Tim Horton's is using a Canadian favorite to celebrate the country's 150th birthday.
Tim Hortons in Derby, East Aurora and Hamburg will be equipped with the savory doughnut, modeled after the Quebec creation of french fries, gravy and cheese curds, as well as two maple-flavored offerings.
Some Canadians, however, were disappointed to learn the poutine donut will not be sold on this side of the border.
But that's not the only celebratory Canadian item that's being added to the menu this summer. A spokesperson for the company said both the Poutine Donuts and the Maple Bacon Iced Capp will be sold at select Tim Hortons locations across the USA for one day only, Saturday, July 1. They recommend that you should call your local Tim Hortons to confirm availability.
Also on offer for the occasion: maple Timbits and maple bacon iced cappuccinos. (That's Canada Day, for those of us in the States.) The Maple Timbits will be available for all of July. I'm sure if even your local store doesn't have the poutine doughnut available, the staff will be very friendly about it.
