What is it?
It’s the first new flavor added to the Dunkin’ Donuts line of ready-to-drink bottled iced coffee, joining Original, Espresso, Mocha, and French Vanilla. It’s available at Dunkin’ Donuts locations and other retailers. I believe it’s currently the only way to get a cookies & cream iced coffee from Dunkin’.
How is it?
Here’s the good news — it’s mostly mochalicious.
Here’s the bad news — it’s mostly mochalicious.
Unless you’re one of those people who have a special tongue that can detect the slightest nuances in flavors, you will think to yourself, “This is a tasty bottled mocha iced coffee.” But then you’ll remember it’s supposed to be “cookies & cream” and then you’ll wonder if your tongue is broken because you don’t taste anything that would make you think of cookies & cream.
But don’t worry, it’s not broken. For the most part, it doesn’t differentiate itself from any of the multiple “mocha” beverages I’ve caffeinated myself with over the years.
In the aftertaste, there’s a very slight cocoa flavor that, I guess, could be considered cookies & cream, but I want that in the duringtaste.
Is there anything else I need to know?
You know how some products say “Shake Well”? Well, shake this well because there’s a lot of sediment on the bottom of the bottle and it takes some tectonic plate-level shaking to make it disappear.
Also, there are a whopping 189 milligrams of sweet, sweet caffeine per bottle.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ Cookies & Cream Bottled Iced Coffee is a mochacceptable bottled iced coffee. But if you’re hoping for some C&C flavor in your coffee, you probably won’t taste it with this.
