Timmies donuts jumped the shark decades ago when they stopped being made by bakers in store and started shipping out mass produced ones from central locations instead.

That was a sad day for me. What they did to fritters is criminal and somebody should be dragged up in front of the Hague.

Just spent two weeks in Canada and lived on Tim Hortons. Though I managed to find one that didn't do latte's. WTF was that about?

They recently changed the machines they use to make them so my guess is that franchise didn't want to buy the new machine.

If you live in Ontario, then your donuts are made here:  https://goo.gl/maps/M1bpNKwxJHM2

Using water from the Grand River.  The stuff that farkers like Brantgoose drink.  Downstream from the derelict rubber factories.

Looks like the cooking oil people didn't pay their lobbying money to the part-time ski instructor and substitute drama teacher that runs Canada.  Lunchmeat and Soy remain legal.

Meh..Krispy creme.

I miss the days when you could get a freshly made chocolate dip donut or eclair. Now everything tastes a little stale. At least they still put crack in the coffee.

Says the soon to be banned oils are largely used because they let the food sit on the shelf longer, or the fat sit in the fryer longer.

So the new law is a win for people who like somewhat healthy food and for people who like their food to be somewhat fresh?

I never knew what the big deal was about Krispy Kreme until I had one fresh off the line in Maui of all places.  Now I understand.

About a year ago, I stopped by and got an apple fritter. It had apparently just come out of the oven and was still hot. That was a next level fritter and has spoiled me for the 'regular' ones. However, I agree they are nothing compared to the 'old days'

I've been known to derail road trip schedules by adding a stop because "hey, the hot light is on!" Krispy Kreme trumps DD's, TimHo's, and any other donut chain I've found (there is a better local shop near where I live, but that's it.).

We have a small franchise in Texas (maybe elsewhere now) called Southern Maid, and while the regular glazed from KK is outstanding, overall Southern Maid has better donuts. The old fashioned chocolate they make is insanely good.

Many/most Robin's Donuts still make them on-site.
 
2017-09-23 09:28:40 AM  
On our trip to see the eclipse we found our new favourite donut place.
Unfortunately (or fortunately...)  there isn't a franchise anywhere near our home.
But some of the rest of you might be able to try Duck Donuts - made to order, fresh.

Even New York has an exception for donuts in their laws.  As long as you don't go crazy, and you limit a doughnut as a sometimes food, they are okay.  Now got to go, it is sometime.

I love when people bring up KK as being superior to DD and Tim's. Do they realize that the vast majority of the country has to settle for boxed KK because there is not a local fresh within 500 miles? Hell, I didn't know until a few years ago they had actual shops, and I'm 37.

Timmy's donuts?  What about Canad's national passtime?

If you're getting your poutine fix from Rotten Ronnie's you're doing it wrong.

Given what happened to Tim Horton, I still think it's rather tasteless that they sell Timbits.

Guess they learned that from Dunkin 'Donuts'...terrible donuts that taste stale even when they are 'fresh'. My local nondescript everyday grocery store makes donuts 10x better and will actually hold up for a couple days.

I grew up on KK, and moved north to find that they preferred Dunkin' drywall donuts. However, there is a KK 40 minutes away via a toll road, so I get a dozen anytime I have to take my car into the dealership down the road.

Same here, my grocery store makes great donuts fresh everyday. Only problem I have is that if you don't get there by lunch they're usually all gone and I mostly go grocery shopping at night, mostly.

/don't need them anyway as I'm already too fat

There used to be one KK in my general area of upstate NY. I enjoyed one or two of their glazed donuts still-warm off the production line, but it wasn't worth the drive. Donuts are convenient on-the-go junk food to me, not something I'd go miles out of my way for. Seems like my opinion is a popular one around these parts since the closest Krispy Kreme to me at present is in Connecticut.

Now Dunkin Donuts on the other hand - they're as ubiquitous and Stewart's shops. Every town with more than one stoplight has at least one.

AS Stewart's Shops. Me type gud.

In fairness, that's because there aren't enough of them to distribute from a central location.

But yes, Robin's is quite good.  Used to live a block from one in Victoria in the 90s and it was my go-to before and after-shift snack.  Didn't do much to help break the cop stereotype, though.
 
2017-09-23 11:35:29 AM  
Dunkin Donuts and Amy's Donuts are better than Tim Horton's donuts. Krispy Kreme is overpriced sugar lumps; the worst. I am right, you are wrong.

Man, do I ever.  I can STILL vividly remember the taste of those cigarette-flavoured donuts when we'd head to Tim's after church every Sunday when I was 13.
