Dunkin' has been rolling out new menu items all year long, but their latest creation might be their most exciting yet. If you're a "don't talk to me unless I've had my coffee" person, listen up, because Dunkin's new extra-charged coffee contains more caffeine than ever before.

Available in both iced and hot versions, Dunkin's brew packs 20 percent more caffeine than a typical roast blend available at the chain. That extra boost of caffeine comes from green coffee extract, the brand explained in a blog post, which means the caffeine is extracted from the coffee bean before it goes through the roasting process.

In the article, Dunkin' also explained why you may want to opt for an extra-charged beverage rather than customizing a drink with an added shot of espresso. The main reason is that adding espresso can change the flavor profile of the drink, according to Dunkin's Senior Manager of Research and Development Heidi Curry. Plus, the new brew of coffee has the same taste that Dunkin' fans already know and love.

To celebrate the launch of this new menu item, Dunkin' is offering their guests a medium hot or iced extra-charged coffee for $2 through January 26 so you can start your year off with all the energy and all the good vibes. While you're at the drive-thru window, might as well pick up some hash browns while you're at it...and a donut, of course.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
