According to Reddit, anyone looking for a twist on a typical chai drink should consider the Golden Eagle Chai with a Soft Top as it takes the traditional drink and brings it to a whole new level.

The base is a spiced, rich chai tea, think of warm flavors like cardamom and cinnamon. Then, Dutch Bros adds a blend of caramel and vanilla to add sweetness to the spice.

The whipped cream soft top finishes the drink with a frothy, creamy layer. As an option, you can ask for a sprinkle of nutmeg! Whether you’re having a lazy afternoon or out and about on a chilly morning, this chai version is a solid choice. It gives you the warmth you get with the traditional chai with a sweet layer to make it an indulgent and cozy drink.

The Caramelizer from Dutch Bros is a great choice if you like the mixture of caramel and coffee. This drink is essentially a mocha with shots of caramel syrup. To make it, they use a robust espresso as the base to give that strong coffee kick before blending in rich caramel and chocolate. As with all Dutch drinks it comes in iced, hot, or blended forms. 

It’s a great option when you want something slightly above plain coffee that’s not overly complex. You’ll taste a balance between the bitterness of the espresso and the buttery taste of the caramel. It’s a fan-favorite for a reason – offering a familiar mocha taste with just enough of a twist to keep it interesting.

The Shark Attack is part of Dutch Bros’ Blue Rebel Energy Drink line, but it has a very unique presentation and flavor that makes it stand out.

The visual appeal is part of this drink as well as you can see below. It’s a fun-looking summer drink for those who like energy drinks but want something a little different. 

6. Double Torture

If you take your coffee seriously and like some extra caffeine (I know I do), the Double Torture is a must-try. This drink is a flavor-packed blend that doubles the espresso, giving you a jolt of caffeine with an intense, strong coffee flavor. However, this drink isn’t all about strength; it strikes a nice balance with chocolate milk and vanilla syrup, and which adds a nice balance to the more bold espresso taste. 

You can order a Double Torture as a blended, hot, or iced drink, whatever you’re feeling that day.

7. Double Rainbro

If you’re looking for a non-coffee drink, try the Double Rainbro. It’s a sweet tea that combines peach, strawberry, and coconut flavors. It gives you a fruity and light taste without skimping on the flavor, and it’s a versatile drink that you can have hot or blended.

Its blend of fruity flavors makes it a hit among those who enjoy a sweet, tropical taste.

Overall, the Double Rainbro is a great alternative to coffee-based drinks, offering a unique and enjoyable flavor profile. It’s like a little burst of sunshine in your day, making it a popular choice among Dutch Bros customers looking for something different and delicious.

8. Kicker

The Kicker is a beloved fan-favorite for anyone who wants to add a creamy twist to a traditional coffee. This drink is a breve, and this means that it has half-and-half instead of regular milk, giving it a creamier and richer texture. It also has irish cream which adds a nutty and sweet flavor.

 It’s not overly complicated or too sweet, making it a great choice for those who appreciate the essence of good coffee with a flavorful addition. It’s ideal for a morning pick-me-up or a midday treat that’s not too heavy but still satisfying.

Available hot, blended, or iced, the Kicker is versatile and can be enjoyed year-round. It’s a staple for Dutch Bros fans who prefer a classic coffee flavor with a delightful twist.

The Nitro Infused Cold Brew from Dutch Bros stands out for those who are after the strong, pure coffee taste. This drink takes the rich, smooth flavor you get with cold brew and infuses it with nitrogen, giving it a silky, creamy texture that is unique. 

Also, the nitro infusion means that the drink has a fun, cascading effect when served, which is kind of satisfying.

Despite its creamy texture, the drink is surprisingly light and refreshing, making it an excellent choice for hot days or when you need a strong caffeine kick without the heaviness of a milk-based coffee.
