Tim Hortons vs. Dunkin Donuts

When my husband, mom, brother, and son decided this morning to go on a day hike, my dad and I figured it was as good a time as any to try out the donuts at the new Tim Horton’s in town.

Now I’m one of those die-hard Krispy Kreme fans, and it is my personal opinion that there is no other donut even worthy of comparison to the King of Donuts, the Krispy Kreme original glazed donut.

But.  When there is no Krispy Kreme available, I’m certainly not one to turn down a good ol’ Dunkin Donut. 

I’ve heard a lot about Tim Hortons.  Canadians are quite proud of their trademark donut chain.  So when I saw one in town the other day, I determined that I would have to try one before we head home.

At Dunkin Donuts, the chocolate frosted is my donut of choice.  So I figured if I’m going to do an accurate comparison, I would need to try a chocolate frosted at Tim Hortons.  Dad and I took the girls in and placed our order. 

And the verdict?

Eh.  It was okay.  Nothing to get too excited about.  Very cakey and thick.  If the Krispy Kreme donut is a 10 on a 10-point scale, then I would give Dunkin Donuts an 8 and Tim Horton’s a 7.  I would certainly go back, but with a Dunkin Donuts just a mile down the road (as is the case here) I would go to the Dunkin Donuts. 

And I’d bypass both and travel across state lines to get a Krispy Kreme.

So what’s your donut opinion?
