As the holidays roll around, I love getting into the Christmas spirit with a cozy cup of Dunkin'.

This year, I challenged myself to try every one of Dunkin's holiday themed drinks so you don't have to.

Read on to discover your new fave Dunkin' Christmas drinks - let's dive in!

1. Peppermint Mocha Signature Latte

I'm starting off my seasonal drinks list with the ultimate Christmas classic AKA the Peppermint Latte.

I'm a peppermint drink fiend when it's chilly, but hate the fake taste of some peppermint lattes - this is the real deal!

Each sip of this Peppermint Mocha Signature Latte gives such a rich peppermint and creamy milk chocolate profile, which always leaves me ready and raring to embrace the holiday spirit.  

The Peppermint Mocha Latte is a classic on their holiday menu and a real treat for those cold winter months! 

Tips For An Even Tastier Drink
  • Prefer your fresh peppermint cold? Ask for an Iced Peppermint Latte.

2. Toasted White Chocolate Signature Latte

The Toasted White Chocolate Signature Latte will brighten up the gloomiest of days.  I just can't get enough!

This drink works well hot or over ice as the white mocha and cold milk blend together in sweet harmony.

The toasted element comes from the cinnamon, which subtly adds spice to each sip. Even without whipped cream, the cinnamon isn't too overpowering - just the perfect level for cozy winter warmth.

I tried it for the first time this holiday season and thoroughly enjoyed the combo of smooth holiday blend coffee with the sweet taste of white chocolate.    

Tips For An Even Tastier Drink
  • Ask for extra caramel drizzle on top for an even sweeter finish.

3. Chai Oatmilk Latte

Chai Oatmilk Lattes are my year-round go-to, but there is something extra special about them during the holidays.

Not only are they a tasty change of pace, but they have all the flavors of the Christmas season rolled into one! Combining them with creamy oat milk reminds me of spiced oat cookies, but in drink form.

The Chai Oatmilk Latte has a sweet, nutty mix and spiced herbal base that really bring those cozy winter vibes.

So if you're not one for tradition, spice up your holidays with a hot or cold Chai Oat Milk Latte! 

4. White Mocha Hot Chocolate

A real mood-setter for the Christmas season, the White Mocha Hot Chocolate always makes me feel like I'm sitting in front of the fire on Christmas morning. 

It’s super sweet, which is perfect for those who enjoy their Christmas with lots of chocolate, and you can even get extra cocoa powder dusted on top.

I love ordering the White Mocha Hot Chocolate for my nieces and nephews - I just make sure not to order it after dark to avoid them turning into over-sugared gremlins!

5. Holiday Eggnog Signature Latte 

Dunkin Donuts Holiday Eggnog Signature Latte

I'm a huge fan of eggnog to the point where I wish I could have a cup of it on me at all times come Christmas. However, it's not exactly the best workday drink.

Enter the Holiday Eggnog Signature Latte.

This caffeinated eggnog blend is sweeter and bolder than I initially expected, and the eggnog taste is not that strong. Even my brother, a known eggnog hater, loved it!

If you’re a fan of eggnog and want to indulge in a classic holiday tradition, then the Eggnog Latte will be one of the best seasonal drinks for you. 

6. Toasted Gingerbread Signature Latte 

Dunkin Donuts Iced Toasted Gingerbread Signature Latte

Nothing gets me in the mood for the holiday season more than gingerbread - it’s a staple seasonal drink flavor that really sets up the holiday cheer. 

Dunkin's Toasted Gingerbread Signature latte tastes exactly like dunking a gingerbread man into a marshmallow topped coffee - exactly my kind of drink!

With classic flavors of cinnamon, caramel, coffee, and marshmallow, this drink gives you a sweet mix of everything seasonal. 

I prefer my Gingerbread Latte on ice with oat milk, but the hot version is extra cozy!

7. Holiday Blend Coffee

The Dunkin' Donuts new Holiday Blend Coffee is a great mix for my daily espresso needs! 

The medium Holiday Blend coffee has a medium roast with a mix of Colombian and Ethiopian coffees to create a smooth and bold roast. It has notes of dried fruit and sweet molasses with a chocolatey undertone.  

It was love at first sip! I've never added packaged coffee to my cart so fast.

Whether ordering in store, or as a packaged coffee, over ice or hot, this blend is a real treat for your daily dose of caffeine.  

Tips For An Even Tastier Drink
  • If you want this blend all year round, Dunkin' sells this as a packaged coffee, too! So you can drink Dunkin's limited batch series anytime and get into the Christmas spirit.

Dunkin' Donuts Vs Starbucks Holiday Drinks

The two coffee chains offer unique and vastly different drinks all year round. They're both recognizable and carry an incredible feeling of home and nostalgia for many people.

Offers: With Starbucks being a bigger chain, there's just simply more on offer when it comes to seasonal drinks. Don't be fooled; that isn't necessarily a good thing.  

Taste: Starbucks' seasonal peppermint mocha signature latte reigned supreme; it just had a better edge and more to offer. But the Dunkin' seasonal toasted gingerbread latte took the cake over Starbucks; it has a better blend of sweet and seasonal flavor notes that ignite anyone's tastebuds.  

Flavors: The key difference between the coffee chain brands is the flavors - Starbucks offers fewer sweet options in their holiday lineup that some people may find better suited to their tastes. 

Dunkin' Donuts has sweeter options and uses ingredients like their mocha drizzle and sweet molasses which cater to a sweeter tooth. 

Signature Offers: There’s of course the signature Christmas cup that comes with Starbucks drinks, but Dunkin' has one too, so either will suit your aesthetic.  

Price Comparison: A Dunkin' menut item is typically at least a dollar cheaper than its Starbucks counterpart. For example, a large latte at Dunkin' will cost around $2.49 but Starbucks charges $4.15 for a Venti. 

If you want a dozen donuts, then Dunkin' is the place to go, but if you want seasonal drinks you're probably best with Starbucks.

Whichever side you're on, you'll have wide access to many holiday-themed treats to get you in the mood for the festive season, and they both offer seasonal packaged coffee so you can make amazing seasonal drinks at home!
