Tim Hortons is turning back the clock and bringing back a taste of the 1960s.

In honour of its 50th anniversary, the company unveiled five classic menu items – one per decade – and allowed the public to vote on which item they would like brought back for a limited time.

The candidates were the eclair, sugar twist, pecan butter tart, chocolate sour cream glazed donut and the bread bowl.

Voting ran from May 1-14 and Thursday morning they announced the eclair, which garnered 40% of the votes, as the winner.

“With over 200,000 votes counted as part of our Bring It Back campaign, and thousands of comments on social media, we couldn’t be more excited to be giving back to our loyal guests, by reintroducing for a limited time The Eclair in restaurant later this year,” Tim Hortons’ President & CEO Marc Caira said in a press release.

“Thank you to our loyal guests for taking a trip back in time to see how our menu has evolved over the past 50 years, and for sharing how Tim Hortons has been a part of Canadians’ lives since 1964.”
