Dunkin Drinks both hot and cold for Fall!

Elaina Gilsenan, Staff Writer

With new fall weather comes new Dunkin’ fall drinks including the signature Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte, Chai Latte, and the Iced Pumpkin Coffee. I tried all three of these so you don’t have to! Here are my rankings of the best three most popular Dunkin Donuts drinks for this season from worst to best:

3. Iced Pumpkin Coffee

The iced pumpkin coffee was the cheapest drink ($2.49 for a medium) and unfortunately, the taste reflected the price. This drink tasted like a fake pumpkin with a hint of coffee, it was far too sweet for my liking and the pumpkin flavor overpowered the coffee. I would recommend this drink to anyone that doesn’t prefer coffee and loves the warm taste of pumpkin, but for anybody else, this drink is too sweet and too strong with pumpkin flavoring.

2. Iced Pumpkin Spiced Latte

This drink was much better than the iced pumpkin coffee, it was not too sweet and the spice helped balance the pumpkin flavor. I highly recommend asking for the whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top if you have a sweet tooth and aren’t counting calories! I tried both with and without and found that the whipped cream and extra drizzle made the drink much more enjoyable than the Iced Pumpkin Coffee. I recommend this drink to coffee lovers and those who like spiced flavors.

1. Chai Latte

My ultimate favorite to try (and I’ll certainly go back for) was the Chai Latte! It could be I’m not the biggest fan of pumpkin-flavored drinks (I found this out while tasting) but I loved the hint of spice in this drink. I tried this on a colder day and it was the perfect hot, cozy beverage that wasn’t too sweet to satisfy me. The foam on the top of the elixir was delicious and the drink had a very distinct Dunkin cinnamon flavor. I recommend this latte to any of my fellow spiced or cinnamon / nutmeg flavored drink fans- however it might not be exactly what some pumpkin spiced lovers fancy.

 

Hope you find the drink you rank as your #1 over at Dunkin and please be sure to give us more food/drink orders for to review for Fall. Happy tasting Dunkin Fall Drinks y’all!
