Dunkin Donuts don't exist here.
I've never tried anything from Dunkin Donuts, but have past a few restaurants driving around the U.S.A.

Tim Hortons is overall decent.
Their food is cheap in price, and usually "mediocre-to-good" in quality.
I'm not a big coffee-drinker, but Tim Hortons coffee is acceptable for me.
I prefer lighter-roasts, like Jamaican or Kenyan coffee with a sweeter and mellower flavour.

Krispy Kreme... I've only had their regular donuts.
They were all the rage in 2000-2001 when they first opened here, but lately are not popular.

Their regular donuts are very sweet and oily; fine if I'm in that kind of mood.

Also I can only eat one or two Krispy Kreme donuts at one time, but I could easily handle 4-5 Tim Horton's donuts before getting "sugar-and-fat-overload."

Tims all the way. I always thought of Dunkin as a bit of a dive. KK is ok as a treat once and awhile (i.e. every 2 years).

I love Tim Horton's soup and also their smoothie. Orange and Raspberry were my favourite flavours.

Tim Hortons. No contest. I don't eat donuts, but their scones, etc., are quite good. Good sandwiches. Decent prices. Very good service. Nice enough "decor"--certainly better than the other places. VERY good coffee. One of the many things that Canada does exceptionally well. Wish we had 'em in Virginia--I'd take one over a Starbucks any day.

My favorite is a toasted bagel with creme cheese for something like $1.75.
That's the same price as one of those small hamburgers in a Canadian McDonalds and it's definitely more filling.

They give you a selection of a few different styles of bagels and different kinds of creme cheese. The cheese selection is "plain", "plain light", "light and strawberry flavouring" and "herb and garlic."

If I can get a warm Krispy Kreme I'd like that, but otherwise I'd pass them up entirely.

As far as donuts go, I can't for the life of me distinguish the taste difference between Tim Hortons and Dunkin Donuts.
