Aug. 28, 2014, Oakville, Ont. – The wait is over. After 76,500 doughnut creations, an
eight-finalist showdown in front of a celebrity panel, and the public
weighing in, the Love Reese's to Pieces doughnut has won the Tim Hortons Duelling Donuts contest.

Created by Jennifer Brown of Glencoe, Ont., and made with a chocolate yeast base, the Love Reese's to Pieces doughnut
is filled with crème brûlée, covered in chocolate fondant and white
dots, and topped with peanuts and peanut butter cup candy.

"I saw firsthand Jennifer's passion for her
doughnut, and with that irresistible combination of Reese's® Peanut Butter
Cups and crème brûlée, I know Canadians made the right decision," said judge Jason Priestley in a news release.
"Year one of Duelling Donuts was tough to top, but thanks to Ben, Jann,
Anna, Jennifer, and the creative finalists, this year was bigger and
better than I could have imagined, and I'm happy I was a part of it."

The inspiration for Jennifer's doughnut came in the wee hours of the
night when she couldn't sleep and was looking to pass some time. "I
imagined a few doughnut flavours that I would love to try," she says. "A
peanut doughnut is an untapped resource – something that's hard to find,
but that we all want!"
