Tim Hortons bringing back Classic Menu Items for 50th Anniversary

Dec 19 2017, 10:07 am

In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, Tim Hortons is bringing back some of its long-lost fan favourite classic menu items from the past five decades.

Via the Bring It Back campaign, customers can vote for their favourites, and ultimately decide which special treat returns to the regular menu in stores for a limited time.

“For 50 years Tim Hortons has been updating its menu to suit the evolving tastes and preferences of our guests, and with that, some menu items have come and gone, yet we continue to receive requests to bring back beloved menu items,” said Glenn Hollis, vice-president of marketing, in a statement.

Over the next five weeks Tims will announce five lost menu items from the past half century. Once all the competitors are revealed, customers can online to vote on their choice from May 1 to May 14.

The winning item will be announced May 15, ahead of Tims’ 50th birthday on May 17, and will return to store shelves later in the year.

The first contender in the running comes to us from the 1960s, and is the chocolatey, doughy, creamy Eclair.

Like peace, you should give the Eclair a chance. Dipped in chocolate fondant, then sliced and filled with whipped topping, this tasty treat rose to popularity across Canada in the ‘60s. You know what else was popular then? Granny glasses and bellbottoms. If those fads were able to make a comeback, Tim Hortons thinks the Eclair certainly can to.
