REVIEW: Dunkin’ Butter Pecan Crunch Frozen Espresso


Keep in mind years in the past when Dunkin’ used to have a drink known as the Espresso Coolatta? Keep in mind the way it was the right degree of sweetness, with simply sufficient pure espresso taste to scratch that itch for the true stuff with out ever descending into bitterness?

Should you don’t bear in mind, it’s possible you’ll be acquainted with Dunkin’s Frozen Espresso, the drink it launched to exchange the Espresso Coolatta in 2017. In principle, Frozen Espresso has a extra pronounced espresso taste and is meant to be an all-around higher concoction. Nonetheless, I simply tried one on a whim just a few weeks in the past and located the espresso style too sharp (and I’m somebody who usually drinks black espresso), whereas the entire thing danced just under the extent of being sickeningly candy. Perhaps I obtained a foul batch, nevertheless it was simply an excessive amount of of a superb factor. I respect what Dunkin’ was making an attempt to do, however I miss my Coolatta one thing fierce.

Now, with the Butter Pecan Crunch Frozen Espresso, is it time for me to make peace with this new actuality? Based on Dunkin’, the drink has Frozen Espresso, Butter Pecan Swirl syrup, and Cocoa Caramel Sprinkles. The beverage is topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and “much more” Cocoa Caramel sprinkles. I didn’t actually style the sprinkles within the drink itself, nonetheless.

At first, the drink had that pronounced espresso taste that I didn’t get pleasure from with my earlier Frozen Espresso. “I knew I couldn’t belief this blasted Frozen Espresso!” I assumed, dejected. However as I sipped, one thing started to occur; the mild sweetness of the Butter Pecan Swirl syrup tempered the flavour, making a extra delicate, virtually authentic Coolatta-like taste. The flavour addition positively had some butteriness, however I didn’t actually get a nuttiness. I believe the general sweetness might need overwhelmed my palette to the purpose that I couldn’t actually style something delicate.

General, I appreciated this a lot that I slurped it down actually quick and obtained a stomachache; hey, it’s laborious to be a sweets fan with restricted tummy actual property. The consequence of this although is that the whipped cream didn’t have time to soften that a lot, so I used to be ingesting pure whipped cream via a straw by the tip. Whereas sucking up the whipped cream, I obtained the sprinkles, representing the “crunch” within the title.

I don’t know if it will have been a considerably totally different expertise if I consumed it extra slowly; possibly if the whipped cream had extra time to soften, I might have gotten the sprinkles within the drink, making for a extra “crunchy” deal with. Nonetheless, the Frozen Espresso itself is fairly dense; it’s not like ready to your whipped cream to soften right into a latte, the place it might simply disappear into the drink and blend with it. I might say that I’m going to purchase it once more to research this melting principle, however let’s be sincere: if I repurchase it, I’ll simply shove all of it into my face actually quick once more.

Whereas I personally may do with out the whipped topping and simply benefit from the drink itself, it is a pleasant indulgence. Even so, I nonetheless need the unique Espresso Coolatta again. Is that so flawed?
