Tim Hortons Mother’s Day donut boxes are disguised as giant books

If you saw a giant book on the counter titled Frozen Expectations or Twenty thousand Timbits under the sea, you might find it weird, but probably not weird enough to assume it’s filled with donuts. That’s Tim Hortons goal this Mother’s Day.

In honor of moms around the world who put their children first day in and day out, even if it always means having the last pick in the donut box, Tim Hortons has decided to roll out Disguise donut boxes in select locations over Mother’s Day weekend. The boxes look like boring old books, but when you lift the lid, you’ll find a secret stash of six fresh donuts.

Whether you’re a mother looking to hide treats from her child or a child looking to spoil her mother, you can get a costume donut box with every purchase of half a dozen donuts. There’s a catch, though: At least for this pilot year, Sneak Boxes will only be available in Buffalo, Columbus, and Detroit on Saturday, May 8 and Sunday, May 9.

If it’s a dealbreaker, don’t worry, because there are other ways to celebrate no matter the Tim Hortons near you. You may remember the string Mothers’ Day DIY Donut Kits. Luckily, these are returning to all US locations this year from Wednesday May 5 through Sunday May 9.
