Dunkin' has officially retired the Dunkaccino.
The hot drink, which mixed together coffee and hot chocolate, has been pulled from the coffee company's menu after more than 20 years.
A company spokesperson confirmed the news in a statement to PEOPLE on Friday, but they also didn't rule out the Dunkaccino making a comeback one day.
"As we focus on innovation and finding new ways to delight guests, we continually evolve our menu in an effort to deliver a fast, frictionless experience," they said. "The Dunkaccino is retired for now, but there's always the chance for its return in the future."
The drink was first added to the Dunkin' menu in 2000, according to the chain's Facebook timeline, and was described by the company as a "unique blend of coffee and hot chocolate flavors." It was also briefly offered frozen from 2015.

In the ad, Affleck, 50, plays a Dunkin' employee serving unsuspecting customers their beverages and treats in a hidden camera-like spot. Whilst Affleck is working in the drive-thru, Lopez, 53, appears and teases her husband. "What are you doing? Is that what you do when you say you're going to work all day?" she says.
It aired during the first commercial break of the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Opening up to PEOPLE about starring in the ad, Affleck, who grew up in New England, said, "I think people already sort of think that I work for Dunkin'."
He continued, "In Boston, it was such a big deal. I think I became kind of associated with it, and this sounded like a fun opportunity to kind of play with that association, and a chance to come back here to shoot it at home in Boston."
