Poutine doughnut on Tim Hortons' Canada Day menu for American customers only

Friday, June 30, 2017
To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, Tim Hortons is serving up patriotic food. On the menu: a donut smothered in poutine and an Iced Capp coffee drink topped with whipped cream, maple flakes and bacon bits.

Strange thing though, these Canadian-inspired delights won't be available in Canada. On July 1, they'll only be served up at select Tim Hortons in the U.S.

The American-only offerings are already stirring up discussion on both sides of the border via social media. Some Canadians are wondering why they don't get access to the treats created for their own country's birthday.

Canadians do have their own celebratory Tim Hortons menu for Canada 150 including a Dutchie Donut, Red and White Velvet Muffin, Maple Timbits and Nanaimo bar donut.

Tim Hortons is also marking Canada's birthday in Scotland by offering one limited-edition item: a doughnut with red and white sprinkles. Yet even this rather subdued treat has created a bit of a stir, leaving some U.K. fans feeling slighted.

Would you have tried the Poutine Donut or Iced Capp with maple flakes and bacon bits if it had been available in Canada? Let us know on our Facebook Page here.
