CANTON, Mass. (February 4, 2010) -- This Valentine's Day, Dunkin' Donuts wants you to think outside the traditional box of chocolates. February is "Chocolate Lovers" month at Dunkin' Donuts, America's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods. Whether you're seeking a sweet treat for your sweetheart or perhaps a comforting snack to warm your own spirits on a cold winter day, throughout the month Dunkin' Donuts restaurants will offer several new choices for a chocolate break that won't break your budget.

For chocolate lovers looking for a treat for under a dollar, Dunkin' Donuts is offering the new Triple Chocolate Donut, a chocolate cake donut topped with chocolate frosting and milk chocolate chips. Perfect for Valentine's Day, Dunkin' Donuts' Sprinkle The Love Donut is a chocolate frosted yeast donut topped with special heart-shaped sprinkles. Both are available at the suggested retail price of 89 cents.

Dunkin' Donuts has also introduced the new White Chocolate Latte topped with a mocha swirl drizzle. Served hot or iced, white chocolate flavoring adds the perfect touch of chocolate to the traditional Dunkin' Donuts latte. All Dunkin' Donuts lattes are made with rich espresso, derived from high-quality, 100% Fair Trade Certified coffee beans, and steamed milk.

For Chocolate Lovers month, Dunkin' Donuts is bringing back by popular demand two bakery favorites. The Triple Chocolate Muffin, made with a blend of cocoas and loaded with chocolate chunks and chips is available at the suggested retail price of $1.39. Dunkin' Donuts' brownie is topped with creamy chocolate icing, white chocolate shavings and a chocolate drizzle, and is available at the suggested retail price of $1.39.

Finally, Dunkin' Donuts is encouraging people to create their own Hot Chocolate with delicious unsweetened flavors including caramel, coconut, blueberry, raspberry, French vanilla, hazelnut, cinnamon and toasted almond. Hot Chocolate lovers can choose one or more flavors to add to their Hot Chocolate or White Hot Chocolate to create their own personalized combination.
