Love it or hate it, there’s no arguing that café mega-chain Tim Hortons isn’t an iconic Canadian institution, from its original roots in Hamilton to its national domination today.
Timmies has decided to capitalize on its iconography by releasing a range of ice creams to grocery stores across the country, each one designed to capture the flavours the coffee giant is known for.
I just tried the new @TimHortons ice cream. It's soooo good and tasty! I really loved all the flavours! Can't wait to try the other ones. If anyone wants to try them, they currently sell them at Walmart, couldn't find them at other grocery stores yet tho. pic.twitter.com/dEsRVQ5Yic

A news release from Tim Hortons explains that the company has partnered with Shaw’s Ice Cream in Tillsonburg, Ontario to develop ice cream flavours like Salted Caramel Iced Capp, Double Chocolate Donut, Fruit Explosion, Apple Fritter, and Birthday Cake Timbits.
All of the ice creams are made with 100 per cent Canadian dairy and will become available at groceries stores across Canada through the coming weeks including Longo’s, Metro, No Frills, Fortinos, Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, Walmart, and Sobeys.
“Tim Hortons has been a beloved taste of Canada since 1964 and we’re really excited to be re-imagining some of our most popular flavours as ice creams,” says Sourabh Malik, vice president of CPG at Tim Hortons.
