Dunkin' Is Discontinuing Its Famous Coffee and Hot Chocolate Hybrid

As many fast-food fans know, not even fan-favorite food products are safe from being cut from the menu. Last summer, Burger King inexplicably retired its GOAT chicken sandwich line, the Ch'King, to the disappointment of many customers. And just last week, fast-food lovers received another dose of disappointment when Taco Bell announced it was pulling the Quesarito from menus in April. This week, Dunkin' has become the latest chain to discontinue a menu item with a devoted fan base.

The brand has officially confirmed that its stores are no longer offering the famous Dunkaccino, which blends coffee and hot chocolate flavors. This includes both the hot and frozen versions of the drink.

"As we focus on innovation and finding new ways to delight guests, we continually evolve our menu in an effort to deliver a fast, frictionless experience. The Dunkaccino is retired for now, but there's always the chance for its return in the future," a Dunkin' spokesperson said in a statement to

The retirement of the Dunkaccino marks the end of a decades-long run for the drink. According to a post on the official Dunkin' Facebook page, the brand first introduced the hot version of the menu item in 2000. The frozen version hasn't been around for quite as long, since it debuted in 2015, according to Reuters.

The Dunkaccino grew to become a favorite among many customers, but it also carved out a spot for itself in popular culture when it was featured in a fake but memorable commercial starring legendary actor Al Pacino in the 2011 film Jack and Jill.

Though Dunkin' has just now verified that it is no longer selling Dunkaccinos, customers have been claiming for months that the coffee and donut chain pulled the product from menus.

"It's a sad day today. I'm at a Dunkin' and I just learned that they discontinued the Dunkaccino…," a Twitter user wrote in a July 2022 post. "I just found out Dunkin' discontinued the Dunkaccino and I'm so sad," another user tweeted in September 2022.

Last year, a Frozen Dunkaccino fan was so surprised to find that the drink was suddenly unavailable that they asked the Dunkin' subreddit to confirm that it did, in fact, exist at one point. Additionally, an apparent leaked memo from Dunkin' showing a list of menu items that would be discontinued, including the Dunkaccino, began circulating on the chain's subreddit last year. Dunkin' was contacted for more details on exactly when the Dunkaccino was retired but did not immediately respond

Luckily for Dunkaccino fans, customers can still get their hands on the drink or something close to it with some creative ordering. Multiple Reddit users have suggested asking for a regular hot chocolate with a shot of espresso to mimic the Dunkaccino flavors.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
