Plus, new breakfast offerings and BARK x Dunkin’ dog toys head to stores this month
BOSTON (November 1, 2023) – As the holiday season draws near, Dunkin’ is setting the stage with seasonal splendor, unveiling its newest menu. Guests can enjoy the comeback of fan-favorite holiday beverages, eye-catching cups and donut boxes, delightful donut deals and more. In collaboration with BARK, the brand adds to the merriment with the newest Dunkin’-inspired dog toys that give back. The holiday cheer starts rolling out today!
Sip to the Holidays: Seasonal Bestsellers Make a Festive Return
Dunkin’s Cookie Butter Cold Brew is back following tremendous fanfare last December. The cookie-inspired drink features Dunkin’s ultra-smooth Cold Brew, paired with notes of brown sugar and buttery cookies, topped with Cookie Butter Cold Foam and cookie butter crumbles.
Adding to the holiday lineup is the all-new Spiced Cookie Coffee, another delightful take on coffee and cookies. Available iced or hot, the Spiced Cookie Coffee features brown sugar and vanilla flavor notes paired with creamy oatmilk to capture the essence of freshly baked oatmeal cookies in a cup.
Not to be overshadowed, Dunkin’s timeless holiday lattes are returning to make the season bright. The Peppermint Mocha Signature Latte features a blend of decadent mocha and cool peppermint, topped with whipped cream, mocha drizzle and extra dusting of hot chocolate powder. The Toasted White Chocolate Signature Latte is loaded with white chocolate notes, topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and cinnamon sugar.
For those in pursuit of an indulgent holiday pairing, the Triple Chocolate Muffin is the perfect companion – generously packed with chocolate chunks and chips.
A Donut for Every Occasion!
Dunkin’s new festive donut boxes embody the true spirit of holiday giving. Every half or full dozen box is printed in a “gift wrap” design – perfect for loved ones, friends, or coworkers to enjoy.
To further embrace the season of giving, the brand is treating Dunkin’ Rewards® members to a free classic donut with the return of Free Donut Wednesdays upon the purchase of any drink, from now through December 31.*
Beginning November 29, the bakery case will glisten with an annual Holiday Sprinkle takeover for classic Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry frosted donuts, adding a touch of cheer with each bite.
“The holidays are all about the joy of giving, and who doesn’t light up at the sight of a donut? We see our customers spreading that joy, whether they’re gifting a dozen to friends, family, or coworkers,” said Jill McVicar Nelson, Chief Marketing Officer at Dunkin’. “With our gift-like packaging this year and our festive treats, we’re adding a little extra sprinkle of holiday cheer for everyone.”
Holiday Breakfast Boost
Even hash browns are getting an upgrade at Dunkin’ this holiday season with the launch of NEW Loaded Hash Browns. This latest breakfast innovation features a layer of hash browns topped with warm cheddar queso, featuring a hint of jalapeno, and finished with crispy, crumbled bacon on top. Perfect for a delicious, quick bite while tackling a busy holiday to-do list.
