Following the introduction of Dunkin’ Donuts’ autumn flavors to their menu, a TikTok user has garnered significant attention for sharing a pumpkin coffee beverage overloaded with sugar.
With the arrival of fall, it’s time to embrace those beloved seasonal flavors. Dunkin’ Donuts, known for its pumpkin spice offerings and toasty treats during this time of year, has expanded its selection to include both classic and new fall flavors.
However, one particular pumpkin-flavored coffee concoction at Dunkin’ Donuts has become a viral sensation on TikTok due to its extraordinarily high sugar content.
While these seasonal treats may only be available for a limited time each year, questions have arisen about the considerable amount of sugar packed into this delightful drink. A TikTok user took it upon themselves to dissect the label of a specific Dunkin’ Donuts beverage and discovered that it contained as much sugar as 14 glazed donuts – yes, you read that correctly, 14 donuts!
The particular beverage in question is Dunkin’ Donuts’ large pumpkin swirl frozen coffee, which boasts a staggering 1000 calories and a whopping 46 teaspoons of sugar. To put it into perspective, that’s equivalent to the sugar content of 14 glazed donuts.
The revelation about the excessive sugar content in this popular Dunkin’ Donuts fall beverage was so astonishing that a TikTok user named Flavcity felt compelled to address the health implications in a now-viral video. In the video, he incredulously asks, “Who the heck thought it was a good idea to put this on the menu?”
Flavcity proceeds to discuss the sugar content of the frozen coffee drink while a box of 14 glazed donuts is placed next to it to emphasize the alarming sugar ratio.
Viewers who have come across Flavcity’s video online expressing disbelief at the sugar content of Dunkin’s fall beverage have left comments such as, “My jaw dropped,” and questioned the legality of companies offering such sugary items on their menus. Some found humor in the fact that Flavcity conducted his Dunkin’ Donuts drink review while seated inside the store, describing it as legendary and amusing.
