Everything We Know About Dunkin's 2021 Holiday Drink Menu

If there is one thing coffee chain fans and rewards members approach with the utmost seriousness, then surely it's the release of seasonal drinks. But pumpkin spice season is over and the launch of the holiday drink menu has already happened. According to a press release shared by Dunkin', the chain rolled out its seasonal holiday drinks on November 3rd — one day ahead of Starbucks.

But Dunkin' fans will find more than their essential, timeless flavor. The chain has added a number of drinks and even new snacks. Best of all, Dunkin' will be supporting kids battling hardships like hunger or illness. Customers who donate to the Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation will get $1 off a dozen donuts. That's a lot to get excited about and even more to wrap up in a festively designed cup.

So, get your taste buds ready for the season, and don't wait to visit your local Dunkin' now that the holiday menu is out. With several great new flavors to try, you will likely want to make a few trips to your favorite coffee chain to try them all.

Returning drinks and treats to Dunkin's holiday menu

The holiday staple known as the peppermint mocha is returning to Dunkin' as the signature latte this season. Just as it appeared last year, the drink is topped with whipped cream, a mocha drizzle, and a dusting of cocoa powder. Apart from the peppermint mocha signature latte, all of the additional holiday flavors are brand new to the menu.

Unfortunately, those who loved the signature gingerbread latte will not find it on the menu again this year. Clearly, the sugar plum macchiato was a flop from last year, too, as it's nowhere to be found this year. It certainly did not get the best reviews apart from the pretty purple color (via DBK News). Regardless, the berry- and vanilla-flavored coffee drink did not return to the holiday drink menu this year.

However, the chai oat milk latte that was launched last year has been incorporated into the standard menu. So, that's at least one drink from last year that you can still count on.

New holiday drinks debuting on the menu

Luckily, there are plenty of new holiday flavors to look forward to when ordering at Dunkin'. That includes the new Holiday Blend Coffee, part of a limited batch series that combines both Colombian and Ethiopian coffees with hints of molasses and dried fruit. 

The first new flavor addition to the Dunkin' holiday menu this year is the toasted white chocolate signature latte. Made with the flavor of rich, creamy white chocolate, this delicious latte is topped with whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. The second flavor is white mocha hot chocolate. This version of the classic drink is a thick and creamy milk chocolate drink mixed with white chocolate for an even sweeter indulgence.

So, start thinking about which drink you want to try first. You'll already find them on your local Dunkin's menu.
