America's Favorite Coffee Chain Just Added Oat Milk to Its Menu
It's official, Dunkin' will now be serving oat milk in all of its locations nationwide.
In January, Dunkin' teased all coffee lovers by testing a vegan oat milk latte—but only at its California stores. However, the brand did mention it would make oat milk available as a substitute for cow's milk sometime in 2020, and that time has finally come!
To celebrate the milk alternative's arrival, Dunkin' introduced an all-new drink: the Iced Oatmilk Latte. We know what you're thinking: summer's almost over, isn't it a bit late for an iced drink to hit menus everywhere? We would argue that an iced drink can be refreshing year-round, whether you're in the midst of a heat advisory or dipping into cooler, fall weather. So to answer your question, no, it's never too late!
Not to mention, Dunkin' is one of the first national quick-service chains to offer the creamy milk alternative at every location. Starbucks was the first major brand to announce that it was testing oat milk out in select stores back in March 2019. Then, in January 2020, the brand began testing the Oatmilk Honey Latte made with Oatly at various locations across the Midwest. Starbucks has since added the beverage to menus across the nation, however, has yet to offer it as an alternative to milk in the rest of its beverages.
The oat milk brand that Dunkin' has chosen to offer to patrons in stores is Planet Oat, aka the makers of Dax Shepard's favorite frozen dessert. The announcement comes about a week after the brand announced it will be bringing back its fall menu to select Dunkin' locations as early as Wednesday, August 19.
This fall, get ready to enjoy apple cider donuts as well as new items including the Maple-Sugar Seasoned Bacon and of course, the Iced Oatmilk Latte.
