Actually, Krispy Kreme's first Canadian store opened last year in Mississauga Ontario (just west Toronto). Although highly promoted and blessed with a ton of 'curious novelty' customer traffic in its first few months, most folks up here (myself included) who've sampled Krispy Kreme donuts agree that Tim Horton's has absolutely nothing to worry about ...Tim still makes the best donuts and coffee around.

You know.. if they cannot even manage to spell 'crispy' or 'cream' why should I think that they could tell the difference between "Doughnut batter" and "Rat poison" when it's printed on a package? Tims all the way!!!!!

I can't say much for or against his donuts, but I do recall his talent as a a Leaf defenseman and 4 Cups! His final years were with Buffalo as he helped anchor the defense with the "French Connection" line with his "bear hug" techniques before his untimely death in a car accident the mid 70's.

 

Now where he learned to make a donut is beyond me, it's hard to believe that anything could beat a Krispy Kreme! icon_biggrin.gif

No, actually they aren't ...compare their menus sometime.

 

(and, sad truth be known, Tim Horton's was purchased by Ohio-based Wendy's back in '95 icon_frown.gif)


 

Wow, I didn't realize it had been that long ago. Which brings me to something I've been curious about just because I think about lame things like this all the time. Up there in Canada do they have the combo stores with Wendy's and Tim Horton's? Down here they're starting to pop up all over. You can walk into one building that contains Wendy's on one half and Tim Horton's on the other. I usually don't have occasion to get up into Canada much.

Mr O,

 

This is news to me, first we take their Hockey Teams and now Tim Hortons. Are these just located in Ohio or are they in the surounding states?

Although the vast majority of each restaurant's Canadian outlets are still 'stand alone', there are a few up here which have the tandem 'Wendy's/Tim Horton's' arrangement you describe (...which is a good thing, since there aren't nearly enough calories in a Wendy's triple-bacon-cheeseburger as it is).

That TBCB is an Adkin's dream food, that is if you throw away the bun. Can't saw that I know a lot about the Horton menu, is it fast food mixed with donuts?

 

Here in Utah some of us cachers keep the Wendy's locs handy for a quick bite before grabbing the next cache. It maybe the attraction of that cheap $USD 0.99 menu. icon_eek.gif

Tim Horton's isn't really fast food, in the traditional sense. They have deli sandwiches, soups, (Chicken stew in a bread bowl is one of my favorites) coffee, muffins, bagels, doughnuts and stuff like that.
