CANTON, MA (January 30, 2017) – With the season for sweethearts upon us, Dunkin’ Donuts is welcoming Valentine’s Day with a perfect pairing of sweet coffee flavors, along with the return of heart-shaped donuts, available in delicious new and returning varieties. For starters, Dunkin’ Donuts guests can enjoy the marriage of their favorite coffee with the flavors of fresh bakery treats, with new Fudge Brownie Swirl and Vanilla Cupcake Swirl flavored coffee. Both are available in Dunkin’ Donuts’ hot or iced coffees, lattes and macchiatos.

Dunkin’ Donuts is showing a lot of heart for its donut fans this season as well, bringing back its beloved heart-shaped donuts in two new Valentine’s Day varieties. The new Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Heart Donut is a heart-shaped donut with raspberry filling, frosted with chocolate icing and drizzled with strawberry-flavored icing. The new Brownie Batter Crumble Heart Donut is a heart-shaped donut with brownie batter flavored buttercreme filling, frosted with chocolate icing and sprinkled with brownie crumble.

For an additional donut delight for that special someone, this season Dunkin’ Donuts is bringing back the Fudge Croissant Donut. A favorite for chocolate lovers, it combines the brand’s famous glazed croissant donut with decadent fudge filling, topped with chocolate and white icing drizzle. All of Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee and donut menu items for Valentine’s Day season are available beginning today for a limited time at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide.
