Dunkin’ Donuts Games Summer with New Arnold Palmer Coolatta

Few things scream summer like iced tea, lemonade, and old golfing guys. So in partnership with $1-canned-tea company AriZona, Dunkin’ Donuts decided to put them all together in slushy form, lest we forget summer vacation is still at least a month away and we ourselves are nowhere near retiring (ugh).

For those who dare to dream, DD’s new Frozen Arnold Palmer Coolatta combines equal parts football head and tropical plant frozen iced tea and frozen lemonade to create the perfect liquid accompaniment to planning summer getaways during office hours.

“With the beginning of warm weather, our guests look forward to the introduction of new and unique Coolatta frozen beverage flavors […],” John Costella, President of Global Marketing and Dunkin’ Brands said in a press release. “This year is especially exciting as we’ve partnered with the Arizona Beverages and Arnold Palmer Enterprises to introduce the new Frozen Arnold Palmer® Coolatta, featuring the classic combination of iced tea and lemonade as legendary as the man after which it’s named.”

Also returning to Dunkin’ menu boards for summer are the Oreo Coffee and Oreo Vanilla Bean Coolatta and the Watermelon and Blue Raspberry Coolatta. Each, along with yearlong flavors like Strawberry, is available in the small size for $1.99 ’til the end of May.

This Glass Lets You Drink Two Different Beers at the Same Damn Time

In a move part Escher, part why-didn’t-we-think-of-that, comes the Dual Beer Glass. Crafted by Matthew Cummings of The Pretentious Beer Glass Company (gotta love the honesty), the cylindrical beer glass houses two separate chambers that meet at the lip. This clever design allows amateur bartenders to pour the perfect Half and Half, eliminating the need for a bar spoon to prevent the two beers from blending.

This opens up a whole avenue of possible brew combinations, even with those of similar viscosity. The design also allows you to simultaneously smell both beers, rather than just the predominating aroma that settles on top. Each glass measure approximately 5-6″ tall and 3″ wide, holding a total of 10-12 oz.

As an ex-bartender whose mussed up my fair share of Black and Tans and (shudder) Cotton Candies, aka raspberry cider and hefeweizen, this utilitarian glassware  has definitely got my interest piqued.
