Dunkin' Donuts is ringing in the New Year with the return of two coffee flavors inspired by Girl Scout Cookies. Under a licensing agreement with GSUSA, Dunkin' will bring back Coconut Caramel- and Thin Mints-inspired coffee flavors.
The duo of flavors will be available Jan. 1 through spring 2020 at participating Dunkin' restaurants across the U.S. Since 2018, Dunkin' has featured Girl Scout Cookie-inspired coffees on its menu for limited-time promotions in celebration of Girl Scout Cookie season, which kicks off nationally in January.
"Girl Scout Cookie season is as welcomed and anticipated as the ball dropping on New Year's Eve, and we're thrilled to celebrate by bringing two smile-eliciting Girl Scout Cookie-inspired flavors back to guests' coffees in 2020," says Patty Healy, senior director, integrated marketing, Dunkin’ Donuts. "We are proud to support Girl Scouts of the USA's mission to build the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders, as it's the leadership and entrepreneurialism of small business owners that has fueled the success of our own brand, too. We are especially proud that our franchisees are committed to fueling the entrepreneurial spirit of the Girl Scouts by welcoming local troops to sell cookies at their restaurants."
Guests can enjoy the Coconut Caramel and Thin Mints coffee flavors as part of the brand's handcrafted espresso experience. Both are also available in Dunkin's full lineup of hot and iced coffee, cold brew, frozen coffee and frozen chocolate.
Select Dunkin' franchisees will also allow Girl Scouts to flex their entrepreneurial skills by running Girl Scout Cookie booths at select Dunkin' restaurants across the country.
"We are grateful to Dunkin' for sharing our signature flavors with a larger audience and opening their doors to Girl Scout entrepreneurs again this cookie season," says Barry Horowitz, chief revenue officer, GSUSA. "Each cookie purchase is an investment in girl leaders of today and the future, and girls learn imperative entrepreneurship skills through each sale. Dunkin' is making it possible for more girls to have fun and impactful experiences through the Girl Scout Cookie Program."
