The orange beauty above is a Tim Hortons Buffalo Crunch doughnut (a yeast doughnut dunked in Buffalo sauce and crusted with corn chips). It’s being served this weekend at The Great New York State Fair in Syracuse, and some people are weirdly incensed about it. Here’s what Gawker had to say, in a post titled “Is Canada Mocking Us With This Fucking Doughnut”:

This Frankenstein swimming pool…proves that Canadians have a bizarrely passive-aggressive but thoroughly performative sense of humo(u)r. The Buffalo Crunch doughnut is only an embarrassing repeat of the grotesque pizza cake, another misfire by the food-confused Canucks. What are you guys doing up there? Leave our food mashups alone.

According to Global News, the doughnut was invented by a Syracuse franchisee (who is, admittedly, Canadian by birth) and it’s not going to show up on Canadian menus anytime soon.
