About This Quiz

Tim Hortons has been around since the 1960s, serving up coffee that's mysteriously addictive to Canadians from coast to coast. In the years since they first showed up, they've expanded beyond just coffee and Tim Bits to everything from chicken strips, chili, turkey bacon club sandwiches and more breakfast sandwiches than you can shake a stick at.  They're a full-service restaurant and a Canadian institution. How many times have you seen whole tables of people just sitting in a Tim's chatting the day away? It's like a modern-day town square in a lot of Canadian cities. Some people couldn't even imagine a day without at least one Double Double and maybe a honey cruller or a maple dip.

The Canadian identity is so wrapped up in Tim Hortons we just kind of take it for granted that they're on every street corner across the country. And the Tim Hortons identity is, in a lot of ways, wrapped up in what it means to be Canadian. In light of all of that, we think we can figure out fairly accurately where you come from in our great country based on nothing more than how you handle a Tim Hortons order. Do us a favor and order your favorites and we'll tell you where you come from!
