New Raspberry Lime Coolatta From Dunkin Donuts
Summer has just arrived and Dunkin Donuts introduced two new flavors to their Coolatta drink line for summer sweet. One of the two new flavors is Raspberry Lime Coolatta and I decided to review this flavor first because of the color of the drink. I’ve tried couple Coolatta drinks from Dunkin Donuts in the past and it was somewhat good. I hope this one won’t disappoint me either. According to Dunkin Donuts, “Nothing says summer like frozen, fruity indulgence, courtesy of our new flavored Raspberry Lime® Coolatta®. The perfect companion for summertime adventure.”
The first thing I noticed after I got the drink from Dunkin Donuts employee was the color of this Coolatta looked different than the one on Dunkin Donuts Coolatta poster. The color on the poster leans toward lemon color rather than lime. The aroma smelled like refreshing raspberry with subtle hint of lime scent and the texture was all slush. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted like regular Mountain Dew believe it or not. After couple more sips, you could taste the so called raspberry flavor but it was not convincing. However, the lime flavor was right on the spot. If you sip it from the bottom of the cup where the syrup resides, the strong taste was nothing but a combination of sweet and sour tastes with mild lime flavor. After you let the slushes melt a bit, the taste becomes more enjoyable but that did not mean you could taste the raspberry flavor. Somehow after sipping for half an hour, the taste still reminds of me the Mountain Dew taste.
Ingredients for this Raspberry Lime Coolatta includes: Frozen Neutral Base: Water, Neutral Base (Sugar, Glucose, Fructose, Silicon Dioxide, Malic Acid, Xanthan Gum); Raspberry Lime Flavored Coolatta Concentrate: Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Citric Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate (Preservatives), Blue 1, Yellow 5, and BHT (Antioxidant). CONTAINS ALLERGENS: Milk, Soy.
Overall, this flavor tasted slightly better than other Coolatta drinks from Dunkin Donuts. By the wayt here’s another new flavor Coolatta called Berry Blast that needs to be reviewed and I hope it tastes good.
