A Dunkin’ Donuts in a store in a St. Louis suburb recently used cups with a Chicago Blackhawks logo.

According to KMOV in St. Louis, a local Dunkin’ Donuts chain in Kirkwood, Missouri received the Blackhawks cups “due to an untimely shipping error from the regional distribution center.”

The cups said, “Dunkin' Donuts: The official coffee of the Chicago Blackhawks.”

St. Louis is playing the Blackhawks in the first-round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Blues beat Chicago 1-0 in overtime on Wednesday night in Game 1. Both teams are part of one of the NHL’s bigger rivalries. Both will face off next season in the NHL’s Winter Classic.  

The sale of the cups started this week, which made the timing even more unfortunate. 

The television station went to the game and showed the cups to Blues fans heading into Scottrade Center. Said one fan to the station, “That’s disgusting. They can’t do that here.”

Added another fan, “They ought to give everybody who goes through there a free donut for a year.”
