(quote) Virginia-182942 said: But tell me, do the Tim Hortons(es?) in Canada have butter tarts? We've tried getting them in NY and found that the Tim Hortons' staff didn't even know what they are. I've had to learn to make my own butter tarts.
No butter tarts at Tim's these days. They used to sell pecan butter tarts, but they were discontinued. They now have maple pecan danishes that sort of have a similar sugary syrup filling, but it's a completely different pastry.
There are rumors going around about Tim's bringing back discontinued menu items. www.thestar.com
However, as the article states, sometimes things are discontinued for a reason.
