From Football to Foliage, Dunkin’ Helps You Tackle Your Favorite Fall Traditions

From Football to Foliage, Dunkin’ Helps You Tackle Your Favorite Fall Traditions

Fall is the perfect time of year for fun outdoor activities. And no matter what your fall passion is, Dunkin’ will keep you running. Check out our recommended food and beverage pairings for some of the season’s most-loved pastimes:

Football Frenzy with the Blood Orange Dunkin’ Refresher

For many fall fanatics, football is one of the best things about the season. Whether high school, college or pro, the gridiron is a great way to catch up with friends and show your team spirit.

And, since the season technically starts before the end of summer, things can get pretty heated – especially when the tailgating festivities begin. Lawn chairs? Check. Tarps and tents, absolutely! Dunkin’ has a great way to fuel your fandom while keeping you cool as you cheer, whether in the bleachers, in the parking lot, or your very own huddle around the TV at home.

Our new Blood Orange Dunkin’ Refresher is a seasonal citrus-forward burst of tart cranberry with bright blood orange flavor, balanced with subtle notes of fall spices. Served chilled over ice with either green tea or coconut milk, the Blood Orange Dunkin’ Refresher has B vitamins so you’ll stay energized and refreshed all season long.

Need even more energy to tackle fall? Try it with our Everything Stuffed Bagel Minis for the ultimate salty and sweet combination – a perfect snack to take to the game.

Heavenly Hayrides with Pumpkin Donuts

Fall just isn’t complete without a hayride, whether you bring the whole family or make it a cozier outing just for two. There’s something about climbing on board a hay wagon and riding through a cornucopia of fall-ness, past the fresh produce, farm animals – perhaps a friendly scarecrow or even a few ghosts. And, of course, pumpkins!

En route to the patch, why not indulge in all things pumpkin with our Fall Pumpkin Bakery lineup? Dunkin’ has the pick of the patch this fall with three returning favorites rich with pumpkin deliciousness. Our glazed Pumpkin Cake Donut and Pumpkin MUNCHKINS® Donut Hole Treats are staples of our Fall Menu. And our Pumpkin Muffin, topped with a sweet streusel and white icing, is packed with pumpkin flavor.

And if the hayride happens to be haunted, you can fuel your fright with one of our Halloween-inspired treats! Get in the spooky spirit with the returning Peanut Butter Cup Macchiato, which features a striking layer of festive orange-hued peanut butter cup swirl that blends into a layer of espresso. Pair it with a Dunk-o-Lantern or Spider Donut so you can haunt harder! But hurry – just like fall and hayrides, they’re only here for a limited time.

The Power of the Pumpkin Patch with a Nutty Pumpkin

What better way to spend an autumn afternoon than at the pumpkin patch? Nothing says fall like loading up the fam and hitting the road for a veritable playground of pumpkin-ness. And Dunkin’ has just the right beverage to help fuel the fall fun. While you’re picking out a pumpkin (or three) and envisioning the perfect jack-o’-lantern, take along our latest coffee creation, Nutty Pumpkin coffee.

Inspired by our pumpkin-loving guests who love to get creative with flavor combos, our Nutty Pumpkin coffee features a nutty twist on the fan-favorite pumpkin flavor. It combines Dunkin’s Original Blend Coffee, available iced or hot, with a delicious pumpkin spice swirl, hazelnut flavor shot, and splash of cream for a delicious new take on classic pumpkin flavors. It’s like pumpkin pie in a cup!

The Nutty Pumpkin is a perfect pairing for the patch, with notes of robust hazelnut that blend perfectly with the subtle nuttiness of Original Blend coffee, complementing the warm fall spices in the pumpkin swirl. Need even more energy for the corn maze? Pair a Nutty Pumpkin with our returning Maple Sugar Bacon Sandwich or Maple Sugar Snackin’ Bacon.

Crazy for Carving with Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

Now that you’ve picked your favorite pumpkin from the patch, there’s no better way to build anticipation and excitement for Halloween than by carving it. Whether your chosen design is traditional or more avant-garde, Dunkin's has a prized pumpkin sip to keep you cool while the creative juices flow.

Our Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is now even better with a reimagined recipe that lets the pumpkin flavor of the pumpkin cream cold foam shine. The slow-steeped, ultra-smooth cold brew blends notes of brown sugar with warm fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Topped with velvety-smooth, pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of cinnamon sugar, it’s the ultimate pumpkin spice beverage to add to your carving fun.

Fetching Fall Colors with a Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte

Whether it’s close by or requires a long, meandering road trip with plenty of farm stand stops, checking out the fall foliage is a favorite spectator sport for many fall fanatics. For an immersive fall experience, we suggest taking our iconic Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte along for the ride.

A true classic, it was originally created to help kick off the fall season with pumpkin flavored drinks in premium crafted formats. With sweet pumpkin, vanilla, and warming spices merging with espresso and milk, the Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte takes fall flavors to a place of sheer indulgence. It’s topped with creamy sweet, whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a dusting of cinnamon sugar to complement the pumpkin spice and espresso notes. Enjoy the taste of fall in every sip while your eyes feast on nature’s bounty.
