This might sound odd, but I’m not really into sweets. I used to love chocolate as a kid. When I entered my twenties, my taste changed. I developed an appreciation for all things tart or sour! Give me lemon or lime flavoured anything and I’m your friend for life. This said, there’s one sweet thing that I have a weakness for. It’s the combination of hazelnut and cocoa.
Hazelnut and cocoa are the perfect marriage of sweetness and creaminess. My Mother’s Day brunch is complete with delicate crêpes filled with sliced strawberries, bananas and some Nutella!
From April 15 until June 9, Tim Hortons guests can enjoy three new Nutella menu items at Tims – a Chocolate Hazelnut Donut filled with Nutella, Pastry Pockets filled with Nutella and a Nutella Spread option for any bagel. From April 15 to 29, Canadians will also have the chance to share a photo on Instagram or tell @TimHortons on Twitter who they want to #SpreadTheLove to using the hashtag for a chance to win a Tim Card for themselves and a friend.
How sweet it is to spread the love with a friend!
Little One and I went on a Mommy/daughter date and she asked for Tim Hortons Chili. While there, we were able to try the new Nutella menu items.
- Chocolate Hazelnut Donut filled with Nutella
- Bagel with Nutella spread
- Pastry Pockets filled with Nutella
On my Instagram, a childhood friend of mine likened the Chocolate Hazelnut Donut filled with Nutella to a “Ferrero in donut form”! Now that I think about it, she’s right!
Little One, like me, appreciates rich, sweet, decadent flavours in small doses. A little taste satiates our sweet tooth. She shared a pastry pocket and I think that Little One enjoyed that the most. The light, flaky pastry and just a bit of sweetness from the Nutella were just right.
I’m thinking of picking some of these up for our next party.
