Dunkin' has officially unveiled a boozy spin on fan-favorite drinks that will soon be available in Massachusetts and elsewhere.
The Dunkin' Spiked line of iced coffees and iced teas was announced by the Canton-based company on Monday.
According to a website for the new brand, Dunkin' Spiked Iced Tea products are shipping now and will be available in grocery and package stores in late August. Meanwhile, Dunkin' Spiked Iced Coffee products will be available starting in September.
The Dunkin' Spiked website also states the products are launching in Massachusetts and 11 other states: Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Vermont.
Dunkin' Spiked Iced Tea, the brand's first venture into the hard tea category, has 5% alcohol by volume and comes in the following four flavors: slightly sweet, half & half, strawberry dragonfruit refresher and mango pineapple refresher. The iced teas can be purchased as 12-can mix packs (three 12 oz. cans of each flavor, six-packs of 12 oz. slightly sweet-flavored cans and single 19.2 oz. slightly sweet-flavored cans).
Dunkin' Spiked Iced Coffee has 6% alcohol by volume and comes in the following flavors: original, caramel, mocha and vanilla. The iced coffees can be purchased as 12-can mix packs (three 12 oz. cans of each flavor), four-packs of 12 oz. original-flavored cans and single 19.2 oz. original-flavored cans. For years, Dunkin' and Boston-based Harpoon Brewery have partnered on a series of beers incorporating coffee flavors.
Dunkin' did note Monday, however, that the Dunkin' Spiked line of products will not be available at Dunkin' restaurant locations. To locate stores that carry Dunkin' Spiked products, consumers can use the product finder on the Dunkin' Spiked website.
According to a public registry from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, the agency approved at least three label applications for malt beverages under the name Dunkin' Spiked. Records indicate the applications were approved in May. Domain registration for the website was created in April.BOSTON —
