Our friends at Dunkin' Donuts stopped by to treat our entire studio audience with some of their new holiday taste treats and, of course, their signature coffee!
Plus, Jeff Miller, executive chef and VP of product innovation for all of Dunkin' Donuts, told us about the new flavors and showed us how to create a holiday wreath with donuts.
