Dunkin’ Donuts Just Launched Oat Milk

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

If you are a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee lover and avoid dairy, then you are going to be mighty pleased to find out that the fast-food giant has now made oat milk available at all of its US locations. At the beginning of 2020, Dunkin’ Donuts introduced the dairy alternative at only some locations in California. But now they’ve partnered with Planet Oat, a brand owned by 1846 established HP Hood, LLC. The plant-milk company has become a leader in the plant-based milk market. This is exciting news because it makes Dunkin’ Donuts one of the first national fast-food restaurants to offer oat milk all across the US. And as if this news couldn’t get any better, it does! Dunkin’ Donuts also introduced its new Iced Oat Milk Latte. Plus, you can order pretty much any other specialty beverage with the new dairy alternative. Even vegan influencer Tabitha Brown has announced the news on her Instagram page. She encouraged her fans to go out and try the new beverage with oat milk promising it to be “creamy and delicious.”
