Top 5 Iced Coffees from Dunkin Donuts

Top 5 Iced Coffees from Dunkin Donuts

Coffee: the key to a student's success.

I was never a fan of coffee growing up. My parents drank multiple cups in the morning and the smell bothered me; not only that, I hated the bitter taste. That flipped when I entered high school and realized that I needed that little extra boost. I began drinking iced coffee and slowly fell in love with it. Nothing got me through high school like my trips to Dunkin on the way to school. When I was busy volunteering at my local elementary school, nothing helped me deal with hyperactive fourth graders like my iced coffee. Here are my favorite coffees.

1. Peppermint Mocha.

You know the holiday season is approaching when peppermint mocha is back on the menu at Dunkin Donuts. The worst day of the year is when this amazing drink is off the shelves, not only because you have to wait 12 months for another, but also because it means the holiday season has come to a close.


2. Pumpkin.

Pumpkin is the first sign of fall. I know I speak for many when I say I am always excited to see this classic fall beverage back at Dunkin. They have created many varieties of this beverage including pumpkin mocha and pumpkin salted caramel; however, nothing beats a pumpkin iced coffee in hand as you participate in apple picking, pumpkin picking, and any other fall activity you come across!

3. Dark Chocolate Mocha.

Dark chocolate mocha was the first iced coffee that I ever tried. I fell in love immediately. This drink has not been available at Dunkin since 2013 and I was very sad when it left. This creamy beverage was definitely my favorite and I was very sad to find out that it was a specialty for the season. I would definitely like to see this back at Dunkin Donuts sometime soon!

4. Blueberry.

Whenever I tell someone that I am drinking blueberry coffee, they give me the strangest look. Honestly, if someone told me a year ago that they were drinking blueberry coffee, I would give them an equally as strange look. A friend of mine suggested it and I figured I would give it a shot. Dunkin’s blueberry coffee smells and tastes amazing. As soon as you take a sip, you are greeted with an amazing blueberry flavor. The best part is that it’s available all year round!

5. Cold Brew.

Dunkin Donuts just recently rolled out cold brew coffee and it is amazing. This coffee can be mixed with any flavor. This creamy coffee is fantastic because it is not watered down like regular iced coffee. This coffee tastes stronger and smoother than regular coffee.

Iced coffee got me through high school; everything from early morning club meetings to AP exams. Now that I am in college, I unfortunately do not have access to a Dunkin Donuts as easily as before. I find that I am desperate enough for coffee that I will drink whatever is available in the dining hall. As soon as I am off campus, Dunkin Donuts is always stop number one!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

A Saturday In The Life Of A Freshman

Welcome to Darty Season

Have you ever had a more stereotypical freshman's Saturday than my friends Maddie, Lauren, Jocelyn, Meg, Barbara, and I? Keep reading to see a packed day in darty season from a freshman's point of view.

9:00 am

My alarm that I meant to set for the day before goes off. I begrudgingly roll over, and turn it off, falling back asleep.

10:00 am

I finally wake up, roll, or jump, out of my lofted bed, grab my laptop, and do a little studying for my exam on Monday -- there's no time for that later today, so I've gotta get some of it done then.

10:30 am

Shower. Pick an outfit. Brush teeth. Makeup. Pack a bag of extra clothes.

12:00 pm

I walked downstairs to the lobby to meet two of my friends who were gonna walk with me to Tutweiler Hall.

12:30 pm

My friends and I at the fundraising event

Elizabeth Gainey

We arrived at Tut, met our friends, then left to go to a philantropy event at Sig Tau sponsored by B+, an organization that assists the families of children diagnosed with cancer. Their burgers and fries were top notch.

2:30 pm

The Hackberrys, a band comprised of UA students, played the event. We left to go back to Tut after a few songs.

3:00 pm

We finally got back at Tut, changed clothes, listened to music, hung out.

3:45 pm

We *finally* left for Pike (sorry mom!). You know how long it takes five girls to get ready, so don't act so shocked.

4:10 pm

Myself, super escstatic about having to wait in a mob of people to get in

Elizabeth Gainey

Have you ever arrived to a frat when it's at capacity? Yeah, around 100 screaming girls were shoving to get into the darty. It was an experience like no other, but eventually, we made our way in. It may have been in groups of two, and we definitely lost a girl to the crowd (she's fine!), but we made it.

6:30 pm

After dancing on an elevated surface or two, walking in circles around their courtyard, watching an active climb into a basketball goal, and waiting in a way-too-long line for the restroom, we decided to go back to Tut.

6:45 pm

We definitely made a stop to grab a snack or two on our way back to Tut.

7:15 pm

After realizing that none of the parties at night were gonna start until around 10 pm, we decided to watch some random YouTube videos and Netflix to pass the time. There was also another stop for snacks at the infamous Julia's on the first floor of Tut.

9:30 pm

My third outfit change of the day. We decided to leave Tut for frat row for the third time that day, too. I wanna say my total steps for the day was around 17,000? It was a lot.

10:00 pm

Best view in the house (Myself on the left, Maddie on the right)

We got to Sigma Pi as the party was just starting to build up. Their band room was filled within the hour, and they had a pretty good DJ. Although the active yelling at me and my friend to get off the stage was no fun.

11:00 pm

Have you ever faked out a frat boy with a soccer ball? Well, now I can say I have.

12:00 am

After someone pulled the fire alarm on Sigma Pi, we decided to walk back to Tut.

12:45 am

My two Ragecrest friends and I decided to take the bus back because, after the stretch to and from frat row three times, we had no more walking left in us.

1:00 am

Canes chicken tenders. Enough said. It's the way to end a night.

It was a very packed, but very fun and eventful day. We pretty much hit all the spring semester stereotypes: walking along and to frat row, going to a darty, going to a frat party, going to a philanthropy event, and more. As crazy as the day was, I highly recommend trying a day like this once because you won't forget it!
