Tim Horton's Introducing Buffalo flavoured Latte in US

And in other WTF news, Tim Horton's has introduced a Buffalo wing flavoured Latte. It looks like US only at this point.

Tim Hortons is taking buffalo sauce beyond the chicken wing with its newest menu item.

The Canadian-based coffee chain announced today that it will be rolling out a bold new Buffalo Latte to accompany the launch of its expansive espresso line.

The drink was created to honor Tim Horton and Buffalo sauce, which both started the same year.

“Tim Hortons and Buffalo sauce were both born in 1964, so why not take these two Buffalo staples and combine them?” says Stephen Goldstein Regional President of Tim Hortons US.

According to a press release, the saucy beverage will be “made from freshly brewed espresso, steamed milk, mocha, and bold Buffalo sauce flavor” and topped with whipped cream and “a dusting of zesty Buffalo seasoning.”

“The unlikely pairing of sweet mocha and tangy Buffalo sauce come together to create an unexpectedly delicious sweet and spicy treat we hope our guests will enjoy,” Goldstein said.
Yeah, I often envy the stuff they get in the states and not available here but in this case, I don't think so.

They really jumped the shark there... Tim Hortons is an also-ran in the USA and always will be, unlike in Canada where in most places you can't drive less than a mile before you see the next one.

How do you find out what the next "new item" at TH will be? Look at the menus over at Starbucks and McCafe (breakfast), if there isn't a copycat of an item yet at Tim's, soon there will be.
(pumpkin spice, cappuccino, latte, dark roast, breakfast biscuits... and so on. All of those things had been McD and Sbux items for years before TH cloned them)

"America runs on Dunkin" and on Starbucks. And Tim's will always be way back trying to catch up to them.

Dunkin' used to be here. (Toronto, Ontario) They left for similar reasons. TH just knows how to tie a knot and hang on in the U.S. I guess...
