    Dunkin' Donuts is once again offering customers another beverage choice — this time a ready-to-drink coffee in a can.

    The "Shot in the Dark" coffee espresso blend will be Dunkin' Donuts' first-ever coffee beverage served in a can. The 8.1-ounce can is available in three flavors: caramel, mocha, and vanilla.

    The company successfully launched bottled iced coffee beverages two years ago.

    "Our fans have loved our ready to drink iced coffees as a great way to power through their day with Dunkin’ anytime and anywhere," according to Brian Gilbert, Dunkin’ Donuts Vice President, Retail Business Development. "Now, for the coffee-loving consumers who want something a little bolder than a traditional cup of coffee, but not as strong as a shot of espresso, our Shot in the Dark creates an exciting and energizing new option when on-the-go."

    The "Shot in the Dark" drink is already available in select retail locations. Dunkin' plans to expand its availability through 2019 at convenience and grocery stores across the United States.
