What’s the Best Dunkin Donuts Drink?

Dunkin Donuts, now known as simply Dunkin, is a staple in the United States for coffee and donuts. The New England-based coffee chain uses the catchphrase “The World Runs on Dunkin” so obviously they take pride in their coffee. That begs the question: what’s the best Dunkin Donuts drink? Read on to find out.

So….What’s the Best Dunkin Donuts Drink?

The best Dunkin Donuts drink is obviously their coffee. If you want a fancy drink filled with sugar then head on over to Starbucks, but if you want a good cup of Joe, the Dunkin Classic Original Blend will never let you down. Of course you can add half and half, almond milk or whatever else you want. Personally, I’m not wild about their almond milk, but it’s available for the vegans and almond milk fans out there.

Maybe you came here and were looking for the best Dunkin Donuts drinks that aren’t just regular coffee. Let’s go over some of the other best drinks at Dunkin.

Best Dunkin Iced Coffee Drinks

So what about Dunkin iced coffee? This is a coffee drink that is perfect for summer. It’s strong, it’s cold, it’s refreshing and best of all it’s okay to drink when it’s 85 degrees outside. Let’s go over some of the best Dunkin Donuts iced coffee drinks.

Dunkin Cold Brew

dunkin donuts cold brew

Dunkin makes awesome cold brew. In fact, it gives the regular old cup of coffee a run for its money! I prefer Dunkin cold brew to their iced coffee and it’s not even close.

As far as chain coffee goes, the Dunkin cold brew is as good as it gets, in my opinion. I like mine with just a little cream and light ice. Next time you’re looking for a cold, caffeinated beverage give it a shot!

Coconut Caramel Iced Coffee

A lot of people are turned off by coconut, but in my opinion, those people are insane. Coconut caramel is an awesome flavor for a Starbucks drink. It’s one of their “swirl” flavors which means it has sugar in it so you don’t need to add any sweeteners. Just add the Coconut Caramel Swirl along with some cream and you have yourself a refreshing iced coffee beverage. The Coconut Caramel Iced Coffee is a staple of my Dunkin drinks rotation. The coconut flavor goes great with the buttery smooth caramel taste.

Coco Berry Iced Coffee

This one might be a little bit out there, but if you like taking chances this is the drink for you. If this combination of flavors sounds tasty to you then give it a try. Despite such a creative drink, the Coco Berry Iced Coffee of the most popular iced coffee drinks at Dunkin. Somehow the blueberry flavor and coco seems to go well together for a smooth iced coffee flavor. Just add the swirl along with some cream and there you have it: the Coco Berry Iced Coffee.

Butter Pecan Swirl Iced Coffee

The Dunkin Butter Pecan Swirl is a delicious addition to Dunkin Donuts drinks. While this is great in the Dunkin iced coffee, I enjoy this swirl either hot or iced. So whether you want this in your hot morning coffee or you’re an iced coffee drinker, the Dunkin Butter Pecan Swirl is a great option for you.

Hazelnut Iced Coffee

Hazelnut flavor fans are a very loyal bunch so I had to include this in there. While you won’t catch me drinking anything hazelnut flavored, I had to give you a shoutout! To me hazelnut works better in hot coffee than iced coffee.

The Rest:

  • Caramel
  • French Vanilla
  • Mocha
  • Cake Batter
  • Brown Sugar Cinnamon
  • Pumpkin Spice

Different promotional flavor swirls come up and go, so keep your eye on the Dunkin Donuts app to make sure you don’t miss them. My choice out of “The Rest” is the Mocha Latte. There’s always someone in the group who grabs a Mocha Latte.

Best Sugar-Free Dunkin Iced Coffee Flavors

Dunkin Donuts has some great sugar-free iced coffee flavors that are perfect for those hot summer days. I’m a big fan of the Dunkin Donuts Sugar-Free French Vanilla and Sugar-Free Toasted Almond. They add just enough flavor to make your iced coffee delicious without all of the calories and sugar. Some of the other options include:

  • Toasted Almond
  • Hazelnut
  • Blueberry
  • Raspberry
  • Coconut

It’s strange (and annoying) to me that coconut flavor is only offered without sugar. I would love a sugary creamy coconut taste in my Dunkin Donuts iced coffee.

Best Dunkin Donuts Lattes

While you might not think of Dunkin when you think of lattes, they have a good variety of latte options. They can be ordered either hot or cold.

You can take any of the Dunkin flavors and put them in your latte. From the Butter Pecan Swirl to creating a Pumpkin Spice Latte, you have all types of latte options at Dunkin. Remember, the Pumpkin Spice latte is seasonal.

Also, Dunkin offers the trendy matcha latte and chai latte. These are beverages that have became increasingly popular recently and Dunkin made sure to get them on the menu.

Dunkin Donuts Signature Lattes

Dunkin also offers signature lattes. Here are the signature lattes:

  • Cocoa Mocha
  • Caramel Craze
  • Cake Batter

The Rest of What Dunkin Offers in Their Coffee Shops

There are still several offerings left to list from Dunkin. Most of these are something you can get at any coffee shop so of course Dunkin has them.

  • Hot Chocolate
  • Cappuccino
  • Macchiato
  • Americano
  • Espresso
  • Tea
  • Iced Tea
  • Refreshers

What’s the Best Non Coffee Drink at Dunkin?

Dunkin Convenience Store Beverages

If you want to enjoy Dunkin products but can’t make it to a Dunkin store, you can always grab a Dunkin Bottled Iced Coffee beverage. Of course, the Dunkin bottled iced coffee isn’t actually iced, but it’s still a good option when you can’t make it to the local Dunkin. The bottled iced coffee is offered as vanilla and original.

What is the Best Drink at Dunkin Donuts for Kids?

Since you probably don’t want your kids hopped up on caffeine, the best drink at Dunkin Donuts for kids is hot chocolate. You can get it with or without whipped cream. Odds are your kids will love hot chocolate and Dunkin makes delicious hot chocolate.


Personally when I think about visiting Dunkin Donuts and drinking coffee, I think of the good old Dunkin Classic Original Blend. But whether you are in the mood for a cold brew or any of the other Drunkin drinks, there’s a delicious drink at Dunkin for you.
