Donut Monster Giveaway!

The "We have 3000 followers on twitter" giveaways continue! This time, Donut Monster has been so kind as to donate a 6-pack of their amazing donuts to the winner!

Donut Monster is an amazing "Made in Hamilton" success story, with their donuts being made at the Kitchen Collective, delivered by bike by THAAT Co-op and sold by local cafes and stores throughout the city. Willy Dog's GTO even uses Donut Monster donuts to make their very own creation - Donut Monster Bread Pudding!

What amazes me about Donut Monster is their constant creativity and the inspiration they take to make really remarkably flavoured donuts. Recent examples include the Tequila lime donut, garam malsala, and lemon lavender.  No matter which you pick, though, you're gonna love it.

You can find them on twitter, instagram and facebook.

So, time for the hunger games (please don't sue me, Suzanne Collins)!  Enter below!

Giveaway - Willy Dog's GTO

Although I keep it on the downlow, I am actually McMaster Alumna. Who among us has not spent an evening lecture, waiting hungrily for the break so we could go grab a Willy Dog? Their deliciousness helped many of us last in class until 10 p.m. (and seriously, what university administrator came up with the idea of three hour lectures?).

Now Willy Dog's has opened a take-out restaurant in Westdale. The food is just as delicious as those between-lecture hot dogs - frankly, the onion curls are amazing - and they are offering so much more, including Donut Monster and bread pudding made from Donut Monster donuts!

You can find them on twitter, instagram and facebook

Thank you to Willy Dog's for sponsoring this giveaway - a $20 gift certificate for their restaurant.  Remember, you need to be local to Hamilton, Ontario to win, since you will pick up the certificate at the restaurant.

Giveaway - Henry Brown's Small Batch Ice Cream

I am so excited that our first giveaway is for Henry Brown's Small Batch Ice Cream. They are the epitome of what a local food business should be. The ice cream is scrumptious. The thought put into the flavour combinations is remarkable and the care with which the ice cream is made is better than your mom when you were sick with the flu. The innovation they bring is amazing (Durian? Raspberry Chocolate Fudge Cheese?) and the ice cream is always served at the peak of freshness, made with local ingredients whenever possible.

You can find them on Twitter and Instagram, as well as Facebook.

I'm so grateful to Henry Brown's for offering a $20 gift card for our giveaway!  I can't wait for you to enjoy their ice cream as much as I do.

In order to enter, you need to be local to the Hamilton, Ontario area, as you will be picking up the gift certificate at their store in the Hamilton Farmers Market.

We hit 3000!

Hi.  We're a little bit excited...

Hungry in the Hammer just reached 3000 followers on twitter!  If you're not following us, come and join!

To celebrate, we've teamed up with some of our favourite Hamilton restaurants and stores to give you a chance to love them as much as we do.

The fine print: You will have to go to the establishment to pick up your gift certificate, so you need to be local to Hamilton, Ontario.  That's all.

Thanks for following along with us. May the odds be ever in your favour - but they already are, if you live in #HamOnt.
