North of the Border Nirvana

At last, I have found pastry perfection, in the form of Tim Horton's doughnuts. I picked up a few on my home from Toronto yesterday, and I can honestly say I have never tasted a better doughnut. Firm (as opposed to the overinflated donuts from Krispy Kreme), flavorful, not at all greasy, with just the right amount of icing on top and filling in the middle. It was satisfying without being heavy (sorry, Dunkin' Donuts). I had a Canadian Maple (sweet without beign sickening) and a strawberry vanilla (again, not too much jelly in the middle, so no sticky mess squirting out the sides). The cup of coffee (actually an English Toffee cappucinno) complemented them very well.

From the first bite, I wanted to defect to Canada. If I had some way of keeping them fresh, I probably would have bought a dozen or two more and brought them back to the States. As it is, Tim Horton's is owned by Wendy's, and there are talks about expanding them en masse to the American market (there are a few dozen up near the US-Canada border).

According to their website, the closest Tim Horton's to Indy is in the Dayton, OH area. (Hmmm, is 75 miles too far to drive for doughnuts?) There are also some in Columbus, OH. I think the next time I'm driving to or from NJ, I'll track them down and pick up some road rations.
