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.
Tim Hortons will sell poutine donuts in the U.S. for Canada Day. Whereas in Canada we know that poutine is for 3am; donuts are for 9am.

LOL, Tim Hortons’ poutine donut is only available to Americans. Because Canadians know better than to want to eat a poutine donut.
