I generally don’t include photos of myself in blog posts, but this photo truly reflects how I was feeling at the CNE media preview. I just couldn’t stop smiling. Please continue reading so you can find out why I was smiling!!

The food served at the CNE is creative, fun, tasty, and memorable!! There is a reason why more than a million people flock to the CNE every year. Here’s what caught my attention at this year’s CNE media preview.

1. Tim Hortons served a Honey Dijon Ham  Pretzel Donut Sandwich that was simply too good for words. I had one bite – then two bites – and then I had to force myself to put it down. I’m still thinking about this sandwich as I write about it as I wanted to eat the ENTIRE thing.ex - tim sandwich

2. Tim Hortons also served  two Timbits (cotton candy and cola) as well as a Tim Horton Poutine. It’s described as a sweet “poutine” made out of Timbits  and decked out in delicious decadent dessert toppings. I had the Timbits (I’m a huge fan) but will have to return for the poutine!!

4. This Frosted Flake Battered Chicken on a Stick  (from Iron Skillet Sirloin Tips) also caught my attention. There was something about mixing sweet with savoury, plus a bit crunchy – that really appealed to me. It was truly Grreaaaaat. (Tony the Tiger would approve. I’m sure of it).

6. Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese from Bacon Nation: 6 strips of bacon weaved around a grilled cheese sandwich. Need I say more? I will happily run a few more kilometres so I could consume one of these sandwiches!

I hope this blog post has inspired you to head the CNE for some imaginative offerings!!

I use to go to a nutrionist who told  me that it was ok to have ONE Timbit. How could I argue? Therefore I have been enjoying ONE Timbit for probably ten years now. I dont have a Timbit every day but I’m sure I have a Timbit 3 times a week

I usually order a sour cream glazed Timbit at my local drive thru but if I’m at a larger  Tim Hortons location, I will order the cinnamon or those powdered icing sugared Timbits.  A week ago, I noticed that Tim Hortons has introduced two new flavors. Naturally I had to try them. I am positively over the moon with the banana flavor. I tweeted about it and I received a tweet that it tastes just like a deep fried banana. Personally, I think it takes like a banana muffin. I’m crossing my fingers that that this flavor will be around to for a long long time.

The other flavor that was introduced was blueberry: Sorry – but it pales in comparison to the banana.

Congratulations to Tim Hortons on introducing a great new flavor to your Timbit line up. Now only if I could win a roll up and

win! PS. Special thanks to my DD, who helped me style the photo. It was her idea to put the banana in the photo!!
