Dunkin’ Just Launched A New Coffee Flavor That Tastes Like A Banana Split
This might be the best coffee idea ever!
Put down your vanilla latte, and stop daydreaming about pumpkin spice. There’s a new coffee hitting the menu at Dunkin’ — and I’m pretty sure it’s going to rival all the others.
Dunkin’s new out-of-this-world seasonal menu features a handful of new and returning fan favorite drinks, including coffee drinks inspired by Baskin-Robbins ice cream. Among them: past favorite butter pecan, plus new flavors, pistachio almond fudge and, perhaps the best coffee idea ever, banana split!
Dunkin’ says in a press release that this is the first time the tastes of a classic banana split sundae have made their way into a Dunkin’ coffee. The drink combines the flavors of banana with hints of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice creams.
The returning butter pecan, meanwhile, pairs butter-roasted pecan and sweet cream flavors, while the new pistachio almond fudge combines a hint of almond with a chocolatey fudge finish.
Though the banana split flavor may be new, it’s already proving to be a hit — at least judging by the flood of positive reviews on Twitter.
Twitter user @shianna_lewis sent this shout-out to the inventor of the banana split coffee:

Meanwhile, @KingAnders23 and @LizziEllsworth agreed, using a slew of emojis to describe the “10/10” flavor of the beverage:

But banana split isn’t the only Dunkin’ flavor to get some love. Customers also took to Twitter to share their appreciation for the new pistachio almond coffee and the returning butter pecan flavor:
Twitter user @OhhItsJessicaX described the pistachio option as “everything that I didn’t know I needed.” She also gave it an all-caps “SO GOOD.”

Plus, @IMNICKSIMBOLI shared his excitement over the return of butter pecan iced coffee:

The recently added coffee flavors are clearly going over well with Dunkin’ fans. But those aren’t the only new item on the menu that customers have to look forward to.
Also new for the season is a line-up of Cosmic Coolatta frozen drinks that Dunkin’ says “bring a constellation of colors to each cup” and are perfect for stargazing or sipping in honor of the celebration of the Moon Landing’s 50th anniversary on July 20.
Each drink brings together blue raspberry and another flavor like grape, pineapple or strawberry. They each come specially layered to create a bright, galactic look.
Along with the drinks, there’s also a new space-themed doughnut on the menu. The Shooting Star Donut lives up to its name with its star shape. It also boasts white icing and blue raspberry-flavored popping candy clusters in blue, purple and yellow.
Want to go allnout with the space theme? You can even pair the Shooting Star Donut with one of the new Cosmic Coolattas. After all, why not? They do look like a pretty delicious combo:
You can enjoy the Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavors in hot and iced coffees, espresso beverages, frozen coffee and frozen chocolate. All new items on the summer menu will be available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide.
