Throughout the week, Dunkin' Donuts will also be sharing the love with fans
across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest with a series of fun and
colorful content inspired by Valentine's Day. Dunkin' Donuts has created a
special "DD Love" Pinterest board, offering fans inspiration on the small ways
they can surprise and delight the special people in their lives leading up to
Valentine's Day. Fans of Dunkin' Donuts on Instagram and Pinterest are also
encouraged to share photos of how they're spreading the love, using the
hashtag #DDLove. Dunkin' Donuts' Twitter followers are also in for a "sweet
heart" of a sweepstakes starting on Wednesday, February 13, which will be
announced by @DunkinDonuts.

In addition to making a great gift, coffee may actually play a part in helping
to brew romance. According to an independent survey of more than 1,000
Americans, commissioned by Dunkin' Donuts and conducted by GfK, the majority
of people (52%) said they think that going out for coffee with their
sweetheart can be just as romantic as going out for dinner. The survey also
shows that the choice for the most romantic flavor of coffee is French
Vanilla, followed by Hazelnut.

This Valentine's Day season, heart-shaped donuts have also returned to Dunkin'
Donuts. The Brownie Batter Donut, a heart-shaped donut filled with chocolaty
brownie batter filling, topped with chocolate icing and white sprinkles, and
theCupid's Choice Donut, a heart-shaped donut filled with Bavarian Kreme,
topped with strawberry flavored icing and a festive mix of pink, white and red
heart-shaped sprinkles, are available at participating Dunkin' Donuts
restaurants nationwide through the end of February.

Finally, Dunkin' Donuts has a new lineup of Dark Chocolate Mocha beverages to
keep chocolate lovers running on-the-go, any time of day, including Dark
Chocolate Mocha Coffee, Dark Chocolate Mocha Latte, Dark Chocolate Mocha
Frozen Coffee Coolatta® and Dark Hot Chocolate, available for a limited time
