Our famous Dough Balls have now been on our menu for an amazing 45 years.  This calls for a celebration.  So, brightening up an otherwise dreary January, golden boy, Joey Essex, has been helping us to launch a competition to find two Golden Dough Balls, made from solid gold and worth £5,000 each.

To get the competition underway, Joey sprinkled a bit of celebrity stardust on the launch with a special photo-shoot.  Agreeing to show off his svelte, post-Christmas physique, wearing little more than gold body paint and a cheeky grin, acclaimed make up artist, Natasha Bloom, created a truly stunning look for Joey.

Joey - you are GOLD!

Joey – you are GOLD!

One Dough Ball, covered with edible gold, will be found by a restaurant guest before the end of January and will be replaced with the solid gold version once claimed.  Ten other Dough Balls, covered with edible gold, will be found in special packs of Original Dough Balls, available in selected branches of Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, The Co-op and through Ocado.  Each gold-covered Dough Ball found in a supermarket will entitle the winner to a year’s worth of free Dough Balls PLUS one of the ten will be awarded the grand prize – the second Golden Dough Ball made from solid gold.


We’ll be keeping you updated on when and where the Golden Dough Balls are found through Facebook, Twitter and this blog.  If you’re going for gold in January, here are the full Terms and Conditions – happy hunting!
