Dunkin' Side-Eyes Starbucks With Its New Summery Refresher Drink

Dunkin' has a whole slew of new offerings just in time for the warmer weather, including the return of a fan favorite and a fruity iced drink that looks a little familiar. As of April 26, 2023, the Raspberry Watermelon Dunkin' Refresher has joined its menu, Dunkin' announced in a press release. Dunkin' first introduced its Refresher beverages smack dab in the middle of summer 2020, a smart move in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dunkin' Refreshers were the largest product launch for the company since 2016 when the company introduced its Cold Brew. Of course, Dunkin' was undoubtedly borrowing a page from Starbucks' book: Starbucks Refreshers have been a hit since 2012.

Aside from the new Raspberry Watermelon Dunkin' Refresher, the Mango Pineapple Dunkin' Refresher is back on the menu as well. These two offerings join another mainstay flavor: Strawberry Dragonfruit, and are available with choices of green tea, coconut milk, or lemonade for the base.

What else is new at Dunkin'?

In the coffee category, the Turtle Signature Latte and Butter Pecan Crunch Frozen Coffee are also new to the Dunkin' menu as of April 26, 2023. The butter pecan flavor swirl Dunkin' uses in both the Turtle Signature Latte and Butter Pecan Crunch Frozen Coffee will be back on the menu — and this time, it's permanent. Fans of this popular flavor swirl can add it to any of their favorite Dunkin' drinks. Dunkin' is also introducing a new butter pecan buttercream-filled donut that is topped with vanilla icing and a crunchy topping. A Ham and Swiss Croissant Stuffer and Iced Lemon Loaf round out the new food offerings at Dunkin' for the season.

To really hype up butter pecan lovers, fans can write a Twitter story to Dunkin' about how much they love the flavor using the hashtag #ButterPeContest until April 28 for a chance to win free butter pecan beverages for a year. Dunkin' is also doubling down on rewards in May with lots of free items available in the Dunkin' Rewards app, including a free medium coffee (hot or iced) with a purchase every Monday for the whole month. Other coupons give Dunkin' fans a shot to sample the new menu items for free. All new drinks and snacks are available as of April 26, 2023, marking the start of a very refreshing spring for Dunkin' fans.
