Tim Hortons Pumpkin Spice menu is back and Canadians love and hate it


Fall is in the air, although it’s not quite time to put away shorts and flip flops. No one is more in the spirit of fall right now than Canada’s favorite supplier of coffee, donuts and burgers Beyond Meat. The Tim Hortons Pumpkin Spice Mania is already in full swing, with a full line of beverages and baked goods featuring the flavors that have become so associated with a vegetable that no one else would eat.

Take your pick: Do you want an iced pumpkin and spice capp, tea, latte, latte, donut, muffin or Timbit? The choices are endless! Okay, these are actually the only choices, but still! It would be difficult to choose just one, right?

Well, don’t be so sure. As with everything Tim Hortons, it’s hard to tell if people really love the introduction of all pumpkin spice foods and drinks, or if they absolutely hate them. There are those who feel like they’ve waited forever for the return and the new line of pumpkin spice products and can finally enjoy it again.

Despite all the love for the fall menu, there are also plenty of Canadians who shake their heads at Tim Hortons and mumble “too soon.” In their defense, the pumpkin spice season, much like the Christmas season, seems to start earlier each year. Several people must have pointed out that Labor Day is generally considered the acceptable cut-off day for advertising anything pumpkin-spiced.

And on the other end of the spectrum, people have shared their utter, utter loathing for anything pumpkin-spiced, especially if it comes from Tim Hortons.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a story of how people react to Tim Hortons without also highlighting some of their orders that were completely sloppy.

Whether you love it or hate it, pumpkin spice season is officially in full swing. It might still be warm for a few more weeks, but at least you’ll feel like you’re taking a bite (or a sip) of fall.
