article imageHappy 35th Birthday, TimBits

By KJ Mullins     Jun 15, 2011 in Food
The TimBit, one of Canada's favorite treats, turns 35 this summer. Top Chef Canada contestant Chef Andrea Nicholson has been enlisted to make a special birthday cake to celebrate the milestone for this fried dough specialty.
The cake stands almost four feet tall and used over 1,500 TimBits packed in a yummy Timbits cake box.
"I designed the cake to be a true Timbit celebration," said Nicholson in a press release. "I really wanted the Timbits on the top of the box to look like fireworks exploding. Timbits are an iconic Canadian snack and every Canadian knows and loves them. Having the opportunity to create the 35th birthday cake was an absolute blast!"
TimBits, bite-size donut holes, were first offered in 1976. Since that time Canadians have eaten so many of the tasty snacks that if you added them up consumed TimBits would stretch to the moon and back five times. Just in the past five years Tim Hortons has sold enough TimBits that if stacked on top of each other they were be 80,000 times taller than the CN Tower.
Today Tim Hortons customers have their choice of 35 varieties of the snacks with the introduction of Banana Glazed and Blueberry Glazed this summer.
TimBits has made memories for over 20 years for kids in minor Canadian sports programs. At this time Tim Hortons sponsors more than 200,000 children who proudly wear a Timbits Minor Sports jersey or t-shirt.
"Whether they're part of a post soccer game celebration, or a 'coffee run' treat for everyone at the office, or a summer road trip snack, Timbits have always been the go-to snack that's fresh, bite-sized and road ready," said Donna Finelli, Director of Brand Marketing for food at Tim Hortons. "I think Canadians love Timbits because everyone has a favourite flavour and they're so easy to share."
