A Hamilton native is one of eight finalists to design a new Tim Horton’s donut.
Andrew Shepherd’s combination of chocolate, caramel and pecans — dubbed the “Tortoise Torte” — has been shortlisted from 633 thousand contest entries by the company’s executive team as well as actor Jason Priestley and e-talk host Ben Mulroney.
The Duelling Donuts competition also carries a 10 thousand dollar cash prize.
Shepherd plans on taking his wife on a cheese and chocolate tour of Switzerland if he wins the contest.
Voting is underway and open to all Canadians at DuellingDonuts.ca
