Menu innovation offers excitement in that new bite. Even if guests have their preferred coffee order or even a favorite donut, the reality is that a new food can entice a switch. With the new Dunkin Winter Menu, biscuits, lattes, and a deep, dark roast coffee end the year on a flavorful note.

Over the past year, Dunkin has shown that food is just as important as its coffee offerings. While America will always run on Dunkin, the reality is that food rounds out the meal. Beyond the sweet donut, it is the savory menu items that are exciting guests.

One of the new menu items is Stuffed Biscuit Bites. After the success of the omelet bites, the Stuffed Biscuit Bites surround bacon, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese with warm, flakey biscuit dough. It is the best of a breakfast sandwich in a smaller format. Even though these bites are small, they satisfy in a big way.

Another new menu item is the Bacon Avocado Tomato Sandwich. This idea builds on other avocado offerings on the menu. The robust garlic and spices on the oven-roasted tomatoes offset the cherrywood smoked bacon and creamy avocado spread. Served on sourdough bread, it is well balanced bite.

Since all these savory menu items need a beverage pairing, the new Brown Butter Toffee Latte is a lovely choice. The nuttiness from the brown butter combined with a caramel-like toffee is quite tasty. Instead of that popular caramel latte, this option has a little more depth of flavor.

While the Dunkin winter menu announcement came on the shortest daylight day of the year, Dunkin add a super dark brew to the menu. The Dunkin Midnight is intense. Combining a slightly bittersweet chocolate with rich coffee has many people embracing the darkness.

As Jill McVicar Nelson, Chief Marketing Officer at Dunkin’ said, ’We hear it all the time: Dunkin’ needs a dark roast. Meet Dunkin’ Midnight, the dark side of Dunkin’ you never knew we had. It’s bold, it’s smooth, and it’s unlike any coffee you’ve had from Dunkin’ before. If you thought you knew us before, we invite you to try our boldest brew yet.”
