Every year around the end of August, my spidey senses start tingling, letting me know it’s almost pumpkin drink season.

Pumpkin-flavored coffee season is practically my favorite holiday season![1]

With so many drink options, I’ve gone ahead and narrowed my favorites down to 10 top choices.

These are all must-try drinks in my opinion, so let’s get started! 

Dunkin rolls out the fall menu at the end of August, and these signature pumpkin drinks are available until the winter menu becomes available (typically in November).

Dunkin Donuts is especially good at innovating by adding new items to the menu, so it’s not uncommon to see some slightly different fall flavors each season.

The 2023 fall menu had some tasty additions[2], and the same is expected for 2024.

As of right now, these are my favorite Dunkin Pumpkin drinks being offered this fall:

1. Pumpkin Swirl Frozen Coffee

This one changed my life, and that’s no joke.

The Dunkin Pumpkin Swirl Frozen Coffee is one (if not THE) best frozen coffee drink I’ve ever had.

It is a rather sweet drink with a whopping 89 grams of added sugar, but it’s a great treat! This beverage is made by adding Pumpkin Swirl to frozen coffee. 

I often ask for half the usual serving of Pumpkin Swirl for all the flavor with less sugar.

2. Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte

Pumpkin and chai are a fantastic match, melding spiciness with the sweet earthiness that pumpkins are known for.

The Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte covers a wide spectrum of flavors that complement each other seamlessly.  

It’s sweet, spicy, smooth, and creamy - and on ice, it’s perfect for warmer autumn days. 

This is my go-to if I am aiming for something other than coffee.

3. Green Tea Blood Orange Dunkin’ Refresher

Ok, so there's not actually any pumpkin swirl flavoring in this next drink, but it’s still worth mentioning.

The Green Tea Blood Orange Refresher has “fall” written all over it.

The citrus blood orange flavor is balanced out with subtle notes of fall spices, including cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

All of this goes nicely with the base ingredient of green tea.

Barista HQ Tip
  • Ask for whipped cream topping for a spicy orangecicle-like drink.

4. Coconut Milk Blood Orange Dunkin’ Refresher

Another non-pumpkin option this fall is the Coconut Milk Blood Orange Refresher.

It's exactly the same as the Green Tea Refresher, but made with a coconut milk base. 

I prefer this one to the Green Tea option, as the coconut milk adds a certain creamy, nutty taste that I feel balances out the sharpness of the blood-orange citrus.

Unlike pumpkin swirl drinks, this fall bev is a non-dairy Dunkin option that’s great for vegans.

5. Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spice Keurig Pods (K Cups)

Dunkin has made it so I never have to be too far from their delicious Pumpkin Spice coffee!

All I have to do is pop them into my Keurig machine, and in less than a minute I’m enjoying a cup while watching my favorite Halloween movies. 

Don't have a Keurig? No worries! 

It's also possible to buy pumpkin pie-flavored coffee grounds to use with a classic drip coffee maker.

6. Pumpkin Chai Latte

I’ve already mentioned Pumpkin Chai Latte over ice, but this beverage is just as good served hot.

It’s a sweet and creamy drink that’s perfect for sipping while I take 2 hours to pick out the perfect pumpkin.

Served hot, it just tastes a bit more ‘cozy’, really bringing out all the flavors. 

7. Signature Pumpkin Spice Latte

Dunkin Donuts Signature Pumpkin Spice Latte

I’m going to fall into cliches here and say that Dunkin's Signature Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite pumpkin drink on their menu. 

While this version of the PSL is sweeter than the one you’ll find at Starbucks, it’s just as good - and a lot cheaper!

The taste of bold espresso paired with the aroma of pumpkin is just chef’s kiss perfect. 

Topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and a dusting of cinnamon sugar, it tastes like dessert.

8. Iced Signature Pumpkin Spice Latte

The same drink described above is available in an iced version, which is perfect for hot fall days or for when your significant other cranks up the heat in the car on a cold fall day.  

Simply ask the barista to make the Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte iced.

The iced latte comes with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle, though I usually get mine without the drizzle as it’s quite sweet.  

9. Nutty Pumpkin Coffee (Hot Or Iced)

Dunkin Donuts Iced Nutty Pumpkin Coffee

I’ve been waiting for something like the Nutty Pumpkin Coffee to come out for years. 

It combines 2 of my favorite flavors: pumpkin and hazelnut. 

This drink uses DD's original blend with pumpkin spice swirl, hazelnut flavor shot, and cream. 

It can be ordered hot or as an iced coffee, and I’m going to give you my GOAT breakfast combo: try it with the Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich with a fried egg during Dunkin's breakfast hours.
Barista HQ Tip
  • Ask for it topped with Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam.

10. Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

Last but certainly not least on the Dunkin Pumpkin menu is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew.

In all my years of sipping coffee, this cold brew is the creamiest I’ve come across.

It’s blended with brown sugar and autumn-warming spices. It's then topped with smooth pumpkin cream cold foam, a cinnamon sugar dusting, and a caramel drizzle (optional).

Tips On Ordering Pumpkin Drinks At Dunkin Donuts

I typically order my drinks from the Dunkin Donuts app and pick them up in-store.

The app makes it easy to order and customize each drink to my exact preferences.[3]

Whether you order at the drive-thru, online, or via the app, here are a few more helpful tips for ordering Dunkin Pumpkin drinks:

  • The Dunkin Pumpkin menu is different at every location, so take a peek at the menu ahead of time to make sure the store has the drink available. No matter where you are, though, you'll be able to order top-sellers like the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew or the new Nutty Pumpkin Coffee.
  • While most drinks can be made with coconut or oat milk, the fall bevs containing pumpkin flavor cannot be made non-dairy as it's made from condensed milk.
  • I occasionally notice the pumpkin syrup starting to separate, so I’ll give my cup a quick swirl to combine the ingredients.
  • Seasonal drinks aren’t the only special items on the Dunkin fall menu. There are also plenty of food items, like the pumpkin muffin, glazed pumpkin cake, maple sugar bacon breakfast sandwich, pumpkin donut, or famous Pumpkin Munchkins (donut holes).[4]
  • Dunkin often offers deals on seasonal beverages, like a $3 Pumpkin Spice Latte or Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. My advice is to take advantage of these sweet deals!
