Review: The scariest thing about Tim Hortons “Halloween Donut Supreme” is hidden inside

Tim’s has come out with a new festive donut. It’s called the “Halloween Donut Supreme” and they’re looking to capitalize on the customers who are big into Halloween. Don’t blame them as the bright colours draw you in.

The oversize donut, which is laced with orange, black, and white sprinkles, can literally be gobbled within 5-6 bites. The actual donut portion is the same that’s found in the Honey Dip, sans glaze. Overall it’s a good product, costs a bit more than the standard donut by $0.20 at $1.15, but that’s what you get for wanting a premium celebration baked good. The donut also comes with a “edible” decal, which I opted out of, but again in the Halloween arena. There’s six to choose from: ghost, pumpin, cat, spider, witch, and an owl. Under the sprinkles, holding everything together, looks to be a chocolate glaze.

Inside is a different story. When you bite into this spooktacular beast of flour you’re graced with the “supreme” portion, what I believe is the same filling as the Boston Creme – so like a delicious sweet vanilla pudding – and piped in from both sides. Welcomed, but an overkill on sugar.

According to Tim Hortons Nutrition Calculator the Halloween Donut Supreme has a whopping 350 calories and 54 grams of carbs, 13 grams of fat (that is slightly bonkers), 5 grams of protein, 2 grams of fibre, and 19 grams of sugar. Overall the “Halloween Donut Supreme” is a good donut for those wanting to have an mild, but short lived overdose. The design of the “HDS” is nice, but thankfully it’s here for a limited time. Too many of these would seriously wreak havoc on your system and make you pack on the pounds – which is scary.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! The Halloween Donut Supreme is just like you'd imagine. Scary and widely obscene. It's a biggie when compared to other festive donuts -- both in size and calories.

I'm obsessed with Tim Hortons. It runs through my veins and I've probably spent enough money downing Steeped Tea's that I could have purchased my own franchise.
