Post Consumer Brands and Dunkin’ are brewing up two new cereals made with Dunkin’ coffee, set to roll out nationwide beginning in August. The two new Post cereals — Dunkin’ Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Latte — were inspired by Dunkin’ fans’ two favorite flavors and mark the first collaboration between Post and Dunkin’.
Post Dunkin’ Caramel Macchiato cereal is brought to life with crunchy cereal pieces and caramel-swirled marshmallows, creating the deliciously indulgent taste of the layered iced coffee beverage. Post Dunkin’ Mocha Latte cereal features a hint of chocolate and latte-swirled marshmallows in honor of its namesake espresso. The new cereals contain very small amounts of caffeine, roughly a 10th of a cup of coffee, so all can indulge in the rich coffee-forward experience.
“Coffee and cereal are the ultimate breakfast go-tos, ranking as the top two most consumed items to help people start their day,” says Josh Jans, Brand Manager of Cereal Partnerships at Post Consumer Brands. “Dunkin’ coffee is a daily ritual for Americans, and we’re excited to be partnering with them to indulge their fans’ coffee cravings. Getting the flavor right on our new cereals was a top priority, and we think we’ve nailed the rich, smooth and creamy taste.”
“We love delighting customers with surprising new ways to enjoy the great taste of Dunkin’. For our fans who already start their days with Dunkin’, this gives them another way to experience their favorite flavors,” adds Brian Gilbert, Vice President of Retail Business Development at Dunkin’. “The Post Cereals team has done an excellent job of paying homage to the Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Latte with these new cereals. We can’t wait to see how customers enjoy them.”
Coffee remains the beverage of choice in the United States, with nearly 65% of American adults reporting that they drink coffee every day. For the 14th year in a row, Dunkin’ was named the No. 1 brand for customer loyalty in the out-of-home coffee category, and for the 8th straight year, the Dunkin’ brand was also No. 1 in the packaged coffee category.
Consumed in nearly 90% of all U.S. households and popular with people of all ages, cereal is America’s No.1 favorite breakfast food. Today, it’s also increasingly enjoyed as a snack, lunch or dinner meal replacement, or as an ingredient in recipes.
