CANTON, MA -- Dunkin' Donuts has taken the wraps off its new ready-to-drink Shot in the Dark coffee-espresso blend, the brand's first-ever coffee beverage served in a can.
 
Manufactured and distributed by the Coca-Cola Company, Shot in the Dark combines the classic tastes of Dunkin's signature coffee and espresso. Served in a slim can, Shot in the Dark delivers Dunkin' Donuts' high-quality coffee with a touch of cream and sugar, combined with espresso for a full-bodied, rich, smooth coffee espresso blend.
 
Offered in three flavors -- caramel, mocha and vanilla -- each 8.1-fl.oz. can of Shot in the Dark has 80 calories. Shot in the Dark can be found now in select retail locations, and its availability will continue to expand through 2019 for sales in vending and at convenience and retail stores across the U.S.
 
"Now, for the coffee-loving consumers who want something a little bolder than a traditional cup of coffee, but not as strong as a shot of espresso, our Shot in the Dark creates an exciting and energizing new option when on-the-go," said Dunkin' Donuts vice-president of retail business development Brian Gilbert.
 
Also new and available nationwide for a limited time this fall is RTD bottled pumpkin spice iced coffee in a 13.7-fl.oz. bottle.
 
Coca-Cola Co. and its bottling partners have been manufacturing and distributing Dunkin' Donuts branded bottled RTD coffee beverages since the beginning of 2017.
