Review: Dunkin Donuts - Coffee Coolatta

Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Coolatta
I tried Dunkin' Donuts' Coffee Coolatta while I was in Vegas; Fremont Street specifically.  Why Vegas?  Because we don't have Dunkin' Donuts in California and Vegas has the closest one.  I kid.  I went to Vegas to eat buffets.  Lots of them.  Honestly, I haven't been wowed (or even reasonably distracted) by anything I've tried at Dunkin'.  I was actually on Fremont Street to eat deep-fried Oreos for $0.99 and Dunkin' was nearby and a novelty.

Like similar coffee-based drinks from other chains, Dunkin's Coolatta features coffee, sugar, milk and artificial and natural flavors and cost $2.99 but everything is more expensive in the casinos, so it probably costs less elsewhere.  Unlike other places however, Dunkin's Coolatta is not mixed to order but is constantly churned in a machine like a Slurpie is which results in a more uniform and more icy consistency.

It tastes like a coffee slush, but was way too sweet.  Beyond that there was a weird, nutty aftertaste... The sibs thought it tasted alcoholic, but without the getting drunk part which is like "what's the point?"  The Coolatta also leaves a lasting syrupy taste on the tongue.

I hate wasting food but I couldn't stand to finish it; I only managed to drink a little more than half before I gave up.  The siblings pointed out that I would be better served to save my calories for better food.

  1. I tried a coffee/mocha coolatta. It was revolting. It tasted like a 7-11 slurpee made of burnt coffee and sugar. It was waaay too sweet and had a chemical aftertaste.

  2. I know, right?!
