Toronto Life - - This City -

Hun­dreds of dough­nut-crazed Toron­to­ni­ans turned up on June 25 for the first Toronto Life Dough­nut Fes­ti­val pre­sented by Duf­ferin Mall. The event fea­tured wall-to-wall treats along the cor­ri­dors of the down­town mall, all from Toronto Life’s re­cent rank­ing of the city’s best dough­nuts. It was like a sugar-dusted scav­enger hunt with sweet-toothed snack­ers ea­gerly sam­pling the goods.

The first 200 people got to try Toronto Life’s topranked dough­nut—the Crunchie-in­spired choco­late­dipped con­coc­tion from Emma’s Coun­try Kitchen. Sorelle and Co. of­fered up gluten-free, ve­gan good­ness with its or­ange-blue­berry and choco­late-rasp­berry dough­nuts. Ca­plan­sky’s pro­vided a salty-sweet boost with its maple-beef-ba­con but­ter­milk dough­nut holes. The s’mores dough­nut from Jelly Mod­ern was a huge hit, as was Glory Hole’s toast-and-but­ter cre­ation. White Lily Diner went old-school with a clas­sic choco­late dip, Von Dough­nuts de­lighted sam­plers with its blue­berry-lime streusel dough­nut, and Janchenko’s Bak­ery served up its fa­mous plum-filled ponchiki.

David’s Tea and Tim Hor­tons pro­vided the liq­uid re­fresh­ment, while Aun­tie Anne’s doled out pret­zel bites and Star­bucks brought good-old ap­ple frit­ters.

Guests took self­ies in front of a huge dough­nut wall and In­sta­grammed spe­cialty dough­nuts cre­ated in hon­our of Duf­ferin Mall’s fash­ion re­tail­ers. Kids dec­o­rated their own dough­nuts at a DIY dough­nut sta­tion, and a por­tion of the af­ter­noon’s pro­ceeds was do­nated to Com­mu­nity Food Cen­tres Canada.

For a sweet end­ing, some at­ten­dees were able to bring home their own six-pack of dough­nuts. Here’s a look at some of the sugar-jacked revelry.
