The Caramel Salted Doughnut

FullSizeRenderWhile at Tim Horton’s the other day, I spotted a new doughnut that I had never seen there before. It was the Salted Caramel Doughnut. I was really excited about this because I love salted caramel things.

The chocolate glaze on it kind of overpowered the other flavors upon first bite but the salted flavor was apparent. It didn’t really have that strong pop of salted caramel that I am used to experiencing with other similarly flavored treats which was disappointing. Don’t get me wrong it was really good and all, it just lacked the strength of flavor I desired. It was really crunchy, which is something different from the other doughnuts I have had from Timmy’s.

Tim Horton’s alway has different specialty doughnuts which vary by holidays or just limited time only flavors.

I’d definitely get it again, but it’s not a favorite.

  1. Salted caramel is one of my favorite flavors so I will definitely have to give this a try. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! The only thing that worries me from your picture is the amount of salt on it. I’m surprised that even with all that salt you said the salted caramel flavoring wasn’t that strong; I wouldn’t have guessed that. Luckily we have the Tim Horton’s on campus so I can easily get one!


  2. The doughnut looks so so good! I usually tend to get the classics like old fashioned chocolate glazed or just plain glazed, sometimes even Vanilla Dip at Tim Hortons. The flavor idea sounds so delicious and I think I might just have to go tomorrow and try it! Your review was super helpful! Like Julie said, the amount of topping on the doughnut is overwhelming, I may have to split it with someone! Great blog idea though, I can’t wait to see more delicious doughnuts!!


  3. I’ve actually tried this! When I saw it for the first time I got really excited. Just the title of the doughnut sounds enticing. But, after receiving one, I’m just sticking with the old fashion chocolate glaze. The doughnut was good, however, it was crunchy like you said and it was tacky to me teeth. I’m not a huge fan when my teeth stick to food like that so I usually avoid things that do that, but it was a tasty treat!


  4. I really love your blog. This is an awesome idea. Doughnuts for me are something I am always in the mood for. I love Tim Hortans and all of their specialty doughnuts that other places don’t have, but I agree with you about this one. I have tried it before and it is definitely not my favorite. It has too much going on and is too sweet for me. I look forward to keeping up with your blog. Krispy Kremes are my favorite and now I really want to go eat a dozen.


  5. As someone who loves all things salted, carmel, or chocolate the three elements combined are pretty much all I could ever ask for. Although my anticipation over trying this donut is somewhat decreased I will have to test it out to see if I felt the same way… and to ingest three of my favorite ingredients at once.


  6. This blog is such a great idea! I really think you should keep posting after this class, I like that you took something as simple as Doughnuts and made it interesting. The pictures you post with your review of them is great, I really enjoy reading them.
