FAST FOOD NEWS: Dunkin’ Refreshers

Starbucks’ Refreshers have been around for eight years. Dunkin’s Refreshers have been around for significantly shorter than that. The new cold drink line from Dunkin’ is made with iced green tea, flavored fruit concentrate, and B vitamins. They get their caffeine from green tea, which is unlike the Starbucks’ version that gets it from green coffee. There are two flavors to try — Strawberry Dragonfruit and Peach Passion Fruit. A large Strawberry Dragonfruit has 170 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 mi...

FAST FOOD NEWS: Dairy Queen Piñata Party Blizzard

Dairy Queen is celebrating its 80 years of existence with the Piñata Party Blizzard. It features confetti frosting, cake pieces, and cake batter confetti stars blended into DQ’s vanilla soft serve. The treat is also finished with whipped topping and edible glitter. I’m surprised DQ didn’t top the Blizzard with one of its Buster Bars that could represent the stick or bat used to swing at a pinata. I’m also disappointed DQ didn’t include it because I like it when the chain tops a Blizzard with a ...
