Abstract (Document Summary)

The combatants were: Tim Horton's (Trafalgar Rd. Oakville), Country Style (Lakeshore Rd., Oakville), Mister Donut (143 Dundas St. W.) and the independents picked at random on a recent drive, The Old Mill Donuts and Desserts (Dundas St. W. near Burnhamthorpe Rd.), Princess Donuts (Dundas St. E and Dixie Rd. in Mississauga) and Caf Kunzle Donuts (400 Dundas St. E. in the Cooksville Landing Plaza).

Tim Horton's was awarded three gold medals. Two golds go to the Dutchies and one to the banana cream "jelly" doughnut. But Tim Horton's double chocolate was described by one judge as, "I don't know what they put in that! It has a weird taste." And the honey glazed [Tim Horton]'s doughnut was deemed "too oily" by another judge.

Caf Kunzle (the cheapest; six doughnuts and a coffee were $2.85) won a gold medal for its plain cinnamon doughnut that judge Ross M. Miller said was undoubtedly "good for your sex life." But the same doughnut received a BC, as well, for being too dry. The dry dough under the raised chocolate doughnut was a strike against it for another and the cruller was rated dry as well. One gold (2 points) and three negatives gave an over-all score of minus one.
