Tim Hortons in Scotland!?!?!

Imagine my excitement when I found a corner shop that sold Tim Hortons coffee and doughnuts???

A few weeks after we arrived, we drove past a little shop that had a Timmies sign out front. We aren't in that area very often so it was a while before I was able to go back to try some. It wasn't much - just a self-service coffee machine that had cappuccino, coffee and lattes and a small stand with doughnuts. I was excited to try the cappuccino, hoping it would be like the french vanilla cappucino back home (something I've been craving for a while!). Unfortunately, it wasn't at all like it. It tasted like a normal cappuccino, but not a very good one. I ended up dumping most of it out because I didn't want to drink it but wanted to keep the cup. I didn't try any of the doughnuts - the chocolate on the Boston Creme (my favourite) was sweating and I didn't think that was a good thing! All in all, it was a little disappointing and not a very good representation of Tim Hortons, but having the cup in my room is a nice reminder of home.



Always fresh, always Tim Hortons.

I am dreaming of going to Tim Horton's with you ... This December they feature a Candy Cane Donut and Candy Cane Hot Choco. I never tried the Donut, but I did get slightly addicted to the hot chocolate. So yummy. It was as good, or better, than SB's peppermint latte.

I arm wrestled a guy at work, last winter, for a candy cane donut. It was delish!!
I couldn't imagine living without Timmies. Glad you found one!

So, where will you be going next?
