Be the first to bag a Golden Doughnut at Birds
Customers at Birds Bakery could win a prize if they find a special ‘Golden Doughnut’ as part of a new giveaway launching in-store this weekend.
To celebrate National Doughnut Week, which starts on Saturday 7th May 2022, Birds is replacing the trademark cream filling in its Caramel Doughnut range with a ‘golden’ orange curd in a small number of doughnuts, turning them into a sought-after, prize-winning treat.
Two Golden Doughnuts will be available to find every day of National Doughnut Week, hidden in the usual batch of Caramel Doughnuts in stores across the East Midlands.
Anyone who bites into their treat and discovers the fruity filling will win a £10 voucher to spend at the popular bakery. All they have to do is take a picture of the golden filling and post it to Instagram or Facebook, tagging Birds Bakery and saying where and when the doughnut was purchased.
The first two special doughnuts will be in store this Saturday, with the last Golden Doughnuts being delivered on Saturday 14 May 2022. Winning pictures need to be posted before Saturday 21 May 2022.
Mike Holling, sales and marketing director at Birds Bakery, said:
“Our Caramel Doughnuts are one of our best-sellers - last year alone, we sold over 800,000 - so we thought it would be the perfect choice for our charity campaign.
“Shoppers across the East Midlands love our popular doughnut, and with the opportunity to win a voucher for more, we’re sure they’ll need no excuse to stock up over the next week!”
National Doughnut Week is a nation-wide initiative from The Children’s Trust, which supports children with brain injuries. Birds is giving a 20p donation to the charity from every individual doughnut purchase made throughout the week. A special limited-edition Chocolate Flake Doughnut will also be available to buy for one week only - with a charity donation of 25p from every purchase.
Birds Bakery raised a total of £12,500 during National Doughnut Week 2021, and has supported The Children’s Trust for more than 18 years.
“As well as our limited-edition golden doughnuts, we’re selling a selection of delicious flavours including a zesty Sicilian Lemon and classic jam version, alongside our special Chocolate Flake Doughnut. Whichever flavour you choose, proceeds from every doughnut purchased during the week will go towards supporting a fantastic cause.”
Birds Bakery has 62 stores across the region. Many Birds products, can also be ordered online and delivered to customers’ homes using either the Birds By Post or Birds At Home delivery services.
Those finding a Golden Doughnut will need to post a picture to either Instagram or Facebook, tagging Birds Bakery:
