Dunkin’ is introducing its holiday menu a day earlier than rival Starbucks.
The chain is adding toasted white chocolate signature latte and white mocha hot chocolate to its menu as a limited offering. The popular peppermint mocha signature latte is making its return.
The chain is also introducing a new holiday blend coffee, that is described as “blending quality Colombian and Ethiopian coffees for seasonal flavor notes of sweet molasses and dried fruit.”
The company is selling the new option for $2 for a medium from Nov. 3, 2021 to Dec. 1, 2021.
Dunkin’ is also introducing Pancake Minis, which are sold in batches of six and include maple flavored bits baked into the dough. A side of syrup is included as well.
The chain is also bringing back its chicken, bacon and cheese Croissant Stuffer.
New this year is a cranberry orange muffin.
The chain is also planning to start serving beverages in new holiday themed cups.
“Featuring the holiday’s simple, perfectly imperfect joys – candy crumbs, tangled lights, peeking at gifts, or just shaking up the logo – to embrace the pure enjoyment of the little holiday moments with the people that matter most,” the company said in a statement.
Worldwide supply chain issues have sparked some reports of locations not having the new cups in stock as of the Nov. 3, 2021 launch as well as shortages of some ingredients.
