donut eating contest toronto

Donut eating contest coming to Toronto

Ever watch that Treehouse of Horror in which Homer sells his soul for a donut and find yourself saying, "Yeah, I could see that"? On September 14, you'll be able to feed your insatiable hunger for donuts and stay firmly on this mortal plane via a brand-new donut eating contest. (Bonus: They're Through Being Cool's vegan donuts, so they're like totally healthy or something.)

The Bloordale bakery is actually using its dessert-making powers for good, leveraging the donut derby as a fundraiser for the Toronto Walk For Farm Animals. To enter, you'll need to raise $100 for the walk, then be one of the first 12 people to bring that cash through the bakery's door on D-day (the "d" stands for donut, naturally). The grand prize (aside from all the donuts you can eat, obviously) is a two-day stay at the Farm Sanctuary in upstate New York. There's also offerings from Sadie's Diner, Hot Beans, Lipstick & Dynamite and others.

You can also just watch the event and buy yourself a single donut to munch on -- if, you know, you're not super hardcore.
