Beginning tomorrow, November 26th, Canada's favourite coffee and donut chain Tim Hortons is going to make the end of 2020 a little easier on us all—but not so easy on our waistlines—by making a six-pack of assorted donuts cost only 60 cents through Uber Eats at participating restaurants in Canada.

It's all part of a #TBT campaign by the food delivery arm of the vehicles-for-hire company to send customers time travelling back to 1964 when the Canadian hockey player Tim Horton opened his very first store, the Tim Horton Donut Shop, and a donut only costed 10 cents.

These days, they cost about $1.10 before taxes.

"At Uber Eats, we know 2020 has been a challenging year for many," Lola Kassim, General Manager of Uber Eats Canada said in a statement sent to Time Out Montreal. "That's why we're taking our customers back to a better time with Uber Eats Throwback Thursdays."

With that promise of an ongoing trend Canadians can expect to see from the company, where other chains should be selling food at prices today's parents and grandparents were around to enjoy, Uber plans to partner with more restaurants in the coming months to offer classic menu items at their classic prices in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. 

We're looking forward to chilling on the couch, binge-watching a Christmas movie for the six millionth time, and eating a whole pack to ourselves—or sharing them with whoever we live with, because, you know: 'Tis the season and all that.
