In 2019, the world was introduced to a new pumpkin-flavored creation, the pumpkin cream cold brew, which debuted at Starbucks. This year, Dunkin’ is following suit with a pumpkin cream cold brew, expanding the company’s offerings of pumpkin-spiced–flavored options. 

Most Dunkin’ menu items can have pumpkin spice added into it, including coffees, espresso, hot chocolate, chai lattes, and more.
