With the holiday season fast approaching, Dunkin’s holiday specials are officially on the menu and students are sharing their favorite drink orders.
1. Pumpkin Chai Latte
Dunkin’ serves its autumn flavored drinks from August to early November. Fall flavors include pumpkin, maple, and others.
Mya Bembry, a marketing major, said she loves ordering the flavored drinks in the fall.
“My favorite is anything pumpkin, but especially the pumpkin chai latte,” she said.
In addition to the fall drink, Bembry said she loves the pumpkin donut. As for her usual order, she likes simplicity.
“I go for a sweet tea and sometimes I get a croissant with an egg and cheese,” she said. “I come here after basketball practice all the time.”
2. Cookie Butter Cold Infusion
The winter season is also a time for Dunkin to advertise its holiday flavored drinks like Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate and Cookie Butter.
Chelsea Major, a junior psychology student, said she likes to make her order a bit more festive during the winter season.
“I really like the cookie butter flavor, I probably order it at least twice a week,” she said. “Sometimes I get a wake-up wrap or hash browns with it.”
Major said she would recommend other students try this holiday drink.

“But maybe after I got it because I’m sick of them missing it,” she said.
3. Peppermint Mocha Latte
Dunkin fan Anastasia Kinsella, a sophomore in corporate marketing, said her favorite holiday drink was the peppermint mocha latte.
“I just like the peppermint flavor in general,” she said. “It also means that Christmas is coming.”
Kinsella said she ordered the drink for more therapeutic reasons.
“I think most people would like the mint latte because it’s like a pre-Christmas hug,” she said. “I usually order it whenever I’m stressed to help me relax.”
4. Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Similar to Kinsella, sophomore speech-language pathology student Francesca Violante said she loves peppermint hot chocolate to get her in the holiday mood.
“I love peppermint because it feels like Christmas,” she said. “I get it about once or twice a week before class.”
She said she would recommend this drink if the students like mint flavored drinks.
“I think it gets you in the Christmas spirit too,” Violante said.
5. Grilled White Chocolate Latte
Another holiday drink at Dunkin’ is the toasted white chocolate flavor.
Layla Clark, a young business student, said her favorite holiday dish was grilled white chocolate latte.
“Honestly, I don’t really like the taste of coffee, but the flavors blended into this coffee are really good,” she said. “I order it about once a week.”
Clark said she recommends this latte to college students, like her, who aren’t fans of the traditional coffee flavor.
“I would recommend it especially if you don’t like the taste of coffee but want to try something new,” she said. “It’s better when the right person does it but even if someone does it, it’s still drinkable.”
