Dunkin Added a New Seasonal Beverage to Their Holiday Menu This Year
Dunkin is known for their season offerings, and they’ve added a new one to the menu this year: the “Sugarplum Macchiato.”
In a press release, the brand explained, “The Sugarplum Macchiato – the newest addition to our holiday espresso lineup – features the bright berry flavors of blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, and plum, accented by notes of vanilla, and rounded out with a sweet sugary finish. The combination of premium espresso, milk, and sugarplum flavor creates a whimsical, light-purple, layered drink that you’re sure to see popping up across social media this December.” They revealed that their culinary team has been designing the drink since late-2016.
In addition to the Sugarplum Macchiato, Dunkin is offering their classic holiday favorites, including the Signature Peppermint Mocha Latte, the Signature Gingerbread Latte, and the Chai Oatmilk Latte. They have also introduced a new sandwich as a breakfast item, called the Sourdough Breakfast Sandwich.
Christmas Day Is a Federal Holiday, but a Number of Businesses Will Be Open
Dunkin Donuts is not the only business keeping its doors open for customers on Christmas. In spite of the fact that Christmas Day is a federal holiday in the US, select stores will be open for popular chains and franchises including Starbucks, McDonald’s, IHOP, Waffle House, and 7-Eleven.
The stock market, post office, banks, and delivery services are among the businesses closed for Christmas Day, so that their employees can spend the day with their families and loved ones.
In addition to Christmas Day, there are 9 other holidays observed as federal holidays. They are New Year’s Day (January 1), Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4), Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran’s Day, and Thanksgiving Day.
Christmas Day is observed this year on Friday, December 25.
