If you love Peppermint Mocha coffee from Dunkin' during the Winter months, I'm sorry be they one to tell you, it's going to be a long season for you. The beloved holiday flavor will not return to the Massachusetts based coffee giant for the first time since 2004.

When rumors that the trademark Peppermint Mocha Flavor went viral, loyal Dunks patrons were devastated, provoking a response from Dunks corporate, that gave fans a glimmer of hope.  The chain announced that no change is ever permanent, hinting that we might see the flavor return in the future, just not this year.

We’re always looking to provide our guests with new, delicious coffee flavors. While Peppermint Mocha could certainly return in the future, this year we’re excited to introduce a new Cinnamon Sticky Bun flavor and bring back the guest favorite White Chocolate flavor. Cinnamon Sticky Bun Coffee and Lattes inspire holiday cheer with the indulgent flavors of a warm sticky bun, including cinnamon with a hint of frosting. White Chocolate Coffees and Lattes combine creamy white chocolate and subtle vanilla flavors.

Can Cinnamon Sticky Bun ever possibly compare to Peppermint Mocha?
