What’s in a Dutch Bros. Caramel Pumpkin Brulée Cold Brew- (ingredients)

The Dutch Bros Caramel Pumpkin Brulee Cold Brew is prepared with the following ingredients;

  • Pumpkin sauce: Dutch Bros uses the Torani pumpkin sauce in their Caramel Pumpkin Brulee Cold Brew to introduce the warm, subtly spicy, and rich pumpkin flavors. Also, this sauce is drizzled on top of the drink to garnish. The pumpkin sauce is made with sugar, corn syrup, water, nutmeg, caramel color, natural flavors, skim milk, salt, soy lecithin, non-fat milk, clove, gellan gum, preservatives, and xanthan gum.
  • Salted caramel syrup: This syrup is incorporated into the drink to add rich, sweet, and caramelly flavors. This syrup contains pure cane sugar, potassium sorbate, caramel color, natural flavors, sodium benzoate, citric acid, salt, and water.
  • Raw sugar sprinkles: To further sweeten the drink and garnish it, regular raw sugar is sprinkled on top of the soft top.
  • Cold brew coffee with cream: Cold Brew is prepared with coffee grounds, cold water, and cream as the base of the Caramel Pumpkin Brulee Cold Brew. Cold brew coffee is the source of caffeine in this beverage, while the cream provides a creamy and smooth texture. Dutch Bros coffee grounds are prepared with 100% Arabica roasted coffee beans.
  • Dutch Bros’ signature Soft Top: Made with half-and-half vanilla syrup, buttermilk, and sugar, the Dutch Bro’s soft top is used as a creamy and foamy garnish for the Caramel Pumpkin Brulee Cold Brew.
