Dunkin’ Donuts Research and Development Technologist Molly DeHahn released a statement describing the new Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee that is a permanent addition to the menu.
“This has been a long time in the making. It took us years in the Dunkin’ Test Kitchen to craft a frozen beverage that truly delivers the authentic taste of Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend coffee. It wasn’t as easy as simply freezing our iced coffee – we had to get the creamy, full flavor just right. Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee is made with a special extract featuring 100 percent Arabica coffee to bring forward the signature flavor of the brand’s premium coffee, blended with ice and dairy for a rich, sweet and creamy beverage to keep guests energized any time of day.”
The statement continues to say that today’s promotion is in celebration of the new coffee drink. Participating Dunkin’ Donuts will offer the free Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee samples between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. ET. Check and see if your local Dunkin’ Donuts is participating in the free offer as it is on a while supplies last basis.
