A pastry shop in Montreal is making trekking in the snow a little sweeter — but with a catch.
CRémy Pâtisserie is giving out a free donut to those who show up in skis or snow shoes.
According to the shop, a couple of dozen people have braved the more than 40 centimetres of snow on the ground to claim their free treat.
“Storms are always seen in a negative light and we said, ‘we’ll change that’,” explained Alexandra Pesant-Tremblay who works at the shop.
Pesant-Tremblay says the owner, Rémy Couture, came up with the idea. “He wanted to put joy in people’s hearts, to have fun and sweeten people’s day.”

Some of the donut treats include bourbon-bacon, cheesecake and Boston creme flavors. “They’re the size of three Tim Horton’s donuts!” Pesant-Tremblay exclaimed proudly.
The shop is located at 2202 avenue Mont-Royal Est. It closes at 6:00 p.m.
