The List of Drive-Thrus That Will Give You A Free Pup Cup
Starbucks, known for its delicious coffee and cozy atmosphere, is also a favorite among dog owners. When you order your favorite beverage, ask for a “Puppuccino” at the drive-thru, and the barista will hand you a small cup of whipped cream for your furry friend.
Dairy Queen is famous for its soft-serve ice cream and mouth-watering Blizzards. However, they also offer a “Pup Cup,” which consists of a small serving of their signature vanilla soft-serve ice cream. Make sure to ask for one without the chocolate curl, as chocolate is toxic to dogs.
Some places even have dog treats to add as a topper.
Sonic is known for its delicious burgers, hot dogs, and refreshing slushes. But did you know that Sonic also caters to dogs? When you visit their drive-thru, request a “Doggy Treat,” which is a small cup of whipped cream for your pup to enjoy.
Chick-fil-A is not only famous for its delicious chicken sandwiches but also for its exceptional customer service. Many locations provide a special “Doggy Treat” for your four-legged friend when you drive-thru. It’s usually a small cup of whipped cream, but availability might vary depending on the location.
Dunkin’ is a beloved coffee and donut chain, but they also have something for your furry friend. While not every location offers a pup-friendly treat, some drive-thrus provide a small cup of whipped cream, commonly known as a “Pup Cup.” Make sure to ask when you place your order.
Dutch Bros Coffee
Just like other major coffee chains, if you ask for a pup cup at Dutch Bros, you shall receive. You can get a free small cup of whipped cream during your visit.
This Canadian coffee and doughnut chain has made its way into the hearts of many Americans. Some Tim Hortons locations provide a “Pup Cup” upon request, which typically consists of a small cup of whipped cream or a dog biscuit.
While Shake Shack doesn’t have drive-thrus in every location, the ones that do often offer a special dog menu. Treat your pup to a “Pooch-ini,” which is a combination of ShackBurger dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce, and vanilla custard. Note that the Pooch-ini is not available at locations inside stadiums, ballparks, airports, or international outposts.
Also, this one isn’t free (it’s around $4) but it’s worth mentioning since it’s a delight for your dog.
Wendy’s is famous for their soft and creamy frosty’s and you can even get your pup a mini vanilla frosty for their treat! Just ask for a dog frosty next time you are there.
These are just some of the many drive-thrus that will give you a pup cup to treat your furry friend.
It’s important to remember that not every location may offer these treats, so it’s always a good idea to ask when you’re ordering. With this list in hand, you and your pup can enjoy a tasty snack together during your next drive-thru adventure.
