Maple, Caramel, and Pumpkin Ring in Dunkin' Fall

Dunkin' Donuts introduced a variety of foods and beverages perfect for enjoying a brisk October day and all of the favorite fall activities. Dunkin' Donuts' new and returning seasonal favorites joining the fall lineup include the Maple Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich and the Caramel Apple Latte, as well as pumpkin favorites and seasonal Munchkins donut hole treats.

The seasonal food and beverages will be available for a limited time at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout the country.

The Maple Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich combines a hearty scrambled egg with a sweet maple-flavored sausage patty, topped with a slice of melted white cheddar cheese. Served warm on a freshly baked croissant, the Maple Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich is the perfect complement to Dunkin' Donuts' Original Blend and Dunkin' Decaf coffee. It is available at the suggested retail price of $2.99.

The Caramel Apple Latte (offered in select markets only; not available in New England) features a combination of red and green apple flavors with a hint of caramel. The Caramel Apple Latte is available in select markets throughout the country for the suggested retail price of $1.99 for a small 10-ounce hot beverage.

Fall Munchkins are donut hole treats dipped in autumn nonpareils, and are available for the suggested retail price of $4.79 for a 25-count box or $6.99 for a 50-count box.

Pumpkin snacks and beverages will remain available at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants for a limited time. Dunkin' Donuts' autumn array includes hot or iced pumpkin coffees and lattes, a pumpkin muffin, and pumpkin donut.

Later this month, Dunkin' Donuts will unveil “spooktacular” Halloween treats guaranteed to make trick-or-treating extra sweet, including a "Boston Scream" Donut and the trick-or-treat bag, which will be offered as a free gift with the purchase of a 50-count box of Munchkins donut hole treats or a dozen donuts.

"Our new and returning fall menu items capture the flavor of the season in a fresh, affordable and delicious way," says Dunkin' Brands' executive chef Stan Frankenthaler. "From our popular Maple Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich to the new Caramel Apple Latte, our guests can celebrate fall to the fullest and keep themselves running any of time of day all throughout October."
