The Bacon Maple Donut
Joe just went to Portland and his trip inspired me to do this.   In Portland sits one of the craziest donut shops in the world called Voodoo Doughnuts.   This shtick to this place is that it serves all different kinds of donuts including donuts with fruit loops or oreos stacked on it, or a cock n balls shaped donut and other crazy variations.  One of their best donuts is the bacon maple bar which is a maple donut with bacon on top.

I stopped by Tim Hortons for a ice cap, and ordered a Canadian Maple Donut with cream inside and a side of bacon for an extra 60 cents.   I placed the bacon on top of donut and took one big bite.  This thing was fantastic, my face smiled when the hit of maple bacon flavour rampaged through my mouth.  Soo good, it trumps the Portland version because you also get cream in the donut.  Even my female friend was amazed how good this was.

The one thing to note is that the bacon comes in a soup container.  In the spirit of saving the environment ask the Tim Horton's person to place the bacon on top of your maple donut.  Not only do you get to see her face when you make this odd request but you also do your part in saving the world.

All in all, if you love bacon, you will lose your mind on how good this combination is.   Think about it Bacon X Maple X Cream X Fried Goodness = AMAZING!!!!!

For those wondering : 210 cal for the donut + 25 cal for the bacon = 235 calories.

Can you also tell us how many grams of trans and saturated fat are in there?

Can't wait for the legions of foodies to start doing this at the Timmies around town! How was the bacon at Timmies? Ron loved the Voodoo Doughnut version but I found the bacon overburnt. Maybe I'll have to try this again but do it Timmie version.

The bacon was alright, it lacked the crispness that I like but in this weakened state it accompanied the donut much better.
