If you’re in West Palm Beach or Miami, Florida or the northeast region of the country, keep an eye out next week for new Dunkin’ Energy Punch from Dunkin’ Donuts. Coming Monday, March 27th, Dunkin’ Energy Punch Powered by Monster Energy features a combination of one can of Monster Energy and classic Dunkin’ Coolatta flavors Blue Raspberry or Strawberry, served over ice. Only the aforementioned markets will carry the new drink for the time being, but we’ll keep you posted if/when it gets a wider release. I recently taste-tested the Strawberry version shown below at Dunkin’ Donuts media day and for whatever reason it stuck with me more than anything else. It’s kind of reminiscent of Taco Bell’s partnership with Mtn Dew, but kicked up with a lot more caffeine.
