If you have a talent for writing love poems and a love for doughnuts, this year's love-themed Dunkin' Donuts sweepstakes might be the tastiest way to show that special someone how much you care. And for all you marriage-minded significant others out there, it might even be the perfect way to take the next step in your relationship.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, Dunkin' Donuts has launched its inaugural Happily Ever Dunkin' sweepstakes, offering South Florida residents a chance to win a voucher for a diamond engagement ring.
Now through February 5, anyone who lives in Broward, Palm Beach, or Miami-Dade counties can visit happilyeverddsofla.com and share in 250 words or less what makes their love story unique. The winner will receive a $3,000 voucher courtesy of Tobak Diamond Co. of Boca Raton.
So maybe you don't need to buy a diamond. That's OK. If all your sweetheart needs is a little sugar in anticipation of Valentine's Day doughnut gifting, South Florida Dunkin' Donuts are taking orders too. Area residents can skip the holiday rush by pre-ordering doughnuts by the dozen — just call ahead to your local restaurant 24 hours before the pick-up date to place your order.
Valentine's Day-themed treats include seasonal heart-shaped doughnuts like the Brownie Batter Heart, a doughnut stuffed with brownie-batter-flavored buttercream and topped with chocolate icing and confetti heart sprinkles; the Cookie Dough Heart, filled with cookie-dough-flavored buttercream and topped with chocolate icing and chocolate chips; and the Cupid's Choice, filled with Dunkin's Bavarian Kreme and topped with strawberry-flavored icing.
