You won't have to hunt for your colored eggs this spring, just head straight to the nearest bakery showcase at any U.S. Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurant.
This year, the bakery cafe chain has created a special Easter Egg Donut in celebration of the spring season.
The egg-shaped, yeast donut—available now through April 8—is dipped in chocolate fondant and accented with pastel-colored icing in honor of the egg-decorating pastime.
"It's always fun to celebrate the holidays with our guests," says Mike Meilleur, senior vice president of U.S. operations.
"The Easter Egg Donut is a new twist on a Tim Hortons classic that will bring out the little kid in all of us."
There is no extra charge for the egg-celent donut, it retails at the everyday price of an individual donut.
Tim Hortons is one of the largest publicly-traded restaurant chains in North America based on market capitalization. As of January 1, 2012, Tim Hortons had 714 restaurants in the United States and 4,014 restaurants systemwide.
