In honour of its 50th anniversary, Tim Hortons is turning back the clock and bringing back one classic menu item for a limited time.

The company began unveiling the candidates at the end of March – one item per decade – and voting will begin on May 1.

“For 50 years Tim Hortons has been updating its menu to suit the evolving tastes and preferences of our guests, and with that, some menu items have come and gone, yet we continue to receive requests to bring back beloved menu items,” said Glenn Hollis, Tim Hortons’ vice president of marketing, in a press release.

“Bring It Back is our way of saying thank you to our loyal guests for the past five decades. We hope it sparks fond memories for Canadians and Tim Hortons employees from coast to coast.”

Here are the items that are in the running:

  • From the 1960s – the eclair
  • From the 1970s – the sugar twist
  • From the 1980s – the pecan butter tart
  • From the 1990s – the chocolate sour cream glazed donut
  • From the 2000s – the bread bowl

If you want to vote to bring back one of the above items, you can do so until May 14 at TimsBringitBack.ca or www.Facebook.com/TimHortons.

The winner will be announced on May 15.

    Anyone else with me in wishing that they didn’t change their menu every 3 months? I liked the cherry timbits (discontinued), the blueberry timbits (limited time), the blueberry fritter (discontinued) and their grilled steak panini (discontinued).
