Somehow, NYC’s health department granted this sad excuse for a breakfast spot an “A.” This is especially counterintuitive considering that in November of 2013, they issued the evaluation:

“Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.”

Um, what? That sounds like a guaranteed C-rating to me.

But wait, it gets better (or worse): these rats know no boundaries and were even caught climbing up the store’s curtains. Jesus f*cking Christ, this is some sh*t straight out of “Ratatouille.”

A man who claims to be the manager of the location, but obviously wouldn’t state his name, says he is unaware of anything of this nature ever happening.

Dunkin’ Donuts even went as far to make a statement that,

“We take this matter very seriously. Immediately upon learning of the situation at the Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant at 265 West 37th Street, a certified Operations Manager inspected the restaurant to ensure that all appropriate Dunkin’ Donuts food safety standards are being followed.”

All the standard protocol might have been followed, but apparently these rats have found a way around those pesky health code regulations.

Regardless, this shop will definitely see a decrease in foot traffic. I mean, just look at what happened to the Guy & Gallard where a lizard head was found in a salad — the place is a ghost town!

If this isn’t incentive to prepare your own breakfast, then I don’t know what is.
