If I said the word “summer” and asked you to tell me the first thing that came to your mind, I’d be willing to bet you would say “beach” or “ice cream.” If I’m right, and ice cream is the first thing that pops into your head, boy, do I have good news for you.
This summer, Dunkin’ Donuts is rolling out three ice cream-flavored iced coffees. You may remember that last year, Dunkin’ Donuts asked fans to vote for their Baskin-Robbins ice cream-inspired iced coffees and in return, Dunkin’ would add them to its menu the following summer. Well, fans voted, and Dunkin’ Donuts is sticking to their promise. Beating out Jamoca-almond fudge and rocky road, the three flavors that will be added to the menu this summer are pistachio, butter pecan and cookie dough.
Here’s how Dunkin’ Donuts described the flavors in a press release:
- Butter pecan: “The indulgent butter roasted pecan and sweet cream flavors have met their match in Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee.”
- Cookie dough: “This flavor will transport taste buds to the moments just before cookies are popped into the oven with the sweet taste of cookie dough.”
- Pistachio: “Pistachio ice cream lovers will go nuts for the sweet pistachio taste of this iced coffee flavor.”
I personally would have rather seen rocky road replace butter pecan, but I’m pretty excited for the cookie dough flavor.
Their press release also contained some good news for all the fans who voted for this year’s flavor winners. According to their press release, the coffee chain “has selected a dozen fans whose post or comment the brand particularly enjoyed each of whom will receive a summer of free coffee.” Additionally, “one day this summer a Dunkin’ Donuts in their town will offer free medium ice cream flavored iced coffees to the first 500 guests.”
Well, now I’m really wishing I had voted last year. I guess there’s still hope that someone in my city voted.
All three sweet flavors are available now and can be added to any hot and iced coffees, lattes, macchiatos frozen coffees and frozen chocolates.
