Goodbye Tim Horton's

Hello Dunkin' Donuts.

So I'm traveling from Canada down to the States to see my sister graduate high school.


The traveling brings to mind the age old debate- which is better: Dunkin' Donuts or Tim Horton's?





So..which is it?

Never heard of Tim-hortons either. Have you tried Krispy Kreme?

Valerie said...

yes I have heard of krispy kreme... tim horton's is canadian. It's even named after a hockey player. I think out east they have both in the states.

Dunkin Donuts is a classic!

Yum Yum Donuts has the best apple fritters. The ones at Dunkin Donuts are too soft and bland. Haven't heard of Tim Hortons...

Where are you traveling to in the states. I love Dunkin Donuts if you are talking bout donuts. If you are talking bout drinks, I'd go with Tim Hortons. Now I'm asking where you are going because I live in New York State, and Timmy Ho's are EVERYWHERE here now......I remember when I didn't know what they were.

I voted for Dunkin Donuts because they have lots of menu items that I don't think is typical of most donut shops. Iced mocha drinks, hashbrowns & awesome paninis in addition to all the sweets.

Laura- I'm going to minnesota. They have dunkin' but not Tim's. We always made a point of going to Tim's when we went to Canada from the states, and I know its like crack for canadians, but I have some friends from NY state who are totally anti-tim's

Courtney- good point. I don't even really like donuts at all myself hahaha

If it wasn't for blogging, I'd never have heard of Tim Horton's. I love Dunkin' Donuts for their donuts, but I'm not a big coffee fan. Oh, I have a weakness for donuts. And ice cream. And frosting. Clearly, I have problems...

oh! i didn't know tim horton is a hockey player (we're new in canada).

Dunks.
Tim Horton is the Dunks of Canada though, there's one on every corner (more than Starbucks!!), our bassist hyperventilates whenever we are in Canada. He needs his Tim Horton fix haha.

DUNKIN all the way!

But I'm totally biased. I grew up in Massachusetts, where there's a DD on every corner. We literally give directions by them.

I like krispy kreme lol I guess if I have to compare those two, I'll choose Dunkin. Basically because I never try tim Horton's.

Valerie said...

Haha... well I see the donut shop alliance is strong in some :)

@wife in stilettos- I had no idea either until I was waiting for a greyhound bus at a Tims and read the entire history on some information they had there... I thought it was fitting!
