February 20, 2020 Update: 

Dunkin' announced today that it will be introducing new menu items on February 26. The company will be offering hot, iced and frozen matcha lattes as well as a new Protein Muffin. The matcha lattes were a fan-favorite when they were introduced for a limited time in select markets and are made with Japanese matcha green tea powder and your choice of milk. They will become a permanent part of the menu at participating Dunkin' restaurants.

The Protein Muffin packs a whopping 16 grams and is made with blueberries, cranberries and sunflower and pumpkin seeds. The muffins will be available for a limited time at participating Dunkin' restaurants.

Dunkin' has been busy bringing all sorts of new items to its menu. From low-carb breakfast bowls to plant-based sandwiches, Dunkin' is now much more than just a place to get a great donut (which is likely why they rebranded to just Dunkin' last year). Rumor has it we're being blessed with more exciting new menu items later this month—matcha lattes and Coolattas, protein muffins and "snacking bacon!"

@CandyHunting, an Instagram account that brings "junk food news" to its 200,000 followers, shared a photo that appears to be a Dunkin' advertisement for these new menu items. The possible ad also shows that these menu items will be available for a limited time from February 26-March 31.

We reached out to Dunkin' to see if these new products would actually come our way this month. A spokesperson for the brand said, "Although we're unable to confirm any new Dunkin' menu items at this time, we'll be in touch soon when we have exciting news to share about our spring menu."

While we can't guarantee you'll be able to order a matcha latte with a side of "snacking bacon" by the end of the month, @CandyHunting seems to be a reputable source, sharing product launches that have all become news—like the return of Dunkaroos and a line of sunflower butter-infused ice creams from Ben & Jerry's. We will keep you updated on the latest as we learn more. But there's no need to wait to enjoy these items—try our Matcha Green Tea Latte and Healthy Blueberry Muffin recipes at home.
