A Hamilton native is the winner of the Tim Horton’s Duelling Donuts contest, which was inspired by an episode of How I Met Your Mother.
Andrew Shepherd, who was born in Hamilton, and now lives in Scarborough, dreamed-up a donut that melds together chocolate, caramel and pecans.
It beat out 63 thousand other entries and earned him a $10,000 cash prize.
A panel of judges that included actor Jason Priestley, whittled down the pool of applicants to eight finalists earlier this month.
As part of his first place finish, Shepherd’s Tortoise Torte will be added to the Tim Horton’s menu.
