POUTINE DONUT: Tim Horton’s is adding some very Canadian items to their menu in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday including a POUTINE DONUT! It’s a maple donut with fries, gravy and cheese curds on top. They’ve also added an Iced Capp topped with maple flakes and bacon bits! If this sounds tasty, you have to head to the US to try them! They won’t be available in Canada.
