13 Must Try Drinks From Dunkin’ Donuts

Dunkin’ Donuts has more than just great donuts – they have delicious drinks, too! No matter what time of year it is, there are always great drink options at this chain.

There are refreshing cold brew options, hot drinks, and even their own signature dunkin’ drinks to choose from! Either way, you will walk about with a truly amazing coffee. 

Picking the right drink can be difficult, especially if you aren’t familiar with the menu or flavor profiles. If you’re someone who never really knows what to go with, you’re definitely in the right place.

13 Must-Try Drinks From Dunkin' Donuts

Thankfully for you, you won’t have to struggle with picking a drink next time you find yourself at Dunkin’ Donuts. We’re going to go through some of the best drink options they have on their menu. 

Please note that some of these drink options may be seasonal, or there may be variation depending on where you are.

However, each one of these drinks is worth a try, so don’t feel disappointed if one isn’t available where you are yet!

13 Must-Try Drinks From Dunkin’ Donuts

Coffee has always been an important part of Dunkin’ Donuts’ identity, but over the last few years, things have changed. They have stepped up from the regular drink and offered something new and exciting to the world.

Now, Dunkin’s coffee is some of the best in the country, and loved by millions. 

So, we’ve done all the hard work for you and put together a list of all the Dunkin’ drinks you absolutely need to try out. It doesn’t matter if it’s just a stop by on your way to work – get your hands on these coffees!

1. Dunkin’ Americano

Hot or iced, the classic Americano is a musty-try at any Dunkin’ spot. You might be surprised to learn that the Americano was first created during World War Two!

However, it has clearly stood the test of time and is one of the most popular coffee options in the world!

These drinks come in small, medium, and large sizes, and are made with two shots of Dunkin’s 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified espresso!

There really is nothing not to like about this simple but fulfilling drink if you love the rich taste of coffee in the morning. 

2. Espresso

A classic espresso is just that – a classic espresso! You can’t go wrong with one of these (as long as you know what you’re getting).

However, what really makes Dunkin’s espresso special is the fact that they use dark-roasted Arabica beans. 

These bold beans offer a strong but delightful flavor, and are always a good way to start the morning. Every shot of espresso you drink is freshly brewed, so it’s perfect every time.

You can enjoy a balanced bittersweet chocolate and sweet caramel for a flavor you will love. 

3. Dunkin’ Bottled Iced Coffee

It’s a hot summer’s day, you’re in a rush, but you still want something delicious and quick. Bring in the Dunkin’ Bottled Iced Coffee!

This is a fantastic option if you don’t have any time to sit and wait for a coffee to be prepared – because they can take a while!

These iced coffees are already ready to go, and they’re so refreshing. Sure, they might not be on the same level as a freshly brewed espresso, but they offer something different and delightful nonetheless.

You can expect options that include cookies & cream, mocha, vanilla, or the original espresso – there’s something for everyone!

4. Dunkin’ Butter Pecan Swirl

This delicious Dunkin’ Butter Pecan Swirl is part of the chain’s summer menu, and one you really shouldn’t miss out on.

It combines the creaminess and pecan in a match made in heaven. As much as we would all love for this to be available year-round, it’s probably for the best. 

This drink isn’t exactly low in sugar, and is pretty calorie heavy. As such, if you’re looking for something a little lighter, the classic cold brew above is a good option.

Even when it’s available in the hot summer months, this definitely should be your go-to drink. It’s more of a special treat, because no one needs this amount of sugar in their system daily – we promise. 

With that being said, this drink is delicious. 

5. Dunkin’ Caramel Swirl Macchiato

It seems like every single coffee spot has a caramel something, right? Well, it’s probably true, but that doesn’t mean that you should skip Dunkin’s!

We’ve already said it – Dunkin’ is just special, and their caramel swirl macchiato is always delightful. 

If you want a coffee that’s at least half dessert in terms of flavor, this is one you need to try. It’s the perfect treat for a warm day when you just need an extra something to get you through it.

It’s a great option if you want a rich espresso flavor alongside a sweet and smooth caramel.

6. Dunkin’ Hazelnut Swirl

Did the Dunkin’ Butter Pecan Swirl almost sound too good to be true? Then this Dunkin/ Hazelnut Swirl will feel like a fantasy!

This drink is the perfect alternative if you liked the sound of the above drink, but aren’t the biggest pecan lover. Who doesn’t like hazelnuts?

Like the above drink, there is a significant amount of sugar in this drink. Sure, it does have a delightful Nutella flavor to it, but you should still approach this one with a little caution.

It’s the perfect treat for a hot day, but not a great option for a go-to drink every time you visit a Dunkin’ spot. 

The coloring of this drink is everything, right?

7. Dunkin’ Classic Original Blend

We all might love the fancy drinks that Dunkin’ has to offer, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the basics.

This Dunkin’ Classic Original Blend coffee is one of those drinks that we all keep returning to time after time. There’s just something special about it. 

The best part is that you can enjoy these coffees at any time of the year. They come in hot and iced, so no matter the weather, you can always have a cup.

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best, and this coffee highlights that perfectly. 

8. Dunkin’ Rocky Road Swirl

Okay, the simple drinks have had their time – back to the exciting stuff! If you have a real sweet tooth that must be conquered, the Dunkin’ Rocky Road Swirl could be a good choice for you.

Again, this would be a terrible choice as a go-to drink if you frequent your local Dunkin’. Sure, it’s incredibly delicious, but there’s a lot of sugar in there. 

You won’t find a drink that’s sweeter than this rocky road swirl, and we take that as a good thing. There are plenty of different and exciting flavors in the cup, and it could feel like a full meal.

As such, you will probably be way too full to even think about a donut on the side. Leave that donut for the day you’re having something like the Classic Original Blend.

9. Dunkin’ Caramel Swirl Latte

The Dunkin’ Caramel Swirl Latte is a lot like the above macchiato, but way less coffee intense. Instead of a strong espresso flavor, this latte is milky and smooth, with the perfect hint of caramel to spice it up a little.

You can still enjoy the same caramel flavoring that they use in the macchiato, though! You’ll just be trading an intense coffee for one that’s a lot milder and perfect for any time of day.

If you love caramel but don’t want something too intense, then you need to stop by and pick up a Dunkin’ Caramel Swirl Latte.

10. Dunkin’ Coco Berry Iced Coffee

Want to feel special and order something off a secret menu? This Dunkin Coco Berry Iced Coffee could be exactly what you’re looking for!

Like most big chains, secret menus are a great option for anyone looking for something that a lot of people won’t even be aware of. 

This Coco Berry Iced Coffee is another drink that’s perfect on a summer day. It contains no dairy, and is probably even more delicious than you’re imagining.

Next time you stop by your local Dunkin’, why not try this drink out and let us know how it is? 

11. Dunkin’ Cold Brew

If you’re walking around on a hot day, it goes without saying that you will want something cold and refreshing. What’s better than the Dunkin’ Cold Brew to cool you down and give you the caffeine boost you need?

This classic drink is made from 100% Arabica beans and is left to steep in cold water overnight. Doing this creates a smooth and delicious blend in the form of a full-bodied cold coffee.

If you’re determined to get one of these, you better not leave it too late! Limited quantities are available, and you can choose with or without sweetener or cream.

12. Dunkin’ Nutella Surprise

Realistically, the name is probably enough to get you to at least try this drink, right? Nutella has a special place in many of our hearts, so it just makes sense that there’s a drink, too, right?

Dunkin’s Nutella Surprise is exactly what you need if you’re looking for a sweet and delicious drink – and it’s from the secret menu!

We spoke about the delightful hazelnut swirl earlier, and this one is pretty similar. However, it’s even better than that. How?

We don’t know, we aren’t scientists, but it just is. Any Nutella lover is obligated to try this drink and report back. Why not order the donut with it, too? You can never have too much Nutella… right?

13. Pumpkin Spice Latte

No half good drink menu would be complete without the world-famous and world-loved pumpkin spice latte! As soon as the air changes and the leaves are turning brown, you know it’s time for this bad boy to be created. 

Dunkin’s Pumpkin Spice Latte isn’t just a pumpkin spice latte. It can come in so many cool and competitive variations, that it even gives Starbucks a run for its money.

This is part of the reason why it’s loved so much – variety is the spice of life, but so is pumpkin spice!

It’s a shame that this drink is only available during the fall, but that’s what makes it special.

Final Thoughts 

If you’re a coffee lover, or you’re looking to try something a little different, these are all must-try drinks at Dunkin’. Some are simple classics, but the secret menu items will make you rethink everything you thought you knew. 

So, the next time you’re near your local Dunkin’ Donuts, you’d better take a moment to check out these drinks. Whether it’s summer or winter, there will be something fresh and fun to try.

Be sure to pick up one of their signature donuts while you’re there, too – it’s in the name!
