Attention all pumpkin spice latte lovers! Dunkin' Donuts has officially brought back their iconic Fall drinks and pastries!
As a lover of all things Fall, I personally do not care that Dunkin' is starting this early because Fall drinks are the best drinks - and that's not up for debate.
Last year, Dunkin' released their Fall menu items a day before Starbucks, but this year is different. On August 20th, the Dunkin' Instagram account posted that the wait was almost over and, of course, fall fans everywhere congregated to the comments to express their joy regarding the news. Dunkin' decided to release their Fall favorites on August 21st this year - almost a week before Starbucks!
For those who favor Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes more than Dunkin', sadly, you're going to have to wait a little while longer. Starbucks announced on Twitter that they won't be releasing their Fall menu items until August 27th. But many Twitter users didn't seem to mind since they didn't feel like the current August weather was appropriate for Fall drinks.
According to a Dunkin' Donuts press release, the chain is introducing their OWN version of the PSL (pumpkin spice latte, if you haven't caught on...) and calling it their Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte. This new latte features pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a cinnamon sugar topping. And the best part, it's available hot or iced.
Dunkin' is also introducing their Apple Cider Donut and Munchkins! The Apple Cider Donut consists of a cake donut that is covered in cinnamon sugar - yum!
Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte (with whole milk)
You can also stick to their classic Fall specialty and add in some pumpkin swirl flavoring to your regular hot or iced coffee, espresso, cold brew, or their frozen coffee/hot chocolate drinks
The party doesn't just stop at their pumpkin-flavored drinks - the pumpkin donuts and muffins are also back!
Bright and early this morning, we had the chance to try out some of the new menu items, including the Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte and Apple Cider Donuts.
If you're a fan of cake donuts, then the Apple Cider donuts are perfect for you. Even though the donut has a sugary topping, it wasn't ridiculously sweet. Now the Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin iced latte was extremely sweet. We tried one with 2% milk and whipped cream and the other with just almond milk, no whip. The iced latte with whipped cream was definitely the sweetest option in comparison to the almond milk latte, but both were full of flavor and definitely a nice pick-me-up drink!
Head out to your local Dunkin' Donuts today to try these (early) Fall menu items for yourself.
