There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who drink iced coffees year-round and those who, well, don’t. And for those of us who fall in the former category, Dunkin’ Donuts is about to make your week.
Dunkin’ Donuts is hosting a nationwide tasting event taking place on Friday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Show up, and you’ll receive a complimentary sample (a 3.5-ounce cup) of Dunkin’ Donuts’ very own cold brew, which is prepared by steeping a special blend of coffee for 12 hours.
According to Dunkin’ Donuts’ press release, “this longer process extracts a uniquely distinctive, inherently sweeter flavor from the beans reminiscent of dark chocolate.”
Sounds like any other cold brew, but, hey, we aren’t complaining. #TeamColdBrew4Lyfe.
In true Dunkin’ Donuts fashion, you’ll need a doughnut to pair with your coffee. The coffee-and-breakfast chain is also debuting its Caramel Chocoholic Donut — because clearly, you need more chocolate to pair with your dark chocolate-noted cold brew.
As you can see, the doughnut is frosted with caramel icing, sprinkled with semisweet chocolate curls and topped off with a drizzle of caramel icing. You don’t have to wait to pick up this decadent dessert (or breakfast for the bold); the doughnut is available now at participating Dunkin’ Donuts.
This cold brew and Caramel Chocoholic Donut aren’t the only new additions to the menu.
Earlier this year, Dunkin’ Donuts also released three new Girl Scout Cookie-flavored drinks: Thin Mint, peanut butter cookie and coconut-caramel — which you can get hot or iced or as a latte, macchiato, frozen coffee or frozen chocolate. (Because they know we can’t say no to Girl Scout Cookies.) The drinks are only available through May of this year, so you’d better take advantage while you can.
Also still available on the menu is its Brown Sugar Chipotle Bacon Breakfast Sandwich and the Spring Fling Donut complete with purple-colored icing and flower sprinkles.
See you at Dunkin’ Donuts this Friday.
