Social media reacts passionately to the return of Tim Hortons' retro donuts
When Tim Hortons announced that it would be bringing back two much-loved donuts for a limited time, people got incredibly excited.
This launch is finally here (May 31) just in time for National Donut Day on June 2.
There are so many discontinued Tim Horton’s items we wish would come back and everyone has their favourites. The reveal was bound to make some very happy and others disappointed.
The Walnut Crunch and the Cherry Stick donuts are back for a limited time across Canada. Both varieties have been absent from the menu for over 10 years.
Many have taken to social media to air their surprise, excitement, disgust, and more.

Only now they’ll be 1/2 the size and 2.5x the price.

Maybe it’s nostalgia or my fading memory, but the @TimHortons #walnutcrunch just ain’t what it used to be. It’s smaller (but now a pricier premium donut) and lacked the crunchy edges and generous glaze of its namesake. Or maybe mine was from a bad batch. pic.twitter.com/PEva9bKsNj
