Dunkin' Donuts Seasonal Coffee Flavors and An In-Home Party!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin' Donuts. I received a Dunkin' Donuts Party Kit to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I must admit that I am not normally a coffee drinker.  I only like coffee if it's iced or if it contains tons of creamer and sugar!  I normally grab a soda for my early morning caffeine intake!  Even though I don't normally enjoy coffee, I was intrigued to try the new seasonal flavors of in home coffee that Dunkin' Donuts has to offer!  Don't Coconut, Strawberry Shortcake and Triple Berry sound good to you?!  Even better, Dunkin' Donuts has a great iced coffee recipe that I was able to try along with these great flavors.  I was also given some great gifts to give my party goers when they came to my Dunkin' Donuts Party!

I got to invite 7 guests, so I planned my party for Mother's Day and got to work making some yummy snacks to go along with this yummy coffee.  My mother-in-law loves coffee and hasn't ever tried these new flavors, so I knew she was the first person that I should invite.  My dad loves to drink coffee as well.  He likes his black, so I wasn't sure what he'd think of these flavors...  My sister is a soda drinker like me, but she loves iced coffees and the occasional cappuccino.  I also invited the rest of the family - not sure of everyone's coffee preferences.

Each guest got to take home one flavor of Dunkin' Donuts Seasonal Coffee - I let them each choose their favorite (they were mostly fighting over the coconut).  They also received a reusable Dunkin' Donuts bag - great for bringing home groceries, a reusable tumbler with straw - my husband is in love with his, and a coupon and recipe for some iced coffee!

Now, on to the Dunkin' Donuts coffee flavors and what we thought of them!  First we all sampled the Dunkin' Donuts Triple Berry flavor.  I usually love berry flavored things, so was excited to try this one.  Although I am not a coffee drinker normally, I found this flavor nice.  It wasn't too overbearing, so a traditional coffee drinker won't be overwhelmed with berry flavor.  (It still tastes like coffee)  I liked the subtle flavors and wasn't too tempted to cover it up with my normal massive amounts of sugar and creamer.  My dad thought it was okay, but I doubt he will be switching from his black coffee any time soon.  (Though his favorite is a Dunkin' Donuts brand!)  My mother-in-law loved the flavor and declared it her favorite (before tasting the other two!)

The next flavor we tried was Dunkin' Donuts Strawberry Shortcake.  I love strawberry shortcake so was excited to see what this one tasted like as well.  I loved it!  We also went ahead and tried this with an iced coffee recipe and the verdict by all was: DELICIOUS!

  • 3/4 C of your ground Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee (We used the new Strawberry Shortcake)
  • 3 C of Cold Water, Divided
  • 1/3 C of Sugar
  • 1/2 C of Half-and-half
  • Whipped Cream (optional)
  1. Brew coffee in a coffee maker, use 3/4 cup ground coffee and 1-1/2 cups water.
  2. Combine hot coffee, sugar and half and half in a pitcher. Stir to dissolve sugar. Blend in 1 1/2 cups cold water.
  3. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. Fill tall glass with ice
  5. Add whipped cream for a tasty dessert-type of treat!
Lastly we tried the Dunkin' Donuts Coconut flavor.  I honestly didn't think we'd like this one as much as the other two, but I was wrong!  Coconut was everyone's favorite!  Even my mother-in-law who earlier declared Triple Berry her favorite.  I loved this flavor so much, that I may just switch to drinking coffe instead of my usual soda in the morning!

My in-home Dunkin' Donuts party was a success and everyone had a great time trying out these new flavors.  The only problem is that they are in stores for a limited time, so hurry out and pick up one or all of these flavors to try for yourself!  These flavors, really got me into the spring/summer mood!
