A Glendale resident won the Adult category in the fifth annual Bashas’ Donut Flavor Craze Contest.
The winning donut is the Strawberry Shortcake, a recipe created by Angel Fuchs from Glendale. This sweet sensation includes one of summer’s favorite fruits – strawberries. It’s a donut filled with strawberry glaze, topped with strawberry icing, and dipped in a cookie crumb.
The winners were selected for National Donut Day on Friday, June 5.
Bashas’ invited both kids and adults to submit a donut flavor creation that encapsulates what they love most when it comes to having a guilty pleasure. From sweet to sour and everything in between, Bashas’ Supermarkets assembled a panel of celebrity judges to select the winning donut in each category based on overall taste plus a 100-word description of the donut idea, including the proposed name and key ingredients.
The winning donut will be featured in Bashas’ bakery cases across the state during the month of June, joining the grocer’s other made-from-scratch treats, including donuts, fritters, croissants, Danishes, brownies, frosted cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and more. Additionally, Bashas’ donated 10 percent of the proceeds from the sale of donuts at all Bashas’ in Arizona June 5 to support The Salvation Army.
In addition to being designated as the 2020 Bashas’ Donut Ambassadors, Fuchs will receive one dozen donuts every month for a year, $500 worth of prizes including a Bashas’ Gift Card, family fun activities and baking/cooking gadgets.
