ISLANDIA, N.Y. — Entenmann’s Bakery, a division of Bimbo Bakeries USA, has announced a new contest that will give one fan the chance to create the bakery’s newest donut flavor.
Entenmann’s is now accepting entries for its first-ever Fan Flavor Challenge & Sweepstakes. From now until June 14, fans can submit their donut flavor ideas at www.Entenmanns.com/FanFlavorChallenge for the chance to have their creation made during the 2019 holiday season for a limited time, $5,000 and a year’s supply of donuts.
To enter, each fan can use the online “Flavor Maker” to choose a base flavor, glaze and toppings. That person can then provide a creative name for the original creation along with a summary describing why he or she is an Entenmann’s donut fan.
Each entry will be reviewed based on portrayal of passion and fandom for Entenmann’s, creativity of donut flavor name, and donut flavor combination idea by a panel of qualified judges, including Chief Donut Officer Rana Al-Nahhas, who was named in a contest for last year’s National Donut Day. The grand prize winner will receive the aforementioned prizes. Two runners-up also will receive free donuts for a year and $1,000 each.
Fans can also share their original creations on Facebook or Twitter to receive one Sweepstakes entry to be placed into a random drawing for a chance to win the $1,000 Sweepstakes Grand Prize.
“At Entenmann's, we’re pretty nuts for donuts and are lucky to have a passionate fan base that loves the irresistible baked good as much as we do,” said Jason Amar, director of marketing at Entenmann’s. “We are constantly innovating and expanding our donut selection based on fan feedback and are excited to up the ante this year and let them decide our next offering in celebration of our favorite holiday, National Donut Day. We can’t wait to see — and taste — what they come up with.”
