In Search of the Green Doughnut

One of life’s great mysteries is … why are there no green doughnuts?  (Except for the specials on St. Patrick’s Day)

Those who know me know that my favourite colour is green.  So, why not a green doughnut?  After all, there are wonderful flavours that we associate with the colour green.  Lime, Pistachio, Jalapeño, Green Tea.

This could all come to an end.  Check out this story – ARE YOU READY TO DEFEND YOUR DOUGH? TIM HORTONS DUELLING DONUTS CONTEST IS BACK, WITH AN ALL-STAR TWIST

You do it online using the Dueling Donut Configurator.

And, at your disposal, you have a ton of goodies for raw materials, including the flavours above!

What a Jalapeño doughnut looks like

Green just doesn’t get any respect.  It’s supposedly unlucky for race cars.  Maybe it’s because when things in the fridge, that aren’t naturally green, turn green, we throw them away?  From my university days, I know that they do eventually turn brown…

Maybe this is the year of the green?

If not, maybe we can at least answer another of life’s great questions – if they’re made of dough, why do many people call them donuts instead of doughnuts?

In the meantime, it is fun to work your way through the configurator and check all of the options available.

It will be interesting to see the winner of this contest when it closes in August.

This would have been an interesting contest to run during the school year.  There’s plenty of material for use in a Family Studies class, including the Tim Horton’s Nutrition Calculator.

One thought on “In Search of the Green Doughnut

  1. I thought “donuts” came from the US. I just walked by the Tim’s in our area last night that is getting a remodel. I noticed a sign that read “donuts” … and thought… but isn’t Tim Hortons a Canadian company? Probably saves room on the sign… ? They are made of dough, but where did the “nut” part come from? 🙂 Maybe Lisa knows…
    Hmm… a mint doughnut… Key Lime? I seldom eat doughnuts, but I might be tempted by those “green” flavours.
