DUNKIN’ Donuts fans are in luck because the brand is introducing a special new Munchkin treat as part of a new partnership with Ice Spice.
Every year, Dunkin’ updates its menu with a fall offering of drinks, donuts and more.
This year, the pumpkin spice rush is getting a new look thanks to Dunkin’s partnership with rapper Ice Spice.
The announcement came this weekend on X (formerly known as Twitter) when Ice Spice tweeted, “America is running on MUNCHKINS.”
Beneath her tweet was a picture of the iconic pumpkin munchkin with a diamond princess necklace draped around his sweet, sugary exterior.
Over the popular mini donut, Ice Spice announced that the new treat would officially hit stores on September 13th.
Dunkin also made its announcement on its own social media.
Alongside the same photo, Dunkin’ wrote, “Put the ice cream in pumpkin spice.”
However, the collaboration between Dunkin’ and Ice Spice also means guests have the opportunity to try a drink they’ve never had before.
The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink will be available for a limited time from September 13th to October 31st.
Each frozen coffee drink consists of five layers mixed in a blend, with Dunkin’ frozen coffee base mixed with Munchkins donuts.
There is also some caramel and whipped cream.
Ice Spice is a rapper from the Bronx, New York City, known for her rise to fame on TikTok.
Today, she’s collaborated with artists like Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift, and Dunkin’s new fall drink will be her first major partnership with a fast food brand.
Dunkin’ fans are already gearing up for the highly anticipated release of the Pumpkin Munchkin.
Upon hearing the news, one fan wrote, “I’m going to buy out the entire Munchkin section.”
Another happy customer said, “Whoever came up with this idea deserves a raise.”
Also on the menu for this year’s Dunkin’ Fall lineup are the brand’s signature Pumpkin Spice Latte, Nutty Pumpkin Coffee, Pumpkin Swirl and of course the traditional Pumpkin Donut.

Dunkin’ has been in the news for less than happy reasons in recent months.
After the White Hot Chocolate drink was removed from stores nationwide, fans took to social media to complain about the popular drink’s disappearance.
One frustrated fan wrote on X: “Dunkin’ Donuts can you please bring back the white hot chocolate!!!!!!”
Another shopper echoed this sentiment:
“I would do anything to get the white hot chocolate from Dunkin’ Donuts that they discontinued,” they wrote.
