BURLINGTON, Mass. and FRISCO, Texas, USA – The Original Donut Shop Coffee and dessert company MilkBar have collaborated on four custom treat recipes, including a limited edition menu item, just in time for the holiday season. Cup o’ Cookie is inspired by The Original Donut Shop Coffee Regular Medium Roast variety and will be available at Milk Bar flagship locations in New York City and Los Angeles.

This treat is served in a cup wrapped with a chocolate chip-pretzel-potato chip studded cake around an inner core of creamy vanilla custard, topped with Compost Cookie Crunchies, and served with a pourable sidekick of the flavorful coffee.

“At Milk Bar, we like to flip the script, encouraging you to see things a little differently, creating new traditions and favorites. When it came to coffee we asked, why is it the cookie that always gets dunked into the coffee and not the other way around?,” said Christina Tosi, Award Winning Chef and Founder of Milk Bar.

“So we teamed up with our friends at The Original Donut Shop Coffee to put a new twist on the routine, celebrating what happens when you see life with bold takes and unexpected flavors. Enter: Cup o’ Cookie, my new favorite creation powered by the best coffee out there (and way to have my cookie and cup of coffee, too).”

Together, the two everyday treat-inspired brands are also releasing three at-home recipes, available on both the Milk Bar and Keurigwebsites, that will take you from treating yourself to treating friends and family this holiday season. The recipes are all inspired by or enjoyed with The Original Donut Shop® Coffee’s unique, fan favorite flavors – Peppermint Bark, Coconut + Mocha Duos, and 1 Step Red Velvet Latte.

  • Peppermint Bark Cups
    • Infused with The Original Donut Shop Peppermint BarkCoffee, the cups are in a white chocolate shell with peppy bits, cocoa caramel filling and pretzels.
  • Coconut Mocha Granola Bars
    • With a surprise sprinkling of The Original Donut Shop Coconut + Mocha DuosCoffee to get your day going right, these bars are made with whole oats, shredded coconut and bursts of chocolate.
    • The Coconut Mocha Granola Bars at-home recipe is now available on the Keurig Mobile App, available for free download on Appleand Androiddevices, so you can whip up a batch for yourself and loved ones.
  • Red Velvet Shortbread Sticks
    • These shortbread sticks bring endless amounts of fudgy, cocoa-y goodness to the table and are best paired with a sidekick of The Original Donut Shop Coffee 1 Step Red Velvet Lattefor dunking.

“As a coffee brand that exists to bring ‘everyday treats’ to consumers through bold and unexpected flavors, a collaboration with a beloved dessert shop during the holiday season made perfect sense,” said Scott Christensen, Senior Director Brand Marketing, Keurig Dr Pepper. “We couldn’t be more excited for consumers to treat themselves and their families with these delicious recipes and coffee pairings this holiday season!”

Cup o’ Cookie will be available at Milk Bar’s two flagship locations for $16 beginning December 1, until December 19, 2022. Flagship locations are as follows: Nomad in New York (1196 Broadway at 29th Street, New York, NY 10001) and Melrose in Los Angeles (7150 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046).
