I tried all of the Dunkin' flavor shots and swirls so that you don't have to.

A Definitive Ranking Of Every Dunkin' Donuts Flavor Shot & Swirl — Yes, I Tried Every Single One

*Disclaimer: I ordered all of the drinks in a size small, with two creams and two pumps of the flavor swirl, and with the flavor shots I added two pumps of liquid cane sugar because they do not come sweetened.

11. Raspberry Shot

No. While the flavor itself did taste like raspberry, I do not believe raspberry belongs in coffee. If I were to get this flavor again at Dunkin', I would try it in an iced tea, but save your taste buds and don't get a raspberry shot in your coffee.

10. French Vanilla Swirl

While I have a lot of friends who's go-to coffee flavor is the French Vanilla Swirl, I am not a fan. It's sickly sweet and does not have the most authentic vanilla flavor.

9. Coconut Shot

Not bad, but not anything special either. I like coconut, but I am not a huge fan of coconut in my coffee. I don't have anything much to say about this flavor other than it tastes exactly as you would expect.

8. Blueberry Shot

Unlike the Raspberry Shot, I didn't hate the Blueberry Shot in my coffee. In fact, I may go as far to say I surprisingly liked it. It tasted as though I was pairing my coffee alongside one of Dunkin's delicious blueberry muffins, without having to eat the additional calories of the muffin.

7. Hazelnut Shot

This flavor is pretty tasty, but the Hazelnut Swirl is just a significantly better option, so I could not stand to put the shot version of this flavor any higher on the list. However, for those who do not like their coffee sweet, I would definitely recommend this flavor.

6. French Vanilla Shot

Unlike its flavor swirl counterpart, the French Vanilla Shot adds a vanilla flavor to your coffee without the medicinal taste the swirl provides. I would recommend adding the vanilla flavor shot to a beverage already sweetened with a flavor swirl for a fun flavor combo.

5. Mocha Swirl

Tasty. I do not really understand the point of a Mocha Swirl when you are putting it in coffee, because isn't mocha just chocolate and coffee? So why would I want to add more coffee flavor to my coffee?

Either way, this flavor just tastes like chocolate syrup in my coffee, so it's safe to say I am a fan. Bonus points if you mix Hazelnut and Mocha Swirls to create a delectable Nutella flavor in your coffee.

4. Toasted Almond Shot

This flavor may be a bit higher on the list due to the fact that I am biased towards anything almond-flavored. Dunkin' delivered with this flavor shot, as I can even taste the "toasted" element. This flavor is elevated when mixed with the french vanilla flavor shot.

3. Hazelnut Swirl

Delicious and hazelnutty, I sometimes switch from my classic Caramel Swirl order to get this flavor in a hot coffee come fall. While it still tastes amazing in an iced coffee, the Hazelnut Swirl tastes like Christmas in a cup when added to a warm beverage.

2. Butter Pecan Swirl

Many turn their nose up at this flavor, but Butter Pecan Swirl makes one's coffee taste like liquid ice cream. The Butter Pecan is a rich sweet and slightly nutty flavor that pairs so well with a creamy Dunkin' iced.

1. Caramel Swirl

Tried and true, the Caramel Swirl (unsurprisingly) takes first place. Everyone who I have introduced to this beverage continues to get it to this day, and it's no surprise.

The caramel flavor adds just enough of a sweet, creamy flavor that is not too overpowering and accompanies the coffee so well.

Overall, I plan to continue sticking with my classic order, a Medium Caramel Swirl Iced Coffee with just cream, but trying all the flavors will encourage me to maybe switch it up or mix two flavors together in the future.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
