News: Dunkin' Donuts - New Cupid's Choice Heart-Shaped Donuts

Taking a page from Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts also has a heart-shaped donut this Valentine's Day season. Dubbed the Cupid's Choice Donut and the Cupid's Cocoa Donut, each donut is available for a suggested price of 89 cents until the end of February.

The Cupid's Choice Donut is a heart-shaped yeast (AKA raised) donut filled with Bavarian cream and topped with strawberry icing and pink, white and red heart-shaped sprinkles.

The Cupid's Cocoa Donut is a heart-shaped chocolate yeast donut, filled with jelly and topped with chocolate icing and decorated with pink, white and red heart-shaped sprinkles.

Dunkin' is touting the new donut as the their first shaped-donut but that is only true of the U.S.; I saw a bunch of heart-shaped donuts (among others) at Dunkin' Donuts in Taiwan on the Asia Trip. Dunkin' Taiwan calls them "Love Donuts" and they're cream-filled donuts that are carried year round.

Still, I'm sure many-a-loved-one would love a heart-shaped donut at work to snack on.
