Milk Bar has earned a reputation as being the home of innovative culinary creations such as crack pie, cereal milk ice cream, and birthday cake truffles.

Now, the iconic bakery chain is looking to take what makes these foods delicious and apply that to its beverages. The company has begun offering Crack Pie, Cereal Milk, and B’Day Cake as latte flavors at locations in New York City, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, and Toronto, according to the company founded by two-time James Beard Award winning pastry chef Christina Tosi.

The new lattes can be purchased in three different sizes, ranging from 8 to 16 ounces. A description of each of the flavors available:

  • Crack Pie — Based on the crack pie filling, it features dark brown sugar, corn ganache, espresso, and steamed milk. 
  • Cereal Milk — This flavor uses steamed cereal milk instead of regular milk to re-create the taste at the bottom of a cereal bowl.
  • B’Day — This flavor is made with B’day crumbs, “B’day syrup,” espresso, steamed Cereal Milk, salt and yellow cake flavor and is topped with sprinkles.

In addition to the new latte offering, Milk Bar added a new flavor of its popular MilkQuakes. The Choco-Pretzel-Dulce Quake features chocolate pretzel soft serve blended with butterscotch chips, pretzels, dulce de leche sauce, and fudge.

The bakery-flavored drink trend has even more company, now that Dunkin’ Donuts has announced that it has partnered with the Girl Scouts for a special-edition line of coffees inspired by these iconic cookies. The trio of flavors includes Thin Mints, Coconut Caramel, and Peanut Butter Cookie.

The new coffee flavors were unveiled during a Facebook Live event from Savannah, Georgia, the birthplace of Girl Scouts of the USA, in late February.

The flavors include Thin Mints (a combination of cool mint and chocolate), Coconut Caramel (toasted coconut paired with creamy caramel), and Peanut Butter Cookie (Dunkin’ Donuts’ first-ever coffee featuring the flavor of peanut butter without allergens).

All three flavors are available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations nationwide until May. The launch coincided with the National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2018.

This year, Girl Scouts is celebrating the next century of female entrepreneurs. In that spirit, Dunkin’ Donuts invited local troops to sell Girl Scout Cookies at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants on weekends between Feb. 24 and March 18.

“Our guests have come to expect and enjoy fun, innovative flavors from us, and what could elicit more smiles than the iconic taste of Girl Scout Cookie inspired flavors in your favorite Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? It’s a natural fit,” says Patty Healy, senior director of integrated marketing, Dunkin’ Donuts.
