DSCN2354IT’S TIMBIT TIME!  Has everyone tried the new strawberry and birthday cake sweets yet?!  I don’t know about all of you, but I looooove when Tim Hortons comes out with new Timbit flavours and I looooove when I stumble across flavours that I can’t get at every location, like the cherry ones (which I always see at the Dufferin Mall location along with a few other spots) and the Boston cream ones (which, sadly, I have no idea where to get now since I used to be able to get them at the Tim Hortons inside the Sears at Eaton Centre which is now, you know, no longer there).  So yes, I love me my Timbits and my new flavours and since we’re on the topic, my favourite is the sour cream glazed, my least favourite is the chocolate, and I’m dying for them to come out with some delicious coconut concoction!

Now I know the new limited time line of strawberry pastries and donuts is being promoted and offered pretty much everywhere this summer, but that certainly doesn’t stop me from feeling giddy over the the ‘new’ness of it.  I was so excited to try Tim Hortons’ new strawberry glazed Timbits that I staged a mini photoshoot with them and posed them in a bowl of strawberries that I had just happened to have in the fridge.  Seriously, the timing couldn’t be more impeccable.  They’re so darn cute!  And they taste so yummy.  I would have taken photos of the birthday cake ones too but everyone in the house ate them before I could do anything so I’ll have to go out and get me a 10-pack of them one of these days so that I can get proper photos.  They would look so stylish with my cupcake tablecloth background.




What’s New, What Hot – What’s New: Tim Hortons’ Foodie Christmas Tree Ornaments!



Do you love foodie accessories and adorable food-related items as much as I do?  If you’re a die-hard foodie you know exactly what I’m referring to.  You know, things like colourful tote bags with prints of apples on them or pretty stationery adorned with cupcakes and baking supplies, or kitchen accessories in the shape of food.  I have snack containers in the shape of Pop Tarts and Goldfish crackers, cupcake carriers and stationery, Junk Food themed tin lunch boxes (why hello there Tootsie Roll!), and even a collection of cute dessert-themed jewelry!  And this love for everything food certainly extends to seasonal goodies, probably even more so!  So, if you have a soft spot for all things foodie(and I really do mean all things!), you need these achingly adorable, cute-as-a-button Tim Hortons foodie Christmas tree ornaments!

I remember seeing a few of these last year but never got around to getting any so when I saw them again last week, I knew I couldn’t pass them up again.  Even though my family and I don’t put our tree up every year (we put up minis and our door wreaths and lights and things, but not the whole kit and caboodle every year), I love Christmas tree ornaments and love the traditions some families have of making cookie ornaments or having the little ones make cute ones out of a pasta.  I know off the top of my head we have a gingerbread man and glass candy cane and in my own personal collection I have a few M&M chocolate themed ones, but that’s all that comes to mind at the moment so I’m really happy I have these little guys here to plump things up!




If I’m not mistaken, I believe there are 5 ornaments in the collection, but it’s possible I could have misunderstood or misheard the nice girl who served me so to be on the safe side, these 4 are definitely available.What we have here: 1) the Tim Hortons mug, 2) the Tim Hortons coffee and tea cup, 3) the Tim Hortons Timbit on a sled sporting winter goggles and a little yellow Tim Hortons toque, and finally 4) a beautiful, darling little replica of a Tim Hortons coffee shop!  These are SO cute!  I am head over heels in love with the cutie-patootie Timbit on a sled ornament and think the coffee shop one is so, so pretty.

Each ornament is $5.95 a piece and there might be a 5th ornament available in the form of a Timbit snowman, but I’m only going by what one of the girls at Tim Hortons told me so ask around if you want to know for sure the next time you’re there.  Part of me wants to open them to hang on our mini tree in the living room and the other part thinks that’s crazy talk and wants to leave them in mint condition just the way they are because you never mess with the packaging of a collectible.  Oh, the trials and tribulations of a foodie.
