This Major Coffee Chain Is Launching 5 New Fall Drinks Next Week
Pumpkin spice season is oh-so close! If you're eagerly awaiting word on the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, it's finally time to mark your calendar. One popular coffee chain just announced the return of this beloved fall beverage—and it appears to be the very first to do so.
Dunkin's take on the Pumpkin Spice Latte is officially scheduled to hit menus on Aug. 18 alongside a pumpkin-packed menu that's guaranteed to satisfy all of your cold-weather cravings. Of Dunkin's move to launch its fall menu ahead of other chains, Anh-Dao Kefor, director of integrated marketing, exclusively tells Eat This, Not That!:
"Dunkin' is the go-to pumpkin destination this season, and we're thrilled to bring pumpkin fanatics a robust fall menu lineup, earlier than ever before."
Without further ado, check out what's coming to Dunkin's fall menu below! Then sign up for the Eat This, Not That! newsletter to stay up-to-date on all of the latest food and beverage news.
Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte
Meet Dunkin's signature take on the coveted PSL. The "creamy iced latte" with hints of vanilla is topped with whipped cream, a caramel drizzle, and cinnamon sugar. "The vanilla brings out the sweetness and rounds out the spice notes in the pumpkin, giving more of a custard-type flavor that only enhances the pumpkin enjoyment," Dunkin' says.
Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
Dunkin's "premium pumpkin pick" is the brand-new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. It's topped with the chain's pumpkin cream cold foam, which has "sweet notes of pumpkin and hints of warm spices such as cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg."
"The drink is served with a special sip lid so fall fanatics can enjoy the layers of velvety pumpkin cream cold foam and delicious bold cold brew to the fullest," the chain says.
(Note: For a limited time, medium Pumpkin Cream Cold Brews and Pumpkin Spice Signature Lattes will be available for $3.)
Apple Cranberry Dunkin' Refreshers
Dunkin's new Apple Cranberry Dunkin' Refresher shines a spotlight on two of the season's most beloved fruits. Made with green tea and B vitamins, this beverage purportedly provides "a boost of energy to keep you running throughout all of your favorite fall activities."
Meanwhile, the new Apple Cranberry Dunkin' Coconut Refresher offers a "subtly sweet," non-caffeinated alternative.
100% Guatemalan Coffee
The latest hot coffee to join the lineup of Dunkin's Limited Batch Series is "smooth and rich with chocolate notes." Sourced from Guatemala, it also boasts "less acidity and sharpness than other roasts."
If you're a DD Perks member, you can earn double points on 100% Guatemalan coffee if you order ahead on the Dunkin' app from Aug. 18 to Sept. 14.
From Sept. 15 through Oct. 12, 10 cents from every cup of this coffee sold at Dunkin' stores will help support reforestation efforts in Guatemala.
Pumpkin Flavor Swirl
Truth be told, the five aforementioned beverages aren't the only ways to get your pumpkin fix. You can also add Dunkin's pumpkin flavor swirl to any hot, iced, or frozen coffee; Chai Latte; Cold Brew; espresso drink; or frozen chocolate.
