Yes, we’re already running our cute-baby-with-food contest. But what about those of us who don’t have kids? Or just don’t have attractive kids? Never fear — ES, along with our favorite guilty pleasure, Dunkin’ Donuts, has a contest just for you.
For the second year in a row, DD is allowing the public to create a brand new donut from a variety of doughs, fillings and toppings on their web site. Entrants will have a chance to win $12,000 and to have your designer donut sold at Dunkin’ Donuts stores around the country.
Now, we realize the DD contest will be hard for you ESers because they’ve inexplicably left off ingredients like 100% pure cocoa powder and basil-infused truffle oil. Or even bacon. WTF! Well, when you’re done making your Dunkin’ Donut, it’s time to get even crazier and design The Endless Simmer Donut.
What ingredients would make up the donut of your wildest dreams? Feel free to indulge your inner gourmet by using some more…non-conventional ingredients along with the usual donut trappings. Want to add a sweet potato filling or foie gras mousse to your glazed dount? Have at it. Style points will be given for creativity. Paste your dream donut combo in the comments below or fire up an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we don’t have another 12 grand for you, our winning ES donut-maker will be taking home a $60 Dunkin’ Donuts Gift Card. We’ll be picking the cream of the crop and then a special guest judge will decide who takes home that prize. The contests — both ours and the big one — end on March 8th, so get cooking!
