The Dunkin’ Donuts foam cup is so familiar to hot coffee drinkers — sold millions of times every day — that it even appears in the company’s logo. No one is changing Dunkin’ coffee but you may find yourself drinking out of a new cup.
The Canton company is replacing its signature cup with a double-walled paper version at five Brookline locations Monday. The swap is taking place in anticipation of the town’s Dec. 1 ban on the use of disposable polystyrene, better known as Styrofoam, in packaging for food and beverages at food service establishments.
“It’s a little cheeky, but we can’t use foam, so we made a paper cup that looks like foam,” said Scott Murphy, Dunkin’s chief supply officer.
