I live in the US now, and when I went to Dunkin' Donuts I asked for a double double, the girl behind the counter looked at me like I was from outer space. Comment by: vthec   
Double-double is a standard coffee term - in the US, I've heard it used in the Philadelphia/NJ and Balto-Wash DC areas. Here in the midwest (indianapolis) people would look at me like I was from Mars. Comment by: Heidi S

This has always been a common term for a coffee with 2 sugars and cream. It's just used more often in Canada as we are big coffee drinkers. Comment by: ron

Never heard this in my life, didnt even know what 'timmies' was until i saw the 'timbits' or whatever on this list! Very interesting. Of course every coffee shop has a lingo for its regulars, but here usually we just tell them what we want! Comment by: YO!Americano

I've lived in Canada up until 5, we moved to grosse ile in Michigan (I'm 16 now) and I've never heard of one saying light and sweet. We just say double double or two sugars or two creamers. Like "how many sugars" or "how many creamers" Comment by: Jordie    Rated:3/5
