The Dunkin’ Valentine's Day donuts were delicious in 2024! Better yet, these donuts were a better value than Krispy Kreme Valentine's Day donuts. We're talking over $1 less per donut better. At just $1.49 for a specialty donut, Dunkin' won the game on affordable breakfast treats for Valentine's Day.

So here’s what we saw on the Dunkin' winter menu, including their new Valentine's Day donuts. Oh and if you're curious what was on the Starbucks winter menu, we’ve got that too!

When Will the Dunkin' Winter Menu arrive in 2025?

I predict that the Dunkin' Winter Menu will arrive on Dec. 26, 2024. For the past two years they've dropped it on the last Wednesday in December. But this year the last Wednesday is Christmas Day.

I predict rather than waiting until the following Wednesday, which also happens to be New Year's Day, they'll drop it a day late on Thursday, Dec. 26. Expect announcements a week before the menu is available, on or around Dec. 18, 2024.

Valentine’s Day Donuts returned on January 31, 2024, and were just $1.49 apiece (prices varied).


I was so excited to see the return of the Brownie Batter Donut in 2024 for Valentine’s Day. And it was only $1.49, which is $0.10 more than last year, but still less than the $1.79 I predicted for this year.

Plus, you could save even more by buying them in a half or full dozen. A half dozen was $7.99 or $1.33 per donut and a full dozen was $17.99 or $1.17 per donut.

I also saw the Cupid’s Choice Donut at $1.49 each, and a host of other heart-shaped donuts for the same price which you can include in your dozen. Which brings me to my next point. . .

Dunkin' vs. Krispy Kreme Valentine's Day donuts: Dunkin' was a better value for specialty donuts.


If you were looking for other Valentine's Day treats, Krispy Kreme Valentine's Day Dough-Notes were released for 2024, but these babies were pricey. They announced four new flavors this year, but at $2.59 each, you paid $1.10 more per donut if you bought your speciality donuts at Krispy Kreme!

And if you bought a dozen? You paid $15.19 at Krispy Kreme, $1.27 per donut. That's still $.10 more per donut than you'd have paid at Dunkin'.

The rest of the Dunkin’ Winter Menu was available until February 20.


Beating our Starbucks’ Winter Menu by a few days, Dunkin’s winter offerings hit the menu nationwide on Dec. 27. That gave us just shy of two months to try everything Dunkin’ had to offer, including the Valentine’s themed treats.

Your Dunkin’ Rewards got you free Winter Menu items!


With Dunkin’ Rewards, you’ll get 10 points for every $1 you spend. You can get free items once you reach 150 points. The more points you earn, the better your rewards get. For example, you can get a free coffee at 500 points ($50 spent), and a free cold brew or Dunkin’ refresher when you spend 700 points ($70).

Dunkin’ Rewards isn’t the best loyalty program around because of the amount you have to spend in order to get a freebie, but if you’re already addicted to Dunkin’, it’s worth signing up and taking the rewards as you earn them. You’re spending the money anyway, right?
