With so many Tim Hortons Timbits flavors available, it's easy to imagine trying them all to be as difficult as doing a Man V. Food challenge (what a blast from the past!)

However, I took up the challenge to try 'em all and discover which flavors are best.

Today, I'm going to bring you the best of these tasty Canadian treats so you can become a Timbits connoisseur like me. Let's jump right in!

There seems to be a lot of passion behind which Timbit flavor is the best, so I'm here to break it down for you![1]

1. Old Fashioned Plain

Tim Hortons Plain Timbits

I was initially curious about trying a Timbit that's no-frills, but the Old Fashioned Plain was really forgettable and plain.

It's incredibly hard to ignore that these are basically chunks of slightly-sweetened bread. This flavor's only redeeming factor is its soft texture and moist-ness.

I really wanted to dip the Old Fashioned Plain in something to break up the monotony of eating more than one in a row - not a good sign.

The Atlantic provinces were the only ones where Old Fashion Plain reigned as the most popular Timbits.[2]

2. Sour Cream Glazed Timbits

Tim Hortons Sour Cream Glazed Timbits

The Sour Cream Glazed is a different story - this is a masterpiece in simplicity and perfect if you're a sour cream lover. The combination of sweet and tangy is addictive.

While Canadian families on average ranked it as the third or fourth most popular Timbit, I think it's underrated.

It reminds me of this German sour cream cake I practically grew up eating and I got so nostalgic eating these.

The creamy flavor is lush and combines perfectly with coffee. If it’s your first time trying the bite-sized treats, I highly recommend starting out with the Sour Cream Glazed!

3. Chocolate Snowball

Amongst the most unique Timbit flavors, you'll find the Chocolate Snowball.

Rather than having a plain dough base, it's a chocolate Timbit covered in powdered sugar to resemble a snowball.

It's a cute idea, but the powdered sugar got all over my new shirt - watch out and learn from my mistakes!

I loved how cakey and moist the chocolate dough is - a huge improvement from the slightly sweetened bread vibes of the OG base.

The powdered sugar adds a nice sweetness but can overtake the subtle chocolate notes.

It's still being determined whether these have been completely discontinued or are just available seasonally.

4. Honey Dip Timbits

Tim Hortons Honey Dip Timbits

Canada's Western and Quebec provinces consider the Honey Dip the second most popular classic Timbit, and I have to agree that they're pretty delicious!

They don't have that overly sweet, sugary taste to them. Instead, they're covered in a warm honey flavor that balances out a subtly tangy flavor - almost a citrusy aftertaste!

The texture on the Honey Dip is grade-A and honestly reminded me of the Honey Cruller Timbits.

5. Apple Fritter Timbits

Tim Hortons Apple Fritter Timbits

Craving the comfort of grandma's apple pie?

You can now get it on the road with the Apple Fritter Timbits! These classic Timbits, regionally and worldwide, are very popular, with apple and cinnamon flavors and a sugary glaze to round out the experience.

I honestly wish that the apple and cinnamon notes were stronger and prefer the Apple Pie version.

This flavor is not to be confused with the limited edition Apple Pie flavor that they offer at different Tim Hortons restaurants!

6. Birthday Cake

Tim Hortons Birthday Cake Timbits

Birthday Cake holds the solid third place in all Canadian provinces and is one of the most popular in Tim Hortons restaurants globally. Controversially, I really don't see the hype.

With sprinkles, funfetti, and a rainbow assortment of colors, they may be sweet, but at least you know what to expect.

The sprinkles add a nice crunch and the glaze a good sweetness, but the base is still essentially the Old Fashioned Glazed in a wig. I wish they'd gone for a more cakey dough like the chocolate ones.

7. Lemon Timbits

Tim Hortons Lemon Timbits

Citrus desserts are some of my absolute faves, so of course I love Lemon Timbits.

The sweet and tangy flavors perfectly balance each other out but still feel light on the stomach.

I loved how they reminded me of lemon bars or key lime pies but without the post-dessert heaviness and guilt.

8. Old-Fashioned Glazed Timbits

Tim Hortons Old Fashioned Glazed Timbits

Out of all the Old Fashioned series, the Old Fashioned Glazed came out on top. 

Glazed donuts may seem easy, but they are a tricky balancing act to pull off. There's no fancy sauces or funky flavorings to hide behind - just the dough and the glaze.

I can see why people adore these classics. The glazed white cake balls are great anytime - not too sweet or heavy.

9. Raspberry Timbits

Tim Hortons Raspberry Timbits

Now I'm really getting into the standout Timbits flavors!

These nostalgia-invoking Timbits are a favorite among adults and children alike.

Just like the raspberry-filled, powdered-sugar-topped donuts from back in the day, these things are tasty but dangerous!

I'm glad I only ordered a couple of these - I could just devour a whole box in minutes, no problem.

10. Old Fashioned Sugar

Tim Hortons Old Fashioned Sugar Timbits
You know when characters in TV shows try to disguise themselves by donning a cloak and a pair of sunglasses and hope no one recognizes them? Yeah, this is the Old Fashioned Sugar.

It's the Old Fashion Plain attempting to disguise itself in a literal coating of sugar, and still, I see it for the bland ball of bread it really is.

It's not terrible - it's just nothing special.

11. Strawberry Timbits

Tim Hortons Strawberry Timbits

Sugary but not overwhelming, the Strawberry Timbits taste almost like cherry-filled donuts.

I found that these are either a love-em or hate-em situation, but they still remain very popular around Canada.

I personally could only have one or two at a time before the flavors became a bit overwhelming.

The fruity filling is also surprisingly runny so have a paper napkin at the ready (my shirt was really fighting for its life trying all these Timbits).

12. Chocolate Glazed Timbits

Tim Horton Chocolate Glazed Timbits

Now, onto the head honcho: the Chocolate Glazed Timbits!

They're consistently ranked as the most popular Timbit all around the country. After trying them for myself, I can absolutely see why!

They were perfectly cakey and moist while the glaze adds a lovely extra sweetness. I could easily devour an entire box of these by myself in minutes (seriously, don't test me).

My only minor gripe is that I wish the chocolate taste in the dough itself were a tiny bit stronger.

What’s Inside Tim Hortons Timbits? 

What is inside a Timbit at Tim Hortons will vary a bit due to their ingredients. This means that the nutritional values of each Timbit box will be a bit different.

However, I can give a pretty good estimation of what to expect:


You can expect to get about 50 to 90 calories per Timbit. This may vary some across the different flavors. 


Tim Hortons Timbits contain about 5 to 10 grams of sugar per donut whole. Considering most people eat more than one, Timbits aren't the healthiest breakfast option at Tim Hortons.


Timbits contain about 1.5 to 5 grams of saturated fat depending on the flavor.


Tim Hortons Timbits contain anywhere from 9 to 14 grams of carbs. This is not the healthiest option for people on a low-carb diet. 

If you're on the keto diet, you should limit your Timbits or opt for another breakfast item at Tim Hortons.

How Much Do Timbits Cost At Tim Hortons?

Timbits cost $1.99 for a pack of 10, $3.99 for a pack of 20, or $7.99 for a pack of 40.

You can also order just one Timbit for 29 cents! Pretty good deal, right?

You might just find yourself ordering boxes of local favorites.

What Are TimBiebs? (Justin Bieber & Tim Hortons Collab)

TimBiebs are exclusive (and wildly popular!) Timbits flavors made in collaboration with the pop star Justin Bieber.[3] The most popular is the Chocolate White Fudge for many.

It's like chocolate cake with an interestingly tangy/creamy background! Kind of like sour cream chocolate (I know that sounds weird, but it's delicious).

There always seems to be a new TimBiebs flavor, too.

The newest, is currently a French Vanilla-flavored Cold Brew Coffee! Others include Chocolate White Fudge, Sour Cream Chocolate Chip, and Birthday Cake Waffle!
