Weird Food Alert: Tim Hortons' Buffalo Sauce Latte

Sorry, It's Only Available in Two Locations

Congratulations, Buffalo, New York. You're able to try one of the weirdest coffee flavor pairings we've seen yet.

Tim Hortons has concocted the Buffalo Latte as a stunt to promote its new line of espresso drinks, which the chain is introducing in the Buffalo area. It's "made from freshly brewed espresso, steamed milk, mocha, and bold Buffalo sauce flavor," and is "topped with whipped topping and a dusting of zesty Buffalo seasoning."

The drink, priced at $2.79 and up, is only being sold at two locations: 4849 Transit Road in Depew, New York, and 3470 Main Street in Buffalo, while supplies last.

Why does this even exist, you ask? Tim Hortons was ready with an answer.

"Tim Hortons and Buffalo sauce were both born in 1964, so why not take these two Buffalo staples and combine them?" Stephen Goldstein, regional president of Tim Hortons U.S., said in a statement. Which makes a certain kind of sense, but not much.

The espresso drinks are set to expand into other cities through December.
