Yeah. No chance I'm buying grocery store KK. Or any other grocery store donut for that matter.

I'm going to be one of those cool guys who say 'none of the above' when none of the available options are none of the above.

We have neither in the UK but even if we did I'd probably choose Krispy Kreme over both of them. Was impressed with Tim Horton's though and liked their Chocolate chip muffins. Really liked Dairy Queen whilst I was in Canada as well.

Yeah, it's pretty crazy how popular they are. There are 7 Tim Hortons in my University's campus.

I want to say I've run into a couple independent grocery stores that did their own out in the boonies that have been outstanding. But chain places in general suck the big one (haven't tried any from Wegman's and Publix who both do have some outstanding in-store stuff), and the brand donuts delivered to grocery stores are somehow even worse usually.

Dunkin - I've had TH's in Syracuse and it's not that good. Probably not the same as in Canada, though. Dunking has great customer service and clear menu choices.

Yes. I have no problem with Dunkin' at all.

I recently found out a Dunkin' was near my campus and I will try to visit Monday!

I've never had Tim Hortons. Do they make breakfast sandwhiches?

I only like Dunkin Donuts for the occasional donut.

Tim Horton's for sure.

Glazed Cinnamon roll, cheese croissant, Strawberry Vanilla donut, Jalapeno-asiago bagel with Herb and Garlic cream cheese, Creamy sun-dried tomato soup... yeah... I can go on forever.

At the U of A, we have the longest lines for Tim Horton's... it's funny because we have TWO of them in the same building, and at least four on campus.

Dunkin' Donuts is more of a treat for me, considering I may go there once every couple months when we cross the border. I don't even go to Timmies that much in Canada, there are a couple of local businesses that I much rather prefer. Both have far superior coffee and baked goods all made fresh daily, none of this frozen-then-thawed ********.

Here's a sweet story out of Edmonton, Canda: Yesterday morning an anonymous customer at a downtown Tim Hortons doughnut shop purchased 500 cups of coffee, asking the shop to give its next 500 customers coffee on him. According to the Canadian Press, the man spent a whopping $859, and the staff gave away the 500th cup early this morning. Customers were reportedly "thrilled."

Of the few times I've been to Tim Hortons, I've found their donuts vile and disgusting. That said I don't like Dunkin' Donuts either, I prefer Krispy Kreme. But as it's a choice between Dunkin' Donuts and Tim Hortons, I gotta go with Dunkin' Donuts.
