The 10 Best Dunkin Donuts Drinks

Dunkin, which used to be called Dunkin’ Donuts, became famous for its tasty donuts. People still love this quick-service restaurant business for its tasty treats, but its drinks have also brought it a lot of new customers over the years.

Since Americans have become more dependent on caffeine over the past few years, Dunkin’ drinks have become a bigger part of the chain’s U.S. offering. The Dunkin’ Coffee menu has grown so much that it now has something for everyone, from simple coffee drinks to fruity lattes.

The 10 Best Dunkin Donuts Drinks

But because the Dunkin’ Drinks menu can be changed in so many ways, it can be hard to decide what to order. To help you decide what to get the next time you need a coffee, we’ve put together a list of the best Dunkin’ drinks that you won’t be sorry to select.

#1) Dunkin Americano

Dunkin Americano

Dunkin’ American is easy, but it doesn’t let you down. You can get it hot or cold. Two shots of the chain’s 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified espresso are mixed with hot water to make this drink.

The first Americano was made during World War II, when American soldiers were looking for a taste of home in their coffee while they were fighting abroad. Italy at that time didn’t have a lot of drip coffee, so bars started mixing espresso with water to make a drink that Americans would like better. A little water makes espresso less bitter, making a drink that is smooth and not sweet at all.

#2) Dunkin Bottled Iced Coffee

Dunkin Bottled Iced Coffee

Are you in a hurry to get to work or school and can’t wait for your favorite Dunkin’ drinks to be made? Then this Dunkin’ iced coffee in a bottle can give you a caffeine boost whenever you need it. There are many types of Dunkin’ bottled iced coffee, such as original, French vanilla, mocha, caramel, espresso, and cookies and cream.

Even though this canned iced coffee is handy, it’s not as good as the fresh iced coffee that the chain sells. All of them are also pre-creamed and pre-sugared, so people who like to control how light and sweet their coffee is shouldn’t buy them.

#3) Dunkin Butter Pecan Swirl Iced Coffee

Dunkin Butter Pecan Swirl Iced Coffee

A lot of people love Butter Pecan Swirl Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee taste. The drink has a buttery, smooth caramel taste with a nutty pecan flavor and a caramel pecan crunch on top. It’s a great treat to satisfy your sugar needs.

The Dunkin’ Butter Pecan Swirl tastes good, but it might make you more likely to get diabetes because a medium amount of it has 36 grams of sugar. But Butter Pecan Swirl is the perfect drink for you if you need caffeine to stay awake but don’t like the way coffee tastes.

Its smooth, creamy butteriness and nutty flavor completely cover up the coffee flavor, making it the perfect caffeinated drink for people who can’t stand the taste of coffee.

#4) Dunkin Caramel Swirl Macchiato

The Dunkin’ Caramel Swirl Macchiato tastes more like a treat than a real coffee. It tastes great, but people who are trying to cut back on sugar shouldn’t eat it.

The caramel swirl in this drink is very sweet, unlike most salted caramel flavors, which add a bit of saltiness to the sweetness of cooked sugar. This makes it the perfect drink for people who need a sugar rush.

#5) Dunkin Classic Original Blend

Dunkin Classic Original Blend

Although many new Dunkin’ drinks have come out over the years, the simple, straightforward taste of the Dunkin’ Classic Original Blend still stands out. This medium roast, which comes from Arabica beans, tastes smooth and can be served hot or iced.

If you want to make the Dunkin’ Classic Original Blend more interesting, you could add one of the chain’s plain flavor shots to it. With this add-on, you can try something new without changing the taste of the basic Dunkin’ coffee you love.

#6) Dunkin Coco Berry Iced Coffee

Dunkin Coco Berry Iced Coffee

The secret menu at Dunkin’ is where you can find some of the best drinks in the whole business. The Coco Berry Iced Coffee is one of them. Just ask for an iced coffee with almond milk and two shots of coconut and two shots of blueberry to get this one-of-a-kind drink. The taste that comes out is creamy and fruity, making it a great summer drink that doesn’t contain dairy.

There is a sister drink to the Coco Berry Iced Coffee that has chocolate instead of coconut. For this drink, you mix a mocha latte (espresso, milk, and mocha swirl) with one shot of blueberry. It tastes like coffee with blueberries covered in chocolate.

#7) Dunkin Coconut Caramel Iced Coffee

Dunkin Coconut Caramel Iced Coffee

People have said that this drink is one of the best Dunkin’ drinks ever, even though coconut and caramel don’t seem to go together. The Coconut Caramel Iced Coffee combines the sweet and salty caramel taste with the creamy coconut flavor to make a coffee that isn’t well known but tastes great.

The drink was made to honor the Girl Scouts of the United States of America’s popular cookies. It is sponsored by the Girl Scouts. For extra support of the Girl Scouts, you can also buy the drink already in a bottle at grocery shops.

#8) Dunkin Cold Brew

Dunkin Cold Brew

We chose Dunkin’ Cold brew as one of the best Dunkin’ drinks because it has a lot of caffeine and not many calories. It’s also not too acidic, so people who don’t normally like cold brew can enjoy it.

Dunkin’ Cold Brew is made with 100% Arabica beans that are soaked in cold water overnight for 12 hours. This slowly extracts the flavor, making it a very smooth, full-bodied cold coffee that tastes sweeter and more creamy.

#9) Dunkin Espresso

Dunkin Espresso

Dunkin’ Espresso is known for having a strong but tasty taste because it is made with dark-roasted Arabica beans. There are fans who say that a simple shot of Dunkin’ is about as good as an espresso in an airport in Italy. But Dunkin’ Espresso is bitter by itself, so if you really want a straight shot, you might want to think again.

Dunkin’ changed how they made espresso-based drinks in 2018 so they could make a high-quality espresso that could be made quickly and sold at a low price without losing flavor, according to QSR Magazine.

According to QSR Magazine, the chain got rid of its push-button espresso machine and put in a newer, more standard one instead. The new, better Dunkin’ Espresso has nice chocolatey notes and a smooth texture that make it great for all of the chain’s other espresso-based drinks.

#10) Dunkin Nutella Surprise

Dunkin Nutella Surprise

Nutella is mixed with one of the best Dunkin’ drinks. This secret menu item, Dunkin’ Nutella Surprise, makes an iced coffee taste like it has chocolate and hazelnuts in it. Interestingly, the chocolate and hazelnut don’t overpower the coffee flavor; instead, they make it taste even better. This makes for a very rich drink.

To get a Dunkin’ Nutella Surprise, you need to order a fresh glass of original blend Dunkin’ iced coffee. For your taste swirl, pick mocha and ask for two hazelnut shots.
