TORONTO – Nutella lovers, rejoice. Next week, Tim Hortons will reveal three products featuring the beloved chocolaty, hazelnut spread.
The new items will include Nutella-filled donuts and pastry pockets. Step aside cream cheese — the classic bagel will also have the opportunity to step up its game with the option of a bagel with Nutella spread.
Nutella products will be rolling into Canada April 15 to June 9.
The news was first reported by Tim Hortons insider, Ian Hardy, on Insidetimmies.com. The company has since confirmed the release of Nutella products.

“This is a sweet day for Tim Hortons,” said brand marketing senior director, Julie Unsworth, in a statement.
“We’ve married the irresistible fresh taste of Tim Hortons baked goods with world-renowned Nutella to create a phenomenal flavour pairing that Canadians will fall head over heels for.”
The news is the latest in a string of announcements, as coffee and fast-food giants battle it out for java supremacy.
Earlier this month, Tim Hortons announced it would test a new coffee flavour in five Canadian markets. In March, Starbucks brought its artisanal pastry line, La Boulange, to Canada. Last fall, McDonald’s announced it would begin selling McCafe coffee in Canadian supermarkets — a move seen as a big step in competing with Timmies.
