Dunkin’ Donuts’ New Punch Is Actually An Energy Drink (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

Dunkin’ Donuts is now selling an energy drink, so if you don’t like coffee, you can always give this Monster Coolatta a taste.

The blue drink is a mixture of Blue Raspberry or Strawberry Coolatta (whichever you choose) and a whole can of Monster, according to Delish. It’s served over ice, not blended like a Coolatta normally would be.

The drink is called the Dunkin’ Energy Punch. It’s a good idea for a refreshing new way to gather your energy in the afternoon when the days are hot and you’re not feeling coffee. Dunkin’ Donuts reports that the inspiration behind this idea came from everywhere, but that the Dunkin’ Energy Punch was created by a couple of Dunkin’ franchises specifically in New Hampshire.

The drink has reached the menu of thousands of Dunkin’ Donuts locations in New England, Miami and West Palm Beach, Florida. It’s in test mode currently, so DD asks that you take to social media to let them know if you’d like to see the drink available at locations nationwide. If you need a little help making up your mind, just check out how cool it looks …

The real question is why wouldn’t we want these at all locations?

Dunkin’ Donuts Spring Menu Looks Delightful


By Cooking Panda

The changing of the seasons doesn’t only bring warmer weather. It also brings new menus, and spring menus are always something to get excited about. Dunkin’ Donuts’ spring menu is no exception.

Delish reports that the new Dunkin’ menu will consist of a new coconut cream pie flavored coffee as well as butter pecan. I’m drooling already. Either of these springy new flavors will be available as a hot coffee drink, iced coffee drink, latte or macchiato style. Likewise, the traditionally winter-oriented beverages are getting a spring facelift and being offered as cold drinks now as well. These include the hot chocolate, Dunkaccino, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and Mint Hot Chocolate.

If a smooth coffee taste without all that added flavoring is more your thing, don’t worry. There’s something for you, too. Dunkin’ will be offering its famous coffee in a frozen form, for those of us who want in on the spring and summer action without partaking in the coconut cream, praline, mocha, mint or any other flavors that might take away from the rich taste of coffee all on its own. That drink, however, won’t be debuting until summer, so you’ll have to settle for the hot or iced stuff for now.

If you’re more into tea than you are into coffee, you’ll be thrilled to know that Dunkin’ is also offering a new line of fruity teas and a new Coolatta. The teas are either black or green and come in pineapple mango or blackberry flavors. They are brewed fresh, then mixed with a little fruit juice and some actual fruit for a nice refreshment during the (upcoming) spring and summer heat.

The Coolatta flavor is pink lemonade, the staple flavor of summer. Need I say more?

The last new drink is called the Dunkin’ Energy Punch, which consists of Monster Energy and a Coolatta mix, using either the blue raspberry or strawberry Dunking Coolatta flavors.

As for the food (we can’t forget that!), there are two new donuts hitting menus, and one new breakfast sandwich. The Peanut Butter Delight Croissant Donut is filled with peanut butter creme, and topped with a drizzle of chocolate icing. The Chocolate Pretzel Donut is made with a chocolate cake donut and topped with crushed pretzel and a caramel drizzle.

Finally, there’s a Pretzel Croissant Breakfast Sandwich that should be calling your name. The sandwich that comes with this new croissant-pretzel mix has bacon, white cheddar and egg. The perfect breakfast when combined with a Butter Pecan Iced Coffee. Yum.
