What is Dunkin’s Pink Velvet Signature Latte?
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s Dunkin’s new coffee-fied spin on a Red Pink Velvet cake.
How is it?
Are you wondering what *Pink* Velvet is?!
Wonder no more, because, well, it’s Red Velvet.
This a Red Velvet cake-flavored latte, and that’s pretty much what it tastes like.
Honestly, despite the name and color, I was getting a sweet green tea vibe from the flavor at first. If you’ve ever had green tea ice cream at a sushi restaurant, it put me in mind of that.
As I sipped on, I realized that Dunkin’ actually did do an excellent job of capturing that ever so slight cocoa red velvet cake flavor.
There’s a hint of espresso, but this is a Dunkin’ latte, so the flavor is ultimately “milky cake.” Ask for an extra espresso shot. You know what you’re getting into when ordering a Dunkin’ latte, but man, it’s just so damn milky.
Despite nearly choking to death on the generous heaping of cocoa powder, I enjoyed the often-excessive whipped topping. The whip and chocolate drizzle paired with this particular flavor nicely.
Is there anything else you need to know?
Unlike the new Pink Velvet Macchiato, this latte doesn’t have hints of cream cheese frosting — at least according to the official website. So, if you want the full experience, maybe consider opting for the Macchiato.
If the cream cheese frosting was there, I don’t think I could have tasted it above all the skim milk anyway. So I’m kinda glad I didn’t because there’s enough dairy as is.
I was pleasantly surprised at the color of the latte. I assumed it was gonna be “Pink Velvet” in flavor, not necessarily appearance, but as you can see, it’s pretty fun and festive.
The color is great, the flavor’s middle of the pack, but it’s still worth a shot – just maybe get an extra shot of espresso.
