Dunkin Donuts and Baskin-Robbins are working towards eliminating artificial colors from their popular foods by the end of 2018.

Dunkin Brand Group Inc. says they are already working on this change, but there will be exceptions.

Brand-name ingredients the company sources to use in toppings, ice cream mixes and decorations are out of their control.

The company also says that Baskin-Robbins will take longer to find replacements for ice cream cake decorations.
