Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Why not treat the sweetest woman you know to some sweets? Just in time for Mother’s Day, Tim Hortons is bringing back the Timbits Bouquet—an assortment of 24 Timbits on long-stemmed skewers, wrapped beautifully with tissue, ribbon and ready to be gifted in a Mother’s Day themed gift-box.
“We’re so excited to be bringing back the Timbits Bouquets for Mother’s Day this year,” said Shawn Thompson, president of Tim Hortons US, and “we can’t wait for everyone to share this sweet treat with their mom.”
But wait, what’s a Timbit?
Timbits are, essentially, a doughnut hole. These bite-sized treats are made of the same delicious dough as Tim Hortons’ trademark doughnuts—the kind that gave the chain its start. Today, more than 50 years later, Tim’s is still known for those doughnuts, which are baked in small batches throughout the day at all Tim Hortons restaurants.
Can’t wait until Mother’s Day for that bite-sized goodness? Get cooking with this recipe for glazed doughnut holes.
What flavors will the bouquet include?
Like Tim’s traditional doughnuts, TimBits come in more than 20 flavors, including Apple Fritter, Chocolate Dip, Honey Dip, Vanilla Dip, Maple Dip, Chocolate Glazed, Double Chocolate, Old Fashion Plain, Old Fashion Glazed, Sour Cream Plain, Strawberry Vanilla, Strawberry, Boston Cream, Canadian Maple, Sour Cream Glazed, Honey Cruller, Blueberry, Cinnamon Sugar, and Birthday Cake. Each “bouquet” of 24 will contain an assortment of whatever’s fresh at the time you order.
Where (and when) can you get your Timbits Bouquet?
You can purchase Timbits Bouquets at participating restaurants across the US on Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 for $7.99 per bouquet, while supplies last. You can find your nearest Tim Hortons using this handy locator. These tasty arrangements will likely go fast, so be sure to call in advance if you’re depending on a Timbits Bouquet to bring to Mother’s Day brunch.
