Gotta Affogato! The Story Behind our Newest Menu Item

Gotta Affogato! The Story Behind our Newest Menu Item

Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins are coming together to take deliciousness to the next level with an ice cream and espresso treat that comes straight from Italy: the Affogato.

What is an Affogato? It’s a classic Italian dessert that features a scoop of vanilla ice cream covered in a warm shot of espresso. The poured espresso is actually where this dessert gets its name since “affogato” by definition means “drown” in Italian.

It’s the simple yet delicious combination of velvety ice cream and rich espresso that makes Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins your local affogato ambassadors! This indulgent new menu item is a hybrid of two brand favorites: Baskin-Robbins’ French Vanilla Ice Cream and Dunkin’s bold, smooth espresso, resulting in a rich palate-pleaser and perfect afternoon pick-me-up.
