Valentine's day donuts @ Brookfield Place

Did anyone score one of these unforgettably delicious donuts? And if so, do you know who made them? The packaging didn't seem to indicate a bakery name and I must have more! PS they were free and being given away in the lobby.

        Laughing at (with) the exuberance!! : )

        I wish I could help out. Unfortunately it appears they didn't market the event let alone the doughnut supplier.

    1. Honestly guys, who makes something awesome and hands out thousands of wicked delicious donut delights to Canadians no less, and does it anonymously? Why don't you want me to buy your stuff? And rave to my friends? WHY??? In a pretty box no less. Seriously.

          Hmmmmm ....who indeed?

          1. re: petek

            KK probably...if not it's the 7-11 source.

            1. re: justsayn

              Who else could afford to do that. I was gonna say Tim Hortons but the donut looks way better than any TH donut I've ever seen.

              1. re: petek

                Exactly. Plus I have never known them to lose out on a branding opportunity.....ever.

                1. re: justsayn

                  Interesting..I wonder if KK is trying to make a comeback up here?

                2. re: petek

                  It was like a gourmet Krispy Kreme in the glaze department, but a heavier, chewier donut. But yet still delicate. Hands down not Timmy's.

                  1. re: tara100299

                    Well whoever it is, they've succeed in creating quite the buzz, they've got 4 people talking about it already! Brilliant marketing! :D

          2. why don't you call Brookfield Place property management and ask them?

              But what if they're in on this secret marketing thing, then what? :D

              1. re: millygirl

                I just can only leave a message if it's not an emergency...but it IS a donut 911!

              2. My guess is it was Jelly Modern. They have tweeted numerous times that their largest Valentine's order was for 12,000 doughnuts.
                Start your search by calling and asking them.

                  Guessing? That's crazy talk! Ain't nobody got time fo' that! This is a donut EMERGENCY!
                  But seriously though you're probably right. :)

                  1. re: petek

                    If I were experiencing a doughnut emergency I would immediately get myself to VON! They will be at least as good as what was given out this morning.

                    1. re: cheesymama

                      Thankfully VON is in my hood. I meant to get there last weekend...truthfully, it's less of a stomach/craving emergency and more of a "But why is this a secret donut?" emergency. Inquiring minds need to know and all that.

                      1. re: cheesymama

                        Cheesymama for the win! I sent my friend down to Brookfield's office, they were from Jelly Modern, the reason for no branding? Because Brookfield paid for the haul. So I guess they didn't want to advertise anything other than their own generosity! And fair enough....phew! But otherwise that was a fun mystery.

                      1. re: justsayn

                        I agree, the filled hole thing seems to be their friend says he had one that was jelly filled.

                        1. re: justsayn

                          Well that mystery didn't last very long did it?
                          Way to go cheesymama!

                          1. re: petek

                            Silly they didn't include their name?

                            1. re: justsayn

                              Maybe it was part of the deal they made with Brookfield Place no branding allowed but they still bought thousands of d-nuts..

                              1. re: petek

                                I bet its because they didn't want to piss off the non-JM tenants...or worse, break the lease agreements.

                          2. re: justsayn

                            Amazing detective work justsayn! I'm totally impressed :)

                            1. re: kwass

                              Sorry to burst your bubble kwass..but it was Detective cheesymama who broke this case wide open...

                              1. re: petek

                                Oops. I thought it was her guess, but justsayn found the evidence. Either way, kudos to both :)

                        2. KWASS ALERT!!!!! You may wish to try JM's plain glaze!! Looks like they may be making improvements??
