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.

Cook a Game of Thrones-Inspired Feast With This Video Tutorial

Tonight marks the series finale of Game of Thrones. Hosting a watch party? Consider skipping the chips and dip, and try whipping up a dish inspired by the show. In the video below, first spotted by Laughing Squid, Binging With Babish host Andrew Rea provides recipes for three foods featured in the fantasy series: Purple Wedding pigeon pie, Dothraki blood pie, and Sansa Stark’s lemon cake.

For the uninitiated, Binging With Babish is a YouTube tutorial channel that features Rea cooking—and in some cases, improving on—foods from popular movies and television shows. Game of Thrones's characters are likely better on the battlefield than they are in the kitchen, so Rea takes a few culinary liberties while recreating Medieval and Dothraki fare: His “pigeon pie” is made with squab, and the blood pie, in Rea’s own words, is “essentially a black pudding in pie form” that’s garnished with figs, goat cheese, and black sea salt.

Now You Can Wear Your Favorite Dunkin' Coffee Flavor as Nail Polish

Dunkin'—the coffee chain formerly known as Dunkin' Donuts—is getting into the beauty business. For a limited time, nail polish inspired by Dunkin's flavored coffees will be available at select nail salons across the country.

The nail polish line includes eight freshly brewed shades. Three pay homage to Dunkin's new signature lattes—cocoa mocha, caramel craze, and blueberry crisp—and three are inspired by the seasonal Baskin-Robbins ice cream-flavored coffees: butter pecan, pistachio almond fudge, and banana split. Nail polishes in Dunkin's iconic pink and orange color palette are also available.

The collection is a collaboration between Dunkin' and the vegan-friendly nail polish company Lauren B. Beauty. While supplies last, the products will be available at certain nail salons in 10 cities where Dunkin' operates, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Boston. Each purchase of the branded nail polish comes with a $3 Dunkin' gift card. To see if a salon in your area is participating, check out the map below.

Dunkin' isn't the first fast food chain to release its own nail polish line. In 2016, KFC released edible "finger-licking" nail polish that, yes, tasted like chicken.
