Do you know that cookie butter has been round since 2007? It was first pitched on a Belgium TV competitors present (just like Shark Tank) and caught the eye of Lotus Biscoff. The candy, spiced unfold is a singular mix of flavors that I wasn’t certain Dunkin’ might seize in its latest vacation providing — the Cookie Butter Chilly Brew.
Beginning with the slow-steeped chilly brew espresso, the drink is then sweetened with a brown sugar cookie taste, topped with cookie butter chilly foam, and completed with cookie butter crumbles. Being a chilly brew fan, I used to be completely happy that the latest vacation drink wasn’t a scorching beverage. Don’t get me fallacious, I’ll completely get pleasure from a scorching peppermint mocha the week of Christmas, even when the climate continues to be within the 80s, however I like to stay with chilly drinks more often than not.
I used to be completely happy to see it look pretty near the promotional supplies. The primary sip was principally a mouthful of the crunchy cookie butter crumble, however as soon as the chilly brew broke by, I received a greater sense of the general drink. In contrast to a majority of Dunkin’ espresso drinks I’ve tried, the sweetness stage was rather more measured. The stability of the spice from the cookie butter crumbles and chilly foam cuts down on the cloyingly candy nature of most Dunkin’ drinks.
The cookie butter chilly foam was scrumptious from the bit I might style. Sadly, on the 10-minute experience residence, it had all however dissolved into the beverage. Whereas it was not as sturdy, it blended properly by including a creaminess to the sturdy chilly brew. The brown sugar cookie taste wasn’t as noticeable, however when competing with a really loud style like cookie butter, that’s not a shock. I can’t converse on its comparability to the a lot missed Starbucks Gingerbread Latte, however the sturdy cookie butter taste definitely invokes a gingerbread-like style.
Whereas the chilly foam blended in properly because it melted, the cookie butter crumbles didn’t fare so properly. By the point I received residence, half sat on the prime like cereal floating on the chilly brew, and the opposite half had sunk to the underside. Mixing simply made them smaller and created a bizarre mouth really feel to the sips that had been like moist sand.
Dunkin’s Cookie Butter Chilly Brew is a singular providing that, with these preliminary sips, brings a enjoyable taste to the chain’s vacation lineup. Sadly, if you’re a gradual drinker like myself, you threat it melting right into a much less nice consuming expertise, texturally talking. The general taste is great, however not ok for me to disregard the gritty crumble that settled to the underside of my cup.
