Nothing beats a piece of chilled, fresh fruit on a hot summer day. That’s why more and more cool fruity drinks are popping up on every fast food restaurant’s seasonal beverage menu. Burger King, for one, brought back their Wild Cherry Frozen Fanta for the season. But if you’re looking to surprise your taste buds, these new Dunkin’ Refreshers are for you! These new Refreshers are bursting with a combination of sweet and zesty fruit flavors that’s sure to liven up your summer days!
There are two Refreshers for you to choose and sip on this summer. Both are infused with familiar and exotic fruit flavors that you’ll definitely love. One’s infused with Strawberry and Dragonfruit while the other features a mix of Peach and Passion Fruit. The seasonal sips officially hit the menu on June 17th and people have been raving about them since. Before its launch, Jill Nelson, vice president for marketing strategy, said this in a press release:
“Dunkin’ has been there to keep our guests running these difficult months. Now, with the start of summer, it’s the perfect time for something fresh and exciting to energize and enliven people again. With a combination of iced green tea, B vitamins, and bright bursts of flavor, Dunkin’ Refreshers stand apart as the perfect, new choice to help anyone get their glow back.”
Liven up your summer with the new Refreshers
Since the Refreshers have hit the menu, many have already gotten their hands on the drinks like Instagrammers @snackgator and @dadbodsnacks. Snack Gator was quick to say that the drinks were “just like the Starbucks Refreshers”, while Dad Bod Snacks had a more in-depth review of drinks. The Instagrammer tried the Strawberry Dragonfruit and was pleasantly surprised by the drink. In his post, he described the drink to have “a light and a slightly watery green tea” taste that doesn’t have the astringent aftertaste that tea sometimes has. He also added that,
“The strawberry/dragonfruit combo is VERY tasty and not overly sweet. Which I did NOT expect. I imagined it would be a sugar bomb, but no. A nice sweetness and very pleasant blend of strawberries and dragonfruit. And there’s almost 100 grams of caffeine in this medium size drink, so I’m feeling extra good right now!”

So I scooped up the #new @dunkin Refresher today and picked Strawberry Dragonfruit (less ice). First thing I notice, the name is perfect. It actually is refreshing! Lol. It’s a very light and a slightly watery green tea. But there’s no astringent after taste or dryness that some teas leave in your mouth. It’s…refreshing. And the strawberry/dragonfruit combo is VERY tasty and not overly sweet. Which I did NOT expect. I imagined it would be a sugar bomb, but no. A nice sweetness and very present blend of strawberries and dragonfruit. I wish I could tell you if it leans more to the strawberry side or the dragonfruit side but, I don’t have much experience with dragonfruit. Great name, looks real cool, but…thats it. I know its the new hot trend too. Many things this summer will be dragonfruity. Lol. So, I did it! And there’s almost 100 grams of caffeine in this medium size drink so, I’m feeling extra good right now. Overall, 8.5/10, great summer drink with caffeine! . . . #caffiene #caffeine #dunkin #dunkinrefreshers #strawberry #dragonfruit #mmm #summertime #newdrink #thirsty #thirstythursday #donuts #greentea #parentfuel
These fruity Refreshers will give you a boost
So, it seems that aside from the tasty fruity flavors, we can expect a dose of caffeine in every sip of the Refresher. And despite their bright color, the company disclosed that their fruit concentrates are free from artificial dyes and flavors. It seems that the Strawberry Dragonfruit Refresher is quickly becoming a crowd favorite. But the only way for you to really decide whether the Strawberry Dragonfruit or the Peach Passion Fruit Refresher is the summer favorite is by sipping on it yourself. The drinks’ fruity combos sure seem like great mocktails. So if you’re in the mood for a little buzz, just add a splash of vodka!
And to make things sweeter, you can grab a medium-size Refresher for just $2 all day at participating locations until July 28th. You can also order the Refreshers using the Dunkin’ App for a contact and hassle-free transaction. You can also grab this cool sip at their drive-thru or as a carry-out item. Don’t you just love how cool summer sips are?
