A Dunkin’ employee is dividing social media users after sharing an obscure menu item that she says “nobody orders.”
The beverage, called a “Dunkin’ Energy punch,” only comes in a large size and includes an entire can of the popular energy drink — plus plenty of flavored syrup.
Her video drew thousands of comments, with many Dunkin’ fans admitting they’d never heard of the beverage. Of those users, several seemed to find the item pretty undesirable.
“I can feel the heartburn already,” one user wrote.
“This just gave me acid reflux through the screen,” another added.
Others were simply shocked the item existed.
“Wait is this on the menu?” one user asked.
“I work at Dunkin and even I didn’t know about this until today,” another confessed.
Some users, meanwhile, strongly defended the item. Several, who said they have long known about the drink, called it a “go-to” or their “favorite” thing on the menu.
“I LIVE FOR THE ENERGY PUNCH,” one user wrote.
Opinions aside, the drink isn’t technically a “secret” item — it’s just not on every menu. The beverage, officially called the Dunkin’ Energy Punch powered by Monster Energy, was introduced in 2017 as a seasonal menu item. It’s also only available in certain parts of the country.
