Our Favorite Secret Menu Items at Dunkin

The standard menu soon loses its luster when you make morning iced coffee pit stops as often as I do. Fortunately, Dunkin’ has a virtually limitless mix-and-match array of drinks, shots, and swirls to keep things interesting. 

It’s not always easy to concoct my own combinations, though.

That’s where the Dunkin’ Donuts secret menu comes in, with tried-and-tested hacks that make my morning pit stop a little more interesting. 

I’ve gathered up nine of my personal favorites off of the secret menu at Dunkin ‘, including some non-caffeinated options for those of you who have the magic ability to make it through the day without an iced coffee in the morning.

Toasted French Vanilla Iced Coffee

Dairy-free doesn’t have to mean flavor-free. In fact, this almond milk alternative might be more delicious than the original!

Thanks to the deep, nutty flavors, the Toasted French Vanilla Iced Coffee tastes like a coffee-infused vanilla macaron. 

You can make this one dairy-free and caffeine-free by swapping out the iced coffee for hot chocolate.

Once you bring chocolate into the mix, those toasty-vanilla flavors almost taste like a s’more sans the sticky fingers. 

The Secret Code: Ask for an iced coffee, swap out the dairy for almond milk, then one shot each of French vanilla and toasted almond. 

Caramel Coconut Creme Pie Iced Coffee

For coffee lovers who prefer their cup of joe to taste more like a dessert, this is the drink for you.

Creamy, dreamy coconut creme pie meets buttery caramel for a truly magical start to your mornings. 

The Caramel Coconut Creme Pie Iced Coffee is extra indulgent, and the addition of whip on top gives it some much-needed creaminess to cut through all the sweetness. 

The Secret Code: Start with a standard iced coffee with milk, add a caramel shot, then finish it off with an indulgent Coconut Creme Pie Flavor Swirl and whipped cream.

Frozen Chocolate Covered Strawberry Drink

Just because it isn’t Valentine’s Day yet doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxurious flavors of chocolate-covered strawberries.

Show yourself some love any day of the year by combining delicious Dunkin’ Frozen Chocolate with a sweet berry twist.  

You’re definitely going to want to pace yourself with the Frozen Chocolate Covered Strawberry.

Order it once, and you might find yourself pulling into the Dunkin’ parking lot way more often than before you discovered this chocolatey treat. 

The Secret Code: This one’s super easy– Order a Frozen Chocolate with strawberry flavor, and enjoy!

Coco Berry

If you’re of the mind that blueberry cake donuts are easily the best breakfast pastry available, the secret menu at Dunkin’ has quite a treat for you.

By adding a shot of blueberry and a Mocha Flavor Swirl to a plain ol’ iced coffee, you can enjoy a drink that tastes more like a baked good than a cup of java.

The humble blueberry is a seriously slept-on member of the chocolate + berry squad. But, after enjoying a Coco Berry Iced Coffee, it just might take the top spot from the classic chocolate-strawberry combo for good. 

The Secret Code: Request an iced latte with a Mocha Flavor Swirl, then add a shot of blueberry. 

Pina Colada Coolatta

This is a non-caffeinated drink, but the fact that it tastes like a smooth sip of tropical paradise makes up for it.

The Pina Colada Coolatta– or Pina Coolada, as I like to call it– is everything you’d expect from the classic frozen cocktail, except you won’t need to show ID when you order. 

All you’re missing now are some palm trees, a sandy swimsuit, and a hunky lifeguard on duty for the ultimate oceanside experience.

The Secret Code: Sip your way to a mental day on the beach by ordering a Pineapple Coolatta with a Coconut Creme Pie Flavor Swirl.

Peaches and Cream Coolatta

Peaches are my absolute favorite fruit. I don’t know if it’s the unique fuzzy skin or the fact that it tastes like summertime sunshine in every juicy bite, but either way, it’s somehow even better when you sip it through a straw. 

The simple combination of Vanilla Bean Coolatta with peach flavor creates one of the most irresistible Dunkin’ secret menu drinks available. 

If you’re a fan of Chick-Fil-A’s seasonal Peach Milkshake, the Peaches and Cream Coolatta should hold you over until next summer rolls around. 

The Secret Code: Get a Vanilla Bean Coolatta with three shots of peach flavor. Go for the extra whip on this one!

Frozen Snickers Bar

Some simple pleasures in life can’t be beat, like when a cat chooses to sit in your lap over everyone else’s, waking up at 2:00 AM and seeing you still have a few more hours to sleep, and a Frozen Snickers Bar from the secret menu at Dunkin’. 

Of all the drinks on the list, this one’s the closest to the real thing. It genuinely tastes like chunks of Snickers tossed into a blender with some coffee ice cream. 

This might be the only way you can toss back a candy bar for breakfast without getting any judgemental looks from your coworkers.

The Secret Code: To achieve candy bar bliss, you’ll want a Frozen Mocha with a Hazelnut Flavor Swirl and Salted Caramel Swirl. Don’t tell your dentist. 

Nutella Surprise Iced Coffee

What’s the surprise, you ask? How closely Dunkin’ Donuts secret menu drink tastes like its namesake hazelnut spread! 

Skip the toast and get your morning Nutella fix right through a straw with the help of a Mocha Flavor Swirl and a couple of shots of hazelnutty goodness in your Iced Coffee. 

This one is pretty tasty hot, too, and that means a lot coming from someone who drinks iced coffee even in the dead of winter. 

The Secret Code: Order a Mocha Iced Coffee with two shots of hazelnut. This one’s also delicious frozen!

Strawberry Pineapple Coolatta

Starbucks has pretty much clinched the whole “post your aesthetic drink on Instagram trend,” but the secret menu at Dunkin has a few hidden gems that could easily infiltrate your feed. 

The Strawberry Pineapple Coolatta is a sweet-yet-tart layered drink that comes together to delight your taste buds with a smooth “lemonade-esque” flavor. 

Seriously, this one’s so yummy; it just might become your new go-to order. I promise not to tell your usual iced latte that you’re stepping out on it. 

The Secret Code: For this fruity explosion, request a Strawberry Coolatta layered on top of a Pineapple Coolatta.
