"With temperatures heating up across the country just in time for the first day of spring, many of our guests are celebrating with a refreshing iced coffee," says John Costello, chief global marketing and innovation officer at Dunkin' Brands. "With the addition of our limited time only caramel iced coffee flavors, guests have more options than ever to customize their favorite warm-weather beverage for that perfect pick-me-up."

Dunkin' Donuts is the No. 1 retailer of iced coffee in America. The brand has been at the forefront in developing an innovative process for brewing iced coffee, which has set the standard for the industry. The process, called double brewing, uses twice the amount of coffee when making the beverage to achieve consistent flavor and freshness that are never compromised at the expense of serving it cold. The result is a smooth, rich taste sensation of iced coffee that is never bitter or watered down.
