If your love language is donuts, you’ll want to listen up because Dunkin’s 2021 Valentine’s Day menu items just dropped, and they are as delicious as you’d expect. Some eagle-eyed Reddit users spotted the holiday treats last month. Now, Dunkin' has made it official, announcing its upcoming Valentine's Day delights for this year.

Per an emailed press release, Dunkin’ is bringing back some beloved Valentine’s Day items that'll put you in the ~loving spirit~ ASAP. First up, let’s talk donuts. Two holiday classics will be returning for Valentine’s Day 2021: the Cupid’s Choice Donut and the Brownie Batter Donut. The latter, as its name suggests, has a chocolate brownie batter-flavored buttercream filling on the inside and is frosted with chocolate icing. The Cupid’s Choice is filled with Bavarian Kreme and has strawberry-flavored icing. Both varieties are heart-shaped and topped with Bling Sprinkles, which are like regular sprinkles but shinier and, therefore, more delicious.

On the drink side, Dunkin’ is bringing back the Pink Velvet Macchiato and the Mocha Macchiato, both of which were first introduced last Valentine’s Day. The Mocha Macchiato combines espresso and chocolate for a drink that'll pair perfectly with any box of truffles. The Pink Velvet Macchiato drink features a red velvet cake flavor, as well as hints of cream cheese icing. In other words, it’s like a red velvet cake you can drink. If you get either drink iced, both have a layered look that is Insta-worthy if you’re OK with looking thirsty on main.


In addition to drinks and donuts, Dunkin' is taking Valentine's Day a step further this year with their Marriage is on The Menu contest. In partnership with I Do Drive Thru, Dunkin' is giving a handful of couples the opportunity and/or curse of getting married at a Dunkin' drive thru. What exactly does a Dunkin' wedding entail? Well, this one comes with a Dunkin' gift basket with wedding gear, a professional photographer, and a $500 cash prize. If that sounds like a donut dream come true, you can find the rules to enter here.

As you might expect, Dunkin's Valentine’s Day delights, like the holiday itself, will only be around for a limited time. Starting today (Jan. 27), you should see these menu items start to pop up at your local Dunkin'. You’ll have nearly all of February — until Feb. 23 to be exact — to have your fill of all things heart-shaped and pink.

If you're looking for other ways you can profess your love, check out Dunkin's new Dunkfetti donut. The rainbow sprinkle-speckled concoction pairs confetti cake batter with Dunkin's original glazed donut. Dunkin' is done being discrete — their donuts are just fried cupcakes with a hole in the middle. This newest creation is basically an excuse to eat Funfetti cake for breakfast. If that's not love, then I don't know what love is.
