Over the last month or so, and until December 24, 2011, they’re hosting a battle royale on their Facebook page to see if you are a fan of De Bakon vs Hashbrowns, Apples vs Blueberries, Hollandaise vs Mushrooms, and more.

The polls are posted every few days but in the meantime you can claim a 25% off coupon for January 2012 and enter to win $500 to spend at any De Dutch — now that’s a lot of pannekoek.

To spread the word about their sweet and savoury battle, De Dutch has offered up a $50 gift card for one lucky reader of mine. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment naming your favourite topping for pannekoek (or pancakes) (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win $50 to spend @DeDutch from @Miss604 #Miss604Holidays

De Dutch was founded by John Dys of the Netherlands who emigrated to Canada and made his home on Vancouver Island. He started up the legendary “Frying Dutchman” in 1970 and the first De Dutch opened its doors in 1975 at the corner of Knight and 25th in Vancouver.

I will draw one winner at 10:00am next Wednesday, December 14, 2011.

Update The winner is Brent!

    I went to MCDee’s for breakfast pancakes a while ago and found out they didn’t have butter on hand for my pancakes. They give margerine! Ughh.

My favorite topping if butter on pancakes with whatever else.
