While I’ve never had Dunkin Donuts iced coffee, you can get a free 16 oz cup (nice, no sample sizes here!) on May 15th from 10 AM-10 PM at any participating DD store.  I think I may have to try it out…althought I bet the lines will be crazy!

They’re offering their Dunkin’ Donuts premium regular or new Berry Berry-flavored iced coffee, which I was told in the pitch is “a luscious combination of blueberry and raspberry.”  

They also made a $5,000 donation to the Washington DC Police Athletic League in support of their Boys & Girls Club Youth Leadership Program.  But they’re giving away a total of $80K to the PAL/B&G Club (read more below).  So kudos to them for this. 

The company anticipates giving away nearly 4 million cups of its iced coffee on May 15.  I am told that this means:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts will use more than 88 million ice cubes on Free Iced Coffee Day, and will pour approximately 31,250 gallons of cream.
  • You could fill 7 Olympic-size swimming pools with the amount of coffee that will be used on Free Iced Coffee Day.
  • If you lined up each cup of iced If you lined up each cup of iced coffee served on Free Iced Coffee Day lid-to-lid, the line would stretch for more than 236 miles.
  • If you stack up each cup of iced coffee served on Free Iced Coffee Day, it would reach nearly 300 miles into the sky, the vantage point of a typical space shuttle orbit.

On Free Iced Coffee Day, Dunkin’ Donuts is honoring those who serve by donating $80,000 to the National Police Athletic League (NPAL) to support its Youth Leadership Program.  NPAL supports more than 2 million underprivileged youth through education, sports and leadership opportunities, and stresses the importance of community service and peer leadership in more than 350 chapters across the country. Sixteen select NPAL chapters will receive $5,000 from the Dunkin’ Donuts donation through a grant.  The NPAL chapters receiving grants to fund their local Youth Leadership Program include:  Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Las Vegas, Maine, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Rhode Island, Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg and Washington, DC.
