Cookies ‘N Cream Cone has vanilla flavored ice cream with chocolate creme filled cookie crumbles, dark chocolate-coated chocolate cone pieces, and a chocolate fudge swirl. (Spotted by Robbie at H-E-B.)
It combines Dunkin’s Iced Matcha Latte with pumps of its blueberry flavor shots. Pimple dimple simple.
How is it?
I enjoy Dunkin’s Iced Matcha Latte, which I reviewed when it debuted. And, to be honest, I thought adding some blueberry flavor wouldn’t make that much of a difference. But holy moly, while it just lingers in the background, the fruitiness totally enhances the sweet matcha. The blueberry flavor makes this taste as if it has a blueberry muffin essence.
It’s a simple addition, but the flavor shots make an already tasty drink even better. If you love the original, then definitely give this flavored version a try.
Although, now that I think about it, maybe my mind is blown a little because all the matcha lattes I’ve ever had have been just matcha with no other flavor. So perhaps the slight change is impressing me more than it should. Still, this is a mighty tasty beverage.
Anything else you need to know?
After drinking this, I wondered if there has ever been a Blueberry Matcha Kit Kat in Japan. I did a lazy Google search and found nothing. Maybe it’s time to get on that, Nestle Japan. Or if you’re feel courageous, Hershey’s, perhaps you should make it here.
Also, this drink makes me want to bake some blueberry matcha muffins. Although, I’m not very good at baking, which was proven when I did not add eggs to brownie batter. So maybe I’ll find a local bakery that does make them.
Of course, since it’s been possible to customize the matcha latte since it was introduced, I could’ve been getting this drink all this time. Speaking of customization, I got mine with whole milk, but you can get it with any dairy or non-dairy milk Dunkin’ offers.
If you’re not into super sugary matcha drinks and prefer the green tea’s bitterness, then this is not for you. As for myself, I think I may get all future Dunkin’ Iced Matcha Lattes this way.
