Dunkin’ 2022 Vegan Spring Guide (Drinks and Food)


Dunkin 2022 Vegan Spring Guide

Dunkin’ has knocked it out of the park with its new menu items for the spring of 2022. We are so impressed!

Fresh and flavorful are the only words coming to mind.

…and that I can’t wait to get any and all of these (the vegan ones) again.

Only two of the new items are not vegan and cannot be made vegan. These are the chocolate croissant and the shamrock macchiato.

The chocolate croissant contains dairy and egg. And the shamrock macchiato has a flavored swirl called, Irish creme swirl, which contains dairy.

Let’s see what has debuted at Dunkin’ this spring that is vegan or can be modified. 


Dunkin’ Vegan Spring Guide


Dunkin’s 2022 Vegan Spring Menu Items

What Drinks Have Been Added?

Salted Caramel Syrup is the star of the new drinks added to Dunkin’s spring 2022 lineup. And if you are a caramel fan, you are going to love it!

Dunkin’ has given us two Salted Caramel drinks that can be made vegan with modifications. 

I do want to mention that we are not talking about Dunkin’s caramel swirl. It is not vegan as it contains dairy. The caramel swirl is NOT what is being used in these drinks but I wanted to make a note in case someone asks. 

Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew

Dunkin’ has added this incredible salted caramel syrup to their cold brew and when paired with oat milk, as we have done, it is delicious! Stronger coffee taste with nice caramel flavors.

TO MAKE IT VEGAN, order with your choice of non-dairy milk (oat, coconut, almond) and NO salted caramel cold foam. 

At Dunkin’, their cold brew is a coffee that has been steeped in cold water for 24 hours. To compare this to an iced coffee, a cold brew is stronger; making it a bit more flavorful. 

I do want to mention that Ryan generally does not go for caramel flavors because he says there is always a weird aftertaste. With this caramel, he said it does not have that aftertaste… he has thoroughly enjoyed this drink. 

The ingredients for the Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew (with the modifications) are:

Cold Brew Coffee: Steeped 100% Arabica Coffee; Salted Caramel Flavored Syrup: Brown Sugar, Water, Invert Sugar, Molasses, Natural Flavors, Contains 2% or less of: Potassium Sorbate (Preservative) and the non-dairy milk of your choice. 

You could also order the Salted Caramel Cold Brew with no non-dairy milk which would give you a flavored black cold brew.

Salted Caramel Latte, hot or iced

If you are looking for a magical salted caramel creamy coffee, this is your drink! I ordered it iced and am in heaven.

It is perfect for this warm spring day and tastes like a treat without being overly sweet. 

TO MAKE IT VEGAN, order with your choice of non-dairy milk (oat, coconut, almond) and NO whipped cream.

When ordering a latte at Dunkin’, you typically would not have to order it without whipped cream, but this new Salted Caramel Latte is considered a Signature Drink where whipped cream is added.

We would rather you be safe than sorry. 

When you want a coffee that tastes a little more decadent, a latte is a great option. Lattes are made with freshly ground and brewed espresso and milk. As we have here, a flavored syrup can be added. And you have the option to order these hot or iced.

The ingredients for the Salted Caramel Latte are:

Brewed Espresso Coffee; Salted Caramel Flavored Syrup: Brown Sugar, Water, Invert Sugar, Molasses, Natural Flavors, Contains 2% or less of: Potassium Sorbate (Preservative); non-dairy milk of choice; Topping: Sugar, Cinnamon, Cinnamon Oil

New Vegan Food!

Dunkin’ was already onto something by offering an avocado toast; however, they really stepped this idea up a notch with these three new menu items. I already mentioned this above but fresh and flavorful are the best two words I can use to describe these. 

Want to hear something even better than fresh and flavorful?

-> All three of these food items are vegan as-is!! <-

I do want to mention, in case you have allergies or sensitivities, that while eggs and dairy are not considered an allergen on Dunkin’s ingredients guide for these toasts, there is a warning that they may contain them. This would be due to the manufacturing process. 

Hummus Toast

Hummus Toast has been added to Dunkin’s menu and we think this is a great move by them. To expand the idea of the Avocado Toast was an excellent idea. 

You have sourdough bread topped with hummus and za’atar seasoning. If you are unfamiliar, za’atar is a spice blend that combines dried herbs, sesame seeds, salt, sumac, lemon, garlic and onion. 

Za’atar seasoning is generally added to Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. 

The ingredients of the Hummus Toast are:

Sourdough Bread: Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Rye Flour, Whole Grain Rye Flour, Salt, Yeast, Malted Barley Flour; Hummus: Chickpeas, Water, Sesame Tahini (Pure Crushed Sesame Seeds), Sunflower Oil and Olive Oil Blend, Sea Salt, Dehydrated Garlic, Citric Acid, Cumin, Guar Gum; Za’atar Seasoning: Spices, Sea Salt, Sesame Seeds, Sugar, Sumac Blend (Sumac, Salt), Lemon Powder (Maltodextrin, Lemon Puree, Citric Acid, Sugar, Lemon Juice), Dehydrated Onion, Yeast Extract, Dehydrated Garlic, Olive Oil, Natural Flavors. 

Hummus & Roasted Tomato Toast

Dunkin’s Hummus & Roasted Tomato Toast

Not only did Dunkin’ add Hummus to their menu, but they also added roasted tomatoes. Yes, you read that correctly… roasted tomatoes. 

You can now get a complete snack or a very light lunch at Dunkin’!

The smell from the seasonings on this toast was enticing. I could not wait to try it. And thankfully, the tastes matched the smell. So good!

The ingredients of the Hummus & Roasted Tomato Toast are:

Sourdough Bread: Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Rye Flour, Whole Grain Rye Flour, Salt, Yeast, Malted Barley Flour; Hummus: Chickpeas, Water, Sesame Tahini (Pure Crushed Sesame Seeds), Sunflower Oil and Olive Oil Blend, Sea Salt, Dehydrated Garlic, Citric Acid, Cumin, Guar Gum; Roasted Tomatoes: Tomatoes, Canola Oil, Garlic, Spices, Salt; Za’atar Seasoning: Spices, Sea Salt, Sesame Seeds, Sugar, Sumac Blend (Sumac, Salt), Lemon Powder (Maltodextrin, Lemon Puree, Citric Acid, Sugar, Lemon Juice), Dehydrated Onion, Yeast Extract, Dehydrated Garlic, Olive Oil, Natural Flavors.

Avocado & Roasted Tomato Toast

Dunkin’s Hummus & Roasted Tomato Toast

Dunkin’ has taken their avocado toast (sourdough bread + avocado spread) and added roasted tomatoes with an everything bagel topping. 

When I tell you that Dunkin’ has done these roasted tomatoes justice, they have! The spices are on point, especially with the addition of everything bagel seasoning. 

The biggest difference I noticed between the Avocado & Roasted Tomato Toast and the Hummus & Roasted Tomato Toast was that the Avocado one has a fuller taste to it…

I initially thought that maybe it was from avocado being a whole fat compared to hummus but when I looked at the nutrition information, there wasn’t much of a difference and in fact, the Avocado & Roasted Tomato Toast was a little lower on calories. 

The ingredients of the Avocado & Roasted Tomato Toast are:

Sourdough Bread: Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Rye Flour, Whole Grain Rye Flour, Salt, Yeast, Malted Barley Flour; Avocado Spread: Hass Avocados, Lemon Juice, Sea Salt, Black Pepper; Roasted Tomatoes: Tomatoes, Canola Oil, Garlic, Spices, Salt; Everything Bagel Topping: Sesame Seeds, Poppy Seeds, Dehydrated Onion, Dehydrated Garlic, Rolled Oats.

To Sum It Up…

We applaud Dunkin’ for their new 2022 spring additions and would be willing to order any of them again.

For me, the Salted Caramel Latte (with oat milk) and the Hummus & Roasted Tomato Toast were my favorites, while the Salted Caramel Cold Brew (with oat milk) and the Avocado & Roasted Tomato Toast was Ryan’s.

If you would like to see all of Dunkin’s Vegan Options, we have a guide that makes ordering simple and straightforward.
