America may run on Dunkin’, as the quick-service restaurant chain’s slogan contends, but the company’s newest retail product line puts a boozy twist on that promised productivity.
Boston-based Dunkin’ on Monday unveiled Dunkin’ Spiked Iced Coffees and Iced Teas, available for sale in stores across 12 states in the coming weeks.
For several years, Dunkin’ has partnered with Harpoon Brewery on a popular seasonal beer collaboration with flavors such as Dunkin’ Harpoon IPA Donut and Harpoon Dunkin’ Cold Brew Coffee Porter.
“We knew we had the opportunity to create something special when we saw the positive response to our previous seasonal collaborations for Dunkin’-inspired beers,” Brian Gilbert, vice president of retail business development, said in a statement. “The growing appetite for adult beverages inspired us to put a twist on our customers’ favorite Dunkin’ Iced Coffee, Iced Tea and Refresher flavors.
Dunkin’ Spiked Iced Coffees, with an ABV of 6%, are available in Original, Caramel, Mocha and Vanilla, and can be purchased in a mixed 12-can pack, four-pack of Original cans or a single, 19.2-ounce Original can. The iced coffee line will debut in early September.
Dunkin’ Spiked Iced Tea comes in Slightly Sweet Iced Tea, Half & Half Iced Tea, Strawberry Dragonfruit Iced Tea Refresher and Mango Pineapple Iced Tea. The line, which will be available later this month, is also available in a mixed 12-pack, a six-pack of Slightly Sweet or a single, 19.2-ounce can of Slightly Sweet. All of the teas have an ABV of 5%.
The drinks will be sold at retailers in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Vermont.
Dunkin’ has long sold a wide range of retail products, including ground coffees and coffee pods, creamer, cold brew and more.
“Notably, the Dunkin’ Spiked line of products will not be available at Dunkin’ restaurant locations,” the Inspire Brands-owned chain noted.
