"The start of the summer season is the perfect time to expand our menu with coconut milk, another exciting non-dairy choice for our guests. From our colorful Dunkin' Coconut Refreshers to our creamy Coconutmilk Iced Latte, Dunkin' is crafting the coolest coconut milk beverages to keep our guests refreshed and running, throughout summer and all year-long" VP of marketing and culinary Jill Nelson said in a statement.
The new coconut refreshers will come in pink strawberry, golden peach, and blueberry pomegranate flavors. Beginning April 28, Dunkin' will sell medium coconut refreshers for a discounted price of $3 through May 25.
Non-dairy milk has exploded in recent years.
Starbucks has carried coconut milk since 2016, five years before Dunkin's launch, which is used to make Starbucks' famous "pink drink" when combined with the chain's own fruit refreshers line. Both chains sell almond milk, and Starbucks also has soy milk.
