REVIEW: Dunkin’ Kiwi Watermelon Refresher

“Can I get a Kiwi Strawberry Refresher?”

That’s how I ordered Dunkin’s new Kiwi Watermelon Refresher in the drive-thru, thanks to my mouth, which has said kiwi strawberry or strawberry kiwi so many times that it’s apparently developed muscle memories for saying them. However, despite my mouthy mix-up, the person taking my order didn’t correct me, and I ended up with the correct verdant green-colored beverage.

As I sipped on the new Dunkin’ Refresher flavor, I realized that kiwi watermelon is a rare fruit combination in the beverage world. In fact, I couldn’t even recall a product that had the two-fruit combo. This curiosity led me to delve into my extensive photo library of 26,667 Spotted product images, but my search came up with zilch.

Dunkin’s Kiwi Straw…I mean, Kiwi Watermelon Refresher is available with either green tea or lemonade. I went with green tea because my body doesn’t function well without caffeine; hence, perhaps it’s the reason why I mouthed “kiwi strawberry” instead of “kiwi watermelon” since the beverage was my first kiss of caffeine of the day. Oh, for you lemonade fans, Dunkin’ announced that it’ll now be a permanent offering. So pucker up! A large size with green tea has 132 milligrams of caffeine, which is surprisingly high for something with green tea. I wish Arizona Green Tea had that much.

The grassy green color without a hint of red watermelon gives a clue as to how this beverage tastes. The dominant flavors are kiwi and green tea, and I’m not sure I ever noticed the watermelon. Although there’s a slight sourness, which could’ve come from the kiwi or watermelon. Even though it tasted like it was missing the melon flavor, I thought it still was a delicious and refreshing drink. A kiwi and green tea mix is quite good.

If you need a sweet, tasty beverage that color coordinates with Dunkin’s new Green Goddess Wrap or a pick-me-up that quenches your thirst, Dunkin’s Kiwi Watermelon Refresher is a great option.

  1. $6 for one drink… good Lord
    I don’t care how good it is… I’m not paying $6 for 20 ozs of sugar water.

    1. Marvo lives in Hawaii and everything is really expensive there. It’s probably only a buck in Alabama or wherever the heck you live.
