Disclosure: I was provided with food and drink samples at a tasting event to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
Every year, the closer it gets to Fall, the more excited I get. Why? Pumpkin season, duh! I have a serious love for pumpkins and I'm delighted to announce that the pumpkin is back at Dunkin Donuts! That's not all though. I recently had the pleasure of hanging out with awesome peeps for a mini tasting at one of our newest Dunkin Donuts cafes.

My FavoritesOut of all of the drinks we tried I have to admit that the Pumpkin Iced Coffee was my favorite of the cold drinks and I really enjoyed the hot Rainforest Alliance Certified Dark Roast Coffee. The Dark Roast is a new addition to the Dunkin Donuts menu and is currently available nationwide. Being Rainforest Alliance Certified means that the Dark Roast "is made with at least 30% coffee beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods . . . [as well as] helps to protect wildlife; safeguard soils and waterways; and improve quality of life for workers, their families and local communities in order to achieve true, long-term sustainability."
You can sample their new hot Dark Roast for yourself on National Coffee Day, September 29th. Participating Dunkin Donuts will be offering customers a FREE medium cup of Dunkin Donuts hot Dark Roast Coffee (one per guest). After the 29th until October 5th, you can purchase a medium Dark Roast Coffee for the special price of 99 cents. So, be sure to take advantage of both of these special offers.
Also among my favorites are the new Pumpkin Muffin and their new Spicy Smoked Sausage Breakfast Sandwich. If you're not a fan of spicy foods, then you will definitely want to steer clear of the Spicy Smoked Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, but if you're a heat lover like me, then try it out. I did get it on good authority that Dunkin Donuts is hoping to release some gluten-free options in the future. I'm super excited because then the kids will be able to enjoy breakfast from Dunkin Donuts as well.
|Home from school for only 5 minutes before she decided to lay claim to my swag bag goodies.|
Before we left, they did give us each our own Dunkin Donuts swag bag that included some coupon booklets (y'all know I love to save $$), a gift card, a coffee tumbler and two bags of coffee. As you can see from the picture above, somebody else was happy to see my swag bag, too. While I usually just have their Original Blend, I've been killing the French Vanilla these last few days. It smells so good and has a very smooth finish.
