An 8-year-old from Maricopa was a winner in Bashas’ annual statewide “Donut Flavor Craze Contest,” creating a new doughnut that will be offered in stores starting Friday, National Donut Day.
Identified only as Glory, she won the kids category with a doughnut called “Spiky Cactus.” It is a raspberry-filled doughnut generally shaped like a saguaro with green icing and white sprinkles “so it looks like a cactus in bloom.”
The adult winner was a Chandler resident, who created the “Haboob Crème Filled,” which is filled with vanilla pudding and topped with crushed vanilla wafers.
Ten percent of Bashas’ doughnut sales on June 7 will go to the Salvation Army programs. Glory will receive a dozen doughnuts a month for a year and a Bashas’ gift card.
