Dunkin' Launches Cookie Butter Cold Brew & Other Holiday Treats that Rival the Peppermint Mocha
As Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" defrosts, just in time to take over big box store playlists everywhere, another hallmark of the holidays emerges: seasonal coffee. The 2022 Dunkin' holiday drinks menu has officially hit stores, and this year's lineup includes a cookie-inspired newcomer, as well as a few returning favorites (like the peppermint mocha!).
Oh, and from November 7 through the 28th, Dunkin' Rewards members can enjoy Free Coffee Mondays, scoring a free hot or iced coffee with any purchase. They'll also reap benefits like getting a free Wake-Up Wrap or bakery item with the purchase of a full-priced medium (or larger) drink, providing further incentive to try out these new treats.
Here's everything you need to know about Dunkin's latest lattes and cold brews, as well as the new donuts and snacks you've got to try before the end of the year.
Dunkin's 2022 Holiday Drinks
New: Cookie Butter Cold Brew
Your cookie swap's got nothing on this drink, which features two longtime food trends in one: cold foam-topped cold brew and Speculoos, or cookie butter. In this case, slow-steeped cold brew is infused with hints of brown sugar and cookies, and the whole thing is topped with cookie butter cold foam (which tastes like "warm holiday spices," according to the brand) and crumbled cookie bits.
Returning: Holiday Blend Coffee, Toasted White Chocolate Latte & Peppermint Mocha Latte
If you love the classic chocolate-meets-candy-cane taste of the Peppermint Mocha, you're in luck: It's back at Dunkin' again this year. The chain is also bringing back its Holiday Blend coffee, a medium roast with notes of molasses and dried fruit. (This year, however, they're selling bags of it too.)
Rounding out the holiday drinks menu is the Toasted White Chocolate Signature Latte, known for its ultra-sweet-yet-creamy white chocolate flavor, whipped cream topping and caramel drizzle. It's the drink for someone with a serious sweet tooth.
Dunkin's 2022 Holiday Snacks & Treats
New: Cookie Butter Donut & Pancake Wake-Up Wrap
What, you think Dunkin' would limit its cookie butter to a single drink? The brand has also released a yeast donut filled with cookie butter buttercream, topped with maple icing and dashed with crumbled cookies.
And for people who prefer something slightly less dessert-like in the morning (we hear they exist), Dunkin's selling a Pancake Wake-Up Wrap, which is essentially an entire breakfast folded into a flapjack that you can eat on the run. Seriously—inside the maple-infused pancake are eggs, cheese and your choice of sausage or bacon. Oh, and it comes with a side of maple syrup for dipping or drizzling. Your call.
Returning: Cranberry Orange Muffin
Topped with sanding sugar for added crunch, this muffin is studded with tart cranberries and features a zesty orange flavor that offset its sweetness. It's a great complement to black coffee or lightly sweetened drinks.
