Darn it, Dunkin’ Donuts! So much for cutting back on caffeine or sugar anytime soon. The nationwide coffee-and-doughnut chain has paired up with the Girl Scouts to jazz up our morning fix with — *gulp* — three new but familiar flavors: Thin Mint, peanut butter cookie and coconut-caramel.
Yep, you read that right. It’s like drinking hot Girl Scout Cookies. Unless you like your coffee iced — that’s fine too. The Girl Scout Cookie-inspired coffee flavors can be used in any of Dunkin’ Donuts’ drink selections, including macchiatos, lattes, frozen coffee or frozen (or not) hot chocolate. Oof. I mean, it’s bad enough that we still have 17 boxes of Thin Mint calorie bombs stashed in the cabinet from our scout daughters and nieces. Now the temptation is at our local Dunkin’ Donuts in the morning too. Drat!
Yeah, no, we’re not actually complaining. We’re just pretending to complain. We had exactly zero intention of ditching caffeine or sugar in the bleakness of February or March. Are you nuts? What kind of masochists do you think we are?
So mark your calendar with us: Today, Monday, Feb. 26, we all hail Dunkin’ Donuts’ Girl Scout Cookie coffee!
Sadly, the cookie-flavored coffee will only be available at Dunkin’ Donuts through May 2018. Excuse us while we choke back sobs — and peanut butter cookie macchiatos and Thin Mint lattes. As we weep for our childhood metabolisms.
