Which do you prefer and why? I love Tim Hortons for their great hot chocolate! I always buy about 6 cans of it and bring it back to the states with me!

Dunkin for their coffee, hands down. I'm SO happy that they finally decided to sell it in grocery stores out here.

Timmy's is a little too bitter for me.

As far as doughnuts go, Timbits and Munchkins are a dead heat for me. I *detest* Krispy Kreme.

Your East Coast roots are showing, michigas. Dunkin indeed.

We can agree on the KK yuck factor, though. Not sure where that outfit came from, and don't care to find out.

Strange how Timmys dominates Canada, Dunkin has the US east coast sown up, and the silly folks on the left coast figure that Starbucks invented coffee.

I always find it interesting that folks who favour Dunkin over Timmys or vice versa always seems to have strong feelings about the coffee flavours. There is seldom any middle ground.

Timmys makes a pretty useful hot apple cider concoction that's worth a whirl for those in a non-caffeine mood.

Tim Hortons for the jelly donuts. Dunkin for the boston creme. Krispy Kreme for their iced mocha drink.

Tim Hortons actually screens out the pits from their real rasberry and strawberry jelly. I like that because they dont get stuck in my teeth. I like their large cinnamon twists too.

But I grew up with Dunkin Donuts back east. Recently we got our first one in Nevada. First thing I bought was the boston cream. It just was not the same as I remember growing up.

Us silly folks on the left coast never even had Tim Horton's until the past 8 years or so.

Starbucks on the other hand opened up their second store outside of Seattle in Vancouver and have been present in our city and suburbs since the 1980's.

I remember watching the Olympics on TV as a kid when such and such was sponsored by... Tim Horton's! As far as we cared, Tim Horton's was only make believe. I didn't see my first Tim Horton's until 1990 in Kelowna. They only started opening in the Greater Vancouver area in 1999 or so, and only then in Esso gas stations.

You can always tell an Ontario transplant in Vancouver by the coffee they drink.

Since Tim Hortons merged with Wendys they are all over the place on Vancouver Island. I drink their coffee, but pass on the donuts etc....Too much saturated fat for me. I've never seen the other two in this area.

Deadly Donuts, Fatal Fries

I'd pass on the doughnuts at Tim Horton's as well. I can't stand frozen product! Their stuff is actually wet. Yuck. If I want a doughnut I'll stop at Lee's at Granville Island.

DD for coffee, KK for doughnuts, and TH in a pinch...

Actually, our favorite doughnut places seem to be family rum doughnut shops and bakeries. Honey Dew Doughnuts in MA also has a good thing going and their coffee color system is a good invention too.

My 4 year old wants to be a KK doughnut maker when he grows up and we had to check to see if there were any in Montreal before we told him we are looking into moving there. (there is one in Laval)

But what I am really hoping for is a great bakery walking distance in the neighborhood that has doughnuts and French pastries. YUMMY!
