They have like twenty different kinds of donuts, but only allow a maximum of 4 varieties in a box of a dozen. Even if they tasted like ambrosia from heaven I wouldn't be buying any with a dumb restriction like that.

This is more of a grind my gears thing but half the Tim Horton's donuts should be outlawed!

Everytime someone brings a dozen or half dozen into the office, half of them are those inedible ones that no one wants, like the plain donuts. People eat the maple, chocolate dip, sprinkle, and boston cream. Then nobody wants the rest that are in there ever and they sit there stale and get thrown out.

I just don't like their old fashioned, and will tolerate the rest, moreso if someone else bought them. At least they finally, finally improved their honey dip so it almost resembles what they made 20 years ago.

I'm sure Photon and some others like the Honey Crullers but nobody eats them here. Everybody gets the actual dipped donuts and leaves the rest or they get begrudgingly eaten with complaints at the end of day if someone is hungry. They are just overly floury/starchy whether it's the old fashioned to the bear claw.

I like the honey cruller because it's so sweet I can taste it in my soul. It's so sweet my unborn children got diabetes.

I might need to buy some new fresh yeast as well and hope for better results.
Proof your yeast, even if new. I've had terrible luck with new yeast the past while - multiple jars just full of dead yeast.

NSFW!
You know what grinds my gears? The ####ing donkey who numbered those donuts. From left-to-right, top-to-bottom, like everything else in the English-####ing-language, they'd be

1-2-3-4
5-6-7-8
9-10-11-12

Instead some weirdo numbered them

10-6-8-11
2-1-12-9
7-3-5-4

Who does that?! #### that image.

I assumed it must be some sort of ranking because otherwise it makes no sense.

I pulled it off Google images. Obviously ranked by a madman.

Thanks for posting. I did not know Tim's had a caramel filled chocolate dipped donut (#2 in the picture.) That sounds very interesting and I actually want to try that now.

I love me a plain-ish donut. The only one from Tim Horton's I somewhat enjoy is the sour cream glazed, as it has a slightly savory and less sweet taste to it. The rest of their offerings are sub-par.

Pro-tip for the pro-Safeway donut crowd at least at the North Hill location. Single donuts from the cabinet are $1.49 now(!), but there's a wheeled wire rack cart (usually in front of the bakery counter) with a box of 6 assorted donuts for $3.99. They were still as tasty as the ones in the cabinet.

After the big renos the glorious cabinet-of-donuts is unfortunately only 1/2 of a single cabinet now...but 6 donuts > 4 donuts....
