Weird Food Alert: Tim Hortons' Buffalo Sauce Latte

Weird Food Alert: Tim Hortons' Buffalo Sauce Latte”

It has all the makings of your classic latte, plus "Buffalo sauce flavor" and "a dusting of zesty Buffalo seasoning".

Buffalonians typically recoil when someone says "Buffalo wings" or "Buffalo sauce" - "they must be from out of town!" - but the new specialty latte is surprisingly drinkable. Mochas, vanilla lattes and good ol'espresso have given Tim's lovers a lot of joy but the Buffalo flavour has me re-thinking my morning coffee.

This press release features multimedia.

'The unlikely pairing of sweet mocha and tangy Buffalo sauce come together to create an unexpectedly delicious sweet and spicy treat we hope our guests will enjoy'.

Tim Hortonsrecently launched a new espresso line-up featuring premium, handcrafted espresso beverages including lattes, Americanos and cappuccinos - each available hot or iced. The Canada-based fast food company has introduced a spicy buffalo-sauce-flavored latte to wake you up and get your stomach rumbling. Probably not. Is it better than what Tim Hortons produced before?

Twitter reactions were split between utterly grossed out and proud of the "Buffalonian" drink.

In an aggressive publicity push, the popular chain has announced a limited-time Buffalo Latte ($2.79 for a small) for two area locations: 4849 Transit Road, Depew; and 3470 Main St.
