The 16 year-old, TikTok sensation, Charli D’Amelio, has become famous all across the globe and her fame is still rising. Now, some are saying she has a reason for her fame other than just her viral videos on the social media app, TikTok. 


From the start of D’Amelio’s career, the internet has known about her obsession with Dunkin’ Donuts. On September 2, 2020, a dream of hers finally came true. Dunkin’ Donuts released a drink dedicated to D’Amelio and all of her achievements so far as a young adult. 


On the menu, it is called “The Charli”. This certain order consists of cold brew, whole milk, and three pumps of caramel swirl. 


The culture of TikTok made it a viral trend to go to Dunkin’ Donuts and try out the drink. It’s been a hot topic amongst teens over the past few weeks since D’Amelio and Dunkin’ Donuts released the drink.

I decided that it would be a good idea to finally try the drink myself. For my whole life, I have not been a huge coffee drinker. I find coffee to taste quite bitter without any sweetener, cream, or milk added. But, Charli D’Amelio has exceeded my expectations.


 If you are a coffee drinker that likes the drink sweet with a minimal taste of coffee, then this drink is the one for you. Even if you aren’t a coffee drinker, I still recommend trying the drink. The caramel added makes the drink less bitter and more sweet and flavorful. “It had the right amount of sweetness and because it is an iced drink, it is very refreshing and keeps you awake for the day,” says Freshman, Caroline Hoban. At Dunkin’ Donuts, when you order, just ask for the Charli and you will get all of the ingredients in a cup listed above!


The way that Charli D’Amelio has promoted herself over these past few weeks has made it hard to miss out on trying this drink. She really has had a major impact on the teenagers of this society in America and she will continue to. D’Amelio and Dunkin Donuts have changed my mind about coffee with this spectacular drink, I fully recommend trying it!
