OAKVILLE, ON, June 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Inspired by a creative competitor that 
appeared on Food Network Canada's Donut Showdown (Tuesday, 10pm ET/PT), Tim 
Hortons' donut line-up has a new addition. Now available, the Apple Cobbler 
Donut has been added to the Tim Hortons donut menu and guests have an 
opportunity to taste the delectable new creation, along with a small coffee, 
at a special introductory price of just $1.99. 
"Tim Hortons is synonymous with Canada's favourite coffee and donuts. Donuts 
are an iconic part of our menu, which is why we are always introducing new and 
exciting offerings," said Donna Finelli, Vice President Marketing, Food & 
Merchandise, Tim Hortons "Food Network Canada's Donut Showdown was a great 
opportunity for talented chefs to come up with a new creation for our guests 
and we couldn't be happier with the way the Apple Cobbler Donut turned out!" 
Now available, the new Apple Cobbler donut was inspired by Chef Trista Sheen, 
a Toronto-area executive chef. The new creation is a bloom donut dipped in 
vanilla fondant, with an open-faced spiced apple filling, topped with cobbler 
crumbs. Sheen was one of three competitors vying for the chance to have 
their donut creation featured in Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada; she 
also received $10,000 courtesy of Tim Hortons.

the donuts to epicurean heights, with three of the best donut makers from
