The “bit” in the word Timbit is an acronym for Big In Taste, It is also a play on the word “tidbit” (a delicate bit or morsel of food).
From Phlorpedia, the free Encyclopedia-Canadiapedia*
“In Canada, donut holes are called Tim Bits and come in all the flavours of regular donuts, including jelly filled.
Tim Horton was a hockey player in the National Hockey League (big stuff in Canada). After he retired, he either bought or inherited a coffee store. Eventually, it grew like Dunkin Donuts.
They have this great marketing tool called “rrroll up the rim.” They use paper coffee cups so each one could be a winner. And, of course, better for the environment in terms of a paper coffee cup versus standard styrofoam.”
JudyBit: If Donut holes are TimBits and are BIG In Taste THEN:
- Black holes are BlackBits, Big in Time
- Wholesome holes are WholeBits and SomeBits, Big in Tofu or Big in Taste (take your pick, er Bit)
- Holy holes are HolyBits, Big in Theology
- Hidy Hey Hidy Holes are HidyBits, big in Tempo
If Bits are Big in Taste & Holes = Nothing then:
JudyBits are Big In Trivia which amounts to a delicate morsel of Nothing
(Sometimes she is Jelly filled)
