Dunkin’ Is Releasing Canned Iced Coffee for America to Run On

America runs on Dunkin’. Or at least the Northeast part does. California is starting to get more Dunkin’ Donuts locations, but let’s be clear: if you aren’t in the Northeastern United States, there aren’t nearly enough. So, if you find yourself cravin’ that good, good Dunkin’ iced coffee but don’t have time to brew it yourself and don’t have a Dunkin’ Donuts within ten miles of you, you just got handed a solution to all of your problems on a donut-lined platter. Dunkin’ collaborated with the Coca-Cola Company to launch a new, ready-to-drink, Dunkin’ canned iced coffee drink in three very delicious-sounding flavors, and here’s the kicker: you can get them at your local grocery store.

Okay, my interest is piqued. What are the various Dunkin’ canned iced coffee flavors? Do they sound good? When can I get them and is the answer now?

The flavors actually sound fantastic. They have Brownie Batter Donut, Cake Batter Donut, and Coffee Cake Muffin flavors, and have clarified that the Coffee Cake Muffin flavor has some “cinnamon sweetness” to it, while the Cake Batter Donut has more of a vanilla cake vibe. Beyond that, this “Bakery Series” contains, well, coffee. According to Food & Wine, “All three dessert-inspired drinks are an irresistible combo of Dunkin’s iced Arabica coffee, real milk, and cane sugar.” Why do these sound so amazingly sweet and delicious, and why am I now craving brownie batter donut coffee? Now, there’s obviously a chance these coffee drinks will be cloyingly sweet or have that weird, fake caramelly flavor that baked good-flavored coffee drinks sometimes have. But I swear to Guy Fieri (God of Flavortown), if this thing tastes anything like a real Dunkin’ glazed chocolate cake donut mixed with iced coffee, I think I’m going to cry. And buy way too much of it. And cry some more.

These 11-ounce bevs came out last week and are currently being sold not in Dunkin’ stores but instead in grocery stores and retailers like Dollar General, Meijer, and Walmart for $2.99. Late last year, Dunkin’ also announced that they’re going to release a Dunkin’ cold brew concentrate sometime this spring, so that’s something else to look forward to if you are more of a cold brew Dunkin’ gal than a bakery-flavored Dunkin’ canned iced coffee gal. Either way, America now has more Dunkin’ to run on, and that’s a win in my book.
