A 10-year-old from Surprise won the Youth category in the fifth annual Bashas’ Donut Flavor Craze Contest.
Ten-year-old Makenzie chose to combine a burst of flavors into one delicious donut for the kids’ category. Her Sprinkle Explosion creation is a donut filled with buttercream and sprinkles, topped with white icing, swirled with drops of color, topped with sprinkles.
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, Makenzie 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.
