Attention Entenmann's Fans: The Baked Goods Brand Is Looking for a Chief Donut Officer


Good news, baked goods fans: All your years spent eating Entenmann's doughnuts may soon pay off. The classic pastry company is now accepting applications for Chief Donut Officer, an honorary position that comes with a year's worth of doughnuts.

The Chief Donut Officer, or CDO, must have big ideas for the brand and, most importantly, an intense love for doughnuts. After filling out the online application form with answers to such questions such as "How/where do you enjoy eating your favorite Entenmann's donut?" and "How would you make Entenmann's donuts even better?" candidates will be judged on creativity, originality, and passion. Five finalists will then be chosen to submit the video testimonials where they can make their final pitches. The grand prize winner will be voted on by consumers.

In addition to winning a year's worth of doughnuts, the CDO will also receive $5000 and Entenmann's-branded swag. And though they won't be getting the sweet title, the four runners-up will each walk away with $1000 and their own year-long doughnut supply.

The contest is a celebration of National Doughnut Day, which falls on Friday, June 1. Doughnut lovers will be able to buy special Entenmann's boxes promoting the Chief Donut Officer Contest from now through June 30, when the first phase of the contest closes. The winner will be announced August 7.

Learn to Paint Like Bob Ross in an Upcoming Facebook Live Event

Public television hero Bob Ross may no longer be with us, but you can still paint happy little trees in his honor. October 29, 2018 marks what would have been the 76th birthday of the beloved art teacher to the masses, and to honor his memory, the Quarto Group—publisher of the new book Painting With Bob Ross—is hosting a live-streamed painting party online.

Painting With Bob Ross provides step-by-step instructions to help you create some of the master’s favorite oil landscapes on your own. While Quarto’s October 23 painting party (a collaboration with Bob Ross, Inc.) can’t teach you how to mimic Ross's soothing voice, the celebration does include a painting session with Bernie Oropallo, a Certified Ross Instructor, who will demonstrate the techniques that Ross taught on The Joy of Painting.

The live-streamed instructional session will take place within the offices of a youth arts center in Beverly, Massachusetts, called Express Yourself. Oropallo will lead you through the process of painting “Distant Mountains,” one of the artworks included in the new book.

The painting lesson kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on October 23. To participate, log onto Facebook and head to the QuartoCreates page to join the live event. Before it starts, check out the event page here for a list of the supplies you’ll need to complete the painting. If you can’t make it to a computer that night, grab Painting With Bob Ross on Amazon ($15) to get the next best thing. If that’s not enough for you, we suggest you curl up with the official Bob Ross art book and/or a Bob Ross coloring book.
