A classic Easter treat is getting a twist of java. 

Dunkin’ is releasing jelly beans based on its iced coffee drinks, the company announced earlier this week. 

Flavors in the Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Flavored Jelly Beans bags include French vanilla, caramel latte, butter pecan, toasted coconut and hazelnut.

“Jelly beans are such a classic and popular part of the holiday and seasonal celebration,” Brian Gilbert, Dunkin’s vice president of retail business development, said in a statement. 

Dunkin’s jelly beans are inspired by the chain’s iced coffee drink flavors like french vanilla, caramel latte, butter pecan, toasted coconut and hazelnut.

“We are thrilled to team up with Frankford Candy, the leader in confections that have delighted Americans for decades, to create a fun and sweet new way for people to enjoy the great taste of Dunkin’,” Gilbert added.

Last month, the fast food chain added new savory items to its seasonal menu, including avocado toast and two kinds of grilled cheese. The additions were promoted as on-the-go brunch or lunch options. 

For $2.99, a far cry away from sky-high prices that some restaurants infamously charge for the toast, customers can dig into creamy avocado spread on sourdough bread, garnished with “everything bagel” seasoning.
