    Fast-food chain celebrates 60th anniversary with doughnut design contest.

    CANTON, Mass. -- Dunkin' Donuts small lattes will be available for 99 cents at participating Dunkin' Donuts locations throughout the New York tri-state area for a limited time. The 99-cent lattes are available in all flavor varieties, including the new White Chocolate Latte, and can be purchased either hot or iced.

    "The 99-cent latte offer generated great excitement from our loyal guests last year and we are thrilled to bring it back to the New York tri-state area," said Missy Maio, manager of field marketing for Dunkin' Donuts in the Central Atlantic Region. "Dunkin' Donuts is committed to providing our guests with high-quality beverages at affordable prices."

    The new White Chocolate Latte is one of several new "Chocolate Lovers" offerings. Throughout February, participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants also will offer the new Triple Chocolate Donut, Triple Chocolate Muffin and the Chocolate Brownie.

    Participating shops include those in the following New York counties: New York: Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester. Shops in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren, N.J., and Fairfield, Conn., also are participating.

    The chain also is kicking off its yearlong 60th anniversary celebration with the return 'Create Dunkin's Next Donut Contest.' Founded in 1950, Dunkin' Donuts is inviting customers around the world to join the party with festivities planned throughout the year.

    For the second year in a row, Dunkin' Donuts is inviting doughnut lovers to channel their imagination and love for doughnuts for the chance to win $12,000 and have their personal creation sold at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants nationwide. Last year, the grand prize winning doughnut, "Toffee for Your Coffee," was chosen from among 130,000 entries submitted online for the inaugural contest.

    Beginning today through March 8, visitors to www.DunkinDonuts.com/donut can create their own virtual doughnut masterpiece from a variety of flavors, shapes, toppings and fillings. New interactive elements have been added to the contest Web site, providing entrants more options to save their creations and share their tasty treats with friends and family. A dozen finalists will be chosen by a panel of Dunkin' Donuts judges to travel to Dunkin' Donuts University, the worldwide training center for the company in Massachusetts this spring for a bake-off, which will be facilitated by Dunkin' Brands Executive Chef Stan Frankenthaler. This year, JetBlue signed on to be the official airline of the "Create Dunkin's Next Donut" contest and will offer free airfare to contest finalists flying out of JetBlue cities to the bake-off. The public will be invited to vote for their favorite finalist online beginning April 19. The grand prize winner will be unveiled on National Donut Day, June 4.

    For its birthday, Dunkin' Donuts created a full line of commemorative retro packaging that incorporates a new 'Happy 60th BirthDDay!" logo and historical brand logos. Beginning in March, the company will offer a selection of vintage-themed t-shirts and retro Dunkin' Donuts Cards at www.DunkinDonuts.com, as well as at participating restaurants while supplies last.

    Dunkin' Donuts also will host birthday celebrations at the original store located in Quincy, Mass., and at nearly 60 new restaurants that are scheduled to open over the next several weeks in 10 countries from the United States to China to Chile to Germany.

    "Dunkin' Donuts' 60th birthday is an opportunity for us to honor our heritage and commitment to menu innovation, both of which have made us the beloved brand that we are today," said John Costello, chief global customer and marketing officer at Dunkin' Brands.
