You know when you really, really love something and then it gets taken away? They say you don't truly appreciate something until it's gone, or in other words, you always want what you can't have. These Tim Hortons menu items have been resting in peace as we morn and reminisce about the "good old days" when you were once together as one. Tim Hortons, will you ever bring these back?
1. Mixed Berry Smoothie
Okay, there was a slight chance these weren't actually made with real berries, but I mean, they tasted like you were sipping heaven and that's all that really mattered.
2. Chocolate & Blueberry Danishes
Muffins, donuts, croissants, everything but danishes. Where art thou danishes? Once upon a time you could get chocolate and blueberry danishes at Timmies, remember that?
3. Double Berry Muffin
You have fruit explosion muffins, and blueberry muffins but what if I want double the berries in one muffin. Nope, sorry, you can't have that anymore.
4. Cold Stone Creamery
This was seriously short lived. Remember that short period of time, not too long ago that Timmies tested out serving ice cream? Maybe it wasn't the most brilliant of their ideas, but the ice cream was good, and who doesn't like a one-stop shop?
5. Dutchie Timbits
This one may have been for the Grandparents, because who really likes raisins in their timbits? But there were probably a few of us who secretly liked these too.
6. Nanaimo Bars
Tim Hortons is the most Canadian chain, nanaimo bars are Canadian, don't they go hand in hand? So why did they have to be taken away?
7. Chocolate Sour Cream Glazed Donut
Tim Hortons kept the worlds most boring donut with the sour cream plain donut, but didn't keep around the chocolate version? Are they crazy?
8. Bread Bowl
Once upon a time your stew and chili got served up in a bread bowl. Not only are dishes that you can eat after environmentally friendly, but they're genius! You really messed that one up Timmies.
Remember when you were a kid and going to Timmies was like going to a bakery where your Aunts and Uncles would spoil you with pure sugar before they delivered you back to your parents? Those eclairs were delicious!
10. Cake & Pie Displays
You may have to think really far back for this one, but Tim Hortons actually used to sell and full cakes and pies, and as a kid, with wide eyes you'd eye them up as you entered Timmies with your parents. Remember the chocolate sprinkle one with cherries?
11. Mint-Chocolate Iced Capp
This may have sort of clogged your arteries, but everyone knows mint and chocolate are the perfect combination and on a hot summer day when you're craving a cold beverage, it was just what you needed!
12. Pecan Butter Tart
Apparently Tim Hortons just likes to retire anything that doesn't resemble a donut or muffin. Nothing beats a butter tart with a great cup of tea or coffee, so why separate what belongs together?
13. Gingerbread Characters
Literally Tim Hortons thought they'd be the Grinch and take away ALL the gingerbread cookies ever. That includes the gingerbread ninja turtles, the teddies, the snowman, everything that brings Christmas cheer. Like, seriously Tim Hortons?
14. Birthday Cake Donuts
These were here for a limited time last year to celebrate Timmies 50th Birthday, and although normal Birthday cake isn't devoured all year round, this is one Birthday treat we wish would have stayed.
15. Chicken Fajita Wrap
You know when there are those things that you feel like are SO good, yet somehow they disappear and you start to wonder if you were the only one who ate them? This may have happened to our friend the chicken fajita wrap. May it rest in peace.
