24. Hand-Crafted Espresso — Dunkin’ Donuts

Dunkin’, America’s favorite coffee shop, has been diversifying their menu items over the years, which includes embracing holiday-oriented drinks.

This year, Dunkin’ is rolling out their espresso drinks, which come in either hot or cold. Now, drinking an espresso from Dunkin’ may have some people a little bit worried, but, most of their new menu items have been hits, so why not this one?

Dunkin’s new espresso drinks rolled out right in time for the holidays, and unlike Starbucks, which limits you on what flavors you can get with your coffee, Dunkin’ has a wealth of flavor shots that will give your hand-crafted espresso an added kick of holiday cheer.

That, in my opinion, is the true beauty of Dunkin’s drinks. Those flavor shots are life, and it’s something that, surprisingly, a lot of people overlook, but shouldn’t. I’ll take that holiday espresso with three-pumps of the vanilla bean any day, and any time. Why Vanilla bean? Because it’s the best freakin’ bean on Earth, that’s why.

Sadly, Dunkin’ doesn’t have the vanilla bean flavor shot anymore, and that not only makes me sad, but it makes the whole world sad. Anyway, having a nice, warm espresso will make those cold winter mornings a bit tolerable.

Besides, who doesn’t like coffee at the coldest time of the year?
