    “The Charli” is available at Dunkin’ restaurants and to Order Ahead on the Dunkin’ App, giving guests across the country the chance to enjoy by name the Dunkin’ drink featured in countless Charli videos since she stepped into the spotlight last year. For an added perk for Dunkin’ fans who are loyal like Charli, today through September 4, DD Perks members will earn 100 bonus points, which is halfway to a free beverage reward, when they Order Ahead a medium size of “The Charli” on the Dunkin’ App.

    Dunkin’ is also giving fans an opportunity to enjoy “The Charli” with the star herself. The Charli x Dunkin’ contest launches September 9, inviting fans to post a photo on Instagram recreating an iconic Charli x Dunkin’ moment using #CharliXDunkinContest. On September 19, National Dance Day, five lucky winners will be selected for the exclusive opportunity to hang out with Charli virtually and get a few pointers from the digital superstar on how to make viral and engaging videos.

    Additionally, Charli is taking over Dunkin’s social channels in September, where fans can follow along all month long to catch exclusive Charli content, a special AR Instagram filter, stickers, and more. Dunkin’ will also give fans the chance to show off their best Charli-approved moves on TikTok to the beat of an original song, inspired by “The Charli.” 

    “Everyone knows that Charli runs on Dunkin’, and now Dunkin’ runs on Charli,” says Drayton Martin, Vice President, Brand Stewardship at Dunkin’. “This is the partnership fans have been rooting for since Charli first danced onto TikTok with her Dunkin’ Cold Brew in hand. Charli is one of our biggest fans and the feeling is mutual. We’re thrilled to finally make it official and make it easy for people to run on Dunkin’ just like Charli.”

    “The Charli” is just one way to enjoy Dunkin’s Cold Brew. An ultra-smooth, full-bodied coffee like no other, Dunkin’ steeps a special dark roast blend of ground coffee in cold water for 12 hours to slowly extract all the flavor into a velvety brew. Dunkin’s Cold Brew can be customized with a variety of flavors – including pumpkin, available now at Dunkin’ stores for a limited time through fall – as well as milk, cream, almondmilk, and oatmilk, Dunkin’s newest dairy alternative, now available nationwide.
