It’s that time of year again. The week-long occurrence that has shark enthusiasts across the country glued to the TV and discussing one thing, and one thing only: sharks. Yes, I’m talking about Shark Week, television’s longest running must-see TV event, which is returning to the Discovery Channel in just two short weeks starting on August 10. To join in on this yearly feeding frenzy, Dunkin’ Donuts is partnering with Discovery Channel and asking both DD and shark fans across the country to, “Take a Bite, Take a Pic.”

Beginning today we’re inviting fans to get excited about Shark Week by channeling their inner shark. Anyone who shares a selfie on Twitter or Instagram of taking a bite out of their favorite breakfast item using the special hashtag #DDSharkWeek is eligible to win prizes including a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts Card and a Shark Week Prize Pack. Take a Bite, Take a Pic runs to the end of Shark Week, giving you plenty of chances to show us your best breakfast bites! 

Take a Bite, Take a Pic participants may also be featured on Discovery Channel’s “Shark After Dark,” as each night host Josh Wolf encourages viewers to visit the special website discovery.com/dunkin to vote for the “Dunkin’ Bite of the Nite.” Winners will be announced and their photos revealed on the show. The winning pictures also may be featured on Dunkin’ Donuts’ billboard in Times Square. No purchase necessary, must be 18+ to enter.

For those looking to go above and beyond, keep your eyes open for our special Shark Week inspired treat, the Shark Bite Donut!

If you spot them, gobble them up while supplies last!
