    Voracious Vegan

    The Apple Razz Vegan Jazz
    By Liz from Columbus, OH
    "I wanted to do something with classic flavors that was different at the same time. My inspiration was a chocolate raspberry pie with a graham cracker crust. The apple in the jelly will add a nice tartiness, and the raised dough will give it a lighter base. This donut will appeal to a large demographic since it is not super sweet but still is a lot of fun. The best part is that it could easilly be made without animal products!"

    Mexican Chocolate Vegalicious
    By Gretchen in Hurley, NY
    "I chose a chocolate cake donut with cinnamon sugar and entitled it "Mexican Chocolate Vegalicious." Just because I'm vegan doesn't mean I don't love a good donut, and one that takes our health, our environment, and the animals we share the planet with into consideration--and which tastes as good or even better than a donut loaded with animal products--would show DD's customers how great they really are."

This donut will help DD extend fair treatment of farmers into fair treatment of animals & the earth."

    Cruelty-Free Fun in the Sun
    by Anna in Stewartstown, PA
    "I've always loved a good jelly donut. Mine is in keeping with the classic raspberry fruit jelly tradition with a new twist. The addition of pomegranate gives the filling extra antioxidants as well as depth of flavor. With a coat of powdery lemon sugar this donut will be a refreshing treat for any spring or summer day. The omission of egg, dairy, & gelatin will only make this donut lighter & more delicious. A sure classic."

By creating this wonderful donut without animal products, we can show the world (through donuts) that all you need is love - sweet vegan strawberry love, that is! This would be the perfect donut to give your sweetheart (or future sweetheart!) because it will show them that you care enough not to oppress animals for their dessert treats."

But don't just break this bad boy out in April for Earth Day. The classic apples and peanut butter is good all year (as is the message, "Go Green! Go Vegan!"). I can't wait to try it!"

Like many others, eggs and dairy are not part of my diet.  Each morning I either hop into the local cafe near my house, or even to Starbucks near work.  Yesterday at Starbucks, I was one of four people getting a soy beverage during the five minute wait in line!  I also got lucky with a nice pack of Dr. Lucy’s gluten-free vegan cookies.  It would be nice to have such options at DD, but it doesn't seem to be up to speed with current customer interest.  I'm not looking for $12000, although it would be great.  It would be nice though, to have a donut! If you build it, they will come"

No soy milk for coffee, sweets are out, and I'm not sure what is in the hash browns. Bagels are no fun plain unless you are really starving, and the "juice" coolattas are loaded with sugar. It would be great if DD's would start incorporating a compassionate menu!"

    by Candace in Winchester, VA

    Choco-Vegan Mint Donut
    by Reba in North Carolina
    "Dunkin' Donuts' warm chocolate cake donut topped with creamy vanilla frosting and cool green mint sprinkles are a terrificic holiday treat or just an anytime tasty perk with perky taste!  Think cool snow-topped mountains in the summer or fresh evergreen ferns in the winter; a simple, compassionate creation."

    Vegan Cherry Bomb
    by Faith in Seattle, WA
    "Veganism is catching on and now is the time to get in on that action.  Just like the beloved chocolate covered cherry cordial, the Vegan Cherry Bomb is destined to be a classic.  So pretty in pink, don't you think?"

    By Ellen in Johns Creek, GA
    "No animal products were used to create this masterpiece...so you can enjoy the amazing flavor knowing you did not jeopardize your principles...DD will join progressive companies worldwide by showing they care!  Nothing would go better with a large DD coffee than the Vegan SS!"

    Peanut Butter Vegan Donut
    By Kathy in London, UK
    "I wanted to be able to eat at Dunkin Donuts again when I come home from living overseas. Since I'm vegan, most items at Dunkin Donuts are no longer acceptable to me. Thanks for letting me create my very own vegan donut!"

    Vegan Almond Mocha Cappucino
    by Natalie in Chicago, IL

    Vegan PB&J Jamboree
    Melisser Elliott in San Francisco, CA
    "This donuts raises the bar, not only because of it's shape, but because it's a cruelty free confection, the 1st of its kind from Dunkin Donuts! Take the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a naturally vegan treat, to new heights in donut form. It's a fun treat for ALL ages!"

    Vegan Vanilla Chai
    by Jan in Oakville, Ontario
    My inspiration includes my favorite tea, love of chocolate and the need for a donut that fits my vegan beliefs.  Farm animals are so wonderful, and a donut that shows them compassion I'd buy in an instant.

    The Voluptuous Vegan
    By Janelle from Medford, OR
    "Because I never eat animal products, I could never buy any Dunkin’ Donuts.  But if you offered this round beauty, with its luscious maple frosting and fragrant roasted-almond topping (minus all eggs and dairy), I would dash into the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts at every opportunity and get a dozen for myself, to dunk in my gourmet coffee – and a dozen for my friends and coworkers."

    Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate
    By Jon from Virginia
    "After eating an incredible vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cupcake, I was inspired to try similar flavors.  The three-way chocolate will nicely complement the pumpkin, and the oreo filling will add a nice creamy finish.  It would be amazing to see Dunkin Donuts producing delicious, innovative vegan donuts!  In addition to drawing in vegans (obviously), they would likely be popular with people allergic to eggs and/or dairy."

    Chocolate Island Party Donut
    By Katherine from Berkeley, CA
    "This donut is a chocolate-cream-filled donut with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles. It has a delicious coconut-milk chocolate creamy pudding filling and the rainbow sprinkles make it a party!"

    Friendly Vegan
    By Claire from La Crescenta, CA
    "This friendly vegan donut is full of flavor and empty of cruelty (it fell out the hole in the middle).  Egg, dairy, and animal product free, this donut is for the kids who wants to make friends with everyone: puppies, kitties, cows, chickens, and even girls!"

    Joe's Girl
    By Cheryl from Tampa, FL

    Vegan Blackberry Pie
    By Carey from Long Beach, CA
    "When I was a little girl my dad and I would go on long walks in the woods and pick blackberries. Sometimes we'd come back with enough for a pie, usually we'd eat them all before we got back home. This donut represents those simpler, innocent times. Just blackberries, sweet glaze, and graham cracker crumbles make it simple. Being vegan, with no eggs, dairy, or gelatin, makes it innocent, compassionate, and cruelty free."

    Vegan Chai-Spiced
    By Leinana from Brooklyn, NY
    "My vegan Chai-Spiced donut (vanilla chai creme filling, white icing, and chocolate sprinkles) was inspired by my favorite beverage, a vanilla soy chai latte. No reason why vegans can't also indulge in a delicious sweet treat - even sweeter knowing that it's cruelty free!"

    Vegan Heaven
    By Vicky from Coquitlam, BC, Canada
    "I would love to see a Peanut Butter Donut with  Banana Cream inside and real Dark Chocolate and peanuts on top!!  All my favorite things in one!! YUM,YUM :) I would love Dunkin' Donuts to do a cruelty free donut to show the WORLD they do care enough to add a totally Vegan Donut to their menu!"

    Vegan Love
    By David from New York, NY
    "As a kid, I ate Dunkin Donuts 3 times a week. I always LOVED the strawberry icing donuts. Then one day, I made the decision to go vegan because I wanted to make a difference for animals. In doing so, I joined millions of people who don't consume dairy or eggs for health, animal welfare, environmental, or religious reasons and had to give up my favorite donuts. I want Dunkin Donuts to give me some vegan love."

    Vegan Caramel Macchiato
    By Gergianne from Austin, TX
    "Mmmmm just like my favorite coffee! A chocolate cake donut, filled with a coffee flavored creme, and topped with caramel frosting. All of this packed into a convenient stick shape, perfect for dunking in your morning coffee! Even tastier- all vegan ingredients, so you can enjoy your morning routine in a guilt-free, cruelty-free moment of bliss!"

    Vegan Chocolate Bliss
    By Jennifer from Bellport, NY
    "I have fond memories of visiting Dunkin Donuts as girl, and I hope DD will start offering donuts that leave out the eggs & dairy ingredients. Better for our bodies, for the animals, for the environment! Inspired by the chocolate cake my mom used to bake, this donut features walnuts, coconut, and a good measure of compassion.  Ask any professional vegan baker--eggs and dairy are unnecessary! Bring on the vegan donuts, DD!"

    Vegan Coconut Creme Puff
    By Heather from Olympia, WA
    "Being vegan is just good for your soul--and your body! A tasty, creamy, coconuty vegan donut would show everyone that you can have your cake, and be nice to the animals too. ;) Plus, it's probably a good marketing decision!"

    By Christine from New York City, NY
    "It is a cake donut made into a stick with coffee icing filled and white icing on top for a mock cappacino in a stick!!! Of course using all organic vegan incredients. Beet sugar, Ener-G Egg Subsitute, Vegan margarine, Vegan baking chocolate and soymilk or rice milk for the icing….they are so yummy and its like eating a cup of cappacino!!! And its compassion over killing and that is the very best part!!!"

    A Big Hunk o' Love

    By Rebecca Keller
    "This VEGAN donut was inspired by Elvis's love of Bananas and PB as well as his quote,"I ain't no saint, but I've tried never to do anything that would hurt my family or offend God." Vegan options are healthier for our families and friends and allow us to respect god's creatures. Also, I mean, who doesn't love PB and banana cream in a delicious cakey case of goodness?!  I know I sure do."

    Vegan Blackberry Bomb
    By Cassandra from Brooklyn, NY
    "I chose blackberry filling and strawberry icing because they go well together and are less-common flavors (thus, have the potential to generate a lot of interest). The purple sprinkles are jazz it up a bit and reinforce the rich color of the blackberries. As a compassionate consumer, I made the donut vegan, which would also be suitable for anyone with egg and dairy allergies that currently avoid donuts that aren't vegan."

    Creme-Filled Compassion
    by Brook in Alexandria, VA
    "Every ounce of this delicious donut is good for the planet, great for animals, and yes...it's even good for your health. Why? Because it's entirely vegan! So go ahead, eat two. Yummmm......"

    Vegan Jumpstart
    by Richard in Tulsa, OK
    "I call my creation the 'Vegan Jumpstart' because it would be made from all vegan ingredients and would be a great way to "jumpstart" the day. It would also jumpstart Dunkin's entry into the vegan market, a new market segament that would ensure Dunkin's future success."

    Benevolent Blueberry Sunrise
    by Mary in Bethlehem, PA
    "I created the benevolent blueberry sunrise! It is a blueberry cake donut coated with lemon sugar. This donut is reminiscent of one of my favorite morning treats- a vegan blueberry scone with lemon glaze. The donut is benevolent because, like my scones, it should be made cruelty free- that is, without eggs or milk. The sunny and bold combination of lemon and blueberries are the perfect start to any morning!"

    Vegan Pumpkin Dream
    by Danica in Memphis, TN
    "Spicy pumpkin with the creamy cheesecake kreme all topped off by chocolate frosting!!! YUM! As a vegan I would love to have vegan options at such a mainstream establishment! A soy latte and a Vegan Pumpkin Dream would be an awesome morning treat minus the cruelty!"

    Livin' La Vida Vegan
    by Linda in Boston, MA
    "This is a coconut and banana flavored creme filled donut with strawberry icing and sprinkles, made from 100% vegan sources - no dairy, egg or animal products of any kind. Inspired by compassion and a desire to have a healthier alternative available at Dunkin' Donuts. The uniqueness of this flavor combination would open up a new customer base for Dunkin' and make ANY Dunkin' customer do a little happy dance."

    The Cure

    by Terri from Los Angeles, CA
    "Dedicated to cancer survivors, this deliciously sweet and lightly crunchy donut struts the Susan G. Komen® pink coloring. Many don’t know that an animal-free diet cuts cancer and heart disease chances immensely, which is why this little cure is packed with all-natural vegan ingredients. With yummy dairy-free substitutes for cholesterol-laden products like eggs and butter, this is the ultimate treat to be enjoyed by all."

    Love Child Donut

    By Dory from Jacksonville, FL
    "I want this donut to be filled with compassionate fillings and no animal products. I would use soy based products and animal free binders. I think is about time Dunkin steps out of it's box, and makes a "green" statement about using more compassionate products not just for profit but for it's consumer's health, the environment and of course the animals. This donut LOVE CHILD can do it all."
