Thankfully, a few forward thinking customers have helped to tweak a number of our favourite menu items, and they sound delicious.

Here are 11 Tim Hortons menu hacks to know!
Make an iced nutella drink with this Ingredient
Apparently, ordering a drink that tastes like it’s laced with Nutella is as easy as asking for a hazelnut flavour shot to be added to your Iced Cap. If you’re obsessed with Nutella, this take on the classic Iced Capp will be your new go-to.
A cotton candy flavoured drink is possible!
Another drink hack that is going to make you drool, is this delicious cotton candy-tasting chilled drink. All you have to do is order a frozen raspberry lemonade, and ask for the lemon flavour to be swapped for vanilla. Voila — cotton candy in liquid form.
Create the ultimate breakfast sandwich
This little trick using a hash brown is a game-changer! The next time you order a breakfast sandwich, instead of getting your hash brown on the side, get the folks at Timmie’s to stick it in your sandwich for some extra crunch. This is also a good hack if you’re a vegetarian, as you can get the hash brown as a sub for bacon or sausage.
Try The “Wayne Gretzky” If You’re Addicted To Sugar
This drink is definitely not for the faint of heart considering the amount of sugar in it, but if you want to treat yourself, by all means. Hockey player Wayne Gretzky was known for wearing number 99 on his jersey, hence the 9 sugars and 9 creams in this drink. Don’t act surprised! We told you this one was intense.
Getting a Chai tea white hot chocolate is easier than you think
You’re probably wondering why you never thought of this, as it’s literally what the name implies. Rather than drinking your white hot chocolate on it’s own, ask for the Timmie’s employee to add a chai tea bag.
Swap out your bagel for a doughnut
If mixing savoury and sweet is something you’re into, swap out your bagel for a doughnut. This smart Canadian substituted a chocolate glazed doughnut when they ordered a BLT, and the outcome looks mouth-watering.
You can order a veggie bagel – you just have to ask for it
Most original Tim Hortons sandwiches come on bagels, but what if you want one sans meat? Literally order the bagel with all the fixings, BUT hold the lunch meat, and you will have created yourself a nice little veggie sandwich. This is even better if you’re vegan and don’t want any cream cheese for obvious reasons.
Yes, A coffee crisp hot chocolate is as good as it sounds
As soon as we heard the word coffee and crisp in one sentence, we were sold. Well, it turns out you can order a make shift Coffee Crisp hot chocolate at Tim Hortons by ordering a white hot chocolate with a shot of espresso. The strong coffee flavour, mixed with the sweet hot chocolate is very reminiscent of a Coffee Crisp chocolate bar.
Order a chocolate Timbit Iced Cap if you want to drink dessert
This decadent drink is exactly what is sounds like: dessert in a cup. It is the perfect fix if you can’t decide between a Timbit and an Iced Capp because it’s both. The finished order will be an Iced Capp, dressed with whipped cream and finished with a chocolate Timbit on top.
Something called the “Saturn Timbit” exists and it’s delicious
While this may be the most annoying secret menu item for employees to make, it’s seriously delicious. The next time you’re in Tim Hortons, ask for for your Timbit to be cut in half, toasted, and for whipped cream to be added to the middle. The end result is a Timbit that kind of resembles a planet.
You can Get Warm doughnuts anytime
Want a doughnut that tastes like it was made fresh to order? Simply order your fave doughnut but ask for it to be warmed up or toasted. We hear that this hack works best on the sour cream glazed doughnuts!
