The Story Behind our Pink Velvet Signature Latte and Macchiato

The Story Behind our Pink Velvet Signature Latte and Macchiato

This February, Dunkin’ is going pink with two limited-time festive Valentine’s Day espresso beverages, making it easy to enjoy moments of fun and sweetness no matter how you choose to celebrate.

Our Pink Velvet Macchiato is a Valentine’s Day must-have for espresso lovers. The Pink Velvet Macchiato combines Dunkin’s rich espresso with red velvet cake flavor and hints of cream cheese icing, and when served iced, creates a colorful pink-layered look for the perfect photo.

More of a latte lover? Check out our delicious Pink Velvet Signature Latte, available hot or iced, featuring Dunkin’ espresso with red velvet cake flavor, topped with whipped cream, mocha drizzle and hot chocolate powder.

You may be wondering, what is a macchiato and what is a latte? How are they different? A handcrafted, layered macchiato is a rich and bold choice, which contains a layer of steamed milk topped with two shots of espresso, and finished with a thin layer of milk foam. A latte is the creamiest of our espresso selections and contains two-thirds of the beverage with steamed milk, poured over a shot of espresso and topped with a layer of milk foam.

To sweeten up your Valentine’s Day, we are excited to offer two returning fan favorites for donut lovers. The Brownie Batter Donut is a heart-shaped donut filled with rich, chocolatey brownie batter-flavored buttercreme filling and frosted with chocolate icing, and the Cupid’s Choice Donut is a heart-shaped donut filled with Bavarian Kreme and frosted with strawberry-flavored icing. Both varieties, as well as Dunkin’s classic frosted donut varieties, are topped with Bling Sprinkles for a special sparkle. For another delicious way to treat yourself and others to a little sweetness, 10-count boxes of Dunkin’s MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats are available for the special price of $2 for a limited time at participating locations nationwide.
