Timbits is the name of a bite-sized fried dough confectionery sold at the Canadian-based franchise fast food restaurant, Tim Hortons. They were introduced in April 1976. The word Timbit is a play on the word "titbit" (a delicate bit or morsel of food). As of 2009, they are available in various flavors that differ from store to store. Flavors include, but are not limited to, chocolate glazed, jelly filled, dutchie, honey dip, sour cream glazed, old-fashioned plain, old fashion glazed, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, lemon, apple cider, orange-tangerine, creamy caramel, cherry cake, birthday cake, honey cruller, pumpkin spice, toasted coconut, and apple fritter. For Tim Hortons's 50th anniversary, "birthday cake" doughnuts and Timbits were sold for a limited time and given out for free on May 17, 2014- the Timbits being available first in the United States. Other doughnut chains in Canada and the United States sell virtually identical products, often called "doughnut holes". The majority of Canadians generally use the Timbits trademark to designate the product, while French-speaking Quebecers and Acadians prefer to use the generic term "trous de beigne". In francophone Tim Hortons's usage, however, they are still called Timbits. *** Description sourced from Wikipedia (2017).
