Canadian Delicacies: Timbits and a “Double Double”
It would be nearly impossible to find a Canadian who hasn’t sampled a donut, coffee or sandwich from Tim Hortons. The humble coffee shop was launched in Hamilton, Ontario in 1964 by Tim Horton, a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player. Donuts and hockey—you can’t get more Canadian than that. Over the years, Tim Hortons has become synonymous with the Great White North, and today it boasts more outlets than any other restaurant in Canada. With its menu of steaming hot coffee – the “Double Double,” a brew featuring two sugars and two creams, is a national favourite—and bite-sized Timbits, Tim Hortons is a treasure trove of taste.
