To kick off the summer season, Dunkin’, Canton, Mass., announced the addition of coconut milk as an alternative to dairy at Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide beginning April 28. With this launch, Dunkin’ will offer new Dunkin’ Coconut Refreshers and the new Coconutmilk Iced Latte. Consumers also can customize hot and iced beverages with coconut milk, joining oat milk and almond milk as non-dairy options.
Building on the success of the Dunkin' Refreshers lineup, Dunkin' Coconut Refreshers come in three varieties:
- Pink Strawberry: Strawberry Dragonfruit flavors combined with coconut milk.
- Golden Peach: Peach Passion Fruit flavors combined with coconut milk.
- Purple Pomegranate: Blueberry Pomegranate flavors combined with coconut milk.
Additionally, Dunkin' is serving medium-sized Dunkin' Coconut Refreshers for the special price of $3 from April 28 through May 25.
The foodservice chain also released Dunkin's new Coconutmilk Iced Latte, which features blend of roasted espresso notes and subtly sweet, nutty coconut, it says. The creamy, smooth texture and hints of coconut make for a cool non-dairy iced latte, it adds.
“The start of the summer season is the perfect time to expand our menu with coconut milk, another exciting non-dairy choice for our guests,” said Jill Nelson, vice president of marketing and culinary at Dunkin’, in a statement. “From our colorful Dunkin' Coconut Refreshers to our creamy Coconutmilk Iced Latte, Dunkin’ is crafting the coolest coconut milk beverages to keep our guests refreshed and running, throughout summer and all year-long.”
Dunkin's introduction of coconut milk continues the brand's commitment to bringing consumers more non-dairy options for customizing their favorite coffee, espresso, specialty and tea-based beverages, it notes. In 2020, Dunkin' made oat milk available nationwide, and has offered almond milk since 2014.
