The other day I was scrolling on TikTok and saw something called the ‘Charli Cold Foam’.

It looked delicious, so I had to try it out for myself! But what is it, how long is it available, and how can it be ordered?

I don't want anyone to miss out, so I’m going to to give the full Charli cold foam breakdown in this article.  

The Dunkin' Donuts Charli cold drink is a new twist on the 'Charli drink,' which was released during Charli D’Amelio’s collab with Dunkin’ Donuts in 2020.

Charli D’Amelio is a TikTok superstar with over 140 million followers, and she's become a global sensation for her videos. 

Dunkin' teamed up with her to recreate her favorite drink growing up, the Charli drink (one of the other Dunkin' iced beverages inspired by Charli D’Amelio), which is essentially a mixture of cold brew coffee, caramel, and dairy-free milk.

It’s smooth, refreshing, and sweet iced coffee drink with a big hit of caffeine and a little bit of spice from the cinnamon. 

The fact that The Charli is associated with Charli D’Amelio means that it’s more popular with younger drinkers.

I won’t deny the fact that it’s delicious, though! This Dunkin drink may not be for the coffee purists, but it is a real treat.

How It Tastes

There are no two ways about it; the Charli cold foam is a strong coffee.

It uses the signature Dunkin' Donuts cold brew as a base with over 260mg of caffeine per serving. 

The sweet caramel helps to round out some of the bitterness of the cold brew coffee, and the sweet cold foam creates a luxuriously smooth creaminess.

The vanilla sweet cold foam blends into the cold brew coffee as I drink it and gives a light but sweet taste with every sip.  

It's a rich drink, but it’s can easily be made dairy-free, which is a plus for many. Just trade out the whole milk for a plant-based alternative. 

Dunkin' offers coconut, almond, or soy.

The energy boost from the caffeine with the sweet taste from the other ingredients make it the best of both worlds, with the slightly spicy cinnamon rounding it off nicely.

How Many Calories Does Charli Cold Foam Have? 

The Charli D'Amelio inspired cold brew sweet cold foam drink tastes amazing, but what's actually in it?

It’s a variation of the regular cold brew, which doesn’t have many calories on its own. 

However, 3 pumps of caramel syrup and dairy-free milk are then added, giving it a sugary sweetness which makes it tastier for those who may avoid traditional coffee. 

Next, vanilla, sugar, and dairy-free milk are blended to create a cold foam which is then layered on top of the mixture.  

It's then topped with cinnamon sugar topping for some extra earthy sweetness.   

With 250 calories and 52 grams of sugar in a medium sized drink, it should be enjoyed sparingly.

With over 260mg of caffeine from the cold brew, it’s also nearing the daily caffeine recommendation.

How To Order Charli Cold Foam Drinks At Dunkin Donuts? 

The Charli cold foam cold brew is available at most Dunkin' Donuts but is a speciality drink which means that it isn't available all year round and may not be on the regular Dunkin' menu. 

However, just because this cold brew variation isn't on the menu doesn't mean you can't order it because Dunkin' Donuts will have the ingredients all year round. 

Just ask for a medium cold brew coffee with 3 pumps of caramel syrup (a caramel swirl), dairy or non-dairy milk, topped with velvety sweet cold foam and cinnamon sugar topping. 

It can also be ordered through the Dunkin' App.

How Much It Costs

The Charli Cold Brew Sweet Cold Foam comes in a Small size (16 ounces), Medium size (24 ounces), or Large size (32 ounces). 

The Medium cold brew Dunkin' drink will cost you $3, so this Charli cold brew sweet cold foam drink is pretty good value considering all the caffeine in it.

How To Make Dunkin Donuts Charli Cold Foam Drinks At Home? 

Not everyone can make it to a Dunkin' Donuts, and it can be expensive to get coffees from there too often.

The good news is that I can make my own Charli cold foam at home really easily, so I can indulge whenever I want. 

To make a medium size version of this signature drink at home, you'll need: 

  • 1 cup of cold brew coffee (this is usually easiest to buy from the store) 
  • 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon of caramel syrup 
  • ¼ cup of dairy-free milk  
  • Ice 
  • Half and half  
  • Sugar 
  • Cinnamon sugar 
  • You’ll also need a milk frother to create the foam 

You’ll then need to follow these steps: 

  • 1
    Drizzle the caramel sauce around the inside of the cup. 
  • 2
    Add the ice to the cup  
  • 3
    Pour in the cold brew and leave for a minute while making the foam 
  • 4
    Mix sugar with the half and half and stir together 
  • 5
    Froth up the sugar and half and half until it’s foamy 
  • 6
    Layer this on top of the cold brew mix; this is the sweet cold foam and it should just sit on top of the drink.
  • 7
    Add the cinnamon sugar powder to the top of the sweet cold foam 
  • 8
    Drizzle some extra caramel syrup on top
