The Best Way to Order Flavor Swirls at Dunkin’ Donuts

When ordering flavor swirls at Dunkin’ Donuts, be sure to specifically mention “swirl” as the baristas are usually trained to make drinks with flavor shots unless the customer specifically mentions the swirls.

For example, when ordering a latte with the vanilla swirl, avoid saying a latte with vanilla because the barista will make the order with the vanilla shot instead of the sweetened vanilla swirl.
