Dunkin’ Donuts is one of America’s best coffee chains. There’s often a drive-thru, and the menu can make your morning incredibly convenient — but not everything they offer is healthy.
If you’re stopping at Dunkin’ Donuts to get a quick fix of caffeine, you probably want to order something relatively low in sugar from the menu. After all, a sugar crash would kind of defeat the purpose of an energizing drink to start the day, right?
Dunkin’s menu is filled with options that sound tempting and decadent — but these items have a ton of excess sugar and syrup. It can be difficult to discern whether the blended drink you choose is a good choice or not, unless you scour the chain’s huge PDF of nutrition facts beforehand online. Who has time (or energy) for that before their morning cup of joe?
We did the work for you and found the drinks with the most calories and sugar and the drinks with the least. That way, when you walk into Dunkin’ Donuts looking for a drink to start your day, you don’t accidentally fall into a syrupy, sweet trap. Here are the 10 healthiest and the 10 unhealthiest drinks at Dunkin’ Donuts.
Healthiest: Hot Tea
Your healthiest menu option is probably a hot cup of brewed tea. Tea has many health benefits ranging from immune support to cancer-fighting antioxidants. This beverage has zero calories and is relatively inexpensive compared to other menu options. Dunkin’ Donuts carries a variety of options, including black tea, hibiscus tea, and chamomile tea. Opt for chamomile if you’re feeling stressed, or if you’re feeling any of these other ailments.
