The Chocolate Eclair is coming back to Tim Hortons!

5 discontinued Tim Hortons menu items battled it out for 2-weeks to potentially reclaim a spot on the shelf. The “Bring It Back” is now over there was over 200,000 votes casted and today it has been announced that the Chocolate Eclair was a fan favourite! This 1960’s beauty owned 40% of the total votes and will be coming back to the restaurants across Canada.

Here’s the percentage breakdown of each item:

  • Chocolate Eclair (1960): 40%
  • Sugar Twist (1970): 15%
  • Chocolate Sour Cream Glazed Donut (1980): 8%
  • Pecan Butter Tart (1990): 12%
  • Bread Bowl (2000): 26%

Tim Hortons previously declared that the winning discontinued menu item, which is the Eclair, “will make its comeback in-restaurant later this year.”

The Chocolate Eclair is a yeast donut that is dipped in chocolate fondant, then cut in half and filled with a “whipped topping.”

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.

    It wasn’t whipped topping inside it was like an icing of some sort….if you bring this back with changes ..its not gonna work!!!!!….

  • I want dutchie timbits back!

    Chocolate eclairs had whipped cream, not icing. Trust me, it’s my fave doughnut.

    Sooooo… when is this actually coming out?

    finally tracked one down, and it was disappointing. The filling was that gross fake ‘whipped product’ that they use on the iced caps (made that mistake only once!) I don’t remember that from my childhood.

    It’s April 2015 and I’ve only seen the chocolate eclair sold in 1 store in the Greater Toronto Area, in limited quantities. What’s taking so long with the roll-out?

    Finally saw an eclair at a Timmies today! Had to try it… It’s like all the other comments. Not real whipped cream and the pastry part just seemed like it was a knock off donut batter. Very disappointing.

    I haven’t found a Tims that carries these yet in Toronto. I miss them from the old days.

    I haven’t seen this at all on the West Coast. I work by a Tims and pass the counter 5 days/week. Still waiting for the eclair
