We don’t know about you, but we like our doughnuts sweet and sugary.
But Tim Hortons has just announced that they have created a ”poutine doughnut” in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday—think honey dipped doughnuts topped with potato wedges, gravy, and cheese curds (frightening, if you ask us).
Thankfully, it will only be available at select locations in the United States.
The Canadian coffee-and-doughnut chain’s American counterpart will also debut a few other Canada 150-themed menu items (ones that are much less alarming), including maple Timbits and maple bacon iced cappuccinos.
“At Tim Hortons restaurants, we’re proud of our Canadian heritage and we want to share a piece of that in the United States,” said Felipe Athayde, executive vice president of Tim Hortons U.S., in a press statement. “Our new Canadian inspired treats are a great way for Americans to get in on the 150th celebration of their friendly neighbour next door.”
For those who feel like they are missing out on the treats, don’t fret. Tim Hortons Canada has recently launched its own share of Canada 150 goodies, including the bite-sized maple Timbits.
Find everything from Nanaimo bar doughnuts to white-and-red velvet muffins to Dutchie doughnuts at your nearest Tim’s.
The real question is: do our American friends even know poutines are?
