As a frequent visitor to Dutch Bros and a resident of Oregon, I'm thrilled to share some exciting news from our favorite local coffee chain! Dutch Bros, headquartered in our very own Grants Pass, has just introduced an invigorating addition to their menu – the Salted Caramel Protein Latte and Mocha.

Protein drinks have surged in popularity in recent years, driven by a growing consumer emphasis on health and wellness. Key factors influencing this trend include taste, quality, the use of natural ingredients, and cost-effectiveness. This shift towards protein is largely due to its association with a healthy diet and lifestyle, as proteins are viewed not only as essential macronutrients but also as contributors to overall health, weight management, energy, and immune health.

These new beverages are a game-changer for those of us who crave a delicious coffee fix without compromising on health. Packed with 20 grams of protein and free from added sugars, these drinks are perfect for giving you that extra boost, especially if you're like me, always on the go. Whether you're starting a busy day or need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, Dutch Bros has got you covered.

The Salted Caramel Protein Latte is a delightful mix of rich espresso, creamy protein milk, and the sweet-and-salty goodness of salted caramel, all topped off with a drizzle of caramel. And for the chocolate lovers out there, the Salted Caramel Protein Mocha combines the same great flavors with the added indulgence of chocolate sauce.

Tana Davila, the chief marketing officer at Dutch Bros, emphasizes their commitment to innovation and meeting customer needs. She assures that these new offerings in the 'better for you' category don't compromise on quality or taste. I've tried them, and I can confidently say they live up to the promise!

The best part? You can add protein milk to any Dutch Bros coffee throughout February. So, if you have a go-to order, why not give it a protein-packed twist? These new drinks will be available until February 29, so make sure to swing by your nearest Dutch Bros and give them a try.
