As millions of people show support for Girl Scout entrepreneurs this season by buying boxes of their beloved cookies, Dunkin’ Donuts is delivering the delicious taste of Girl Scout Cookies™ in its signature coffee and beverages for the first time. Dunkin’ Donuts, under a licensing agreement with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), introduces a trio of new coffee flavors inspired by iconic Girl Scout Cookie varieties: Thin Mints®, Coconut Caramel and Peanut Butter Cookie. All three flavors will be available by Monday, February 26, and served at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide through May for a sweet spring.
New Thin Mints flavored coffee features the classic cookie’s combination of cool mint and decadent chocolate, while new Coconut Caramel flavored coffee treats guests to the taste of toasted coconut together with creamy caramel. With new Peanut Butter Cookie flavored coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts has crafted its first-ever coffee featuring the flavor of mouth-watering peanut butter (without allergens). All of Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee flavors inspired by Girl Scout Cookies are available in the brand’s full lineup of hot or iced coffees, lattes, macchiatos, frozen coffee, and frozen chocolate.
Dunkin’ Donuts unveiled the new coffee flavors today in a special Facebook Live event from Savannah, Georgia, the birthplace of Girl Scouts of the USA, which can be accessed here.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ launch of its Girl Scout Cookie inspired flavored coffee beverages coincides with National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2018, February 23 – 25. This season, Girl Scouts is celebrating the next century of female entrepreneurs. To help power amazing experiences for girls, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees at select locations across the country will open their doors to cookie entrepreneurs, inviting local troops to sell Girl Scout Cookies at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants on weekends February 24 – March 18. Participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations can be found at www.girlscoutcookies.org as well as the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices.
Girl Scouts have been selling cookies for more than a century, unlocking their G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ potential by building essential entrepreneurial and business skills imperative to leadership and future success. Over one million Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, and 100% of the net revenue from cookie sales benefits the girls and their local council. Councils depend on cookie earnings to run their programming, which supports incredible experiences for girls, and girls decide how to invest their troop’s portion of the earnings in impactful community projects and personal enrichment opportunities.
According to Patty Healy, Senior Director of Integrated Marketing, Dunkin’ Donuts, “Our guests have come to expect and enjoy fun, innovative flavors from us, and what could elicit more smiles than the iconic taste of Girl Scout Cookie inspired flavors in your favorite Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? It’s a natural fit and a powerful combination. We are especially proud that our franchisees, many of whom are small business owners themselves, are committed to fueling the entrepreneurial spirit of the Girl Scouts by welcoming local troops to sell cookies at their restaurants.”
“GSUSA is pleased to work with Dunkin’ Donuts to showcase the power of the Girl Scout Cookie Program,” said Barry Horowitz, GSUSA Chief Revenue Officer. “Not only do girls learn important business and entrepreneurial skills, but they put their earnings toward impactful community projects and leadership experiences—so we are grateful to Dunkin’ Donuts for opening up their restaurants around the country to our cookie entrepreneurs!”
Dunkin’ Donuts is serving the new flavors under a license from Girl Scouts of the USA.
