Join Dunkin’ Donuts in Celebrating National Apple Pie Day!

By Jessica Gioglio

What’s warm, delicious and takes being called, “flaky,” as a compliment? Answer: Dunkin’ Donuts’ Warm Apple Pie. In honor of National Apple Pie Day on Friday, May 13, we’re making it as easy as apple pie to celebrate today, whether you’re in a Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant, or tweeting with us on Twitter.                                                                                                              


Dunkin' Donuts' Warm Apple Pie

To commemorate the apple of our eye on the Dunkin’ Donuts Hearty Snacks menu, we’re offering followers of @DunkinDonuts on Twitter the chance to win a $50 Dunkin’ Donuts Card by guessing what kind of apples Dunkin’ Donuts uses in its Warm Apple Pie, now available at participating restaurants nationwide. Anyone who offers a correct guess of one of the two types of apples Dunkin’ Donuts uses, plus the hashtag #ApplePieDDay, is eligible to win. The winner will be selected at random and announced at 1:30 p.m. EST on Friday, May 13 by @DunkinDonuts. Click here for additional contest terms and conditions.

Served warm, our handheld-sized baked Apple Pie features a flaky crust topped with cinnamon sugar and is filled with two delicious apple varieties. Wondering what those two apple varieties are? Nice try - we’ll update this blog entry after the contest!. When developing our Warm Apple Pie, our culinary team, led by Executive Chef Stan Frankenthaler, specifically wanted to make a delicious version of this classic treat that is easy to enjoy for our guests on-the-go, but also thought up a unique offering for people who couldn’t imagine a Warm Apple Pie without a scoop of ice cream.


The result? Our very first Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combo offering:  Apple Pie a la Mode, which pairs Dunkin’ Donuts Warm Apple Pie with 2.5 ounces of Baskin-Robbins’ vanilla soft-serve ice cream topped with a drizzle of Caramel Praline. With more than 1,100 combination restaurants throughout the country, click here to find a Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins combination store near you!
