Two famous brands are teaming up for a coffee-based dessert. Dunkin’ will pour its bold, smooth espresso over Baskin-Robbins’ indulgent ice cream for the Affogato.
The new menu item is available exclusively at the brands’ combination stores nationwide. Both brands are subsidiaries of Dunkin’ Brands, which is headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts.
“We want to celebrate the superior quality of two Dunkin’ brand classics: Baskin-Robbins’ Vanilla Ice Cream and Dunkin’s new espresso,” says Tony Weisman, Dunkin' Chief Marketing Officer. “The beauty of adding the Affogato to our menu is that it’s a simple, two-ingredient dish that truly lets the ingredients shine.”
The Affogato is traditionally served with vanilla ice cream, but customers will have the option to substitute any flavor of ice cream in the treat. The Affogato’s suggested retail price is $3.49.
On Monday, March 18, customers can get a free sample of the Affogato at participating Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins combination stores nationwide between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
