Want to get your kids something to drink at Dunkin’? Here’s a list of kid-friendly drinks, including customized options, they’ll love!
Tips for Ordering Kids Drinks
Small drink sizes
The smallest drink size is a regular small (10 ounce) for hot drinks and small (12 ounces) for cold drinks. There are no “kids-sized” drinks at Dunkin’.
Add ice to cool down hot drinks
When you order a hot drink for kids, you can ask for ice cubes to be added in the drink to cool it down quickly.
Adjust the amount of syrup
Ask for fewer pumps of syrup if you want the drink to be less sweet. Instead of the usual 2 pumps of caramel swirl syrup in a Caramel Swirl Frozen Chocolate, ask for it to be made with just 1 pump.
Refreshers contain a lot of caffeine
Dunkin’ Refreshers and Coconut Refreshers are made with green tea extract and there’s about 66 mg of caffeine in a small. That’s nearly a full espresso shot worth of caffeine. If you’re looking for a caffeine-free or low caffeine drink, avoid Refreshers.
Chocolate drinks contain caffeine
Chocolate naturally contains some caffeine, although not a lot. A small hot chocolate has 9 mg of caffeine.
Dunkin’ Coolattas are loaded with sugar
Although there isn’t any caffeine in the non-coffee Coolattas, there is about 55 g of sugar in a small, 12 ounce size. To compare, Coca-Cola has 39 g of sugar in 12 ounces.
Steamed milk with flavors
To get a latte without any coffee, ask a barista to steam any kind of milk and add any of the swirl flavors, like caramel or vanilla. Get the drink topped with some whipped cream for a decadent touch.
12 Dunkin’ Drinks for Kids
1. Hibiscus Kiss Herbal Tea With Strawberry
Ice + Hibiscus Kiss Tea + Strawberry Coolatta Syrup
This is a custom drink that’s not on the Dunkin’ menu so it must be ordered in person by asking for a “small Hibiscus Kiss herbal tea with a pump of Strawberry Coolatta syrup.” Ask for a couple of ice cubes to cool this hot, caffeine-free tea.
2. Hot Chocolate
Water + Hot Chocolate Powder
Make it easier for your child to drink right away by asking for a few ice cubes to be put into the Hot Chocolate, to cool it down faster. Order it by asking for a “small hot chocolate with a few ice cubes added.”
