My last two years of high school were spent at a Christian boarding school in Canada - a few miles upstream from Niagara Falls. Those were two of my happiest years in school. A large percentage of the students weren't Canadian (or American). I think during the two years I attended there were students from nine countries.
There are lots of fabulous things that come from Canada - the world's best hockey (The Maple Leafs), fabulous maple syrup, the zipper, "eh?", and of course, my personal favorite - Tim Horton's. Since graduation, and my migration back south, I've missed Tim Horton's something terrible. (Dunkin' Donuts doesn't hold a candle to it!)
Well, this past weekend we visited my mother (in Wheeling, WV). I was absolutely ecstatic when we drove through town, and past ... you guessed it ... TIMMY'S! My mother was hosting a party at her house on Sunday (unfortunately it started after we had to leave to drive home), and used Timbits as her dessert. While we were at her house, each of us snuck some (shh! don't tell!) On our way out of town, we visited their drive-thru, and picked up a box of our own.
The box is now empty. Maybe we should have bought the large one instead of the mid-size. Even looking at these pictures is making my mouth water. But they were a bit of heaven on earth while they lasted. I don't know where all Tim Horton's has spread to in the US. But, if you ever drive past one. Take my advice and stop in for a sample. You won't regret it! (By the way, my personal favorite is the sour cream variety!)
In my opinion (not that you asked), Tim Horton's is Canada's most valuable export!
