someone needs to check to see if the with "w/ cream, sugar" is in regions outside of E. MA. I only know about the MA phenomenon (e.g. New Yorkers visiting Cape Cod Dunkin' Donuts shops frequently have misunderstandings). Ishwar 18:48, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Awesomely, the Boston Globe did this check. Looks ubiquitous across MA, CT, RI, VT, NH — and stops at NY. https://www.boston.com/news/business/2014/06/17/at-dunkin-donuts-coffee-regular-has-a-limit-and-that-limit-is-new-york-state Mattdm (talk) 14:12, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
- They probably just consulted the multi-volume Dictionary of American Regional English. Unfortunately I have not yet acquired the volume with entries beginning with "R" and the volume that contains coffee does not mention regular coffee. DCDuring TALK 14:34, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
The Dictionary of American Regional English needed.
