You Need To Know About This Poutine Donut From Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons will be selling poutine donuts in only 5 U.S. to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. Columbus is one of them. Happy Canada Day, eh?

Dang Canada, you look good for your age. Canada day is July 1st, so don’t miss it. The other cities are Derby, Hamburg, and East Aurora, NY, and Rochester Hills, MI.

What in the world is poutine? Well, its a dish thought to have originated in Quebec that consists of fries (they call them chips), gravy, and cheese curds.

Tim Hortons will also be offering a Maple Bacon Iced Capp and Maple Timbits. The Timbits will be available for the whole month of July.

“At Tim Hortons restaurants, we’re proud of our Canadian heritage and we want to share a piece of that in the United States,” Felipe Athayde, the executive vice president of  Tim Hortons US, said in a news release. “Our new Canadian inspired treats are a great way for Americans to get in on the 150th celebration of their friendly neighbor next door.”

People have been pretty focused on the poutine donut, though, and they had mixed reactions on social media.
