Contest: Win free UBC cinnamon buns for a year

UBC Cinnamon Bun

The UBC cinnamon bun. A classic treat, enjoyed by countless students at UBC over the last 65 years.

And now, we at alumni UBC, along with our partners at Manulife Financial, TD Insurance and BMO® alumni UBC Mastercard® would like to bring the cinnamon bun experience off campus and into the home (or workplace) of one lucky UBC alumnus, staff or faculty member.

This first contest, in our new series of contests, will award an overly indulgent one year supply of UBC cinnamon buns!* Enter below with your favourite UBC memory for a chance to enjoy these classic sticky-sweet treats for the next 365 days. That’s right, you could win one bun a day for an entire year. Goodbye summer bod, hello stretchy pants!

Introduced in 1954, the UBC bake shop produced 100 dozen UBC cinnamon buns daily to meet the demands of hungry students and faculty. In recent years, UBC Food Services switched to a miniature version of the cinnamon bun. Same great taste, just smaller. Which in our opinion means you can have more. An entire year’s worth in fact!

Contest is now closed. Congratulations to our winner for September, Cam Cronin!
