Geckos kicks off epic global doughnut hunt

March 10, 2014 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Melbourne based travel company Geckos Adventures has launched a national search for a tasty new doughnut flavour inspired by one of the awesome countries featured in Geckos trips around the world.

SteveWroe-DoughnutThe GECKOS GLOBAL DOUGHNUT HUNT offers sweet-toothed travel junkies a chance to create their very own unique destination-based doughnut topping and see it brought to life by Melbourne’s finest purveyors of doughnut deliciousness Doughboys Doughnuts AND win a Geckos trip of their choice.

“Fancy hotels commission fancy chefs to make fancy food for fancy people, and since 1999 we’ve been looking for a way to tie Geckos’ love of travel in with our love of non-fancy food. When Doughboys came to town it was as if the stars had aligned. This is probably the best idea we’ve ever had,” said Steve Wroe, Geckos General Manager.

Entries for the Geckos Global Doughnut Hunt are open from now until 26 March and there’s no flavour off limits. Did anyone say pisco sour covered Peruvian doughnut? Or Mexican nacho doughnut dipped in cheese and guac?

PrintEntrants need to explain what their topping is and which country inspired their creation. The guys at Doughboys Doughnuts will choose a winning flavour with Geckos. Entries will be judged on creativity, flair, and deliciousness.

The winner will get their doughnut made especially by Doughboys Doughnuts, and it will be available for the public’s eating pleasure at a special doughnut launch event at The Mercat in Melbourne on Wednesday 9 April from 5pm. And the doughnuts will be FREE. It’ll be the best Wednesday 9 April Melbourne’s ever seen.

The competition is open to Australian residents only and if the winner doesn’t reside in Melbourne then Geckos will fly them out to attend the event, with one night’s accommodation chucked in too.

Competition closes on 26 March at 5pm and the winner will be announced on 1 April 2014 on the Geckos Blog and Facebook page.
