Tim Hortons narrows the Duelling Donuts contest to 8 finalists, includes The Lumberjack and The Cookie Jar

One of these glorious donuts below will soon to be added to the Tim Hortons menu, but first they must compete against each other in a fierce battle to the end. Tim Hortons Duelling Donuts Competition has narrowed down the list and it seems like the most creativity is coming from Ontario:

  • Isabelle Scantland Lebel of Gatineau, Quebec, creator of The Pistachio & White Chocolate
  • Judd Mah of Edmonton, Alberta, creator of The Lumberjack
  • Nikola Kostic of Toronto, Ontario, creator of The Big Canadian Red
  • Lauren Armstrong of Toronto, Ontario, creator of The Lemmy Tell Ya About Cheesecake
  • Jennifer Brown of Glencoe, Ontario, creator of The Love Reese’s To Pieces
  • Danny Hawtin of Waterdown, Ontario, creator of The Cookie Jar
  • Nancy Angus of Oro-Medonte, Ontario, creator of The Skor Brownie Points
  • Jennifer Veenvliet of Barrie, Ontario, creator of The Ice Cream Sundae

The judges — Jason Priestley, Jann Arden, Anna Olson and Ben Mulroney — will meet at Tim Hortons head office on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 where each of the finalists will pitch their donut to be included in Tim Hortons history. After some thought, the celebrity judges will narrow these down to four and on Monday, August 18th, Tim Hortons open up the polls for the public to decide.

The winner receives a $10,000 cheque. “Once again, we were blown away by the creativity of our guests. We definitely had our work cut out for us to select only eight finalists, and we’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the over 76,000 guests who took part in the contest,” says Tammy Martin, Vice President Marketing, Food and Merchandise, Tim Hortons. “Congratulations to our eight finalists. We’re excited to meet everyone and hear their stories in person, and we’re also thrilled to have Jason, Jann, Anna and Ben be a part of it.”
