CANTON, MA (March 27, 2019)
With spring’s renewal, Dunkin’ is turning to one of the most iconic treats of Easter to make the season especially happy, bright and colorful for both coffee and donut lovers. Dunkin’ today announced that PEEPS® have arrived for April. The festive and fun flavor of this favorite treat is featured in the new PEEPS® Marshmallow flavored coffee and espresso drinks, and the PEEPS® Donut is topped with an iconic Yellow Chick.
Additionally, Dunkin’ has several other delicious menu items springing onto the menu in April, including the new Chocolate Cherry Cold Brew, the new Sweet Sriracha Bacon Breakfast Sandwich, Iced Tea Lemonade and Frozen Lemonade. There is also a special offer to enjoy any medium-sized Dunkin’ Cold Brew for only $2 from 2 PM to 6PM during the month.
The PEEPS® Have Landed
Available beginning April 1, Dunkin’s PEEPS® Donut brings an extra bit of sweetness to spring with white icing, a special green and egg-shaped sprinkle blend and a mini yellow PEEPS® Marshmallow Chick on top. New PEEPS® Marshmallow flavored coffee brings the delightful, creamy taste of classic PEEPS® Marshmallow to Dunkin’s hot and iced coffee, espresso drinks, frozen coffee and frozen chocolate. And, although it’s egg-hunting season, fans of both Dunkin’ and PEEPS® won’t need to look too hard for these new items, as both will be offered at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide for a limited time and while supplies last.
To “drive” even more excitement and chances to enjoy these new items, PEEPS® and Dunkin’ are hitting the road together to surprise fans with free coffee and donuts. From April 2 – 4, Dunkin’s custom-sculpted coffee car will travel alongside the PEEPSMOBILE®, starting from the hometown of PEEPS® in Bethlehem, PA and heading toward Dunkin’s birthplace of Quincy, MA. Along the route, both cars will stop at a total of six Dunkin’ restaurants. When these unique cars arrive, the first 250 guests will be offered a free small PEEPS® Marshmallow Flavored Iced Coffee, PEEPS® Donut and other giveaways, while supplies last.
