Vegan Doughnut Contest

Compassion Over Killing asks voters to weigh in on their favorite vegan doughnuts in nationwide contest.

After encouraging vegans across the country to submit cruelty-free doughnut recipes to Dunkin' Donuts annual donut contest, animal-rights group Compassion Over Killing (COK) has teamed up with Vegan Treats bakery to sponsor its own jelly-filled competition. Voting is currently open and runs through May 21, and the winning doughnut will be added to Vegan Treats menu as a limited-time special. After sifting through more than 90 submissions, a panel of experts, including vegan bloggers Erik Marcus and Michael Parrish DuDell, Vegan Treats' owner Danielle Konya, and VegNews' own Managing Editor Elizabeth Castoria narrowed the selection down to 12 cruelty-free finalists. Contenders range from classics such as Bavarian BeVegan to the more unique Strawberry Lemonade Love.
