Tim Horton’s is using a Canadian favorite to celebrate the country’s 150th birthday.

On July 1, also known as Canada Day, Tim Hortons will offer the poutine doughnut — a Honey Dip Donut topped with potato wedges, gravy and cheese curds — at five of its restaurants, USA Today reports. The five restaurants are: Derby, Hamburg and East Aurora in New York, Rochester Hills, Mich., and Columbus, Ohio— all of which are located relatively close to the U.S.-Canada border.

“At Tim Hortons restaurants, we’re proud of our Canadian heritage and we want to share a piece of that in the United States,” Felipe Athayde, executive vice president of Tim Hortons U.S., told USA Today in a statement. “Our new Canadian inspired treats are a great way for Americans to get in on the 150th celebration of their friendly neighbor next door.”

The coffee chain will also offer other Canadian-themed treats on July 1, such as the Maple Bacon Iced Capp, which is topped with whipped cream, maple flakes and bacon bits, according to USA Today. Maple Timbits, which are maple flavored bite-sized doughnut holes, will also be available throughout the whole month of July.
