The new drink is manufactured and distributed by The Coca-Cola Company.

Dunkin’ Donuts’ Shot in the Dark coffee-espresso blend combines the coffee retailer’s coffee, espresso, cream and sugar in a compact can. Flavors include caramel, mocha and vanilla.

Shot in the Dark is available now at select retail locations and will continue to roll out at convenience stores and grocery stores across the U.S. through 2019.

"Our fans have loved our ready-to-drink iced coffees as a great way to power through their day with Dunkin' anytime and anywhere," says Brian Gilbert, vice president, retail business development, Dunkin' Donuts. "Now, for the coffee-loving consumers who want something a little bolder than a traditional cup of coffee, but not as strong as a shot of espresso, our Shot in the Dark creates an exciting and energizing new option when on-the-go."

Dunkin’ Donuts will also launch its Pumpkin Spice Bottled Ice Coffee this month at retailers nationwide.

The Coca-Cola Company and its bottling partners have been manufacturing and distributing pre-packaged Dunkin' Donuts goods since 2017.
