Vegans, rejoice.

Dunkin’ Donuts, through a partnership with Blue Diamond, is now offering Blue Diamond vanilla flavored Almond Breeze Almondmilk for customers desiring a dairy-free option. According to a press release, certain locations throughout the country will now be able to accommodate customers looking to avoid dairy. When asked, Dunkin’ said that almond milk is the first dairy-free option they have ever offered in most locations nationwide, although some franchises already offer soy milk that is purchased locally. Most of their traditional donuts do not contain milk or eggs, but since they can come in contact with such products, they can’t be labeled as “vegan.”

“Based on an increasing number of customer requests, we began to explore options for expanding our menu with a non-dairy alternative to milk and cream,” said John Costello, president of global marketing and innovation for Dunkin’ Brands, the chain’s parent company. “We believe adding Almond Breeze Almondmilk now gives our guests a unique and delicious new way to enjoy our famous coffee or lattes.”

To draw attention to the addition of almond milk, Dunkin’ held a three-day Twitter sweepstakes that started Wednesday and offers various prizes to participants. To find a Dunkin’ near you that has almond milk, go to the store locator on DunkinDonuts.com and look for a location with an “AM” symbol next to it. According to the store locator, 45 of 50 locations within 10 miles of Kenmore Square are offering almond milk.
