Dunkin’ regulars rely on their coffees and doughnuts to get them going in the morning, but a new kind of buzz may be coming soon from the chain. It seems they’re planning to launch Dunkin’ Spiked, a new line of hard iced coffees and hard iced teas.
The news was first reported by VinePair, which did the research and found Dunkin’ received label approval for the canned adult beverages from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau in May.
“Dunkin’ is brewing up something special (and spiked) for adult iced coffee and iced tea lovers,” a Dunkin’ rep tells TODAY.com. “While we can’t confirm any new additions to Dunkin’s lineup of ready-to-drink products at this time, stay tuned for more news soon!”
According to the Dunkin' Spiked website, there will be four varieties of the Dunkin Spiked teas: Slightly Sweet, Half and Half (half lemonade, half tea), Strawberry Dragonfruit and Mango Pineapple. There will also be four flavors of the Spiked Iced Coffee: Original Iced Coffee, Caramel Iced Coffee, Mocha Iced Coffee and Vanilla Iced Coffee. The boozy beverages are malt-based, and are made from grain including malted barley, so they’re not gluten-free. While no official release date has been announced, the website shows the Spiked Teas are shipping now and the coffees will be available in September.
