    Let's hope that's what McHortons is smelling tonight.

    As someone who has spent almost the entirety of their life in the south i would love to go to a Tim Hortons. See what all the hype is about.

    I could say so many things here that would get me fired from Canada. but bottom line it is on the exact same level of quality as Dunkin Donuts, but with a lot more nostalgia and Canadian cultural touchstones baked in

    Tim Hortons every year puts out a set of hockey cards and sells packs at their stores.

    Tim Hortons is solid. But yeah, about on par with other chains.

    Darling wouldn't even need smell. He would just sense it's presence.

    basically tim hortons has average coffee, average baked goods and average food. iced capps are unreal and just dominate any other frozen coffee drink.

    boston cream donuts from tims used to be amazing but now they arent better than other places idk what they changed

    will review any tims product in depth for non canadians

    they are good, the timbits are better. pretty dry compared to the other donuts

    not much point to go for them when they have the sour cream glazed donuts and timbits so i havent had them in a long time

    This is a fair take. I'm pretty sure Canadians have a similar view of White Castle or Sonic, in the sense that people love exotic food even if it's pretty ordinary by local standards.

    The biggest difference between a Tim Hortons and a DD, is that if you are in a Tim Hortons then you are in Canada and it's 20 below and you've never loved a hot coffee so much.

    Nah, when you step inside from freezing weather the warmth of inside temperature is enough to bring you back to life.

    Eating a singular piece of chocolate at that moment will blow up your world though.

    Except in Canada, where you step into a hockey rink and nothing changes.

    Yeah I can't say I found Timmy's too dissimilar to Dunkin when I've been in Canada. Maybe a bit fresher but eh, probably dependent on location in that regard. Can confirm the effect of stepping in from -20 will have on you though. Hell, when I caught the WJC in Saskatchewan -20 would have been one of the warm mornings.

    Darn tootin'.....this is North Carolina--who the heck brought in that Harris Teeter baked good? Krispy Kreme glazed are sooooo much better--especially right off the line.

    And izzy is right--the best things at Tim's are the Timbits--just enough donut to get a taste--but not enough to realize that you should gotten a different flavor....sorry flavour.

    I'm going to make a lot of people angry, but Krispy Kreme glazed, fresh or not, are very overrated to me.

    As for Tim Hortons, you can also get it in Ohio and NYC at the very least, as I do most of the time when I'm there.
