Dreams really do come true. On Thursday (February 20), Dunkin' confirmed rumors they will be adding Matcha Lattes to their menus. The tasty new beverage will be available nationwide next week after a successful test run in Springfield, MA, and Phoenix, AZ.
“Whether you’re an avid Matcha Latte drinker or are trying it for the first time, guests can expect an authentic, quality experience with Dunkin’s Matcha Lattes," Paul Racicot, Director of Global Culinary Innovation at Dunkin’ Brands, said in a statement. "We’re excited to offer millions of Americans a delicious new way to run on Dunkin’ that perfectly matches the iconic brightness and energy that they know and love from our brand.”
According to Delish, Dunkin's matcha lattes will be made with matcha green tea powder, which was "produced in the Nishio region of Aichi prefecture, Japan, where the finest Matcha has been grown for more than 800 years." The matcha will be blended with the customer's choice of milk, including whole, almond and skim, and it can be served hot, iced, or frozen. So many choices!
As if three new versions of a Matcha Latte hitting Dunkin's menu wasn't enough, the coffee chain revealed they're adding Protein Muffins to the lineup, as well. The Protein Muffin offers 16 grams of protein and features blueberries, cranberries, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. The Protein Muffin will only be available for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ locations.
Match Lattes and Protein Muffins will be available for purchase beginning on Tuesday (February 26). Which one will you be trying?
