Short King Dunkin' Drink

Dunkin’ is giving one of their classic coffee orders a cheeky new name.

To celebrate the first day of spring on Tuesday, the coffee and doughnut chain announced that they’re renaming the small iced regular coffee to “The Short King.” The menu item is named after what Dunkin’ dubs #ShortKingSpring. (Short King is a social media meme that celebrates the shorter men in all our lives.)

The drink will be available for a limited time exclusively in the Dunkin’ app.

Dunkin’ seems to be following a regal theme as of late. For the Super Bowl, the chain created an iconic commercial in which Ben Affleck enlisted his longtime friend Matt Damon, plus New England sports legend Tom Brady, to form the ultimate boy band called the DunKings.

In the vibrant ad, the trio all come together to celebrate Boston’s favorite coffee brand — and crash Jennifer Lopez’s recording session in the process.

Dunkin’ also introduced a DunKings menu. It includes Affleck’s own drink, DunKings Iced Coffee, which is based on his "go-to order": iced coffee with cream and notes of vanilla, and topped with sweet cold foam and a dusting of cinnamon sugar.

The DunKings menu also features Munchkins Skewers, which Damon held in the commercial. It consists of three assorted Munchkins on a stick, which can be added to any beverage (like olives on a martini) — or can be ordered on its own.

Other menu items include the Everything Encore Breakfast Sandwich, an an everything bagel with sweet black pepper, seasoned bacon, white cheddar cheese and egg; Hazelnut Heartthrob Iced Coffee, a hot or iced coffee blended with sweet caramel, notes of hazelnut and whole milk; and the Mixed Berry Beats Dunkin’ Refresher, a strawberry Dragonfruit Dunkin’ Refresher with an extra shot of raspberry flavor.
