Dunkin’ is renowned for its coffee, tea, and delicious donuts but now the chain is entering a new drink category by offering new bubble tea at select locations this summer! If you’re unfamiliar with bubble tea it’s essentially a tea-based beverage that is blended with milk or fruit juices. The drink is then filled with soft tapioca pearls (also known as boba or popping bubbles). The drink was invented in Taiwan in the ’80s and is now incredibly popular across the world.
Dunkin’s take on this tasty beverage is called Popping Bubble Ice Tea. It features a classic iced green tea and delicious strawberry popping bubbles and is being tested in select locations in Massachusetts. But that’s not all, according to MassLive, select locations will also be testing out Bubble Iced Coffee and Tea, Dunkin’ Refreshers, Sparkling Dunkin’ Refreshers, Summer Shandies, and Layered Iced Tea. These tasty beverages made their grand debut on July 1, 2020, and will be available through August 18. You can try these delicious offerings in five locations in Massachusetts including one in Haydenville, one in Northampton, and three in Westfield.
The popping bubbles “burst in your mouth for an explosion of strawberry sweetness with each sip,” Dunkin’ said in a statement to MassLive.
“Guests can also enjoy Popping Bubble Dunkin’ Refreshers, with strawberry popping bubbles added to Dunkin’ Refreshers’ combination of iced green tea, flavored fruit concentrate, and B vitamins for a boost of brightness and energy,” the statement also said. “Both are served with a special, extra-wide Bubble paper straw.”
ICYMI: The coffee chain also announced new Dunkin’ Refreshers iced beverages at participating restaurants nationwide and they’re perfect for summer! The new beverages are available in two delicious flavors including Strawberry Dragonfruit and Peach Passion Fruit and are made with iced green tea, flavored fruit concentrate, and B vitamins.
