FAST FOOD NEWS: Dunkin’ Refreshers

News Dunkin Refreshers

Starbucks’ Refreshers have been around for eight years. Dunkin’s Refreshers have been around for significantly shorter than that.

The new cold drink line from Dunkin’ is made with iced green tea, flavored fruit concentrate, and B vitamins. They get their caffeine from green tea, which is unlike the Starbucks’ version that gets it from green coffee. There are two flavors to try — Strawberry Dragonfruit and Peach Passion Fruit.

A large Strawberry Dragonfruit has 170 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 20 milligrams of sodium, 39 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 37 grams of sugar, and 1 gram of protein.

A large Peach Passion Fruit has 180 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 20 milligrams of sodium, 43 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 39 grams of sugar, and 1 gram of protein.

To celebrate summer, Dunkin’ is offering medium Refreshers for $2 all day at participating locations nationwide through July 28.

If you’ve tried either one, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Dairy Queen Piñata Party Blizzard

News DQ Pinata Party Blizzard

Dairy Queen is celebrating its 80 years of existence with the Piñata Party Blizzard.

It features confetti frosting, cake pieces, and cake batter confetti stars blended into DQ’s vanilla soft serve. The treat is also finished with whipped topping and edible glitter.

I’m surprised DQ didn’t top the Blizzard with one of its Buster Bars that could represent the stick or bat used to swing at a pinata. I’m also disappointed DQ didn’t include it because I like it when the chain tops a Blizzard with a frozen novelty.

The Piñata Party Blizzard is available for a very limited time at participating DQ locations.

If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
