With so much news in the media that makes you grimace, I'm about to shift your focus to something I love to talk about...food. Who doesn't like to talk about food? A love of delicious beverages and food that we relish is something most of us share and we all know that common shared experiences are just what we all need in the divisive time we're in right now.

Here's a delicious distraction for you away from world events...Dunkin' ahead of the spring season has come out with new beverages and food items on the menu according to dunkin.com.

New Dunkin' offerings:

Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew: a blend of slow-steeped, cold brew and salted caramel flavor, topped with Salted Caramel Cold Foam, combining sweet and salty flavors.

Salted Caramel Signature Latte: You can get this hot or iced. Again, this mixes salty and sweet with espresso, milk, and salted caramel flavor; topped off with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and a bit of cinnamon sugar.

Shamrock Macchiato: A nod to spring and St. Patrick's Day this drink is made with layers of espresso and Irish Creme flavoring, with a bit of cream and vanilla added in. If you like the taste of Irish whiskey, you may be able to taste some of that flavor there. By the way, as one would expect, this drink is bright green and meant to be festive.

Roasted Tomato and Hummus Toast: Sourdough bread is toasted and topped with oven-roasted tomatoes, hummus spread, and a blend of spices and herbs, with a sprinkle of Za’atar seasoning.

Roasted Tomato and Avacado Toast: Sourdough bread is toasted and topped with oven-roasted tomatoes and an avocado spread, then topped with "Everything Bagel" seasoning.

Chocolate Croissant: I'm a big fan of buttery croissants and if they're chocolate, that's even better! This butter croissant is filled with three chocolate batons and served warm. I'm looking forward to trying that.
