When Dunkin’ Donuts announced they were getting rid of their beloved Coffee Coolatta, fans of the cold beverage weren’t happy. But the chain said they were replacing it with something better and now their new frozen coffee is finally here, just in time for summer.  The frozen coffee is a permanent menu item, so you don’t have to worry about getting hooked and then having it disappear from Dunkin’ shops. It’s made with “an extract of 100% Arabica coffee,” blended with dairy and ice. And they say it’s a little on the sweet side. You can also customize it with flavor swirls and shots, as well as choose different kinds of dairy to make it your own.  But the best part about the frozen coffee is that they’re giving away free samples of it today at participating Dunkin Donuts locations from 10am this morning until 2pm this afternoon. So swing my and try it out for free. This could be your new drink of the summer!
