Celebrity food and drinks have taken over Tiktok’s “For You” page and the news, quickly becoming the new craze at America’s most popular fast-food restaurants. Travis Scott, the rapper known for his hit song “Sicko Mode,” has his famous burger, fries with barbeque sauce, and Sprite all for $6 for a limited time at McDonald’s. The Travis Scott burger has been so popular that people are selling receipts and even stealing advertisements from restaurant windows for sky-high prices online. Additionally, the TikTok star Charli D’Amelio came out with “The Charli” drink available at Dunkin’ Donuts. Her new beverage is a medium cold brew with whole milk and three pumps of their caramel swirl for $4.19.
After hearing about her new drink, I decided to go to the nearest Dunkin’ to try it for myself. When I arrived, the drive-thru line was backed up around the whole building. After about fifteen minutes of waiting patiently, I finally got my hands on the famous drink. I have to say, I have never been a coffee fanatic and have never cared for the bitter, distinct taste, but my first impressions were nothing but positive. I can still taste the bold coffee flavor that coffee lovers live for, but in my opinion, the creamy whole milk and caramel swirl added a bit of sweetness that covered up the strong bitter taste of the beverage I have never cared for. Additionally, I think the medium size was perfect for the drink. You can still enjoy Charli’s famous beverage, but it won’t give you a crazy caffeine boost that will keep you awake all night long.
The drink also comes in the iconic clear Dunkin’ cup, with pink and orange writing, as well as Charli’s name written on the order sticker, so you can Snapchat all your friends, post on your Instagram story, and show the world you sipped on Charli’s new hot drink. Overall, even though I was hesitant to try it at first, I would definitely recommend trying “The Charli” and would say that it lived up to all the hype that social media has given it. I would definitely recommend trying out other celebrity foods if you’re looking for a fun thing to do, and you can find out if you have the same taste as your favorite internet superstars!
