Dunkin’ Donuts Valentine Giveaway

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Dunkin’ Donuts is introducing two new coffee flavors and heart-shaped donuts. And I’m giving away a $25 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card to a lucky reader!

That’s me in the hat. Shawna dressed up for the occasion!

It’s no secret that I am a huge Dunkin’ Donuts fan, and that I’m overjoyed to have a Dunkin’ Donuts location move in right here at Lindero Canyon and Thousand Oaks Blvd. (They’ve been here for a few months now and I will confess I’ve only walked there once but I’ve driven plenty of times.) I actually stood in line at 4:00 am waiting for it to open with a girlfriend who was crazy enough to drive there with me that early morning!

Anyway, I am now super excited to share the latest sweet treats you will find when you visit. First, the heart-shaped donuts, which I expect to be waiting for me when I come down for breakfast on Valentine’s Day morning (someone please tell my husband):

The new Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Heart Donut is a heart-shaped donut with raspberry filling, frosted with chocolate icing and drizzled with strawberry-flavored icing. The new Brownie Batter Crumble Heart Donut is a heart-shaped donut with brownie batter flavored buttercreme filling, frosted with chocolate icing and sprinkled with brownie crumble. Finally, Dunkin’ Donuts is also serving the classic Cupid’s Choice Donut in participating locations. This festive treat is a heart-shaped donut filled with Bavarian Crème, topped with strawberry flavored icing and a festive mix of pink, white and red heart-shaped sprinkles.

If those aren’t sweet enough for you, why not drink them in a cup? The new Fudge Brownie Swirl and Vanilla Cupcake Swirl flavored coffees are available in hot or iced coffees, lattes and macchiatos. There’s also a seasonal favorite donut returning, the Fudge Croissant Donut, which is basically a glazed donut filled with chocolate and topped with icing. I’m writing this at dinnertime. This is dangerous.

Are you as excited about Dunkin’ Donuts being here as I am? Actually, even if you’re not local, but you have a Dunkin’ Donuts near you, you should be excited because I am giving away a $25 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card right here on this site. I actually don’t even use the physical card anymore. I downloaded the app and I load money on to my account whenever it gets too low, and now I just pay with the scan code on my app. It’s so easy! (And also dangerous!)

To enter to win the $25 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card, simply leave a comment on this post (not Facebook!) by 11:59 PM on Monday, February 13. Winner will be chosen by random drawing from qualifying entries. As soon as I receive your mailing address, the card will be mailed to you. Extra entry if you follow Agoura Hills Mom on Instagram or like my page on Facebook (just let me know in your comment).

Rumor Confirmed: Dunkin’ Donuts Coming to Westlake Village

 

Neighbors, it is confirmed. Dunkin’ Donuts is coming to Westlake Village!

I might have a tear of joy in my eye as I type this.

Coming soon!

I received a wonderful voice mail message today from a rep at CBRE, the property management company for North Ranch Gateway, otherwise referred to as the TJ Maxx plaza at Thousand Oaks and Lindero Canyon. We’ve all seen the construction and facelift that plaza is getting. My kids remark on it every day as we drive past, and it’s a source of curiosity for everyone in town.

The rep confirmed that Dunkin’ Donuts will occupy part of the building that once housed Barbecues Galore. (The other part will be a Bank of America.)

Vacancies are filling up at North Ranch Gateway!

The rep also said that a nail salon and a Brazilian grill will be moving into the plaza, and that they’re in talks with some other restaurants as well. Their targeted timeline is to have these businesses open and ready for business by the end of the year or early in 2017. Here is how I feel about this:

I was pretty excited about finally making my pilgrimage to the Santa Monica @DunkinDonuts. #donuts

Stay tuned for more news and information as we get closer to this glorious day. (This post is brought to you only by my lifelong love of their coffee and glazed donuts.)

Hallelujah, Dunkin’ Donuts Is Here

Hot and Iced CoffeeOkay, not here, here. But close. The first LA-area Dunkin’ Donuts is scheduled to open at 5AM on September 2 in Santa Monica.

As part of the grand opening celebration, the first 100 people in line will receive a Dunkin’ Donuts tote bag filled with special items and the first person in line will be rewarded with free coffee for one year.

That is actually the kind of thing that the pre-child me would consider standing in line for. As for me now, well, even a new DD in town isn’t enough for me to leave the Bubble on a Tuesday morning (and finding parking there, GAWD) just to get some coffee. (And donuts. People keep talking about the donuts but true Dunkin’ lovers know what’s really important.)

Yeah yeah. Those are tasty, too.

Yeah yeah. Those are tasty, too.

Another cool thing about this opening is that they are giving $5,000 to the LA Food Bank. What a great way to celebrate.

So, anyway. In other news, Baskin Robbins is selling one-scoop ice cream cones for $1.31 on Sunday August 31. Because…heatwave and holiday weekend. Or…ice cream. Nuff said.
