Thursday, May 24, 2018

With summer on the way, it’s three cheers for donuts at Dunkin’, as the brand delights donut devotees with a trio of terrific ways to sweeten the start of the season. First, Dunkin’ Donuts will ring in one of its favorite days of the year, National Donut Day on Friday, June 1, by once again offering guests a free classic donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage. The offer is valid all day on June 1, at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide on classic donut favorites including Boston kreme, glazed, glazed chocolate and strawberry frosted with sprinkles.

Next, Dunkin’ Donuts is welcoming summer by cooking up not one but two new specialty donut varieties that truly take the cake. The new vanilla cake batter donut features vanilla-flavored cake batter filling, frosted with white icing and topped with confetti sprinkles. This vanilla treat is available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time beginning Monday, May 28. Select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants will also brighten donut fans’ days with the sweet summertime donut, a specialty donut featuring a sunshine design with blue icing, yellow icing drizzle and a glazed old-fashioned MUNCHKINS donut hole treat placed in the center.

Finally, at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants, the donut case will feature a summer celebration with new names and designs for some classic varieties, including:

• Party on: vanilla frosted donut with blue icing and confetti sprinkles
• Strawberry pectacular: strawberry frosted donut with confetti sprinkles
• Boston kreme bash: a classic filled donut with Bavarian creme filling, frosted with chocolate dipping icing and a blue icing drizzle
• Confetti craze: chocolate frosted donut with confetti sprinkles

National Donut Day was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June. Dunkin' Donuts has been serving guests signature donuts for 68 years. Dunkin’ Donuts is the #1 retailer of donuts in America, and sells more than 2.9 billion donuts and MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats annually worldwide. Within the United States, Dunkin’ Donuts offers a wide variety of delicious donuts, including beloved flavors such as Boston kreme, glazed, chocolate glazed cake and chocolate frosted.
