New Dunkin’-inspired PopThirst sleeves with PopTops are available now and will benefit the Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation to help kids battling hunger or illness.
CANTON, MA and BOULDER, CO (August 17, 2020) – Toting your favorite Dunkin’ beverage this summer just got more fun thanks to Dunkin’ and PopSockets, maker of expandable phone grips and lifestyle accessories. Today, Dunkin’ and PopSockets announced that new Dunkin’-inspired PopThirst cup sleeves, complete with donut- and coffee-themed PopTops are available now. The new sleeves, designed to perfectly hold your Dunkin’ coffee, offer fun styles and temperature control so you can sip in style all summer long. This limited-edition Dunkin’ drop is part of PopSockets’ ‘Poptivism’ charitable program, with 50% of sales going to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation to support health and hunger relief for kids in underserved communities.
Dunkin’ is the first brand to collaborate with PopSockets to bring branded PopThirst sleeves to fans. Dunkin’ fans can choose from two unique PopThirst bundles, one featuring a strawberry frosted donut PopTop, and the other featuring an iced coffee-themed PopTop. The PopThirst sleeves are designed with a non-slip material that reduces hand slippage when sipping your Dunkin’ coffee, and when you’re not using the sleeve, it can fit compactly into a pocket or purse for easy on-the-go use. The PopThirst bundles retail for $20 and are available for purchase on PopSockets.com, while supplies last.

PopSockets’ mission is to create a positive impact, and this limited edition ‘Poptivism’ collaboration gives fans of both brands the opportunity to support Dunkin’s Joy in Childhood Foundation," said Jennifer Forman, Director of Poptivism and Corporate Citizenship.

Once upon a time, there was a philosophy professor named David Barnett. Like most philosophers, David lived a life driven by curiosity and innovation. It was these traits that ultimately led him into creating the first PopGrip out of a pair of buttons glued to the back of his phone. Fast forward to the present, and PopSockets is a global sensation, selling over 165 million PopGrips in more than 68 countries worldwide. They also make more than just PopGrips, such as PopTops, PopWallets, and even a super-fast phone charger. All of these are things that make your life a little easier and a lot more fun. PopSockets is also committed to making a positive impact in the world. Their charitable program, Poptivism, is all about that. Since the program's launch in 2018, PopSockets has donated over $3 million in money and product to various nonprofits. To learn more about the brand, check out popsockets.com.
