Fans of Tim Hortons’ tasty treats won’t want to miss this weekend’s newest limited-edition flavour!
On Saturday, July 20th, the coffee giant will be launching a new donut created by a Special Olympics athlete with all proceeds going towards Canada’s Special Olympics program.
The new pastry, called the Special Olympics Donut, is made of a classic crueller sliced in half with vanilla fondant placed in the middle like a sandwich completed with red sprinklers placed on top.
The limited-edition donut flavour was chosen over more than 400 other submissions, and was designed by 26-year-old Tori Ranson, an Ontario resident and Canadian Special Olympics athlete.
“Special Olympics has been a huge part of my life for over 12 years,” said Ranson in a release. “I love the friendships I have found over the years through Special Olympics. I have a lot of great buddies.”
“I can’t wait to see people enjoying my donut – I used red sprinkles for Canada.”
Canadians looking to try out the new flavour and support national athletes have just one day to pick up the donut.
The Special Olympics Donut will be available at all Tim Hortons locations on Saturday, July 20th, for $1.69 plus tax.
