If you’re an avid TikToker, you might have heard of Charli D’Amelio.
You might also have heard about her signature drink at Dunkin’ Donuts. If you haven’t heard of either the TikTok viral star or her signature coffee order, you probably have some questions.
Luckily, we have the answers!
Read on to learn about The Charli, what it’s made of, and what the partnership is all about.
What is “The Charli” Dunkin’ Drink?
The special order at the Dunkin’ Donuts chain of coffee and donut shops is a pretty straightforward drink.
The most basic version of the drink includes Dunkin’ cold brew iced coffee, whole milk, and three pumps of caramel swirl.
Dunkin’ makes its cold brew pretty simple: the company steeps dark roast coffee beans in cold water for 12 hours.
This ensures maximum flavor extraction while keeping the acidity as low as possible. Dunkin’s cold brew coffee stands up to even a true coffee snob’s tastes.
Another thing to know about the components of this relatively new Dunkin offering is the difference between the swirls and the flavor shots that Dunkin’ offers.
Swirls are a line of syrups Dunkin’ uses to sweeten drinks as well as add signature flavors. Flavor shots are sugar-free and dairy-free.
You don’t have to stick with just the standard Charli, either. Dunkin’ offers another variation, the Charli Cold Foam, which features the brand’s signature new sweet cold foam and cinnamon sugar.

The partnership between Charli D’Amelio and Dunkin’ was an obvious choice long before the 2020 launch of the Charli drink.
One of the facts every Charli fan knows about the TikToker is her love of Dunkin’, so the brand reached out to her to make a custom order and also to set up a sweepstake to go with it.
The drink is available at any local Dunkin, but you may have to order it as itself rather than just asking for “The Charli,” especially now that the promotion has run its course.
Fortunately, the order isn’t too complicated, no matter which version you look for.
You can put in your order in person or even on the Dunkin’ app, selecting the cold brew, three pumps of caramel swirl, and whole milk for the original.
If you want a more luxe experience, request the sweet cold foam and cinnamon sugar, and voila: your Charli cold foam is complete.
The Charli Drink Flavor
Cold-brew with whole milk and caramel swirl is not the most sophisticated drink in the world, but that doesn’t mean the Charli drink is just a gimmick.
The combination of dark roast ground coffee and cold water works alchemy that’s greater than the sum of the parts, and the bold, rich flavor pairs nicely with rich whole milk and caramel sweetness.
It’s a great everyday drink in the basic form, but the Charli cold foam takes it to the next level, with velvety cold foam that makes for such a smooth addition.
The cinnamon sugar elevates the experience as well, adding a spicy counterpoint to all the richness.
If you’re curious about the Charli drink, it’s definitely worth trying. And it may even become your new go-to Dunkin’ drink.
